A Small California Bungalow
Here’s a fabulous article from Houzz about a homeowner in Long Beach, California who truly made the most of his small 1919 bungalow. Gotta hand it to those clever Californians…they do know how to make the most of what they’ve got!

I especially love the kitchen…nothing is attached to the walls so the room can be reconfigured. It also makes arranging the elements of the kitchen easier if the space is small.
Additionally, that front porch on this small bungalow is a bonus room…in California, especially, where the weather is mild all year round. But front porches are bonus extra living spaces no matter where they are.
It’s a perfect example of remodeling on a budget, too. Had he not purchased a high end refrigerator, the entire remodel came to about $2000. Repurposing items, shopping on Craigslist or at resale shops or flea markets is a smart move even if your budget is larger.
Purchasing multi-purpose furniture is also a smart move regardless of the budget or whether you’re shopping at traditional retail stores or via resale shops, etc. . The end result is a unique space celebrating your own personal style!
Doesn’t get any better than that!
I’m continually tweaking my own small space. It’s what I do for fun! Do you have a remodel-on-a-budget that you’d like to share?
I’d love your comments and encourage you to post photos, too!
