DIY renovation of old buildings

In 2021, Angela from Interior Blog @elaperona bought a 100-year-old vicarage in the country with her husband, which they are largely renovating themselves. The bathroom should have a minimalist look that radiates warmth and security by the harmonisation of natural materials and rounded shapes.The ELLIPSO DUO OVAL from KALDEWEI was the perfect choice for our house, as it combines a clean, minimalist design with nostalgic details interpreted in a modern way. The shape that tapers downwards also has the advantage that the bathtub in our compact bathroom looks very airy. We decided on the MIENA washbowl to go with it, which, as a rectangular version with rounded edges, looks modern and at the same time very elegant. Looking at the slender design of the washbowl, you cannot tell that it is made of robust steel enamel and is therefore very durable. In addition to the free-standing bathtub, a generous floor-level walk-in shower was one of our big wishes, but this is often very difficult to implement in an old building. The KALDEWEI system board for NEXSYS shower surfaces was our absolute salvation which allowed us to get to the right height! Thanks to the many adjustable feet of the board, without a complicated substructure we were easily able to compensate for the very uneven floor structure which is typical of old buildings. In the guest bathroom, we opted for a black Cono washbasin. The coordination of the special colours and the marble surface behind the washbasin make the bathroom a real eye-catcher. The washbasin made of sustainable steel enamel harmonises perfectly with the natural colours of the bathroom and gives the room a particularly natural flair. With the sanitary objects from KALDEWEI, we have fulfilled a bathroom dream that makes no compromises in terms of design or sustainability! It is such a highlight for us every day to enter our little oasis of well-being.
