I felt like it had many layout issues and instead we spent most of the show discussing niches.
2 bedrooms on the main floor at the front of house--have to go all the way to the back to use the bathroom.
A three bedroom house with only a counter and 3 stools for dining.
They used the attic to add a closet and bathroom--but then left a small part of the attic unfinished.
If these people have kids, they are not going to want to sleep upstairs and put the kid downstairs--I would have finished that space and it could be a small alcove for a crib or if no kids, a small office or tv space upstairs. Also no door to their bedroom --it is open to the stairs.
I know it would cost more but I'd have bumped out the back and moved the kids/guest bedrooms to the back of the house and pushed the living room up to the front, add a dining table area then the kitchen.
I know macrame is back --I see it all the time on design blogs, but that was not good macrame--it was kind of a mess, and I think the niches were so shallow as to be pointless--kind of an awkward spacing and depth. I'd have made them deeper so if I wanted to use them as book shelves I could.
I did not mind the green cabinets although that green is not my favorite--I'd have done one with more of a grey-ed tone. With the color they used I feel like the grey appliances didn't help, and the butcher block should have been stained a warmer color or something---or maybe a warm white countertop and backsplash.
So while each individual choice was not horrible I think if I went to look at this house there were so many disjointed things I would have trouble picturing how I'd live there. For homes I've moved to there has always been an instant feeling of "yes!" that lets me see my stuff and myself there.
Also I thought when the fake buyer tour couple was there Mina said that there was a back deck and big back yard but did they even show that in the tour?
