So Renai and John can get top dollar for their home, real estate expert Terry Haas will point out the things that buyer's won't buy. Haas is a big fan of split-level houses and likes the exposed brick and large bay window, but her compliments come to a screeching halt in the dining room, where she points out the mismatched chairs and oddly placed wall guards. In the kitchen, Haas makes note of the three different kinds of countertops, the big light fixtures and missing cabinet hardware. The master bedroom is way too purple; Haas thinks most homebuyers won't find it appealing.
Designer Taniya Nayak agrees with Haas' assessment and has a $2,000 design plan that will have these homeowners southward bound.
Step 1: Make the dining room more formal by toning down the color and replacing the mismatched furniture.
Step 2: Unify the kitchen countertops, cabinet hardware and lighting.
Step 3: In the master bedroom, neutralize the colors and coordinate the fabrics.
Contractor Simon Ley and carpenter Lynn Kegan have all the right tools and talent to get the job done.
