What room in your house most desperately needs a makeover?

Most of us dream about improving our home in some way or another. 

 

Tell us what room in your house most desperately needs a makeover and why?

Our back room - brown tiles, mission brown window trims and a combination of exposed brick and wallpaper. Need I say anymore?

My backyard was in desperate need of something special and I've just completed phase one. I did a lot of the work but obviously had some pros in to install the pool for example (digger, crane, etc)

So I ended up putting in a pool with surrounding natural stone paving, frameless glass fencing and finished the rest of the yard with fake grass. It's given me the foundation to work from.

My kitchen! It's smaller than most apartment kitchens, has no dishwasher or exhaust fan, is missing cupboard doors (no idea what happened with the previous owners?!).

 

Below is a before pic. I have since painted the exposed bricks and cabinetry, changed the handles, replaced the freestanding cooker and removed the disgusting exhaust fan.

 

I can't wait to reno this room next year...

My laundry is very small and narrow. Currently there is only a trough and my washing machine. I would like to add some cupboards for storage and a bench top.

Re: What room in your house most desperately needs a makeover?

In the Workshop poll we've been running over the past week, community members suggested they would much rather have a new kitchen than a new bathroom.

 

Over 70 percent opted for a new kitchen when asked would you rather have a new kitchen or a new bathroom. 

 

Thanks to all those community members who voted in the poll. Feel free to keep the discussion going by replying below.
