Last Saturday, April 20th was the premier of this seasons, Sell This House: Extreme and 3 Day Blinds was a huge part of this amazing renovation in Seattle, Washington.
Zane and Claire’s two bedroom, two bathroom bungalow home can hardly contain the growing family of four. With a son and daughter sharing one small bedroom, the family is more than ready to move on to bigger and better, but to do that their home needed a serious makeover. The goal of this project was to increase this homes value and asking price in just 5 days. Check out before and after photos below as I tour you through this homes massive transformation.
Pictured above is the original kitchen that Zane and Claire dreaded cooking dinner in… clutter, clutter, clutter. Before the renovations, hidden cameras were planted in the home to capture the reactions of interested buyers as they navigate through the house. After entering the kitchen, one interested buyer noted the, “counter tops are horrible, I don’t think I want to take on this much work.” Another was so repulsed by the kitchens state she said, “it’s just filth, I don’t want to touch anything.” Zane and Claire knew their home needed work but finding out just how much was a bit of a shock.
You’re probably thinking, is that the same kitchen? Amazingly, it is. Construction expert Charlie Frattini lead the team in resurfacing cabinets, revamping the floor, and adding all new counter tops. Check out that fabulous window above the sink- dressed with a 3 Day Blinds Woven Wood Shade, with black edge binding. This shade is the perfect complement to polish off this black and white themed kitchen.
The space pictured above is what Claire and Zane described as their- “living room, dining room, coat closet, and play area”. Hidden cameras caught an interested buyer asking her friend, “how do people have such ugly things”. Clearly this “living room” needed a drastic makeover. Perhaps, the place to start would be with consolidating light fixtures that were installed just a few feet apart…
It’s hard to imagine that this is even the same living room. Designer Daniel Kucan, transformed a once dark and claustrophobic space, into a bright, casual TV area. This room received new floors and soft blue Matrix Riviera curtains from 3 Day Blinds. Colorful accessories like the red pillows were made from 3 Day Blinds fabric, giving this room a bright and open feel.
When interested buyers set foot in this room, hidden cameras caught them saying “oh my gosh, I really hope this isn’t the master bed room”. Well, unfortunately it is. To make make matters worse, this room had carpet with vomit stained into it from Zane and Claire’s children. The Sell This House: Extreme team didn’t see vomit stains becoming fashionable decor anytime soon, so they got to tackling this desperate bed room.
Sell This House: Extreme Bed Room- After
At last, this room actually looks like a master bed room. Designer Daniel Kucan and host Tanya Memme, combined forces and transformed this once dark and dysfunctional space into a bright and open master bed room.
With the help of 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant Jennifer Yun, Daniel drew inspiration for this space from the custom 3 Day Blinds window treatments and fabrics.During the renovation Daniel proclaimed “these window treatments that we are getting from 3 Day Blinds are really nice, and really custom so, we are going to start with that and pull the colors out of there, and carry it through the entire space.” The soft blue on the walls was pulled from the duvet cover Tanya made and the pillows complement the spice orange of the curtains. All made out of 3 Day Blinds fabrics!
Needless to say, Claire and Zane where overwhelmed with joy when all the renovations were completed. This house is finally a marketable property that homeowners would desire. These renovations wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing cast from Sell This House: Extreme and highly experienced 3 Day Blinds Design Consultants and Installers. Don’t forget to tune in this Saturday, April 27 at 10a/9C to see how these experts tackle the next home desperate for a makeover.
