Berlin ‘Wedding’-Area Apartment Renovation – Electrical, walls, flooring, and bathroom
A young couple had recently purchased a new apartment in Wedding that needed a complete renovation. Starting with a completely new electrical system, removing all wallpaper, and plastering the walls flat. Besides the foundation work, our recommendation was to use the floor as an accent to the apartment, opening up the space while warming it up as flooring can completely transform the space.
Installation of Herringbone floors
While discussing different floor solutions with the client, we were debating the use of longboard flooring or herringbone flooring. The choice of herringbone floors greatly enhanced the aesthetic appeal of this apartment. The distinctive V-shaped pattern of the herringbone design added visual interest and texture to the floor, creating a sense of depth and sophistication. This classic flooring style has been popular for centuries and is still highly sought after today for its timeless elegance. The angled planks also help to make smaller spaces appear larger by drawing the eye outward, creating an illusion of spaciousness. Overall, herringbone floors are a stylish and practical choice for those looking to elevate the appearance of their apartment.
By changing the layout and completely redesigning the bathroom we were able to greatly improve the functionality and aesthetic appeal of this Wedding area apartment while also adding significant value to the property. Converting the tub to a walk-in shower, replacing an old, inefficient toilet with a wall-hung modern. By carefully considering the layout and storage options we were able to maximize space and make the bathroom more user-friendly. Adding stylish and durable materials, such as pastel-colored and patterned clay tiles improved the look of the space and also increased its overall value. A successful bathroom renovation can provide a fresh, updated look to the apartment, making it more attractive to potential renters or buyers and ultimately increasing its market value.
The transformation of this apartment shows how a rather simple-looking apartment can be completely transformed with a properly designed, and well-executed apartment renovation.
