My fiancée and I moved into our first home three years ago. Living in the Beacon Hill area was our dream and when a single, detached home came on the market that was actually in our price range, we jumped on it. The house was owned by the original owners; which we admired. Unfortunately, it had all of its original features as well!
On closing the deal, our renovation plans came into play! We were only able to put 5% down in order to allocate much of our savings towards renovating the 70`s kitchen and bathrooms. Ikea was the only store that offered the modern, upscale look at a reasonable price.
Three years later, we love our Ikea kitchen, bathroom, media storage unit and bedroom set! We went all out and couldn’t be any happier with our home.
