Updated wall colors, a modern couch with ottoman, and new lighting create a new living space. The wall dividing the living room and the hallway has been partially opened, as well as the archway between the living and dining rooms, creating a more open flow to the first floor.
Designer Jillian Harris had the closet torn out and installed a decorative headboard to turn the unorganized basement into a relaxing master suite complete with calming accent lights and a new hardwood floor, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, Too.
Hilary's design for this Love It or List It homeowner blends neutral colors with calming blue accents to create a serene gathering place for the family and guests.

This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.

This new master bathroom was located where the old second floor kitchen was previously. Double vanities, bright wall sconces, and large mirrors create plenty of space for the family. Storage was created under the vanities, and near the toilet opposite the shower. Textured gray ceramic tiles and clean white walls create a bright and modern atmosphere. A wall mounted towel warmer adds convenience and comfort.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the Jowett family's under utilized basement is transformed into a bright, open concept family room perfect for relaxing, with a separate play area, plenty of storage, pot lights, modern color scheme and Berber carpet.
