Property Brothers: Forever Home – Season 7, Episode 9
Bright Future Ahead!: Melody and Chris
Melody and Chris moved to their current neighborhood to be close to an amazing Deaf and Hard of Hearing school program for their eldest daughter, Arianna. While they loved their new community, their house’s layout was dysfunctional, and they found themselves underutilizing their large living room.
We revamped the living room, kitchen, dining room, and family room to give Melody, Chris, and their daughters the perfect forever home for their family of four.
Before & After
More Storage, More Security
Before, Melody and Chris’ bedroom door was right next to their entryway. We relocated the bedroom’s entrance to give them more security and used the new living room wall for added storage.
A Change in Perspective
Usually, we take down walls to create more space. But since the bathroom was located so close to the dining room, it actually made sense to build an extra hallway to separate the two. With the built-in banquet seating, the family won’t notice they lost a bit of space. Instead, they’ll appreciate not having to hear the toilet flush.
Looking Past Old Problems
Melody and Chris needed more counter space and sightlines in their kitchen. So, we found a way to deliver on both by installing a wraparound peninsula and an interior window. Now they have plenty of room to cook and Arianna can read lips from a distance.
