Toning Down for a Sale

See how the experts tone down an old military house to get it ready for market.

After: Chic and Contemporary

Before, this outdated kitchen would have scared buyers away, but now, it is sure to win them over. The beautiful glass backsplash and new sink set a chic, contemporary tone. The cabinets were in good shape, so they were simply given a new coat of paint to show off their architectural details. The mismatched countertops have been replaced by new butcher-block counters, and additional shelves keep the counters clear of clutter by providing more storage.
