‘Bargain Mansions': Tamara Day shows off her quirky designs with backyard horse tank and three showerhead bath
The building was a one-and-a-half storey so the deck area overlooking a beautiful view was an attraction of the home
HGTV’s hit renovation show ‘Bargain Mansions' Season 4 is back with a second episode and host Tamara Day and dad Ward Schraeder are ready for another adventure-filled house renovation. The father-daughter renovators hit the road to go to a 1984 modern house with 3,600 square feet that Tamara bought for $220,000.
After the renovation of the zen garden, living and sitting space and the kitchen was complete, it was time to renovate the bedroom area along with the deck that leads to a backyard porch. The bedroom was connected to the washroom and a smaller bedroom that Tamara decided to turn into a walk-in closet.
The building was a one-and-a-half storey so the deck area overlooking a beautiful view was an attraction of the home. Tamara decorated the bedroom with beautiful floral wallpapers on one wall with green undertones. She painted the other walls in a similar shade of green. With some modern lights, a fixture in the center and a king-size bed, the bedroom was ready in no time.
The main challenge was to redo the bathroom. Tamara changed the entire layout of the washroom and removed the bathtub entirely and combined the space with the shower area, which used to be tiny. With modern appliances and three showerheads in black, it was designed to give an ultimate bathing experience.
She also made a little seating with the leftover tiles in the shower area. Tamara decided to put stone tiles on the floor of the bathroom in a lighter shade and contrasted it with dense green tiles in a darker shade for the walls. The washroom had barn doors to maintain the Japanese aesthetic she was going for. The walk-in closet was easily accessible from the bedroom and it was every home owner's dream come true.
Outside, Tamara put white curtains and seating on the deck. Ward helped in securing the wooden stairs leading to the patio space that was redone with a walnut color scheme. She created a fun space to hang out for the kids as well as adults by putting patio chairs and a horse tank in the backyard that she painted in blue.
Potential buyers were very impressed with the design of the house. Tamra spent a total of $75,000 on the renovation of the entire house and she was willing to sell the house for $615,000.
