Sell This House Extreme 3 Day Blinds- Living Room

3 Day Blinds | Sell This House: Extreme Mercer Island

The season finale of Sell This House: Extreme in Mercer Island is one of the most amazing transformations that that the 3 Day Blinds team has been involved with. Mercer Island is a gorgeous town located in the state of Washington and known for its amazing homes with beautiful views. Unfortunately for Greg and Carol, their home might have the gorgeous view but could use a lot of work. With Carol suffering from MS, she is unable to help Greg with the repairs to the home. On top of that, with the dwindling financial and physical reserves the house has become too much of a burden for this couple to bear. Carol and Greg desperately need the assitance of the Sell This House: Extreme and 3 Day Blinds team in order for them to sell their house and downsize to something more practical.

This kitchen hasn’t been updated for over 50 years, and it certainly appears that way. Not only is the style of this kitchen completely outdated but more than half the appliances don’t even work! Designer Daniel Kucan has said time and time again, the kitchen is one of the most important, if not the most important selling points of a home and the state this kitchen in has buyers thinking- this is total tear out and remodel.

If there is such thing as a perfect kitchen, this kitchen is pretty close. Builder Charlie Frattini did what he does best, ripping out seventy five percent of the kitchen. Raising the ceiling and blowing out a strange hallway that was located behind the old kitchen, completely opened up this space. A trending color palette of dark brown, white and muted blue combined with steel appliances and hardware gives this kitchen a fresh and sophisticated look.

This decor might have been attractive 50 years ago but in 2013 this screams remodel. Looking at this space all I can think of is brown, there is absolutely no life to this room, no color, texture, or interesting decor. The problem here is that nothing about this space is going to make buyers think- wow, I could really see myself living here. Instead this space has buyers running for the hills in avoidance of a stressful and expensive remodel.

Designer Daniel Kucan brought this space into the 21st century. The layout of this dining room is very vertical and draws the eyes upward making the space appear much larger. With accents of mid century modern pieces this dining room is anything but boring. Believe it or not the dining room chairs are vintage pieces that were reupholstered with 3 Day Blinds fabric in Andes Coffee Bean. In fact, if you fall in love with a 3 Day Blinds fabric you can purchase fabric by the yard and make accent pillows, or even follow suit of the expert designers and reupholster furniture.

The dull and dated theme of the kitchen and dining room is pulled into the living room as well. There are three different types of sofas in this room, three! Not to mention none of the wood furniture matches. This room is not only old and mismatched, but it is actually very dangerous. Any home buyer with kids is going to take one look at that fireplace and think, hazard. To top things off, I have to point out that this room is missing one key element…window treatments. While the sunlight peering in to the room might be nice at times can you image not having window treatments to block out the glare when watching the television?

Daniel ripped up the carpeting and ran beautiful Brazilian hardwood flooring through the house unifying the space. He painted the walls a stormy bay color that added depth to the room and bold vertical art work to draw buyers eyes upward. A new fire place and hearth make the room a cutting edge focus. 3 Day Blinds pulled through adding the finishing touch of gorgeous window treatments. The 3 Day Blinds team selected Draperies in Matrix Rivera to that complement the color palette of this scheme of this room perfectly.

Greg and Carol both love to work in the yard but they are unable to keep up with its maintenance and as a result the yard is overgrown with weeds and neglected. To make matters worse the patio is rotting and is a safety hazard.

In just 18 hours this backyard was completely transformed. A freshly manicured lawn, rockery, and a stone patio to replace the rotting deck, bring this backyard back to life. Pruned and groomed, in a few months this backyard will be transformed to a greenery paradise. This backyard is now a selling point for this home, who wouldn’t want to relax with friends and family on the patio and lawn?

3 Day Blinds was thrilled to be a part of this seasons Sell This House: Extreme on A&E. The work the entire cast and team put into all 8 homes this season was phenomenal, and truly touched the lives of many homeowners.

Replace Window Treatments

Potential buyers are attracted to homes with lots of natural sunlight. Upgrade to new window treatments that filter sunlight into the space. For rooms with high sun exposure, consider treatments that prevent glare or secure privacy.

Contrary to common belief, furniture should be freestanding away from walls. Grouping furniture this way makes the room appear larger and is actually more user friendly.
