Living Room Before / After

The long, narrow living room in this South Minneapolis bungalow was divided to create separate living and dining areas, making the space more functional. Updated furnishings, artwork and accessories appeal to more potential buyers. Mis-matched window coverings were replaced with matching scarves to frame and highlight the large  windows. A fresh coat of neutral-colored paint helped to hide dingy walls and brought out the architectural details in the woodwork. 

 

HOMEOWNER TESTIMONIAL:

 

“Debra gave us great quality at a reasonable price. She made our hum-drum, small house look modern and desirable. Everyone who came through said how great it looked, whether they were interested in buying the home or not.

Debra’s eye for style and hard work helped us to secure two offers in only 4 days on the market – even during these tough economic times. I would recommend Amazing Spaces to anyone interested in making their home outshine the rest.”

Living / Dining Room Before Makeover

Living / Dining Room Before

BEFORE: Despite the white walls, this combination living and dining room seems dark and has no flow through the space. Country-style furnishings make it feel old and outdated, and the view is blocked by curtains. Many people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their homes’ interiors so, if you feel this way too, you’re not alone – besides, there’s plenty that can be done to improve things, especially if you already have some ideas to direct how you want things to look. If you don’t, you can find plenty of inspiration on sites like Collov to get you started with making plans for your home.

AFTER: Painting the walls a rich gold tone brings much-needed warmth to the space. The dark trim was painted white to create contrast, highlighting the dark wood floors. Side-panel drapes frame the windows and the view, allowing plenty of light into the room. A lighter, neutral-colored rug helps to define the conversation area, and updated furnishings are positioned to allow traffic to flow from one space to the other.

Honestly, I am so happy with how this dining room makeover turned out. In my opinion though, I think the lighting is probably the most noticeable change. Whereas before the space looked tired and unwelcoming, the new light that has been installed has made a big change. Ultimately, this just goes to show how important choosing the best possible lighting for your home can be.

That being said, it is undeniable that there are so many amazing lighting options out there nowadays that making the right choice can seem like a daunting task. Nonetheless, if you are thinking about upgrading the lighting in your home, reaching out to an electrician can help you to determine the best possible lighting choices for your space.
