This half-bathroom was renovated by the homeowners themselves. After a fresh coat of white on the walls, the ceiling was painted seafoam green. Matching accessories create a polished look from top to bottom.
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.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
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.
This newly renovated living room use to have an old non-functioning fireplace that has been replace with a large wall organizer and an electric fire screen. Updated wall colors, a modern couch with ottoman, and new lighting create a new living space. The wall dividing the living room and the hallway has been partially opened, as well as the archway between the living and dining rooms, creating a more open flow to the first floor.
