Simple To Stunning: Dreary Den Gets Brightened 

As soon as I hear the word, “den”, I automatically think about the room that Mike Brady would retreat to with his architecture drawings in hand. So, when looking at the photos of John & Sherry’s first home and renovation project their den stood out to me. They managed to turn a dark, masculine, dated den into a bright, inviting, family room! They painted over the dark brick and paneling with a cream colored paint and put in the same hardwood floor that can be found throughout the house to give it a seamless, open feeling. They also widened the door way from the kitchen and to the sun room to encourage that same open feeling. I’ve included the before and after photos of the den project below but you can see more about this project by checking out their blog at:

If you are looking to remodel, you need to know your options not only for design but also for financing. Start by applying for a renovation loan to see what is available to you.
