Living Room Reveal

Guys!!! I’m SO excited! I have another room cleaned, lightly staged, and photographed!! Per the title of this blog, I’m sure you’re aware that I’m talking about the living room of our current flip house. 

The construction phase of this whole project is DONE, and the cleaning phase is almost done!!! Yay!! The cleaning phase of these flip projects is always such a huge undertaking. Literally every square inch has to be scrubbed, scrubbed again, vacuumed, dusted, mopped, mopped again…you get the idea. When an entire home has been a construction zone for the past four months the amount of cleaning that is required seems endless. However, getting to this part means we are SO close to being totally finished, and that is something to celebrate!!

Before I do any pictures or details of the living room I’m going to talk a little bit about this house, just in case any one reading this is interested in purchasing this home.

This 1680 sq ft ranch style home is located in Welcome and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The main floor offers a foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and bathroom, hall bathroom, and 2 extra bedrooms. There is another 700 sq feet finished in the basement that includes a second living room and office with a closet. This part of the basement isn’t heated and cooled, so therefore it’s not included in the finished sq feet of the house. However, we had it priced and you could add a second HVAC system for the basement for only 4K.  

The master suite includes his and hers closets (one of which is a walk in) and an en suite bathroom with double vanities, tile tub/shower combo, linen closet, and toilet. 

The home has a brand new front porch, and the basement living room has a set of French doors that both open to lead out onto a covered back patio. Other features include brand new HVAC system for the finished main level, 2 brand new garage doors, new exterior siding, all new double hung Pella brand vinyl windows, new landscaping and new driveway with a fresh load of gravel on it. 

I’ll be doing individual blog posts of each room/area that includes before and after pictures as well as all of the details for these spaces. 

Alrighty, back to the living room reveal 😁.

Let’s start with some before pictures…

This was definitely an ugly room. It was very dark and somewhat oppressive. The walls were all a tinged yellow color, the dark brown carpet was super dirty, there were NO lights, and the windows included some plexi-glass and housed a window a/c unit.

So what did we do to make it pretty?? We put hickory hardwoods down, painted the walls, trim and ceiling, painted the brick fireplace, replaced the shelving unit next to the fireplace with some new updated shelves, added four recessed lights in the corners of the room and a track light above the fireplace, and added 3 new windows.

And the finished result? A much more bright, clean, and open space that feels so much bigger. 

Well, what do you guys think of this space??  I’m thinking the next blog will feature the master bathroom. I’m pretty excited about that one!

Thanks for reading!
