A Bright Nordic Home with Small (but Smartly Designed) Bedrooms
In the Swedish city Gothenburg stands this apartment with lovely bright rooms and small bedrooms with smart design. The apartment complex is built in 1907 and this apartment has recently been renovated. The historic details of the apartment have been lovingly preserved and restored.
The apartment has three bedrooms, from which one is now a home office attached to the master bedroom.
But the star of this home is – in my opinion – the kitchen. The spacious and bright kitchen has beautiful cabinets in a modern but also traditional style.
The lovely bright kitchen has cabinets on both side providing plenty of storage and work space. The kitchen was built on site and has lovely light blue/gray kitchen cabinets.
The kitchen is a mixture of traditional and classic designs. A fresh marble worktop with modern appliances is combined with country-style shelves and wood paneling.
A lovely detail are the wooden floorboards which are painted in a white and light gray diamond pattern.
Instead of one or two pendant lights above the dining table, you can also choose more in different sizes and hights (and if you want to add a nice color touch, you can combine different shades as well).
A classic built-in floor-to-ceiling cabinets fits the history of the home.
Double doors lead to the home office/master bedroom.
The already bright home office is made even brighter by added a wall of mirrors. It also helps bring natural light to the master bedroom (on the left) which does not get any natural light from an outside window, but there are small windows on top of the wall to get some light into this room.
Attached to the home office is the small master bedroom with a storage bed. The cabinet doors you see in the partition wall actually provide storage which runs under the storage bed.
The entire lenght of the bed is being used for storage, with the cupboard you saw in the office and in the deep drawers at the foot of the bed.
Beautiful period features can be seen on the ceiling.
The narrow kids bedroom is next to the kitchen. The built-in bed has storage underneath and you can reach the loft via a ladder by the window. On the right you can just see a little floating desk.
The small bedrooms have smart storage solutions, but luckily there is also a large walk-in-closet in the spacious hallway.
And next to the front door is another built-in storage system, all the way to the ceiling which provides plenty of storage.
