WOW! Well this is a turn up for the books…

Welcome back to our weekly round-up of homify Malaysia's most popular articles, and this one is a doozy. Usually, our top five features a pretty varied selection of topics—small homes, beautiful bathrooms, and storage tips are all staple favourites. However, this week you guys only wanted to see one thing… before and after stories!

This week, we present to you not one, not two, but FOUR of the most-loved home renovations from the past seven days. Our architects have been busy rejuvenating these hopeless old houses, and you just can't get enough. 

It's not all makeovers, though—there's an odd story hidden in the mix, too, but you'll have to read on to find out what it is. Enjoy!

#1. From mess to minimal

Salvador based architects P2 Arquitetos Associados saw this cluttered and dated how transformed into a bright, airy, and comfortable living environment! The makeover is no grandiose feat, but it does what it needs to do: makes the home inviting. 

By refining the colour palette, implementing excellent storage solutions, and organising the space so it flows freely, the design team was able to create dramatic results without a dramatic budget. Don't believe us? Let's take a look at the before and after shots so you can see for yourself and decide what you think…

2. From rough to room with a view

Our second best before and after tells the story of a neglected family home that saw its fortunes reversed due to the inspired work of Light&Salt Design. Now, kids are great, but we all know the impact they can have on your previously nice home, so the owners of this particular flat decided it was time to do something before it got out of hand. The rooms were dusty and full of clutter, the furniture was dated, and the whole house was in desperate need of a little love and attention.

Want to see how it turned out? Take a look!

3. From chaos to charming

For many people, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s a focal point where the family comes together, and often, the place where you’ll enjoy a cup of coffee with a guest. Across so many cultures, and irrespective of the home’s size, the kitchen has particular significance.

That's why it's so sad when homeowners allow their kitchen to languish in disrepair, as was the case with this home. Thankfully, the team at Boss Kitchens were on hand to turn it around. Let's see how it turned out…

4. The odd one out

This is it—the one top five article that has nothing to do with home makeovers!

Kitchens are often a tricky room to decorate, and the cost of doing so can skyrocket. That's why we provided you with this list of 11 genius design tricks that will improve any kitchen, and will save you more space than you could ever believe possible. Tip number seven is particularly clever - check it out and copy now!

5. From sham to glam

The final article in our top five round up is one that has certainly lifted the spirits of the lucky inhabitants. This shabby home was fixed up by the interior architects at Maria Helene Torres Architecture and Design, and is located in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. 

This renovation shows how to achieve balance with a white interior by using accessories that create different colour and texture contrasts.  Let's explore together…

That's all for this week! Remember to stay tuned to homify for more magical makeovers, inspiring tours and helpful home hacks. See you next Sunday!
