Messy Master Bedroom

The previous owners extended the master bedroom from the garage, but the construction was unpermitted, not to mention the old tile and huge mess.

New Furniture + Paint

Hosts Tarek and Christina made the new master bedroom cozy with contemporary furniture and new carpet.

Outdated Cabinets

The original cabinets have plenty of storage, but the wood is outdated and all the cabinet faces are missing.

Contemporary White Cabinets

Painting the cabinets white makes the kitchen feel more open, while new hardwood flooring adds an elegant look.

Damaged Cabinet Built-In

The built-in cabinet in the living room is run down, but the 1920s architecture is appealing.

A Fresh Coat of Paint

Removing the damaged doors and adding a fresh coat of paint makes the cabinet look more modern.

Missing Kitchen Cabinets

The kitchen cabinets were taken out of the walls, so new appliances and custom cabinetry are top priorities for this kitchen makeover.

Expansive Kitchen Island

A large kitchen island with quartz countertops distinguishes the eating nook from the kitchen and provides the perfect prep area while entertaining guests.

Outdated Popcorn Ceiling

The outdated wall color and popcorn ceiling bring a dated look to this living room, but the size of the room and flooring give it potential.

Ugly Yellow Walls

The fireplace in the living room is in good shape, but the chandelier is outdated.

Neutral, Contemporary Living Area

A neutral color palette, a contemporary light fixture, updated furniture and a smooth ceiling add a more inviting feel to the living room.

Contemporary Upgrades

A new light fixture and furniture bring a contemporary look to this open living room.

Bulky Brick Fireplace

The old brick fireplace is an eyesore, so it needs to be completely replaced.

Contemporary Fireplace Surround

A new fireplace surround painted in white instantly adds a clean, refreshing look to the living room.

Unstable Stair Railings

Replacing the bulky, unstable stair railings is first priority for this house flip.

Elegant Wrought Iron Stair Railings

The elegant wrought iron stair railings are the first thing you see when you walk in the door, giving the home instant appeal.

Dreary Wall Color

The dark color on the wall makes the eating nook feel small and uninviting.

Uninviting Living Room

The vaulted ceilings and expansive windows add plenty of natural light to this living room, but the dark wall color isn't appealing to buyers.

Monochromatic Living Area

The color on the wall blends with the hardwood flooring, giving the living room a bland, monochromatic look.

Plenty of Natural Light

A neutral color palette and a glitzy chandelier — along with natural light from the glass sliding doors — makes the eating nook the perfect spot to entertain.

Open Living Area

Waxing the hardwood flooring makes it look brand new, but without the high price tag of refinishing them. A light color palette opens the room up even more.

Inviting Living Room

Newly waxed hardwood flooring, a refreshing color palette and contemporary furniture revamp the once bland living room.

Too Many Walls

A bulky brick fireplace and a closed kitchen make the home feel crowded and dreary.

Open Floor Plan

Opening up the wall between the kitchen and living space adds more light to the entire space. The granite countertops in the kitchen match the granite on the fireplace hearth, tying the two spaces together.

Outdated Fixtures

The master bathroom is very spacious, but the carpet, cabinets and countertops are completely outdated.

Luxurious Upgrades

Elegant mirrors, a double sink vanity with granite countertop and new tile flooring bring wow factor to the master bathroom.
