  • Bathroom styling


    The Block' s Kara Demmrich shows you some clever ways to makeover your bathroom on a budget with her styling tips and tricks without breaking the budget. 

    Video transcript:

    When it comes to redesigning your bathroom it's really good to think about how things are laid out.

    On the block we had forty thousand dollars to spend on our bathroom but unfortunately we didn't have that sort of money to spend at home.

    The good news is you really don't have to spend a fortune to get a great result.

    When it came time to choosing a vanity we wanted something with a bit of character but it needed to be functional and have storage space. Kyal picked this up from an old antique store and it only cost us a hundred dollars.

    Here we've gone for the bath as the hero piece so it's the first thing you see as you walk in the door.  It's not all about remodeling either.  A bit of styling can make a huge difference to how your bathroom feels.

    I picked up this chair from a garage sale for five dollars and I threw in some patterned towels to add that pop of colour.  Add in some fresh flowers and some nice soap and your bathroom is complete.
