What do you do when you find a home that’s the perfect size, on a perfect street, with a large yard, but not so perfect inside? You buy it anyways, and overtime, make it beautiful. This week we’re going to show you how one of our clients did just that.
The home may have been outdated, but it was well kept and well built. Basically the layout worked for the couple and their two young daughters. The biggest issue for this young family was how dark everything was. It made the home look dreary. First thing they did was paint everything a beautiful warm white, and put a warm greige on the walls. They knew they wanted a brand new kitchen, so for a while they made do, and waited until they could get what they wanted. As the before and after pictures show, you’ll see how their home went from dark to light, and how pretty it turned out.
This is the Before…
And this is the Beautiful After…
Unlike an HGTV redo, this reno did not take a mere few weeks. This labour of love took about four years, as the homeowners wanted to do a lot of the work themselves. We were called in at the beginning and together we made a plan for the space. Little by little, the work was completed, and each phase brought the home closer to the final look. Last month we came in for a final styling day. Although there’s still window coverings and a few little touches to add, this home has emerged from the darkness. It’s a wonderful space full of light and laughter.
