So many excellent ideas here. The use of paint to change the room’s proportions and reduce the visual height of the wardrobe. The divider between the teens’ beds. The separation of the loo - very sensible when there is only space for one bathroom and one loo. The washing machine in the bathroom, not the kitchen. Ideally I would not have partitioned off the kitchen or hallway so that the space felt even bigger, but perhaps the structural costs of opening it all up were prohibitive.

Excellent transformation. I especially like the defined different zones of the kitchen/diner/sitting room whilst keeping the areas open and linked. Good idea to give the girls their own separate space. Dad must be woken up very early in the Summer as there doesn’t seem to be blinds to the window but flat is in France, I am assuming there are outside shutters. I also would add a foldable screen so can Dad have a bit of privacy.
