There is no telling what can happen to a space if it’s neglected for long enough. Well, you don’t need to use your imagination, because today’s ‘before and after’ piece shows us exactly how horridly a home can deteriorate if it doesn’t receive adequate TLC.

A simple paintjob and new rugs weren’t going to cut it – this house deserved a serious makeover! And with a firm commitment to the industrial style, that’s exactly what it got…

Before: Not only was the place a cluttered mess, but those walls didn’t do anything to entice us to enter.

After: How enticing and mysterious is that new façade? So much texture and character is enjoyed, thanks to the wood, brick and metal – who doesn’t love the industrial style?

After: Although no generous windows can be spotted, the space does feel lighter thanks to an open-plan layout, plus the dazzling lighting fixtures.

After: Now this is one kitchen we surely wouldn’t mind spending some quality time in! Perfect for cooking and socialising!

After: That wooden panelling becomes the main focal piece in this stunning bedroom. And what do you think of those gorgeous niches?

After: Some fresh air and natural lighting fills the room via the glass doors, which lead out onto a minimalist/Asian-style balcony.

After: Glass walls separate the bathroom from the living area, yet the heavy curtains are ideal for maintaining privacy.

After: There was even enough space for a slim little courtyard/conservatory, ensuring a touch of green freshness for this house’s new look.

Now for some local flavour; let’s see An upgrade of an outdated Pretoria home.
