Entertainment Niches

May 4th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Entertainment centers, also known as media niches, were popular in the Phoenix area.  Until TVs got wider and not so deep.  The extra storage spaces all but guaranteed they would be filled up.

This unique set-up allows for a television to be placed in front of the niches.

It looks like they cut holes into the drywall to create the niches.

Bypoler?

April 21st, 2016 · 4 Comments

Culturally insensitive teenager?  Bypoler is a spelling variation of bipolar?  A Google search of bypoler shows an obscure Facebook page and Twitter page for a Bypoler clothing company.  Why take a risk at offending buyers?  Brophy Prep is a parochial high school for boys.  It’s a sloppy teenager’s bedroom, regardless.

This is one of those old houses where the washing machine is in the kitchen.  They use that space as a sloppy storage area now.  I want to tip the dining table so that all the junk will fall off.

Collections On Display

April 13th, 2016 · 4 Comments

Though not necessarily ugly, collections can be visually distracting to buyers.  They almost force buyers to stare at them and ignore the home’s features.  It then becomes the “doll house” instead of the “house with the beautiful kitchen.”

Doll collection.
