A couple of these are not improvements.
i loved the last one!
That foyer before and after still makes me cringe. The before is so warm and lovely and the after is...quite the opposite.
I love this! Painting a room truly is the easiest and cheapest ways to redecorate a space!www.CompartmentLife.com
Overture, agreed, but at least in the after it has a front door instead of just a hole. Brrrr.
Thanks, pier723! So honored that my bathroom made the list!
I am pretty sure only 3 of these are improvements in the actual sense of adding value... monetary or design-wise. I'm kind of cringing at all those stripes... and the foyer...
I prefer the before images on most of these. Perhaps AT should allow users to vote?
2 THUMBS UP
#9 - Wow, I would NEVER have painted a traditional staircase glossy dark grey like that, never... and yet it turned a boring McMansion entrance into an elegant, striking (in a good way) fashionista entrance. Very well done, very well done indeed.#10 - Oh what a difference some paint, a wall decal, and a coordinated color scheme can make! What a lovely, restful bathroom!1 THUMB UP#4 - I like the way all that absent space was used, so many people leave gigantic white blankness due to a paucity of imagination, and I think intimidation with the sheer size and scope of the blank space. I personally would find the yellow swirly pattern too loud to be restful, but I'm conservative and not actually terribly cool - I have to say, well done with the space, the vision, and the verve.#6 - I'm digging it. I kind of hated the yellow (esp with the flowers pictures), and find the blue restful and coordinated. The lampshade chandelier looked weird before, now it looks more planned and coordinated.#7 - A true budget refresh, and well done. Made the very-dated turquose tile and sink look more modern with a fresh red-and-turquoise color scheme. I'm liking it.NEUTRAL
#1 - It's striking, and I usually love turquoise, but still not loving this one. Although in the comments a few days ago someone said it was in the tropics, so might work in context.#2 - Well it certainly is a change, and I applaud the commitment and coherence. I think I personally might get motion sick though, and it's so pattern-intense I don't think it is at all welcoming or restful. Maybe if the pattern only went up to a chair rail?#8 - Not sure. Again, applaud the commitment and boldness, and it's certainly better than all white blandness. But perhaps a bit too carnival to me (yellow, fuschia, light blue, dark grey, white, red)... I would be with you if you stuck with one or two colors, and went with different related shades. Like the lighting though, updated the look well.THUMBS DOWN
#3 - Don't love either. I suppose the 2nd at least has a style, but just don't happen to care for the style, esp in such a small space.#5 - Changing one's shower curtain is not a makeover. And while the plant is nice, I guarantee they don't shower with it there, so it was brought in just for the picture.
