NAME: Sol
LOCATION: Milan, Italy
SIZE/TYPE: Apartment

These are the pictures of my former home. I bought it 6 years ago, and with a small budget I turned it around. Very old people used to live there and it was almost abandoned, since no renovations had been done in years. I sold the house last year.

FLOORPLAN

BEDROOM BEFORE

BEDROOM AFTER
I built a structure to make a loft like room. The bed on top, the living room on the bottom. I kept the floor, because I was on a budget, and a great wall to wall closet.

This was the studio, on the opposite side of the bed and living room. It is an ikea kitchen countertop with legs.

BATHROOM BEFORE
The bathroom was completey redone: it didn’t have a washbin, but only a small tub that served as washbin, shower and else.

BATHROOM AFTER
I changed the window, managed to fit a new toilet, bidet, washbin, shower, and even a washing machine. Tiles are mosaic from Bisazza and the fixtures are Pozzi Ginori Series 500.

FRONT ROOM BEFORE
Views from the entrance. I kept the marble floor, and everything else was wiped out. A new heating and water system was made, so I had traditional radiators instead of that old heater.

KITCHEN AFTER
The kitchen was fitted into the angle, after having enlarged the bathroom, tiny but it had everything one could need.

  2. Love the bathroom. The tile is the perfect color for a bathroom. It looks like you did a fantastic job with the space. Oh, and I love that Smeg fridge too.

  3. Kragoth, the bathroom was indeed the best feature of the apartment!! The rest was cozy and nice, but not outstanding. It was kind of dark and cold, and it was so small I couldn’t keep up with my clutter :)

  4. It looks great. Love that fridge. Even though the kitchen is small, it seems a much better use of space in the ‘after’ pictures.

    Are cabinets in a bathroom not traditional? Seems like a sink basin/cabinet combo would have helped your organization (thinking of the drawers below the wall-mounted sink).

  5. Complimenti davvero! una trasformazione incredibile…che brutti i vecchi lampadari e tutto cosi’ scuro! Bellissimo il bagno, avrei scelto altri colori per la cucina e un frigo con il surgelatore, quel modello della smeg ne ha uno piccolo interno, mentre ottima soluzione per il soggiorno.
    A saperlo ti avrei fatto una proposta di acquisto ;)
    Per curiosita’ che piano e che zona di milano?
