New Family Home for $189,000 in Florida

Can you really build a fresh, chic, modern family home for under $189,000? Yes, yes you can!

We set out to do just that in High Springs, Florida and we couldn’t be happier with the result! How did we do it? Here was my plan:

  1. Use budget friendly selections throughout. Keep the main selections classic and inexpensive. Here we used chic, but inexpensive vinyl flooring, brushed nickel plumbing and $1.99 tile throughout.
  2. Then, splurge on a few key pieces. Now that you’ve saved throughout, you can jazz it up with a few splurges. The island lighting and breakfast nook lighting were a bit pricey for this home, but were such a focus, the splurge was warranted. The Master Bath also got a stand out vanity.
  3. Use a monochromatic color scheme inside. Light and bright neutrals amplify the wide open floor plan, keeping everything fresh and clean. The interior paint color mimics, but doesn’t match, the exterior color for a seamless transition.
  4. Punch it up with a bold front door. Paint is cheap so let’s use it to our advantage! A clean, warm white exterior and a fresh, bold red door make a striking exterior.

So, let’s take a look and see the end results! All the info (with links) to recreate the style is listed at the end.
