Interesting renovation.

I'm not a fan of the style, a bit spartan for my taste.

But I love the before/after pictures! The entrance hallway, staircase, the open space, ie now round kitchen table where the old bathroom use to be, the backroom for bathroom/laundry room, the darkness of the original place to how light and bright! All well done!

I wish we could have seen the daughter's room. Is there another bathroom upstairs?

I wish we could have seen a picture of the patio too.

I agree with previous comments:

I would have made the kitchen L shape. Kitchen too tiny. Somehow, incorporate a bigger fridge. Change the regular glass door into a big window.

Then change the big glass window in front of the kitchen table. I would have made a sliding/folding type glass door, so you go out onto the patio on its right side, by the kitchen, without disturbing the kitchen table. When it's nice outside, you have a nice breeze blowing thru the inside thru the open space.

Enjoy your new home, mother and daughter!

Great conversation, lots of lovely ideas. I only wonder why the big window in the dining area can't open so in the summer you include the courtyard as part of the house, I think that is what I would have liked, also in the kitchen area.
