Inside the seven homes battling it out to win the title of RTE's Home of the Year tonight
As another series on Home of the Year draws to a close tonight, it's worth taking a look back at the builds that thrilled us the most throughout the past seven weeks.
Seven home-owners will battle it out to be crowned the winner of the popular interior series and judges Declan O'Donnell, Hugh Wallace and Deirdre Whelan certainly have a difficult decision ahead of them.
From renovated train stations to contemporary city builds, here is a look back at each of the finalists in the running to take home the top prize (and don't forget to have your say in our HOTY poll).
Episode One winner: The Gerrard-Coveney's Georgian apartment
This family's duplex apartment really wowed the judges during the series opener, who were impressed by couple Esther Gerrard and Ed Coveney's clever renovation of an old Georgian building.
Divided into three separate dwellings, the family lives in a duplex apartment spread over the basement and ground floor. During the renovation, the couple tried their best to respect the original space with stripped back walls, and hand-restored sash windows.
The couple designed much of the furniture in their ideal home themselves, including an amazing splated beech dining table, and a particularly special pink marble bathroom.
Episode Two winner: Alec Darragh's aluminum clad North Dublin terrace
Company director Alec Darragh's end-of-terrace home in Dublin made "a bold statement", according to architect Declan O'Donnell who loved the build's contemporary aluminium exterior.
The home, which included a clever basement workshop for bicycle enthusiast Alec, impressed the judges with its design, devoted to natural light. Floor to ceiling length picture windows were a key feature of the home, while shelves packed with books lined the inviting staircase leading to the top level.
On the top floor, simple materials and timber flooring were used well to create a modern kitchen, which is dual aspect, and overlooks both the front and back of the property from a height.
Which home deserved to win RTE's Home of the Year?
Episode Three winner: Philip and Delphine Geoghegan’s 17th Century farmhouse
The couple have lovingly restored the Wicklow home, originally built by Quakers in the 1660s, successfully bringing a glimpse of the past into modern life.
The home's kitchen, which the couple call their hub, impressed with an original inglenook fireplace and large, deep windows which allows light to pour into the modest space from dual points.
The couple celebrated the original earthy colours of the walls, and highlighted the building's timber beams and stonework.
Perhaps the most impressive elements of the home are the original bread oven in the kitchen and a stunning old forge, which the judges said were amazing pieces of history to retain.
Episode Four winner: Gitte Trench's clever downsize in Wicklow
Danish granny Gitte broke our hearts when she shared the sad story of her husband, who became ill and had to move into full-time residential care. The pensioner downsized but said she couldn't bring herself to decorate her home in a Scandinavian style after he left.
"I could never have a Scandinavian style again because my life has changed. I've changed. The whole idea of having white walls and sun pouring like when I was young and we were happy together. I could never live that way again."
The judges were deeply impressed with Gitte's stylish and welcoming abode, which they said envelops despite being so small.
Powerful art is a key feature of the Wicklow bungalow, as painting is one of Gitte's passions.
Episode Five winner: Susan Gorman and Alan Ross' renovated Wicklow train station
Husband and wife Susan Gorman and Alan Ross bought the disused station nine years ago and set about renovating the property with a determination to respect the building's original features.
The couple said the property was in bad nick at the beginning, but together they have worked to make the most of the brick arches and the original stonework, turning what was once the train's platform into a terrace.
The home's living room impressed the judges with its simple colour palate and comfort-focused feel. The station's bathroom and its beautiful Victorian roll-top bath which stands beneath a large window, allows light to flood the room and excited the judges. Around the corner.
Episode Six winner: Colin and Ruth Donnelly's contemporary Antrim home
Antrim couple Colin and Ruth Donnelly had to place their contemporary build on hold after they fell on hard times during the recession but were delighted to finish the project last year.
The modern architectural home, with its curved roof and stunning views across four counties impressed the judges, who loved its double height ceilings, and cleverly laid out open plan spaces.
A burnt orange kitchen, a colour chosen by the couple's son, complete with an island, impressed architect Declan, who said the picture windows and sliding doors blurred the lines between outside and in.
The main bathroom of the home was finished with impressive stonework, and above the bathtub is a television, which added humour to the project.
Upstairs, an impressive mezzanine connects to the master bedroom via a bridge, which overlooks the lower level of the home.
Episode Seven winner: Louise McGuane and Dominic McCarthy Clare cottage
Entrepreneur Louise McGuane and her husband Dominic McCarthy renovated an old cottage which once belonged to the Clare native's grandmother and the build's picture windows and "cathedral" ceilings really impressed the judges.
The intimate kitchen of the cottage was impressive, particularly the counters made from wood salvaged from the local parish hall and its large chalkboard wall.
The couple's open plan living and kitchen space has a large picture window, which seamlessly connects the outdoors with the home's interior, while a 'floating' fireplace is the centre piece of the voluminous room.
A staircase made from old railway sleepers leads way to the couple's comfortable bedroom at the top of the home, which sits next to a cosy bathroom flooded with natural light.
The final of Home of the Year is broadcast on RTE One next Thursday at 8.30pm and you can also catch up on the RTE Player.
