This charming traditional Dutch house undergoes a delightful transformation into a cozy and functional space. Previously divided by continuous walls and limited openings, it now opens up beautifully, connecting the interior spaces and incorporating integrated storage solutions in strategic locations. The kitchen becomes the heart of the home with a peninsula seamlessly connecting it to an open storage band, offering easy access from the hallway and living room. With a new opening in the kitchen and a widened door connecting to the garden, an abundance of natural light floods every corner.
The central element of this ingenious organization is the central band that runs through the house and culminates in an elegant peninsula in the kitchen. However, it is not the only storage resource that has been taken into account in this reform.
The wide L-shaped sofa ends with an ingenious piece of wood, which not only adds an aesthetic touch, but also serves as a practical storage space. In this way, every available centimeter is used to store objects and maintain order in the house.
The combination of smart storage solutions and aesthetic design has turned this house into a cozy, modern, and highly functional living space that meets the needs of its occupants perfectly.
Throughout the renovation process, the beautiful pine wood floors were carefully preserved and given a fresh coat of varnish, enhancing their natural beauty and adding a touch of warmth to the entire home. The decision to maintain these original floors was not only a nod to the house’s history but also a practical choice that complemented the overall design.
The juxtaposition of the renovated ground floor with the untouched first floor creates a captivating contrast between the old and the new, seamlessly blending tradition with contemporary design elements. This thoughtful integration ensures that the entire house maintains a sense of coherence and balance.
