A renovation project can be difficult and frustrating, but it’s also incredibly rewarding especially once you see the before-and-after-photos.

Over on Instagram, an account called Before After Design curates pics of home renovations, showing their neglected pre-restoration state in one photo, and then their amazing transformation the next. Each featured property is a testament to what a bit of imagination, hard work, and a talented interior designer can do.

For instance, check out this muddy backyard. It’s hard to believe that it’s still the same yard in the second pic, as it now resembles a lounge area for a boutique hotel or restaurant.

Here’s an attic whose aesthetic quickly went from scary to stylish. 

The account can also give you ideas for your next DIY. In need of a home office? A closet could be your new WFH nook.

Have kids? Why not install a slide?

If your bathroom looks a bit dated (like, really dated), some tiles and a fresh coat of paint might do the trick.

And speaking of paint, you can never go wrong with white. The difference is like day and night.

After scrolling through many posts, you’ll start to notice a pattern. The easiest way to liven up a room is to maximize the natural light.

Of course, knocking down a wall works, too.

What’s a before-and-after collection without a decluttering photo?

You don’t have to have a big budget to spruce up a space. Sometimes, houseplants will do.

The account features other projects, too. Here’s one for those who are always on-the-go.

And finally, while it’s not really before-and-after, this tiny living room for dogs is just too adorable not to show you.
