When the time comes for us to buy, I want to buy the ugliest house/apartment [read- least expensive] in the nicest neighborhood. I do not want to pay for ugly taste, I mean why buy a recently renovated kitchen if I hate the cabinets, counter tops and floors? I'd rather buy the house that hasn't sold because of the ugly kitchen, bathroom and carpet that no one else wanted to tackle.
Anyway, back to the point of this post...I save lots of before and after pictures because I love to see what other people have done to make a space their own. How much or little they changed and what changes can be made that make the largest impact are always educational to me.
Here is a great example of a bathroom that with a few minor changes made a huge impact
They kept the floors, painted the wood panels and switched out the sink
and look how pretty the after is
Does anyone else feel the same way I do about buying a house...or am I alone in this thinking??
