An Apartment Renovation Story

A full house or apartment renovation is no easy feat. It’s fairly easy to notice when things are old, worn and overdue for an update, but having the foresight to imagine the final product is a tall order.

DesireToInspire.net is a fairly intuitively named website. They take creative ideas in just about every area you can think of and relay them back out to the internet for people to use as inspiration or duplicate for their own purposes. In this apartment renovation story, a young man named Ron and his girlfriend bought their first apartment together in Tel Aviv, Israel, and from the looks of things, they had a pretty phenomenal outcome after starting out with a very bleak looking living space.

Ron writes:

I’m 27 years old and live in Tel Aviv Israel, currently an industrial design student. Me and my girlfriend just bought our first apartment and decided to design it completely by ourselves.

Obviously not everyone out there just happens to be an industrial designer like our friend Ron, but there’s no reason why you can’t draw inspiration from a lot of the ideas he used in his apartment renovation. After all, that’s exactly what DesireToInspire.net is all about.

Upon completion of his apartment renovation, Ron continues to write:

In short we re-did the whole place:
Tore down the wall in the kitchen opening it up to the living room and dining area.
United the the bathroom making one long and spacious bathroom
Made the bedroom bigger by closing a indoor balcony.
A bar that comes out of the wall.

I personally designed and built most of the items seen in the pictures:
Large wall clock
Floating unit below the tv
round table and red chairs
table, pipe lamp and the cats playing area which is hung in the red room
faucet in the bathroom
wooden bar
lights in the living room (with red cords)
bed and side table in bedroom.
