Underground Unit Upgrade

After: Stylish Guest Room

Before, the real estate expert thought this bedroom was a kitchen, but now it's clear that it's a stylish guest room that is sure to impress. A couple of packages of curtain panels make a stylish headboard. The long stripes bring the eye up and create the illusion that the room is higher up, not at garden level. A neutral coat of paint, new track lighting and an attractive nightstand all add to the sophisticated new look.
