requirements in the final design.

Whether it’s the master bath or a powder room, bathrooms offer a variety of budget-conscious updates that can make a big difference.
Laura Bordeaux, ASID, an interior designer with FX Design, Inc. in Glastonbury, says a new vanity cabinet will transform the whole room. Thanks to the abundance of today’s pre-made models, there’s a choice to fit every style and budget. Price tags range roughly from $80 to $500. “The manufacturers are churning out every possible choice for a vanity. Asian minimalist, Arts and Crafts, contemporary, traditional—they’re all there,” says Bordeaux.
When tackling a powder-room makeover, Bordeaux advises starting with a budget. With $500 and some hard work and know-how, you can update a 50-square-foot half-bath yourself. She advises allocating $200 for a vanity, $150 for floor tile (a DIY solution that can save labor costs), $50 for a nifty new faucet, and $50 for a new mirror.
“You can repaint, too,” Bordeaux says. “If you plan ahead and set aside a little money, it’s surprising sometimes how far you can stretch your budget.”

"GRANITE TILES, not slabs, were used for the countertops,
and the cabinets were purchased at Home Depot and installed by the homeowners' friends in this recently renovated kitchen in South Windsor. The project was overseen
by interior designer Laura Bordeaux of FX Design in Glastonbury.
