​A young couple revamped this apartment with a modest budget

This old apartment was bought by a young couple who wanted to call it home. But the problem lay in the fact that the space had a rather bland and old school look, which simply did not resonate with their youthful status. The architects at Estudio Ideas took it upon their creative selves to conduct a transformation in about 3700 Euros. The result is a charming space where artistic touches and an eclectic vibe thrive! Come and have a look!

​Before: lifeless kitchen.

The kitchen was also a lifeless space that was done up with open shelves and stained tiles.

​Before: dull entryway.

The entryway of the home was a dull space with a white door and papery cream walls that looked ready for a peeling process.

​Before: empty living room.

The living room of the home also had a bland and dull pallor with very little to look forward to in design and decoration terms. Yet, the available space held the promise of so much more!

​Before: scope for more.

This space was completely unfurnished and required an expert hand to make use of the large space.

​Before: unsightly contrast.

The bedroom had an unsightly and jarring red wall coupled with green curtains which gave it all a mismatched look.

​After: sleek and modern entryway.

With the use of new age material like slim painted wooden panels in red and a stark white door, as well as laminate for the grey wooden flooring, the designers have managed to create an urban look in the entryway.

​After: striking colors in the kitchen.

The kitchen also has a striking black glossy island with a matching stove top while the grey laminate has been used artfully along the wall. The glossy red addition makes for an art installation of sorts.

​After: pops of color in the living room.

The living room has flaming red couches which match the sandy brown walls perfectly. The television too is perched on a panel of grey laminate, while the windows now enjoy strong design focus.

​After: pretty bedroom.

This neat space has been redesigned with grey laminate framing the red wall and the artwork that it holds. The platform bed offers a sharp contrast while it is placed right below the window for plenty of natural light. The simple elements of this room render much design fluidity which also captures the essence of the young couple.

​After: well-planned kitchen.

The kitchen now enjoys the use of the two facing walls, rather than a rambling counter along one wall. This makes it a cozy corner where everything is functional and tasteful.

​After: red touches.

The hint of red thanks to the cabinets and the door frame on the side makes the kitchen a very well-defined space when viewed from this angle. The look is softened by the grey wall on the side.

​After: bright bathroom.

The light-hued floor and the white fixtures contrast the red and orange elements of this space perfectly.
