Every President adds their own unique flair to the White House, but some do a better job than others. For example, below is a picture of how the Oval Office looked in 2016 while Obama was in office:
Nothing special, right? President Donald Trump thought so too, which is why he decided to renovate – and the changes he made are nothing short of remarkable. Here’s what the Oval Office looks like now:
As you can see, Trump changed the wallpaper, curtains, and rug and added the flags of each military branch. The president personally chose the new wallpaper himself – clearly he has good taste.

A White House official said that Trump “wanted to bring back the luster and the glory of the White House,” and I would certainly say he succeeded. The Oval Office looks bigger and brighter and far more fit for a president now.
But Trump didn’t only make changes to the Oval Office. The HVAC system was also updated, and the offices of Trump’s top aides got new carpeting and a fresh coat of paint. Trump has also installed golden eagles throughout the White House:
One other important change: Trump reinstalled the bust of Winston Churchill that Obama had removed from the Oval Office.
Share this if you think Trump did a better job than Obama of decorating the White House!
