Updating the home was the objective of this reform. Its owner wanted a functional and practical house, which he could rent easily, and with this premise he trusted the decorator Leticia Rodriguez de la Fuente, to whom he put a single condition: do not throw any partition, For the rest, he had a carte blanche to do the I want to. A challenge! Undoubtedly, these working conditions would favor a great capacity for innovation and daring. With this requirement, he got down to work and began by raising
A new space organization.

Although he respected the original distribution, he managed to create a second bathroom and, at least, the two rooms of the house would gain luminosity, since neither had windows. For this, an architectural license was allowed: to design the master bedroom as a suite, which communicates through a Sliding door with the bathroom and a dressing area. It is precisely from these two adjoining rooms where it receives light. In the second, he replaced one of the partitions with a glass panel that has become a source of clarity.

The ceiling of the hall was decorated with some wooden beams that not only hide the narrow and elongated shape of the plant, but also hide some strips
of LEDs that illuminate this environment. The next step was to define a neutral background That fit the decoration.

The original floor, made of vinyl tiles, was replaced by pine wood slats throughout the house, except in the kitchen and bathrooms, where they were installed hydraulic tiles They provide a decorative plus. Walls, ceilings and carpentry were painted white to multiply the luminosity. Another of the strengths of the reform was the kitchen, which was completely renovated.
Thanks to the combination of finishes in white, black and wood In this case, a dynamic and visually rich space was achieved, where the mix of styles stands out.
This same chromatic bet is repeated in the two bathrooms of the house: modern environments with black and white coverings, and details in wood or vegetable fibers to provide that touch of warmth that makes them different.
