Anyway, the move will happen and it will work out just fine! For everyone!
This is the apartment we bought.
Built in 2008. The pictures from the prospects from the real estate agent, so the quality will not be good. Sorry about that.
With three bedrooms ("sovrum" in Swedish). The kitchen island ("köksö") is a no keep! Well, actually, almost everything is a no keep for this picky lady! ;)
The kitchen is goner! Don't like it, at all! And the door to the left is going to be change into a more beautiful one. And behind it we'll have a pantry. Todays owner uses it as a office/storage room, but we'll change that. And the parquet floors will be changed as well.
You really have to look passed the interiors of the previous owners when house hunting! I kind of have a problem with that, and maybe that is why this buy has taken so long!
Here are some inspiration pictures I've used to plan our renovations of the apartment. The kitchen cabinets will be light grey. The tile white. And the tap in brass. All pictures below are borrowed from Pinterest.
The bench will be in Carrara marble, just like this!
We'll have a few cupboards over the bench, but keep it mostly open like in this picture. With the pantry we won't need a lot of cupboard space.
Love these taps! Brass is so beautiful!
And the Carrara marble, just exquisite!
Can't wait to see the kitchen when done!
I'm not sure of what wood/colour to choose for the parquet yet. I'm thinking light grey or white.
So I have to think about them for a while. All I know is that it won't be oak, like we have today (not by my choice). I get that it's practical and suits most people, but I just find them boring.
All the walls will be white (they aren't today) and the bathrooms doesn't need much attention (thankfully), we'll just change the bathtub and that's it I think. So there you have it! I think it's going to be great, don't you!
But for now I'm going back to my Kindle! No writing yet today! ;)
