House and Leisure Before and After - - RENOVATION #7 -

SMART FIN­ISHES Be­cause Hanno and Nico were ren­o­vat­ing on a bud­get, they had to make im­por­tant calls about where to splurge and where to save. Opt­ing for melamine in­stead of Duco lac­quer on all cab­i­netry helped to bring costs down sig­nif­i­cantly, and the mix of grey tones also serves to give the fin­ish a con­tem­po­rary edge. ‘The trick is to use a darker shade on the in­side of your cup­boards – it feels more so­phis­ti­cated,’ says Hanno.
