@L. Streeter- Aren't you being a just a tad bit ****? Lighten' up dude. It's decorating your home, not achieving world peace. And that's just it- everyone's home is a personal space, designed to reflect the occupants. Get off your soap box high horse, dude. You sound like a pompous ****. Let's see your house since obviously you are so "above" everyone else. Get a grip.

Oh, great, another opportunity for America’s illiterati to demonstrate the failure of the American education system. All of these childish, critical and jealous comments about these very clever, innovative and creative make-overs only serve to demonstrate that the commenters have no creativity, no talent, and no sense of good design.


You bloody Americans live your mundane little lives cloistered in your tacky little cookie-cutter tract-houses. You never travel farther than the nearest mall, your greatest adventure is having dinner at Pizza Hut rather than McDonalds, and the extent of your cultural involvement is reading the Sunday comics.


You spend hour upon hour sitting in the dark glued to your computer screens—your only exposure to the real world—making anonymous, belittling and petty comments about those who are actually accomplished and creative, intelligent and talented.


None of you tedious Americans have ever had an original thought, you are always opposed to anything new, always resisting any possibility of change, always naysaying, and always badmouthing and belittling everyone and everything that is different or innovative.


If it had been left up to you witless, brain-dead Americans, we’d still be living in caves and hunting with sticks. You insular Americans are the quintessence of everything that is wrong with America!

Why are the before pictures mostly in black and white, and  the after pictures are in color?

Also, why aren't both pictures taken from the same spot or angle ?

I don't think some of these are even the same house/kitchen/patio in the before and after.

I am in the process of constructing my home, I want it be very spacious and not cramy. Although I am excited I know that it will be very cosly as homes in New York  and  California Real Estate.


Would you prefer constructing a home from scratch or just purchsing a house that was already constructed?

txb123 - Ya lost me there Einstein. Why does a white kitchen make me an idiot? Or do you not think that straight anymore after stumbling around in the fashionable dark-woodsiness of your dirty house?

So the kitchen makeovers were very light, almost white. Are white kitchens back? For years, fashionistas have been telling me I should make over my white kitchen. No! I love a white kitchen. It keeps me honest about cleanliness as nothing else ever would or could. A lighter colored kitchen is a better kitchen.

This is my complaint too. The before and after pictures should be taken from the same angle.  Also if the after shots are in color, the before shots must be also.  It is like comparing apples to pumpkins.

The camera angles and placement of objects is soooo different in the 'before', that the 'after' cannot truthfully be compared, and when it 'is' compared, it rarely shows much change.

A good remodel or addition should complement the original structure. Pay particular attention to roof lines, trim details and window sizes and styles.

This is BullSh*t !!! yeah they look a little nicer in the after pictures but not dramatically!! Theyre trying to feed us this crap by making the befores in Black&White and the afters in vibrant color. Shame on you!! It's just a ploy to get us to go to Home Depot and Charge up a bunch of Sh*t we can't afford. I'd expect something like this on a FOX website, not one associated with MSNBC...

Thanks for having no talent whatsoever; if you have to use washed out colors and bad camera angles in the before pictures to pretend to have improved anything by much, you really are not very good.

Placing the room in a good relationship to the house helps give the feeling that your outdoor room is "an extension of your home," Santoro says. "Make sure... you have easy access to get there," she says, whether or not it's physically connected to the house.
