THE STREET FLIP
We gave this little house a good paint job and some fresh landscaping, but the biggest change on the exterior was the addition of the new driveway. Although expensive, it really changed the whole look and feel of the place.
After we were able to empty the home we got to work. The flooring was in bad shape, so lots of repair work was done before this beautiful laminate flooring was put in. We also widened the opening between the rooms to give it a more open feel.
A face-lift for the fireplace includes paint and shiplap, and the whole house got new baseboards, paint and light fixtures.
We defined the space of the dining room by centering a modern chandelier in the middle.
The cabinets were in pitiful shape, so while the layout is the same, we splurged on new white shaker-style cabinets and new granite countertops with white subway tile backsplash. Stainless steel appliances and a new stainless faucet make this a brand new kitchen. The black knobs tie in the other black accents in the home, such as the light fixtures and guest bathroom faucets and knobs.
The laundry was smack-dab in the middle of the kitchen. After trying to re-locate them and finding it was just not possible, we made these custom cabinets for the washer/dryer that hide them when not in use.
The bedrooms all got cleaned out, new carpet, baseboards, paint, and light fixtures.
The guest bathroom was so blocked, we couldn't even get in it to take a "before" picture. A new vanity, countertop, sink, faucet, mirror, light fixture, toilet, and towel hangers were installed. Along with new tile flooring, a new bathtub and tile surround, and new baseboards and paint.
This room is one of our smallest yet favorite transformations. We took out the storage wall so we could extend the shower. Put in a new vanity with storage underneath, countertop, sink, faucet, mirror, and light fixture. The toilet, shower pan, shower tile, and fixtures are all new too.
