Welcome back to Robeson Design.
I am Rebecca Robeson.
我是 Rebecca Robeson
And today, we’re gonna talk Bathrooms.
You know over the years I had the opportunity to design some pretty cool bathrooms.
You know some of these before and afters in my projects,
they can get really expensive.
Everything included. Ah, all the materials,
design, the contractor fees.
It was about 35000 to do this.
Today is gonna be a day of reality,
because we are coming back to my house.
We’re gonna be doing a bathroom remodel in my own bathroom.
It’s a guest barthroom, I mean, it’s very seldom used,
which means: ding ding ding… It’s done on a budget.
When it came to the budget for my bathroom,
I decided nothing more than 2000 dollars.
But then it occured to me:
Why don’t I challenge myself?
I’m going to challenge myself
and see how big of a difference can I make on a small budget,
we’ll say, 300 dollars?
Or what if I double that. It has 600 dollars to spend.
What can I do, and where would I start?
And then I decided I’ll double that again.
1200 dollars. If I could do this bathroom remodel for 1200 dollars,
I think I could be… I really be proud of myself, for one,
and I think it’d be helpful for you.
So you’re ready to see what I did?
3 budgets, here we come.
So I’m gonna go upstairs and I’m going to unscrew my cabinet doors,
’cause I can DIY this, I swear.
Oh, that’s heavy.
I was gonna do this DIY, but I’m already sweaty.
It’s so close.
And that’s how it’s done.
Whether you rent or own,
the choices I’m gonna show you today are doable,
because you are not making major construction changes.
OK, now it’s the great time for me to tell you,
I’m gonna make this cultured marble, which is “ew…”
look great in this quick remodel.
But if you really wanna know how to do it right,
you should join the Design Sessions.
We recently did a design session on countertops,
which would be solid stone,
we have quartzite, and granite and marble.
We’ll tell you all the things you need to know
if you are gonna be replacing any countertops,
or even backsplashes or big walls and stuff in solid stone.
So go check out the Design Sessions. It is on my website.
It’s not on YouTube.
In this 300-dollar budge remodel,
I started with the things that were cheap, easy to do,
but I knew it would make an impact.
The most obvious and biggest impact
was painting those dark walls out to a beautiful white.
I repainted the cabinet doors in the same colour.
We replaced a light trem on the ceiling,
you know, that used to be a heat lamp back in the day.
In order to cover up the shower
and not be able to see in there all that mixed match stuff,
I needed a new shower curtain.
But you know what, for me personally,
I cannot stand a shower curtain that is so short, it doesn’t go to the ceiling.
You wanna know how I made this beautiful custom-looking shower curtain?
I’m gonna teach you this trick.
And I swear if there is nothing that you can get out of this video, get this
Buy two shower curtains,
very same thing.
Use the second curtain for the extra length that you are gonna need
add to the bottom of the first shower curtain.
Sew them together, iron them out,
floor to ceiling shower curtain, makes a big impact.
And then of course it doesn’t cost hardly anything
Those lights switches, the outlets
and even the calking around the tub around the sink.
Those kinds of things, that’s just cleaning up and maintenance.
but boy, it’ll make an overall big difference.
I did a few of other things
like a little bit of accessorizing here and there.
Pretty big impact for a small amount of money
and probably about a day’s work.
Alright, now I got doubled the budget,
I got 300 dollars already spent,
and I can spend 300 more.
Where am I gonna spend that 300?
I decided to spend it on go ahead and fix the shower head,
the little tub faucet, the thing that turns it on.
Hello, I’ve been putting a stopper, my kids, when they were in high school,
另外 我还安装了一个浴缸塞 我的小孩上了高中
they use a tub stopper. How embarrassing!
Specially when I realize how easy and quick and inexpensive it is to replace that thing.
And my second decision was clean-up and add some linoleum squares
so that the inside of the cabinet looks as good as the outsides.
I decided to actually replace the cabinet doors.
Remember the last ones, very topical, big bang for your buck, but not quality.
记得之前的吗 非常火 花大价钱买到的 就是质量不行
So I up to the quality of the cabinet doors and the drawer’s faces.
And now let the magic begin.
This is where when you got that extra 600 dollars to add to the first 600,
you could take this thing up on and up over the finish line.
What’s the problem? What’s the problem?
I was using the restroom.
I will go toilet paper.
So, right here.
600 more dollars and there was a lot playroom.
Let’s start it by adding an additional shower curtain to the one I had before.
Why did I do that?
because now I can keep this close if I want to,and it goes in and out
Where there is a single shower curtain,
it was just one flat curtain all the way across.
This gives it a much more luxurious feel.
In addition, It’s also perfect
we open it to see our new faucet and stuff we did in phase 2.
We now have towel bars, we have a robe hook. That’s awesome.
还有毛巾架 浴袍钩 棒极了
This is such a cool hook. Look, it comes in three hooks.
这是个非常酷的挂钩 瞧 它有三个钩子
I have a toilet paper holder and a hand towel holder, and I have…
That’s it. That’s all I have.
Then I was able to add accessories to the bathroom.
Then what about these beautiful brushed brass knob
that was able to put on the new cabinet doors.
It added so much of a finishing touch that I love.
Now I think that the cultured marble is not so bad.
Actually I kind like it.
I think I made it work by tying it in together with pieces of art accessories.
Of course we have soap pump in the black.
So I was super excited to actually add all the black touches.
Wasn’t my initial plan.
But once I started shopping, I felt in love with it.
And leave me a comment blow and let me know, does it work for you?
‘Cause it sure works for me.
With this does, this also ties in the colour as the cultured marble.
And it’s kind of an odd thing like, look, this is a brushed nickel.
可能这样搭配有点奇怪 瞧 这是砂镍色的
So is it okay?
People ask me all the time is it okay to make and match your finishes.
What do you think?
Okay, I’m sorry. But I’m a little proud of myself.
好吧 抱歉 我有一点骄傲了
I would not normally have thought I could actually do
that much in the bathroom for only 1200 dollars.
I’m a little embarrassed now
but it took me so many years to get to it.
It should not take you 18,15,12,10 any years actually
实际上它不应该花费你们18 15 12 10这么多年的时间
You should do it the next weekend.
Because now that you know what to do,
you can get started and make a difference.
And then send me photos because I want to see how it turned out.
Remember join the Design Sessions

Because I’m telling you what, it would be a game-changer.

Alright, you guys I will see you next time. Here on YouTube.
好了 朋友们 下次在YouTube见
But of course I’ll see many many many of you on the Design Sessions.
Love you guys, Bye-bye.
So here’s the deal that 300 dollars challenge
I had to choose between do i want to like fix the drain
and all those different finishes and towel in the shubb
If I could afford to and I don’t think it cost that much at the time.
I would replace my countertop with something like silestone
which is organic, kind of material or fake, actually.
I’m sorry, that’s actually like…
Fake and organic on the same time.
