Hide CaptionShow CaptionBefore, this room felt sunken and mismatched, but now it makes a bold statement with its custom headboard and light shades of gray.
Raising the height of the furniture highlights the room's vertical space and makes it appear larger. To save money, the homeowner's furniture was painted instead of replaced to give the room a cohesive look.

In the master bathroom, the makeover was all about staging. By fixing the cracks, applying a new coat of paint and adding new lighting and accessories, this room went from dull to dazzling. Two inexpensive frames placed in front of the large wall mirror set the two sinks apart in a whimsical, yet stylish way.
