Real estate expert Shirley Mattam-Male stops by to provide a detailed analysis on the home's selling potential. The first thing she notices is that the landscaping needs to be tidied up and weeded out. Mattam-Male finds the red wall color in the breakfast area way too bold. She's also confused by the room's purpose –– there is no kitchen table, just an odd mix of interesting items. Upon descending to the basement, she is overwhelmed by clutter. Again, with so much going on in the space, it is hard to determine what purpose the room serves. Back upstairs, she comments that the spare bedroom reminds her of her dentist's office because it is so stark and white.
Designer Taniya Nayak agrees with Mattam-Male's assessment and has a $2,000 budget to turn these issues into moneymaking possibilities.
Step 1: Create an eat-in breakfast area, and tone down the personality a notch.
Step 2: In the basement, give the room one purpose and make it a huge selling point.
Step 3: Turn the extra room into a warm and cozy bedroom.
Contractors John Allen and Matt Steele are the men with the tools and knowledge to make all these changes happen, and they are ready to get started.
