7 Bathroom Design & Remodeling Ideas on a Budget – A Guest Post!

These days, I’m almost finished with the redecorating of our Master Bedroom. (I can’t wait to show it to you!) And while I’m almost finished with that, it’s starting to dawn on me that I need to get to work in our Master BATHROOM design. Mercy. I know for sure that new light fixtures are needed. Although I’d love to change out the vanity and add glass doors to the shower…I think those things will have to come later. In fact, if I make a list of the DREAM Master Bathroom, I think LOTS of my ideas will have to come later! HA!

So when Tim from JVPartnersNow contacted me to see if I was interesting in learning about budgeting when it came to bathrooms…I was all about it! Let’s see what he can teach us today…

There are a couple reasons why remodeling your bathroom is a good idea. The first is obviously to make your family more comfortable. The second is that having an updated or better looking bathroom can make your home more appealing when it comes time to sell it. However, if you have a tight budget, you might think that a bathroom remodel is out of the question. After all, it would cost $10,000 to $20,000 to do, right?

That isn’t necessarily the case, especially if you or anyone you know has experience with construction and plumbing. If you can do the work yourselves, you will save tons of money. Of course, you can also save money by choosing your remodeling changes wisely. Here are 7 fantastic ideas to get you started.

Master Bedroom Tour

I’m in the midst of a redecoration of our Master Bedroom. You know the kind: nothing is really “wrong” with anything, but one day I just walked in and was just…tired of it.

We’ve had the same bedroom decor scheme since we got married 4+ years ago. Somehow it just started to feel…dark…to me, for some reason. So I decided to change it up a bit.

Before I did anything, I photographed it – because it’s no fun to redecorate a room if there’s no before-and-after, right?! So check it out…

Welcome to our Master Bedroom!

Make Your Own Letterhead!

Earlier this week, I had the need to write a letter. But a nice letter, not a “I cannot believe the level of service your company has provided and I’m VERY unsatisfied with the results…”, etc. letter. (THOSE are the actual letters I normally write, but oftentimes I need to write a NICE letter!)

I got to thinking about it, and, although I’ve already designed many of our correspondence supplies (CLICK HERE), I hadn’t designed an actual household letterhead. Do YOU have a letterhead or a stationary for your family?

Considering I’ve designed multiple business stationary products for various companies, I figured it would be fairly easy. Until I decided I wanted it to be monogrammed.

That’s where I got stuck.

I don’t know all the “appropriate etiquette” and “proper rules” for monogramming. I didn’t know what else to do, other than pick a pretty font and play with the sizes of letters. That just seemed…ridiculous. So what did I do? I Googled it! And LOOK at what I found!!! CLICK HERE! Gotta love Wedding Chicks!

So I made my own! And here’s what I came up with:
