Finding the house or apartment of your dreams can be a nightmare. But sometimes we can find real jewels at a good price, and be delighted until we read the terrible phrase: apartment to be renovated.
Obviously, it will always be cheaper for us to renovate the apartment than to buy it already renovated. But sometimes the prospect of renovation can intimidate us. Although the simplest thing is simply to ask for a renovation loan or to use part of the mortgage for the renovation and to hire someone, if we are a little bit handy we can take part in the necessary works for it.
However, in both cases, you can see the renovation as an occasion. There is an ideal decoration style if you do not want to spend a lot of money on renovations, it’s stylish too!
Industrial style decoration
This style is ideal in the case of having acquired a property whose previous use has not been housing, but a commercial premise or especially an industrial complex. This style of decoration is based on not trying to hide the past of the property, but to show it and to make it cozy. With this style, you will save, for example, renovating old brick walls and peeling, it’s based on open spaces so you do not need to raise more walls than necessary, and takes advantage of the combination of decorative elements of metal and wood.
This style is not intended to mask the building materials. However, you have to be careful not to make it a “hovel”. First of all, the house must be habitable, so no matter how much we want to show the brick, the walls must be well insulated, and although having the facilities seen is not bad, they must be safe.
In addition, it is crucial that the decoration is in line with the style. Some elements such as beds or sofas can be more classic, but if you don’t find the balance, you can end up decorating your house as a horrendous mix of styles.
