How can you get the BLING in your remodel while keeping within a limited budget? By singing the REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE song. Here are a few examples:
We were able to save money in this bathroom remodel by REUSING the drain locations for the tub, shower and toilet. Because this condo had a post tension construction floor, drilling new drain holes would have been costly. We were able to use the savings to purchase more costly items such as the free standing tub.
This floating wood counter is a RECYCLED coffee table top. (I like to call this UPCYCLING) Purchasing a slab of wood with the ‘live’ edge and having it sanded & stained would cost considerably more for this home owner.
This living/entry area was spruced up with paint that accents the architectural features of the home creating interest and REDUCING project costs by not removing the wall.
REUSING this sustainable cork floor
resulted in significant savings for this kitchen/dining remodel as well as bringing welcomed warmth to the Seattle condo.
Sometimes budget restrictions create wonderful unique solutions that we may not have previously considered.
As always, I welcome your ideas and feedback, Think green and keep dry, Christine
