'with a little tlc this home....' vs 'needs updating'

10 years ago

I have learned that "chef's kitchen" means there is an island. That is helpful info. It gives you some idea about the kitchen.

What is the difference between "needs updating" and "with a little TLC".

Is it a matter of degree, with one expression indicating a worse condition?

Does TLC mean systems are broken, and updating mean the cabinets are are out of style? Pink or green tiled bathroom?

Which would decode to "copper plumbing corroded and due to be replaced with pvc"?

Which would decode to "needs 200 AMP panel and rewiring"?
