Affordable Master Bathroom Options That I Hope Won't Look Affordable


 

Price is top priority when it comes to this bathroom renovation and is just as important as style. Like I mentioned in my previous post, we have no budget for demolition. What that means for this bathroom reno is that a lot of things are staying. Nothing will be ripped out, no plumbing will be reconfigured, no walls will be knocked out. Most of the changes will be cosmetic and really that's totally okay because everything in our bathroom works anyway, it's just that everything is, well...ugly.

Updating our Master Bath with NO Budget for Demolition

 When we first bought our home in 2007 the very first thing I did was to paint the master bath. I remember that day vividly. I was the only one in the house and I was so eager to add a personal touch to our new home. I had never painted walls in my life so this was a first for me. Seeing it now I think I did a pretty good job painting that bathroom. It took me all day and all night. I remember it was so tedious and time consuming to paint such a small space. I had to squeeze my brush into every little nook and cranny while making sure I wouldn't get  paint where there shouldn't be any. We went bold and chose a beautiful turquoise color that at that time complimented the color scheme in our master bedroom. Since that day, the master bathroom hasn't changed.

Updating The Master Bedroom With Simple Accessory Changes




SHOP THIS ROOM




When it comes to interiors it's no surprise to you that I'm a big believer in the power of accessories. Home accessories create ambiance, style and makes a space feel personal and finished. Home accessories also have the power to transform a room without having to spend a lot of money. Our master bedroom for instance, needed a quick dose of style. Before I made the changes, I felt that the bedroom lacked style. There was no pattern, no art, ho-hum lighting and because of that, to me the room looked flat. There wasn't much interest or dimension in the space.

Installing a Wall Mural to Dress Up a Desk Area


A special thanks to  this post's sponsor, Rebel Walls. A huge thanks for collaborating with me on this project ♡.

Last summer I redecorated my daughter's room with items I had collected for this space for almost a year. I'm in love with the transformation (see that post HERE) but what I didn't love was her desk area. It was all work and no fun. In other words, that area of her room had zero style whatsoever. I know the walls needed some dressing up and my initial thought was to add shelving  but I felt that doing so would make the space look even more messy. I could already imagine all the crap that would end up on those shelves creating a bigger eyesore than it already was. Plus, my daughter has other places in her room to store all her things that will keep them out of sight. With all the wires and screens all around, I needed this wall space to be more "beautiful" and less "utilitarian".
