Well, you get a stunning blend of home fashion and trending, forward-thinking interest.

Let’s have a look at 20 ideas that will get your wheels turning!

It was tan and dusty blue – with an orange-brick “accent wall” – and sure, I figured, I could paint it…but it’d still look like what it was: a more or less personality-free ranch house built in 1969.

It’s not the kind of house that screams, “Emphasize my architectural details and singular flair!

It’s amazing what paint and cosmetic updates can accomplish!The Concept: Take a dull 1960s ranch house and give it a bright, retro makeover with cool, textural details.We are currently updating a downstairs bathroom, and I was looking back through old photos and found some from the renovations we had to do a few years ago on a property we owned, and wanted to share some ranch house remodeling ideas with you.(FYI, in case you’re local: I used Proficient Painters.
