A spectacular reform, carried out by the Decoration studio Suspensivo Point, turned this house into the comfortable home that their owners wanted so much, a couple with young children. The terraced house, located in a residential area of northern Madrid, it was divided into three floors. Composed of the living room and kitchen, the lower one was left completely transparent, to facilitate mobility through it. Another plus that this area has is the splendid garden which is enjoyed both in summer and winter thanks to its enclosure.
The enclosure, which serves as a link between living room and porch, provides a feeling of spaciousness and a pleasant luminosity. Next to the access to the living room, the garden has an area with a special outdoor platform. On the second floor the bedrooms - the main one and the children's one - and two bathrooms were installed. The rooms are simply decorated with shades that invite relaxation. The spacious attic It was divided into two zones: a recreational one, reserved for the exclusive use of children, while the rest of the space was dedicated to storage. To access the upper floors, a iron structure ladder, finished with metallic paint, and safety glass railing, in order to avoid possible accidents.
As for the decoration, it is entirely due to the taste of its owner, who decided on design pieces, as seen in the Nordic style furniture or super modern armchairs from the living room, to the meticulous choice of carpets, lamps, and paintings distributed strategically throughout the house. The Soft colors they surround the environments, a uniformity broken only by the prominence of chosen pieces raised in tone. If we talk about coatings, we chose floating oak wood flooring, which provides warmth to the rooms, for the whole house, with the exception of the kitchen, in which polished cement was installed, and the bathrooms, with natural stone tiles.

- The union of the kitchen and the dining room, or American kitchen, provides above all comfort, by facilitating mobility, and a feeling of spaciousness. In addition, it is an ideal solution for small kitchens. It is important, yes, choose neutral coatings and finishes, which allow the integration of both spaces. An option to divide these environments occasionally is to make a sliding panel, which can be made of DM or glass.
- A tendency to take advantage of the space when the meters do not exceed is in the installation of cabinets mimetized with the wall, in whose interior a whole regiment of furniture and appliances is hidden. An optical effect that is achieved thanks to the absence of handles.
- The pavement of the kitchens should facilitate practical maintenance; A good option in shared spaces is to install laminates, ceramics or polished cement, which allow the visual continuity of the set.
