Houzz Tour: An Ingenious Revamp Completely Reinvents a Small Flat
With no structural alterations, this designer transformed a dingy little studio into a light and lovely home
At first, they thought about making the bathroom bigger by borrowing space from the hallway, but this was quickly abandoned, as it would have required permits, but not presented a significant improvement.
As well as a section for outerwear and shoes, the custom-made unit provides space for a washing machine and a water heater.
The room was zoned into bedroom, office and storage areas. The white colour scheme and white custom-made furniture, which runs along two walls of the room, tie the space together.
LED strips set into the ceiling are the main light source. They use up only 35mm of ceiling height – which had to be levelled anyway, as the ceiling panels were uneven.
Before renovations, the ceiling was only about 2.6m high. The chandeliers were removed, and now a sole pendant light serves as an accent above the bedside table.
The table is intended to be a continuation of the kitchen counter and is even made of the same material, though it stands slightly lower in order to fit below the window.
The bathroom’s interior echoes the adjacent hallway, with the same black-and-white tiles on the floor and accent wall.
