Lately I’ve been into this show on HGTV, Flip or Flop. Have you seen it? It’s about a young couple in California who buy up nasty, run-down homes and try to flip them in 30 days for profit. I don’t know why, but I can’t tear myself away when it comes on!
The one bummer is that they are trying to market to a very conservative crowd. Their homes all end up very neutral, neutral, neutral. Brown cabinets, beige walls, tan tile. Yawn-zers.
Well, there’s a small company here in Phoenix that I think totally deserves their own show. They’re into flipping houses too, but with WAY more style. They’re called Rafterhouse, and I just think their work is amazing! (They are not paying me or anything to sing their praises here, in fact, I contacted them).
Here’s just a few of my favorite projects they’ve done recently. I’ll also be posting a few of their exterior makeovers later today!
What?! Isn’t that beautiful? And still neutral enough to appeal to buyers without an onslaught of oatmeal-colored everything.
Here’s the other end. I love the new french doors and everything about the fireplace face-lift.
Unlike Flip or Flop, it seems that Rafterhouse’s homes are in better shape, so more of their budget is able to go toward fun cosmetic changes. Not fumigating termites and leveling foundations and whatnot. C’mon HGTV, doesn’t that sound like a better show?
They’ve got a knack for spot-on staging too. I’d move in today!
All of their flips are clean and simple, but they also don’t shy away from a unique touch or two, from a salvaged wood accent wall here …
… to a reclaimed pantry door there.
Love it. Phoenix – aka land of the wheat, home of the beige — is veerrry slow to catch on to any other trends beyond southwestern and stucco, so I’m just excited to see a fresh outlook for a change.
Anyway, I pretty much think that Rafterhouse is the bee’s knees, and thought you would enjoy their work too. Stay tuned for some of their exterior makeovers later today!
