Before: Dated and Dull This 60's paneled fireplace is in need of updating along with eliminating the iron railings allowing for a more functional space. A fresh coat of paint, new stain on the hardwood floor, and recessed lighting can turn this room around.
After: Contemporary and Comfortable The white Gypsum Tile Fireplace is the focus of the Dining Room and a new wall is constructed giving a more relaxed intimate feeling in this large space. Paint and recessed lighting along with artwork pulls this space together.
Lots of color, good use of space, and clean lines makes for a beautiful and functional kitchen.
