Before & After
Bookcases & built-ins are loved by potential buyers. The goal is obviously to showcase and feature the cabinet while highlighting the possibilities. I always prefer simplicity, neutrals and a modern take.
If budget was no object, I would have painted all the brick a bright color & likely left the mantle brown wood. I painted the mantle white. The mirrors utilized for staging purposes were already in the home & were originally gold. I painted the mirrors, fireplace tools & screen a metallic silver. It shows potential buyers a more modernized, brighter version of a rather traditional fireplace.
This BEFORE photo is an old traditional bathtub/shower combo that included an older version of subway tiles that over time truly did not hold up.
This bathtub/shower was turned into a beautiful walk-in shower. Marble from floor to ceiling & includes a shower bench and built-in soap dish. It's finished off by a beautiful all-glass enclosure with a single-entry door.
Chrome fixtures throughout including a stylish, sleek safey bar.
Safety bars do not have to look like they came from a sterile hospital environment. There are many modern options to choose from.
The exterior of this home was dated with a brown roof, shutters and trim.
Paint is your easiest fix (frequently).
A new black roof, black paint on the shutters & address numbers as well as a solid cream color around the front door truly brighten and modernize the entire home.
Power-Washing the driveway and exterior is the perfect finishing touch & I encourage everyone to power-wash regularly.
A solid wood chest of drawers included in this bedroom renovation / update created a beautiful piece that was also practical while offering additional storage.
These solid wood nightstands were well-made, however, dated and needed a refresh.
Metallic silver paint truly modernizes the look and created a brighter, softer aesthetic.
Next, we will need some wall art for this tranquil bedroom.
