Season 8, Episode 5

Nicole & Matt

With three kids under seven—including an adorable set of twin boys—Nicole and Matt had completely outgrown their 1,200-square-foot starter home. Plus, everything inside looked so tired: The layout was begging to be opened up, the kitchen needed every upgrade imaginable, and the sole bathroom was nowhere near a calming oasis. It took us four weeks to transform this ’50s-era house into an airy space that a new family could see themselves settling into. Keep reading for our favorite design features from this renovation!
