Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe light colors open up the space making it more appealing.
Before, the potential was lost in this space. Now, buyers will be dazzled by this big, bright room. Neutral paint and window treatments lighten up the space and emphasize the view. New furniture, lighting and accessories add valuable charm. Custom, built-in cabinets provide extra storage and bring more attention to the fireplace. Custom cabinets and extra storage is always a positive selling feature, especially in an urban setting such as this.

In the dining room (not shown), fresh paint, new furniture and lighting bring the room back to its intended purpose. A bigger table and a new set of elegant red chairs add sophistication and fill the space perfectly. The bulky book shelves were removed from the wall and replaced with custom artwork.
