After 4 years of being our children's stuff catch-all, we finally renovated the studio apartment above the project room. Since it enjoys a private entrance, a functional kitchenette and oodles of natural light we decided to turn into a rental. Before we began, with its wall to wall carpeting and muted blue tones, the space wasn't exactly inviting. Afterwards, it became a bright, comfortable and functional haven for short SF or East Bay visits.
Firstly, we removed the carpet and replaced it with a gray-wash laminate flooring that made the space feel larger. The bathroom was enlarged, so it could accommodate a sink and a full size vanity for storage. Secondly, we created closet space and repaired the kitchenette. Lastly, we gave the studio distinct sleeping, lounging, and eating/working areas. The space is now officially listed on Airbnb. Take a look:
Who wouldn't like to spend a little time in this studio above the tree line?
