Designer Lisa LaPorta agrees with Shannon, and as always, devises a three-step plan for turning this house into a showcase.
Step 1: Ditch the clutter. Show off the condo, not the stuff in it.
Step 2: Spruce, spruce, spruce. The kitchen and master bathroom need face-lifts.
Step 3: Create drama. Use the high ceilings and wide-open floor plan to hook potential buyers.
The team only had a few days to work their magic with this house, but they pulled it off beautifully. Let's look:
Makeover Rooms Before
The kitchen needs some work. The dated light panels on the ceiling have been removed, creating an unpleasant brightness. The cabinets are too dark, and the stove is pulled out from the wall, which could lead potential buyers to believe that something needs to be repaired.
This room is being used as a guest room, office, music room and magazine storage area. The Thadanis need to pick one use and stick with it. There's also too much clutter, it's drab, and that odd wall decoration (made from those kitchen panels) does nothing for the room.
The bed in the master bedroom is a great piece, but is not being showed off properly. This room should to be a sanctuary for the homeowners instead of cold and impersonal.
This 1960s rancher has a neglected look, until cottage updates gave it a modern feel.Advertisement
