Carmel Valley, San Diego Renovation


I recently purchased a 742 square foot one bedroom/one bath built in the late 1980's, which had a few upgrades. I had recently added a puppy into my life and knew that I wanted to keep my space feeling spacious, clean/bright and minimalist, and pet-friendly. I was on a budget and installed an IKEA kitchen and bathroom cabinet along with subway tiles in the kitchen and bathroom. The floors are handmade tiles with a wood grain finish. I keep the original footprint of the kitchen and bath. As for furniture, I purchased several side tables on wheels, which can be moved around and out of the way when my puppy and I play ball and stayed with a color scheme of black, white and gray.
