The first thing they saw was a green and pink living room with blue carpeting. The foyer had some sort of subway tile. Half of the tiles were broken or loose. Walking through the living room, they came upon the dining room. On the walls were an ugly rust-colored floral wallpaper with rust-colored shag carpeting. Hanging crookedly was an interesting looking chandelier, covered with fake cranberries. Garrett batted at it like a cat. Edward elbowed him.
The kitchen was a hot mess. There were no appliances, and the laminate countertops and cabinets were falling off the walls. Plus, the kitchen was very small for a house this size. Through another door, there was a tiny family room with a bathroom with blue carpeting and blue floral wallpaper. Who puts carpeting in a bathroom? “I seriously hope you got this place for a steal, Bella.” Garrett chuckled nervously. Edward smacked his friend’s arm, giving him a stern glare.
“I did,” Bella giggled. “I can see the potential this place has, but we’ve got a lot of work to do.”
“You can say that again,” Garrett muttered under his breath.
“Don’t mind him. He was dropped on his head as a baby,” Edward said flatly. “Now, Bella, what do you see for this space?”
“Well, the main floor is the living room,” she said, pointing behind us. “Foyer, dining room, kitchen, half-bath, and family room. I was hoping to possibly tear down the wall between the kitchen and family room and open it up.”
“Can I make a suggestion?” Edward said. He walked back to the kitchen and family room. “Remove this wall and the family room altogether. We can convert a room upstairs to be a family room. This kitchen is entirely too small for this house. From here to the sliding door, we can put cabinets with all new windows.”
“Don’t forget an island. Put the gas range in there?” Garrett said.
“That sounds perfect,” Bella breathed.
“We can also put in a small butler’s pantry between the kitchen and the dining room. Another client did that, using it as a bar-slash-storage for their serving pieces,” Edward smiled. “I don’t know what you have, furniture wise, but that could be beneficial.”
