The three-room apartment in this new development in Kakumäe provided room and spaciousness, but was based on a standardized plan and did not take the character and needs of the family in consideration. The goal of the new interior solution was to increase its functionality and adapt the apartment to the needs and tastes of occupants. The greatest challenge was replacing and supplementing the existing designs with more practical ones, and thus creating a personal and complete home that would be more suitable for the family’s everyday needs. Previously, there was no place for a dining table in the rather spacious living room, and the rest area with a sofa was located in a passageway.

The solution was to redesign the kitchen island and line it up with the dining table. A good and functional result was achieved with clever techniques, i.e. the wood of the dining table continued on to the stone surface of the kitchen island, thereby acting as an extension of the island, rather than a separate object. The kitchen hood was also replaced and more practical and visually appropriate lighting was installed above the island.

The lounge area with a sofa and a TV-watching area were swapped to create a more private and comfortable corner. By redesigning the electrical plan, the wires and cables were removed, and a visually cleaner and more aesthetic result was achieved echoed by the airy display cabinets and console.

Thanks to the spacious closets designed for the hallway and other rooms, additional storage space was created and the overall appearance of the apartment also improved. The existing walnut-tone parquet and window details and grey ceramic tiles in the public spaces were harmonized with the calm white and grey tones and walnut details on larger surfaces. A green sofa, a terracotta-coloured carpet, lamps with an industrial feel and family photos on the walls add a refreshing accent to the otherwise mellow atmosphere. The children’s room also got a new makeover thanks to some cheerful bursts of colour.
