Exterior Of Home Before
The week before Christmas, we found out that the sale of our spec home had fallen through $%#@!!! It also occurred to me that I had never given a whole tour of the spec home. So here you go.
Exterior of Home Now
The kitchen before had VERY nice new cabinetry from a few years ago, but it also had mismatched appliances, a laminate countertop (in a clashing color), and Pergo floors. (I am not a big fan of Pergo......sorry). Also, super dated lighting and plumbing fixtures.
The kitchen received new paint, amazing brick pattern tile floors, stainless appliances, lighting, granite counters, cool industrial faucet, and a really pretty crackle finish subway tile backsplash. Look how much better the cabinets look with the right color countertop!
Julie also sewed the curtains. The cute green tabs were a solution to a shortage of curtain fabric.
(Not sure how I managed to do that, but the tabs fixed it).
The new flooring, and getting rid of the ugly vertical blinds made a HUGE difference in the amount of light in the room. Also notice the giant pine tree from the before that is gone in the after. It is one of MANY trees that fell in Davis County in the huge wind storm.
We put new bathtubs in, and white subway tile surrounds. Here is another look at the striped wall.
Besides the obvious new carpet and paint, we also widened the entrance to the family room at the bottom of the stairs, and put in a new iron and wood topped railing (in the left of the photo). We also got rid of the obnoxious low hanging light fixture at the bottom of the stairs.
At one end of the family room in the basement was a wide storage room. It took a lot of the light from the room, and seemed like a giant waste of space, so we tore it out. The family room is big and bright and open now.
I have written about the laundry room changes before. I love this room now!
If you live in Utah, this house is back up for sale! The real estate listing can be found here.
