It’s time for another One Room Wonders room transformation, but this one is extra special… because this makeover takes place at my new beach shack!
Like so many Melbournians, I spent the better part of 2020 and 2021 craving an escape from the city, and poring over coastal real estate listings. It wasn’t until just a few months ago that all the stars aligned, and we managed to secure this basic, super cute little beach shack on the Mornington Peninsula. It definitely feels like a dream come true!
Mind you – even the beach shack of our dreams certainly needed (and still needs!) a lot of love! SO, what better way to kick things off than with a One Room Wonders makeover blitz?
The original living room was small and quite simple, and though the house generally does have a nostalgic 60’s charm about it – this particular room is a recent add-on that really lacked any sort of character. We were really keen to inject some life into this room!
We started off the Surround by Laminex Batten 300 profile which is an extra-wide wall panelling, with a deep square groove. We love the exaggerated width of these panels, and the square groove makes them feel a little more modern than a traditional V-groove panelling. We decided to install the panels horizontally, which helps to elongate the room and make the space feel bigger.
