Awhile back I showed how one of my clients renovated her kitchen on a budget. Her strategy is to do one project at a time as her budget allows. She recently finished her bathroom renovation, and I thought I would share pictures of some of the stages.
Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the bathroom when she bought the house, but her first step was the least expensive: adding a bold blue paint color to set off the woodwork.
Next, she had me panel over the popcorn ceiling and swap out the light fixture. At that point, we also took out the horrible sliding shower door. Finally, she brought in a tile specialist to retile the tub area. A beautiful vintage rug was the finishing touch.
You probably remember the custom wooden bathroom vanity counter which I made and installed for her a few months ago. We had also swapped out the sinks, faucets and light fixtures. When the tile guys came in to retile the bathtub surround, they also put in a few tiles around the sink. I returned to install a little trim around the sink and mirror for a built-in look.
In pictures, it looks like this renovation happened overnight, but this took place over the space of about five years. It goes to show that with patience and planning, you can have a beautiful home on any budget.
Does your bathroom need a little TLC? Get in touch... I'll be glad to help.
