Insane Before and After House Flip in Ohio

Our friends Michael and Doris from the Wright Group Real Estate are local Cleveland real estate agents, house flippers and loyal Bestlaminate customers. After seeing these photos, we HAD to share this make-over. Trust us when we say this is one insane before and after house flip.

Before –  Scary Curb Appeal 
This is the before with a new door. Notice the old windows and overgrown gutters. I think I would have ran away starting with this…

After – Is this the same house?
Amazing what windows, paint and accents can do to your curb appeal! The house looks beautiful.

Before – Not So Welcoming Entryway 
An upclose look at the old door, horrible paint job and very narrow front entry.

After – Come on in!
Wow! Bright, airy and open. White trim, cream walls and beautiful reclaimed laminate floors really creates an inviting feel.

After – View from the Door

Before – Hallway Off entry


Closed Off Kitchen:
Reigning from the 70’s, this is a classic closed off kitchen with peek-a-boo windows.

Worn and dirty old fireplace.

After – Open Floor Plan:
Knocking down the walls, refacing the fireplace and adding the flooring really changed this space! We just love the wall color.


Beautiful mantle appropriately sized for the space. Clean, modern and natural.

Before – Inside the Kitchen:
There’s really nothing nice to say about this.

New Kitchen:
Amazing! A functional kitchen with beautiful cabinets and a huge island will make this a family and entertaining hub.

Can you believe this make-over! We absolutely love sharing projects like this. The flooring throughout the home is Armstrong Architectural Remnants Seaside Dockside 12MM Laminate flooring.

  1. Love the makeover! The outside paint is beautiful! Such a lovely transformation! Why wouldn’t you want to get rid of the boxes in ‘80’s feel of this home? I love it!

  2. Amazing! The Wrights have brought life back to this house, making it a home again. Floors look great! Good paint color and design choices….

  3. A lot of the changes were less than ideal. Replacing unique parquet flooring with cheap laminate is NOT an upgrade. Neither is replacing real brick with generic stick-on stone. Looking forward to the day when the “open concept” goes out of style. Nothing says “college studio” quite like putting the kitchen and living room in the same space.

    • Thanks for your feedback Vicki! We appreciate you sharing your thoughts on this renovation.

    • Agree! Where I live, people keep buying up houses for flips. It’s sad to see them remove every bit of character and replacing it with the same cookie-cutter HGTV look. No interior walls. A 1920’s bungalow might need some updates and redecorating, but in the end, it should still boast all the character it once had. I’m for real brick, real stone, real hardwood, and please don’t take the walls down. I can’t help but think 20 years from now the “thing” will be to try and put all the walls back.

      • Thanks for your feedback, Leslie! It is very interesting to see how home remodeling trends change and evolve over time!

  4. Could you please tell me the exterior paint color of the flipped house.

  5. Hi just wondering what the exterior paint color is. It’s beautiful

  6. What is the color on the house?

  7. Looks awesome! What was the paint colors on the exterior of the house? Love them.

  8. Wow , Great floors!
    Those real estate agents/ house flippers extraordinaire Doris & Mike Wright sure got the job done nicely!
    Seriously, Best laminate always has the best selection , most current looks for us to try out. Amazing! They ship across the USA!! Just love the way the flooring brings the space together!

    Thanks for featuring our project home!
