Home Makeovers and Before/Afters

Home Makeovers and Before/Afters

Before we show you some blogs featuring home makeovers we absolutely love, we want to share some news about Decorator with you!

In two months, we’ll have an app update with some major changes we think you’ll love. We wanted to share one of the new features with you today: before and after photos. You’ll be able to see how projects evolve over time and get inspired by how other users improved their homes.

Today we’re sharing some fun blog posts we’ve come across that do a great job of showing the before, the after, and the steps in between. They’re fun to look at, and great resources to learn from!

Walk-in Closet: Messy → Boutique

Closets are tricky spaces to redecorate. If you’re like us, your closet is packed and not as organized as you’d like. It’s difficult to imagine how to transform such a small space into an organized and highly-functional area.

We’re obsessed with how Kelly turned her standard walk-in closet into a beautiful room that almost feels like a clothing boutique — for only $400! Check out her post to read about every stage of the process: planning, sketching, building, painting, buying, DIY-ing, and accessorizing!

Dining Room: Drab → Fab

Sometimes it’s hard to see the potential in a room with popcorn ceilings, hideous wallpaper, and curtains from decades ago. This post does a wonderful job showing how you can preserve a room’s great architectural elements while transforming it into something modern and fresh.

Master Bathroom: 80s → Modern Vintage

It’s easy to find photos of beautiful bathrooms, but often difficult to find enough details to replicate it. Jenna Sue does a great job breaking down her amazing bathroom transformation, with everything from links to buy accessories to DIY tutorials to contracting costs.
