About 51sqm Apartment Revamp

Maximizing Small Spaces: A Stylish Transformation

The 51 sqm (549 sq ft) apartment stands as a prime example of turning compact spaces into elegant, functional abodes. Upon entering, a bright, white-dominated space welcomes you, enhanced by a wood-lined niche for convenience.

A Harmonious Blend of Light and Color

Natural light floods in from the large windows, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere. The apartment skillfully balances colors with wooden elements, achieving a cozy, minimalist feel.

Innovative Design in Living Spaces

Our goal was clear: to craft a comfortable, multi-functional living room. We utilized an existing niche to integrate a discreet home office, which seamlessly transforms into a dining area. Furthermore, a sleek sideboard extends from the office to the living space, offering additional functionality.

Dining and Living: Blending Function with Aesthetics

The dining area, highlighted by a unique suspended light, sits at the heart of the apartment. Adjacent, the living area capitalizes on the view of Almada’s greenery, softening the urban backdrop.

Seamless Kitchen Dynamics

The kitchen’s open design facilitates a smooth flow between cooking and dining. A small window cleverly connects the kitchen to the living room, doubling as a side table. The white furniture and light-toned countertops throughout the kitchen amplify the sense of space.

Finally, a white pivoting panel offers privacy between the bedroom and social areas. The bedroom continues the color theme, with white dominating and wooden accents adding warmth. The grey burel upholstered headboard, a nod to Portuguese tradition, completes the serene, balanced ambience.
