The living room looks larger and brighter, thanks to new appliances, lamps and other accessories, furniture, greenery and paint. The extra natural light was created by an illusion — the windows are set a little lower than usual, so LaPorta placed new vertical window treatments higher to make them appear larger.
The kitchen boasts double the space now. It has been rearranged to create a dining area and freshened up with new paint on the walls and cabinets. A couple of new space-saving appliances as well as the addition of an island in the middle of the room created much-needed storage and counter space.
And what about the exterior? Those concrete stairs have been sanded and painted, some of the landscaping cleared away, and the rickety old porch sports a face-lift. The rebar was removed, and a new front door, accessories and hardware provide a whole new look.
