The homeowners of this 1930s Tudor wanted a modest renovation to improve their kitchen and open the space to the rest of the house. As the project continued to evolve, renovations continued into to the family room, guest room, bathroom, main entry, sunroom, dining room, art room and a new breakfast room. The garage is laid out at an angle to the original family room, opening up the courtyard for vehicles and providing access to a mudroom door and the side turret entrance.
This curb appeal of this home in Lorena, Texas is greatly enhanced thanks to some of Chip and Joanna's improvments -- including a freshly painted exterior, new shutters and much improved landscaping. Before the renovation, the house was drab and scarcely visible from the road due to overgrown and poorly placed trees.
This is the exterior of the Phipps' home after renovation by the Fixer Upper team. The exterior was given a fresh update, a la Joanna, with gray-green paint, new shutters in natural wood finish, a new arched door and reworked columns with corbels.
Jill and Josh Barrett were in search of "something different" in a new home. They found it in this house built in the modern style in 1959. Homes that can genuinely lay claim to the term "modern" — in the strict architectural sense — are a rare find in Waco, Texas. This one presented Joanna with an opportunity to branch into some new creative directions.
The bold contrast of the dark cabinets with white quartz countertops, white subway tile and spring-green wall paint makes for a cleaner and crisper look in the newly remodeled kitchen, as seen on HGTV's Renovation Raiders.
As seen on HGTV's Renovation Raiders, this new space features retro-fitted window trim and all-new window treatments. The fireplace is restored so that it is once again wood-burning and is upgraded with a free-hanging mantel and cleaner look.
As seen on HGTV's hit show, Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna have turned this mundane master into a magnificent masterpiece. A new coat of paint provided the base color for an elegant, neutral color palette. Windows in the corner of the room let in plenty of natural light, making that corner of the space the perfect place for a reading nook. A faux mantel in the center of the room creates a focal point and adds a smidge of rustic charm to the space, tying this design into the rest of the home.
