The HGTV series “Fixer Upper” features tips on house renovation, including advice on paint colors, interior decoration, flooring, kitchen makeovers and space utility. The show’s hosts, Chip and Joanna Gaines, remodel homes based on their clients’ input. Chip specializes in real estate and construction, while Joanna uses her designing skills to improve the decor.
The third episode from season two of “Fixer Upper” saw Chip and Joanna renovate a 1960s home that was surrounded by trees. The home’s exterior was repainted with new railing installed on the balcony. Joanna suggested expansion of the kitchen into the living area to create wide open spaces.
The kitchen was also given a makeover with new cabinetry, light fixtures and leathered black granite. The dining space was divided in half, with one side turned into an office. Joanna added cedar accents into the tile flooring and designed the fireplace to match the exterior.
In episode seven from season two, the hosts found a house, which was a classic manor, based on the client’s preferences. Joanna added a new coat of paint to the exterior and installed new front doors and light fixtures. Chip and Joanna also eliminated the front bedroom to create an open floor plan.
