Living Room Renovation – Before & After

Hi frens!

Long time no see on the blog. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I’m doing a little before & after series on our flat renovation. Since I’m just now going through all the photos that I’ve taken in the past year I thought it would be a good idea to post them here so they’re all in one place and don’t disappear.

So – here is what our living room looked like vs what it looks like now πŸ™‚ It’s a whole lot more lighter & brighter than what it used to be like. The main things that we changed were:

  • removed the dark striped wallpaper
  • re- plastered and re-paint all the walls
  • put in new windows (the old ones were broken and very drafty)
  • changed radiators to bigger ones + had new gas pipes fitted
  • got the carpet removed & the original hardwood floors underneath sanded and varnished
  • had the fireplace opened up and the marble mantle fixed

The one big thing that is still missing is a bookshelf or some kind of storage solution along the wall that is opposite the window. But because we’re not 100% sure of what to put there we’re waiting until inspiration strikes. I’m thinking a big floor to ceiling bookcase but we will see.

Hope you enjoy the photos πŸ™‚
