There have been some really qualified "entries" for the ugly bathroom makeover.  I'm not going to lie...  some of you are in desperate need of direction & a plan on how to jazz up your bathrooms.  Most of the bathrooms I received pictures for, have good bones and are similar in layout of many homes, but they need to be taken to the next level to be practical and pretty! Lowe's and I are going through the pictures and next Monday will be the day when you'll get to see what reader submitted bathroom we chose, along with a Creative Vision Board + 'plan of action' for the space.  In the … [Read more...]

Taking over & Transforming the ‘Ugly Bathroom’

April 30, 2014

Let's talk bathrooms... They're one of those spaces in the home that often gets neglected, yet should get the most attention.  Whether just moving into a home that has a bathroom in dire need of a makeover or a bathroom that's gone too long without a refresh, revamping a bathroom doesn't have to be overwhelming or expensive. Let's face it, who doesn't duck away from it all for a few minutes of peace and quiet in the bathroom (especially when you have kids).  And who doesn't relish in a long, hot shower after rolling out of bed to actually feel fully awake.  No moments of any day should … [Read more...]

Between baseball, a birthday party, and celebrating Mother's Day (shout out to all the moms out there - hope you had a great day), there was very little time to actually get anything major accomplished on the DIY homefront this weekend.  BUT, somehow with 5 minutes here and 10 minutes there, I was able to squeeze in a few trips to Lowe's (for supplies) and a few moments to hang wallpaper.  And thankfully with those spare moments, I actually got alot done and I feel like I'm making progress - even though it's slow. Since announcing the plans for the powder room and sharing details on the … [Read more...]

Standard-Size-Bathroom-Design

Most of us don't live in huge, lavish homes with bathrooms the size of our bedrooms. A typical sized bathroom is 5x8 feet, but many are even smaller. Some think, "what can I do with this small space?" or "how do I make a statement, yet still have the bathroom be functional"? No matter the size or budget,  a bathroom has an exorbitant amount of potential to create a dynamic, intriguing, and interesting environment.  Even though a bathroom may be of a typical size (or smaller), you can still gather inspiration from larger bathroom spaces and introduce those same elements in a smaller … [Read more...]

Master-Bathroom-Makeover

If you follow SAS Interiors on Facebook and Twitter (if you don't, please do), you may have saw a few postings that I wrote mentioning that I finally decided to give my master bathroom a makeover.  And when I say finally, I mean FINALLY!  This is the only room in the entire house that hasn't been touched since we moved in and it's horrendous...  Until NOW. Over the weekend, we (meaning the mister and I) finally took the plunge and gave this much-needed space a revamp.  I really wish that I could say in two days we finished the entire space, but that would be a big-white-lie. Bummer!  I went … [Read more...]

Blah to Beautiful: Bathroom Makeover on a Budget

Sherwin Williams Paint Visualizer

I feel like I've been talking (and thinking) about this bathroom for decades, but in reality, it's really only been a few weeks.  Somehow it took longer to execute than anticipated but I can thankfully say....IT'S DONE! All things considered, this was (simply) a minor bathroom makeover.  Even though I dreamed of new white tile, a dark wood cabinet, and a fresh new sink, I'm very happy with the updates and the outcome.  My "overhaul dream" bathroom will come someday in the future! SO here it is ~ (sorry for the narrow picture, it's a bit difficult to take photos in such a small space) And … [Read more...]
