Real estate expert Terry Haas is on hand to provide her professional opinion. She gets a good first impression from the neighborhood and the home’s attractive ranch-style exterior. Inside, she likes the architectural details in the dining room, but the very blue walls, ugly accordion door and cheap-looking blinds overshadow all that is good. The spare bedroom is full of clutter. Haas advises to clean up the space and make it a guest room and not a storage room. Haas thinks the bathroom looks half-finished. The blue floor and wall tile looks great, but the sink and vanity are atrocious.
Designer Taniya Nayak agrees with Haas’s comments and has a $2,000 design plan that will have these homeowners in a bigger, more family-friendly house very soon.
Step 1: In the dining room, tone down the walls, replace the door and upgrade the window treatments.
Step 2: Declutter the guest room and make it an inviting sanctuary.
Step 3: Finish remodeling the bathroom by updating the sink and vanity.
Contractors John Allen and Matt Steele are the talented duo who will get the job done.
