令人惊叹的翻新,恢复了Prince Arthur Road的Hampstead出租公寓的魅力

穿过有代表性的汉普斯特德(Hampstead)豪宅区的公寓前门,你会发现一处既时尚又优雅的室内设计。但是当我们的一个普通客户,一位在汉普斯特德和伦敦其他黄金地段有几处房产的专业房东要求我们翻新她的一间卧室的时候,显然她的房子没有得到足够的重视。

该房产规模合适,位于汉普斯特德村的中心位置,但已被租用了多年,其内部早就需要翻新了。

我们的团队开始工作,准备为老旧的出租公寓引入21世纪的设计。

InStyle Direct翻新主管Amar Tufail解释说:“我们从头开始,和客户坐下来讨论她的优先事项,以及她想如何使用她的预算。”“在单卧室公寓,如何最大限度地利用可用空间是一个优先事项,所以提供良好的存储条件和巧妙选择家具是关键。”

“首先,我们安装了一个拥有充足存储空间和清新现代外观的新厨房。走到浴室,我们的客户希望避免像病房那样的全白外观,所以我们使用的是墙地用平滑瓷砖搭配白色石材瓷砖地板,以平衡房间里的光线。然后,我们安装了一个精美的深色橡木面大洗脸盆,它可以提供优良的存储空间,同时因为它远离地板,在视觉上给人一种空间增大的错觉。

“接下来,是主要活动空间。虽然房间规模正好,但是我们通过灰褐色、棕色、米色和灰色等柔和而精细的中性色调增强了光线和空间的感觉。”Amar继续说道。“Valentini的意大利转角沙发很酷,奶油色很精致 - 它实际上是一个沙发床,它是如此时尚,你永远也想不到 - 它可以充分利用空间,并为偶尔留宿的客人提供舒适的睡眠。时代壁炉前的Esprit有图地毯使房间变得柔和,同时营造出舒适的感觉,而圆形的餐桌为客人提供了一个很好的招待场所 - 我们用一些精美、时尚而又不占太多空间的软垫椅子营造了一种豪华感。我们选择的所有家具都是由英国和欧洲的高端供应商定制的。”

“细节是营造低调迷人外观的关键,从沙发上的错色镶边到显出罗马帘轮廓的镶边,再到餐椅内饰上的镶嵌。”

“在走廊里,再次充分营造空间感,我们采购了巧妙设计的圆形镜子,这些镜子可以作为衣帽钩的一部分 - 这些都来自与我们密切合作多年的供应商Porada。”

"Moving into the bedroom and here we wanted to create a 'luxury boutique hotel' feel. We commissioned several pieces of bespoke furniture and used dramatic, oversized bedside lamps to add to the sense of opulence. A feature wallpaper with a subtle, metallic finish enhanced the luxurious feel. On a practical level, because the bedroom was such a generous size, we were able to installed fitted wardrobes along the entire length of one wall to maximise storage - the taupe, frosted glass finish of their doors enhances the feel of light and space in the room."

Refurbishing a property is not just about creating a beautiful interior. It's also about creating a home that is practical and meets the needs of the people who live, or who might want to live there. And this chic apartment's interior both matches the elegance of the stylish period building in which it is situated, and meets the criteria of the high calibre tenants that choose to live in sought-after Hampstead.

From our client's point of view, this project has been a real success financially too. The apartment was previously achieving a rental of £375 per week but following the refurbishment, it is letting for £550 per week, a significant increase. And not only has her rental yield increased, but we've also added capital value to the property.
