Townhouses can pose challenges due to restrictions on exterior modifications, but Amanda’s meticulous approach overcame these hurdles beautifully. She transformed the property, enhancing its appeal and functionality.
The exterior transformation began with cleaning up the gardens and driveway, creating an inviting atmosphere from the moment you arrive. Clever additions, like an outdoor sitting area and strategic styling, breathed new life into the space. Amanda’s choices, from painting the fence to adding wooden accents, turned a dated facade into a contemporary haven.
Moving inside, the kitchen underwent a remarkable metamorphosis. Opening up the space, Amanda integrated stylish elements such as colored floors, textured tiles, and warm wooden touches. The kitchen, once cramped and outdated, became a focal point, enticing potential buyers with its modernity and functionality.
Amanda’s keen eye for design extended to the living spaces and bedrooms. By incorporating subtle blues and soft greens, she added color without alienating potential buyers. The introduction of indoor plants brought freshness and vitality into the rooms, creating a welcoming ambiance. Attention to details like new blinds, well-coordinated furnishings, and clever storage solutions elevated the overall appeal.
One of the highlights of Amanda’s project was the bathrooms. Tiling from the floor to an entire wall exuded luxury without breaking the bank. Amanda’s choice of tiles, coupled with strategically placed storage and stylish accessories, made the bathrooms stand out as elegant and functional spaces.
