A New Perspective

In Property Brothers: Forever Home, Jonathan and Drew change their focus just a bit. Rather than helping clients on a real-estate hunt to purchase their ideal home, or to flip their current home for a profit, the strategy here deals with families who want to stay put in their current home, but put a personal stamp on it that will enhances and customize the home and give it distinctive appeal. The Brothers help envision the true potential in ordinary homes, then set about making that full potential a reality. As the twins say in the show's opening, "A house is four walls. A home is where memories are made."

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

Troy and Susan bought this spacious home in the Vegas suburbs after they found out they were having their third child. In many ways, the luxurious and contemporary home, with its large backyard snf pool, fits the bill for the family's needs. But there are some things about the home's layout and design that just aren't working.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

Troy and Susan love the location and basic attributes of their home but want to make improvements that will give it style and personality. They're looking for improvements that will help them make their home a showplace and neighborhood hub that will serve as a gathering place to be enjoyed  family, friends and neighbors. They enlist the help of Drew and Jonathan whose mission is to help the family stay in – and make the most of – the home that they love. Troy and Susan's renovation budget was $90,000.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

Living Room, Before. The owners are generally happy with the home's exterior, as well as the community where the home is located. It's the interior spaces that currently aren't working for them. This sunken living room, with wall-to-wall carpet and dated furnishings is liveable but drab and lacking in visual definition.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

After. After a renovation that took five weeks to complete, interior spaces throughout the home have been visually transformed. The main floor layout has been modified for better functionality and individual rooms have been upgraded with a sharp and visually coordinated motif. The main living room has a cool and contemporary vibe with dark flooring balanced with neutral furnishings and blue accents. New highlights include a large sectional sofa, wall-mounted TV, gallery wall and floating shelves.

Before. Railings, pony walls, child gates and pet barriers were a theme throughout the home, including in the living area adjacent to the kitchen. The railing, step and columns here form obstacles, trip hazards and functionally divide the sunken living room from the dining area and kitchen.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

After. The sunken living room has been raised, and the step and railing removed, creating a single-level space that unifies the kitchen, dining room and living area.

Living Room, Detail. Jonathan worked with design-team member Dani Bald to create a look for the living room that's relaxed, cool and grounded.

Living Room, Detail. The color palette for the living room includes blues and greens that play off of the dark, rich tones of the hardwood flooring and natural wood furnishings.

Before. This guest bedroom was serving double duty as a kids' play area, but in its current state was less than optimal for either a guest room or play space.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

After. Drew and Jonathan kept the kid theme going in the extra bedroom so that it can continue functioning as a play space, but added a number of new features including a trundle bed, making the room suitable for guest accommodation as well as kid sleepovers.

After. The laundry mudroom, adjacent to the kitchen and guest room, is expanded and enhanced with added storage, shelving and tile wall with utility hooks.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

Before. Troy and Susan want a kitchen that serves as a family focal point where they can hang out with their kids, and functionality is critical. Prior the renovation, the double islands drove the homeowners crazy. They impede the kitchen's functional flow and divide the space in a way that's logistically awkward.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

After. The newly renovated kitchen is bright, open and greatly enhanced in terms of flow and functiionality. The awkward double island has been replaced by a single island with a curved front and white maintenance-free porcelain countertops and a black under-mounted sink with gloss black fixtures. The new dining counter is lit from above by a trio of matching pendant lights.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

Before. Troy and Susan's old kitchen had dated cabinetry, nondescript tile flooring and the same nondescript tile for the countertops. The line of vision into the adjacent living space was obscured by the split level, intrusive double-island and hanging cookware.

Troy and Susan: Suburban Dreams

After. The renovated kitchen has new dark simulated-wood vinyl flooring that flows into the dining area and newly raised living room, creating a consistent and unified look througout, and a rich, warm tone that's offset by the new white walls and cabintery. The once-separate and sunken living area now feels connected to the home's core spaces.

Kid Stuff. A dead space behind a kitchen wall is creatively reimagined as a diminutive play area for the kids.

Teeny-Tiny Interiors. In this renovation, even the smallest of spaces gets the trademark Scott Brothers style and attention-to-detail.
