Before and After: West Coast-Style Home Makeovers You'll Love
Before: Too Small to Entertain
These homeowners longed for a classy space where they could host dinner parties, but a tiny table and cramped kitchen just weren't cutting it.
After: Elegant and Spacious
Love It or List It, Too co-host and interior designer Jillian Harris reworked the kitchen layout to create two stations in an open layout. A grander dining table for six sets the stage for lovely dinner parties to come.
Before: Packed Garage With Leaky Roof
Yikes! This abominable before was in serious need of organization, and an unfortunate leak left wet clutter strewn about the space.
After: Peaceful Office Space
Since the homeowners were only using the garage to hold piles of clutter and paperwork, Jillian created a peaceful home office where they can keep things organized.
Before: Dated, Dark Bedroom
Improving this dated disaster wouldn't require much, but Jillian has big plans for this dark space, where even the wallpaper is trying to make a break for it.
After: Serene Blue Bedroom
By adding tall window treatments, Jillian was able to make the room feel much larger. A light, relaxing color palette creates a calming effect, while stylish new furniture ties the look together.
Before: Clutter to the Ceiling
This cluttered garage lacked organization and was essentially wasted space in a home where space was at a premium.
After: Finally a Family Room
Jillian opted to completely transform the garage into a more functional family room. Neutral walls and custom-built furniture look tranquil and inviting in this totally reworked space.
Before: Basic and Overflowing
Toys, toys and more toys turned this already bland living room into a makeshift playroom. Jillian hoped to remove the toys and add some personality.
After: Smart Storage in a Stylish Space
A storage ottoman keeps the toys out of the way when not in use and doubles as a comfy spot to put your feet up in the newly redesigned living room.
Before: Unorganized and Out of Control
Before Jillian got her hands on it, this laundry room was a major mess in need of a cleaning overhaul.
After: Everything in Its Place
Once Jillian worked her magic, this space was brought back to its original purpose: a laundry room. Brand new cabinets provide excellent storage, so piles of clutter are a thing of the past.
Before: Outdated Space and Color Scheme
For this dated kitchen, the homeowners needed a refreshed look with a smarter layout that would make it easier to keep an eye on their young daughters.
After: Open and Practical
This open floor plan makes it easier to see everything that's going on in the home, and a sleek palette of blended neutrals creates a timeless look.
Before: Bad Lighting and Layout
In this painfully-dark before, bench seating and an awkward brick fireplace made it difficult to gather around the table.
After: Bright and Reborn
After the makeover, this space looks like an entirely different room. Jillian was able to keep the fireplace by moving the kitchen cabinets. She even created enough space to add a kitchen island.
Before: Underutilized Storage Closet
The homeowners simply weren't making the most of the storage space this closet provided.
After: Makeshift Mudroom
In order to keep all the kids' sports gear organized and at the ready, Jillian installed custom-built lockers for easy, kid-friendly storage.
Before: Outdated Cabinets
Green countertops and cabinets that were over 30 years old were major eyesores in this outdated kitchen.
After: Cool and Contemporary
A neutral color palette brightens the kitchen, while new cabinets and a stunning tulip table bring the space into the 21st century.
Before: Boring Fireplace
This house had obvious potential, but the homeowners had a hard time seeing past the boring, cramped before.
After: Full of Personality
A bright white fireplace instantly brightens the look of this once-dated home, while unique art and accent pieces add personal flair.
Before: Good Bones, Old Cabinets
This kitchen already had new appliances, but the dated cabinets left something to be desired.
After: Cheerful White Kitchen
Jillian kept the appliances but surrounded them with new white cabinets to instantly brighten up the space.
Before: Dated '60s Cooking Space
Though the homeowners were once in love with this unique kitchen built in the 1960s, they both agreed it was long overdue for an update.
After: New Lease on Life
Caesarstone countertops, a more modern kitchen island and a delicate wall color give this kitchen just the right amount of modern-meets-classic style.
