here's a new 3 room condominium which we have just completed recently. The whole reno works was approx $35k, a budget which we thought was pretty workable for quite a huge floor area that included quite substantial carpentry works, tiling, vinyl flooring to all the bedrooms, minor electrical works, some wet works to the yard and utility area and full painting to the entire apartment.
above: The dining was very spacious so we did a full height shoe closet to house all their shoes and this condominium's clear ceiling height was at least 3m and above! So all the carpentry went up and so did the price! We "extended" the kitchen by added a small counter and gave the missus a chance to put pattern tiles somewhere in the apartment.
The full height shoe closet came with louvred panel doors
above: pattern tiles as backsplash for the mini counter
above: lourved panel doors to ventilate the shoes
above: I really love the panel details on the doors. Looks "barnish" to me.
It was a subtle detail as we didn't want to have a "white wall".
above: For this home, we emphasized a bit more on texture, wood and panelling details.

Finding beauty in the not-so-perfect conditions. We thought this choice of wood from the home owners was pretty clever because then it never will look old because it looked "worn" and "burnt" in the first place.
above: wrinkled sheets and wood looking flooring. Life can be messy. So wabi sabi!
Wardrobe with simple door handle details. Something which has been our style for swing doors.
