Did you miss watching the all new Sell This House: Extreme episode last Saturday, April 27th? Check out a recap below with amazing before and after photos of a home that receives a much needed makeover.
Just one year ago homeowners, Danny and Angela purchased their home with big plans to fix up their humble abode in Des Moines, Washington. Over the past year the couple began renovations and started to make modern updates to their 1963 styled home. Unfortunately, plans were halted when Danny lost his job. After several months of job hunting, Danny landed a position in California. To make this move Danny and Angela were faced with a huge dilemma, they needed to sell their home for at least $250,000. The couple’s dated looking home was desperate for Designer Daniel Kucan, Builder Charlie Frattini and Host Tanya Memme’s expertise.

This remodeled entry way look phenomenal Designer Daniel Kucan wanted to make a powerful first impression so he decided to tile this massive wall with natural stones. This textured wall complements the rich earth tones that are prominent through out the house.
Sell This House Extreme Living Room- Before
Looking at this room only two things come to minds, brown and old. The wood paneling on the walls, dated brick fireplace and enormous brown couch gives the impression of 70’s inspired room gone wrong. This rooms over use of neutrals makes this space seem a lot darker and smaller than it actually is. It was time to get the Sell This House Extreme experts in here to brighten this place up and add some modern touches.

This room is great because it still keeps the earth tone feel but uses multiple rich tones other than just brown to achieve it. The fireplace echos the wall tile from the entry ways creating a unified look. 3 Day Blinds window treatments are the perfect eco-friendly complements to this rooms natural theme. Shona Topaz Draperies paired with St. Martin Oak Woven Wood Shades adds texture and brings a touch of the outdoors inside.
Sell This House Extreme Bathroom- Before
This bathroom is not only functionally old and inefficient, it’s just plain ugly. The tacky looking floor tile, powder blue walls and old wooden door to the toilet are terrible combinations.

Designer, Daniel Kucan went tile crazy in this bathroom, creating a clean and modern look. Using tiles of different sizes and colors creates texture and adds more dimension to this space. Staying consistent with the overall natural color scheme of the house, Daniel decided to polish this rooms look off with 3 Day Blinds St. Martin Oak Woven Wood Shade.
Sell This House Extreme Kitchen- Before
The biggest eyesore of this whole project is probably the kitchen. At first glace this kitchen isn’t that terrible but if you look closer you will see there is carpet on the floor. Yuck! Angela said “there’s nothing that we like about this room, it’s not livable, it’s not clean, all and all it’s disgusting”. Unfortunately, she’s right, and interested buyers are thinking the same thing.

Bye, bye carpet… hello tile! Designer Daniel Kucan, decided to continue the tile throughout the kitchen. Large, light horizontal tiles really open up this room and are a nice complement to the rich wood cabinets. Keeping the natural theme going, another 3 Day Blinds St. Martin Oak Woven Wood Shade was selected for the large window above the sink.
Sell This House Extreme Dining Room- Before
This dining room needed some major updates. This room has a beautiful mahogany table but you can’t even tell because of the dated light fixture, old window treatments on the sliding door and bay window converted to a green house.

This dining room received some major updates. Remember that bay window full of plants? Well Designer Daniel Kucan, found it to be a complete waste of space and “looking like growth of some sort from the exterior of the home,” and with builder Charlie Frattinis help they were able to convert it to a regular window. A modern light fixture, new rug and window treatments and the room looks sharp yet warm and inviting.

Danny and Angela couldn’t have been happier with the results, and were even more thrilled that Host Tanya Memme appraised their house for 260,000$, which is over their original asking price. Hopefully this means Danny and Angela can finally move their family out to California and begin their new life.
