A tour of HGTV’s latest sweepstakes home airs October 3 on HGTV at 7 p.m. We’ve got a sneak peek of the before and after photos of the 2018 HGTV Urban Oasis – and the difference is stunning.
This year’s HGTV Urban Oasis is a three-bedroom, 2000 square foot historical home located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It’s valued at $700,000 and you can enter to win it (complete with all the fab furnishings) plus an extra $50,000 now through Nov. 21.
Check out the dramatic before and after photos of the 2018 HGTV Urban Oasis Home. It’s incredible what fresh paint, new finishes, texture and patterns can do for an old room.
2018 HGTV Urban Oasis curb appeal
The after photo shows how the architect and designers replaced the old, outdated stucco finish with new wood siding and also painted the house in a color theme of gray and white with red doors.
The front porch
The home’s front porch lacked curb appeal. The entrance lacked color contrast and furnishings.
Before and after entry
The entrance lacked a landing area for items like shoes, keys and bags.
Designers reworked the front entrance by painting the area in a bright, cheerful color. Wall hooks, a bench and plenty of storage for gear is part of the redesign for a functional small entry area.
HGTV Urban Oasis living room
The traditional living room included a functional fireplace.
The dramatic transformation of the living room features wallpaper, a rich teal paint and leather sofas in the same rich teal accent color. Adding a second window next to the fireplace creates symmetry and adds more light.
Kitchen before and after
The original kitchen area was very large and opened to a breakfast area. But the small appliances and cabinets made the room lack functionality.
Removing walls to create an open floor plan enhances the bright, airy feeling that the seafoam paint color and white-washed wood floors create.
Parlor or den area next to the kitchen
This image shows the other end of the large kitchen and the large bonus breakfast area.
Windows now wrap around the room so residents can enjoy the garden views outside and the area can now serve as a parlor or elegant TV den.
The master bedroom was an awkward space to work with.
Rerouted ducting let them take back the corner ceiling area. New windows now wrap around the room and the outdated carpet was replaced with the same white-washed wood floors as the rest of the house.
Although the original master bathroom was fairly large, it lacked light and a feeling of functional space.
The new master bedroom received a window (reflected in the mirror) to bring in natural light. Adding a partition wall isolated the toilet from the other sections of the bathroom.
Similar to the master bedroom, the guest bedroom was a challenge to work with due to the awkward ceiling area.
The architect added architectural interest to the room by creating an A-frame ceiling style. The guest bedroom design centers around a rich, emerald green color theme.
Backyard before and after photos
The back facade of the house shows the home’s original farmhouse-style architecture. There was a large deck that was not used often because it lacked an intimate feeling.
This image shows the amount of windows added to the 2018 HGTV Urban Oasis. They also built a pergola over the new and improved raised deck, with plenty of lounging and dining area for small parties.
The designers converted the small garage into a hang-out space with game tables and a built-in kitchen area so you can enjoy the grill no matter what the weather’s like.
