Jen and Mel Mihalek beloved their basic 3-tale Chicago greystone, but understood, 3 children later, that they essential to revamp the space if they were likely to retain dwelling in it with their developing spouse and children (and start out leasing out the top rated floor to tenants). With a $200,000 budget, Meg and Joe Piercy saw probable to rework some of the framework of the house and make it into a cohesive house that the full relatives could delight in.
In the most current episode of HGTV’s “Renovation Goldmine,” Meg and Joe targeted on transforming the whole property, with an emphasis on some pick out spaces. The living area was positioned ideal off of the entryway and served as 1 of the initially impressions of the dwelling, so it was critical to give the space a stylish update.
The living place started as a practical-but-simple place, with plain white partitions, dark picket trim, and dim blue curtains. The unique furnishings (which includes a grey sofa, chair, and coffee desk) belonged to a renter, so none of it could be utilized in the renovation. Given that they’d be operating with a blank canvas, Meg and Joe decided to search somewhere else for doable money-preserving household furniture restoration. They sourced materials from the relaxation of the Mihaleks’ residence and also recruited some of their close by family customers for more items.
Meg and Joe painted the walls a dim, mossy blue-gray colour and extra white curtains on gold-colored curtain rods. They also painted the trim of the space white (all around the windows and jogging alongside the floorboards), which aided the new wall shade to pop. They brought in a new light blue sofa and accent chair. They also included a white and gold coffee desk, which subtly matched the window fixtures. To enable conserve revenue, the Piercys painted Jen and Mel’s previous wood bed room dresser white and integrated it into the dwelling home.
“While we wished to make your property beautiful, we also really needed your ladies to sense like they could really dwell in this article, and so each individual layout decision we built was with them in mind,” Meg defined to the few. She cited the darkish paint selection and indoor-out of doors sofa fabric, both of which would be friendly to kids’ “sticky fingers.”
In the upcoming area, Meg and Joe gave the property a full remodel by making a new kitchen from scratch. Rather than working with the out-of-date kitchen area in the again of the house (which they wound up scrapping and turning into a master bedroom and personal bathroom), the pair pushed back one particular of the bedrooms and established an totally new, greater house for a fresh new and up to date kitchen that could suit the total household.
The Piercys mounted clean appliances (which includes a fridge and dishwasher), white cupboards (upper and lessen), and modern-day light fixtures in the new kitchen. They also extra an island with superior seating and a stone countertop for everyday mealtimes. The finishing touch was the vivid yellow customized selection that they were being ready to finances for, thanks to some of the furnishings refurbishment finished throughout the renovation.
