Before: Overgrown Exterior

Overgrown greenery starts to take hold of the home's exterior, covering the beautiful gray stone siding it has to offer.

Gorgeous French Country Home

Clad in gray stone with a hint of Tudor style, this renovated home exterior is lovely to look at it.

Before: Dark and Cramped Kitchen

Not only was the kitchen a tight place to maneuver around, the dark cabinets weren't doing the space any favors.

Striking Eat-In Kitchen

Talk about a "wow" factor. This stunning, renovated kitchen features hardwood flooring, beautiful white cabinets and a lovely kitchen island that serves as place to prep and eat. Black stone countertops add striking contrast to the fresh design.

Fresh, White Dining Room With Exposed Beam Ceiling

Stark white walls and a dark wood beam ceiling provide beautiful contrast in this dining room. White, slipcovered chairs surround a long, dark wood table, providing a great spot for dining with friends and family. Niche shelves feature a gold backdrop that adds an elegant touch to the design.

Before: Dreary Sunroom

A sunroom needs to feel light and airy, not dark and dreary. The dark leather furniture was replaced with lighter, more updated furnishings.

Lovely, Updated Sunroom

Four plush armchairs provide comfortable seating in the freshly updated sunroom. The vaulted ceiling is a gorgeous detail that adds great height and contrast to the space. There's even a place to work thanks to the elongated, built-in desk.

Before: Dark and Outdated Family Room

Ugly blue carpet and a floral loveseat? This family room needed a bright and airy update that the family would love and enjoy.

Refreshing Family Room

Once a dark and dated space, the family room feels light and bright thanks to the white walls and furniture. The dingy blue carpet was removed and replaced with light floors.

Bar in the Family Room

The beautiful stone wall stayed with the updated design of the family room and provided the perfect nook for a bar.

Before: Old-Fashioned Master Bedroom

Antique, but not in a good way, the master bedroom felt very outdated and needed a fresh update.

Chic Master Bedroom

Updated with chic style, the master bedroom is a cozy place to rest your head. Details such as the exposed beam ceiling and delicate chandelier add character and style to the space.
