After: Functional Alcove
The huge aquarium and TV no longer crowd the alcove. Now, buyers can see this area for what it truly is — more living space. A new, wooden breakfast bar and contemporary stools give the space more function and purpose. The walls are painted the same neutral taupe as the living room to make the condo feel more spacious. New decorative mirrors also expand the space, while a floating wall shelf keeps precious floor space open.
When the Designed to Sell team first arrived on this street, they had a hard time finding the condo. The window well (not shown) was a mess, and there wasn’t a house number in sight. Now, tall plants in brightly colored pots draw attention and a large house number embedded into the concrete step clearly defines the entrance. Underneath the stairs, a lattice fence and flowering plants helps conceal the electrical panels and meters.
