Old School Charm
When it comes to renovating on a budget, sometimes the best place to start is to identify an existing feature in your space that you love and work with it! We all have a long wish list of upgrades, but zeroing in on features that you like or can live with, will put your renovation into perspective and help save some money along the way. The design inspiration for my bathroom came from the existing claw foot tub with brass shower system and curtain rails that are original to the house circa 1914. Although a bathroom update was imminent, I chose to embrace the original charm and character of the vintage brass hardware and made that my design focus. By bringing attention to your favourite features, you set a clearer picture in your mind about what needs to go, stay or be improved. And a clear mind will lead to smart decisions and with a little luck, money well spent!
