Christine Ave. Apartment

This is certainly not your typical dark & dingy basement apartment. We removed some walls & installed large windows, this makes the space feel roomy and fresh.   The apple green backsplash tile sets the tone and is paired with a fun, teal laminate countertop.  This inexpensive countertop option means you can go with something fun and not feel the financial pinch if you decide to change it out in a few years.  The walls were all painted a neutral soft grey to keep the look clean.

We built a custom island, clad with reclaimed barnboard which adds interest and texture.

Creative tilework in the shower surround makes the space interesting without breaking the bank.  Save money by choosing a less expensive tile for most of the square footage, then accent with a fancier tile.
