Entryway

Before the Taffs got their hands on this home, there was not much that appealed to them, but they saw tremendous potential to make it their own.

Living Room, Before

Although the Taffs were thrilled to have a roof over their head, they knew this shag carpet and tangerine paint had to go.

Living Room, After

Dated carpet was replaced with new hardwood floors in most areas of the home.

Office, Before

After having his home ravaged by a tornado, Justin Taff was able to see past this shag carpet and the potential this space held for becoming his new home office.

Office, After

As Justin Taff works from home, a space for a home office was of utmost importance.

Kitchen, Before

The Taffs knew this kitchen would need updating.

Kitchen, After

The Taffs left the layout of their new kitchen the same, but everything else -- from the floors to the ceiling -- was replaced.

Dated Details

Everything about the Taffs' new home, from the shag carpet to the light fixtures, was in need of a freshening up.

Front Room, After

We like the new rustic chandelier the Taffs chose for their home's renovated front parlor.

Son's Bedroom

Finding a place where their young son could feel both safe and secure was of utmost importance to the Taff family.

Bedroom, Before

Before the Taffs got their hands on this dated and dull bedroom, there was not much that appealed to them, but they saw tremendous potential to make it their own.

Bedroom, After

New carpet, painting and overhead lighting give this once drab bedroom a warm and cozy feel, something the Taffs were definitely seeking.
