Go ahead and admit it, everyone loves a good before and after story.
The idea and process of taking something old or tired and making it fresh and new is both exciting and rewarding. Before and after projects provide a sense of accomplishment when you consider how far you’ve been to how far you’ve come. In the home, transforming a room – or the entire home – can give you and your family an up to date feel. So let’s take a walk down memory lane, take a look at our three favorite before and after projects by Case Design.
Helpful hint: Always be sure to take photos of your before and after projects so you can see the full impact of your new design.
1. Front Door Refresh
The outside of your home is the first impression that people have when they come to visit. Make sure the exterior (especially the street front) reflects your style and personality. Curb appeal is important for both resale value and home presentation.
In this before and after project, the team painted the home warmer colors. The beige and burgundy tones are inviting and coordinate well with the natural foliage in the yard. The addition of the front step overhang and side rails give the home a unique personality. These cosmetic architectural additions are like a face lift for the front of the house; the small adjustments lead to impressive results.
2. Kitchen Creations
The kitchen is the heart of the home. This is the area where the family gathers multiple times a day for dining and entertainment. The kitchen should combine both comfort and function to provide your family with an open environment that fits your busy lifestyle.
This project takes an outdated space and improves both the visual appeal and functionality of the space. The construction of the center island and bar stool area provides extra seating and work space. This is a great way for family to gather while cooking an evening meal or a space for children to spread out homework or school projects. The updated hardwoods, wall color alteration, and mosaic sconces create a sophisticated atmosphere.
3. Restroom Reconstruct
The bathrooms in your home get a lot of wear and tear, especially if you entertain regularly or have a big family. These spaces need to be open, clean, and well organized.
In this before and after endeavor, the team made a big effort to emphasize the natural light available in the space and supplement it with new lighting fixtures as well. Lots of light makes the space feel bigger. The addition of the fully glass shower and consistent tiling feature throughout the room – and onto the vanity – give a previously cramped space new life and comforting consistency.
