This room was used by the owners as a formal dining room but after reworking the floor plan throughout the main living areas, we thought it better to use this space as an office. Moldings were installed around the entire room, antiqued, and pearlized, and the walls were painted a soft grey, all adding elements of sophistication to the space.
The most obvious change in this room was the color… a neutral paint was applied to the walls, new lighting and crown moulding installed, and hardwood flooring replaced the old, dingy carpet to take this dark room into a bright space anyone could be productive in!
Pictured below are the two openings made to open this office to the rest of the house… we made a mess but the final product was well worth it!
I staged this home for sale and transformed this bare room into a space buyers could see themselves curling up in and reading a book… all while on a minimal budget.
Like I’ve mentioned before, you don’t need a lot of money to transform a space! The major budget kicker was the new hardwood floors but if you are working with a space that already has updated flooring, installing a new front door, moulding, lighting, and paint really does wonders! We also removed the screen door on the front of the house and reworked the front porch to really make the entrance of this home stand out!
Laundry rooms are usually an afterthought but this space needed to be opened up and brightened up. Two doorways were expanded to large openings, the carpet was removed and replaced with wood flooring, the wallpaper was replaced with neutral paint, and new appliances and fixtures were installed to round out this Laundry room makeover.
