Real estate expert Terry Haas is the first to stop by to share her honest opinions and selling know-how. She loves the entryway, with its welcoming red door, nice landscaping and unique koi pond. However, she quickly changes her positive outlook in the kitchen. She thinks the multicolored vinyl floor looks like a kaleidoscope, and she hates the blue countertops. Haas likes the colors in the dining room, but not together. Also, the large hutch takes up too much space and makes the room feel cramped. In the living room, color is the big issue again. She finds the green walls overpowering and says that they don’t blend well with the adjacent dining room.
Designer Taniya Nayak agrees with Haas' comments and has $2,000 to perform some colorful design intervention.
Step 1: Take the blues out of the kitchen by replacing the countertop, laying a new floor and updating the hardware.
Step 2: Declutter the dining room, and paint the walls coordinating colors.
Step 3: Paint the living room to match the dining room and then add new chair rail and window treatments.
Contractors John Allen and Matt Steele are the ready to get the job done.
