‘Out with the old and in with the new’ was the mantra for this flat’s overhaul. Everything was stripped down, and there were subtle structural changes, too, as the unit has to house four family members.
A greyish woodgrain finish was chosen for the flooring to match the grey undertones of the blue.

This design also allowed for the two bedroom doors to be flush with the cabinetry, creating a lovely long expanse of panelling.
