A Light Modern Bungalow in The Netherlands

This is one of these homes where the outside really does not reflect the inside. The bungalow from the outside looks like a typical Dutch 1960s homes. And I’ll be honest, a bit dull.

But, the current owners have added a new extension at the back of the house and completely renovated this mid-century bungalow, making it anything but dull.

The large open plan living space is what drew me in. The light modern living space is a generous 91sq. meter (980sq. foot) with one wall made of glass overlooking the garden and fields beyond.

Only light colors are used in the living room, but by layering textures the space feels warm and cozy.

The modern extension houses the new kitchen and dining area. Wooden beams on the ceilings create character and warmth.

A large l-shaped bench instead of dining chairs bring even more comfort to this room. The bench is also put on wheel so easily moved if you want to create extra seating in the living room when you have guests over.

They have added some industrial and rustic elements to the interior. A wonderful brick wall gives the kitchen extra character. And a rustic sliding barn door leads to the utility room beyond.

A spacious hallway with a little industrial touch with the steel framed window and door.

The master bedroom connects to the garden and has an en-suite bathroom and walk-in-closet.

The use of sliding doors in this home are so clever! Not only does is look great (especially when you choose such rustic barn doors) but you also save a lot of space or it comes in handy in awkard spaces (like in this master suite)

From the garden you have views of the fields beyond.

And below you can see the house from the front. A little dull on the outside, but oh so beautiful on the inside!
