One thing that always annoys me about some remodeling projects featured in magazines or online is the massive construction efforts required to complete the "look" that the homeowner wanted to achieve. I don't know about you readers, but my family isn't always up for knocking a wall down here, installing granite countertops there or re-wiring an entire upstairs level just to achieve a vision in my head.
Living Area Before
The thing that most attracted me to this bungalow remodel was, not only the small size of the home, but the fact that remodel was done on a (gasp) budget and there were no major renovations in the form of construction that were performed to achieve their goals.
Living Area After
With the simple addition of some paint, a rug and a few artfully placed accessories, this living area was transformed into an airy, but cozy room that welcomes each visitor into the home with open arms.
By swapping out the old table with a new, round one that fits the area and placing it on a rug with some new light, airy window treatments, this dining area was transformed with no heavy demolition.
The guest bedroom's
With the simple addition of some wallpaper and new, inexpensive linens guests will be thrilled to spend a weekend in this charming space!
No room for a claw foot tub or jacuzzi? No budget for installation of a curtains-free shower? Not me!
This dull bathroom now has pizzazz with just a little wallpaper and the replacement of standard fixtures with some unique implements.
I'm not up for major construction. Please...no dust and demolition and excavation and months of rebuilding! I love the thought of a new look achieved with some fabric, new fixtures and artful re-arranging of furniture!
