All About

Before, the kitchen’s dumping ground would have scared off potential buyers. Now, having a wall opening into the dining room makes the kitchen seem bigger and brighter. New countertops, storage and a breakfast bar make it a practical space. Contrasting wall color in the kitchen and dining room add drama and new accessories give it style.

Cost breakdown:
breakfast bar and storage $687
platform bed and bedding $314
art and accessories $260
paint and building supplies $381
bathroom shelves and vanity $175
window treatments $88
light fixtures $87

Total $1,992
