This week seems to be flying by! How is already Wednesday? My to-do list seems to be a mile long and I find myself wishing for more hours in a day. Anyone else? Whew! Today, I’ve got a new Look for Less post for you guys! I’m constantly asked about sources from rooms I’ve shared over the years, and this one is no exception. This was actually our first One Room Challenge space and still a room I look at and love. If you missed the original reveal post, check that out here (since it was an ORC space, I also have 5 progress posts, if you’re interested in seeing its evolution)! If you’d like to achieve a similar look on a tight budget, or are interested in products seen within this space at lower price points, click through to check out the comparable items I found…
Like I always say with the “Look for Less” posts, you have to keep in mind you could get lower quality products (sometimes, but not always), but it’s reflected in the price tag and that might be worth the savings to you! It all depends on your vision, short term and long term goals for your space, as well as your budget. If it’s the aesthetic you’re looking for, these items will be perfect! My goal was to put together pairings that look AS CLOSE to our previous bathroom as possible… without compromising my initial design plan, so you get the same look, but at a lower price.
This space was TINY. It was our one and only bathroom in our previous home, but it certainly did not lack style or function. I still smile when I scroll through images of this space. I wanted it to feel textural, high-contrast, and larger than it actually was.

When you’re working with a tiny space, rather than cramming it full of impressive items or decor, focus on a few small beautiful details instead. Decreasing clutter (especially in high-functioning areas, like a bathroom) is always a good idea. The entire time we lived in our previous house, this space stayed fairly minimal.
I had to squeeze every ounce of function from this bathroom. Each square inch of space was important and needed to be functional. I really liked that the vanity had both open AND closed storage! It made the room feel larger, but also provided plenty of space to stash bath items out-of-sight.
If you’re interested, check out my tips on how to make a small bathroom look larger! This open / closed storage vanity combination is a trick I’ve been using for years.

My goal with this series is to share how you can achieve a similar look on any budget. It just takes some digging! You do have to keep quality in mind, but I hope it’s a helpful resource.
This little bath will forever remain one of my favorite room renovations! It was such a charming space and even though it had to work hard, it was really enjoyable to use. I spent many hours soaking in the tub, relaxing, and admiring that beautiful marble and brass combo!
