A Major Renovation Turns An Old Apartment From Crummy To Smart

This apartment is located in Sofia, Bulgaria, on the first floor of an old building. Just like the building itself, the apartment used to have an outdated interior design but only until it got a major renovation. Then it completely transformed by dontDIY. Lots of changes were made. For example, the hall was enlarged by eliminating the utilities room and the kitchen became a dressing room.

The main goal of the project was to bring more natural light into the apartment and to give the apartment a contemporary look. The living area and the sleeping zone are separated by a puzzling white wall.

A multipurpose furniture unit hides the washing machine as well as lots of other things. The kitchen has been relocated and it’s now to the left of the living room. It continues into the dining room and then into the living area but the areas are delimited by different type of flooring.

The bedroom is particularly interesting because, although it’s small, it has an eye-catching bed which pretty much steals all the attention.

The dining area has a fireplace and two armchairs form a cozy seating area. The ceiling in this part of the apartment has been lowered to hide the ventilation duct. The living room is simple and has an exposed brick wall which was painted white for a more modern look but still maintaining some of its industrial-rustic charm.
