Basement apartment update on a budget.
The goal for this unit was to increase the brightness, modernize the decor and create a “wow” factor to hook potential renters and maximize the rental income potential.
Walls and trim: Chantilly Lace White by #benjaminmoore in a semi gloss finish to reflect the natural light and increase brightness. I love this clean, bright white! The upper section of the walls are a soft grey in Balboa Mist by #benjaminmoore, also semi gloss.
I added an electric wall mount fireplace to add coziness and wow factor for potential renters. At this time of year you can get them for a steal! This one was 50% off at #canadiantire
Total cost of update: $295 - CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
The room has been staged with neutral furniture to demonstrate the potential use of space and add warmth.

Before and After Kitchen! From dark and dated to modern farmhouse! I freshened up the outdated cupboards, neutralized the paint colours and brightened up the space by using semi gloss paint on the walls in light colours to reflect the light.
All this for $250!
Walls: Balboa mist semi gloss by #benjaminmoore . Cupboards: Chantilly Lace white and Deep Space Grey by #benjaminmoore
Backsplash: paintable bead board wallpaper ($19.99) painted with semi gloss Chantilly Lace
Chandelier: 50% off at #bouclair I spray painted it with hammered copper paint from #canadiantire Total cost $80.
Kitchen island sourced second hand dresser from #enviroplus In Moncton. I painted it in the same deep space grey as the cupboards and added a couple of upcycled pine boards on top.

I used the same hammered copper spray paint to update the existing hardware on the cupboards, the old flush mount light fixture and I had enough left over to do a couple lamps too.
This is a basement apartment rental unit. My goal here was to update the decor and brighten the space to increase the rental income potential with minimal investment. Mission accomplished!
