Milk and cook­ies, Bat­man and Robin, Net­flix and chill­ing: some things in life are just bet­ter to­gether than apart. The same is true for Max and Michelle Che­ung, a mar­ried cou­ple tasked with the project of re­fur­bish­ing their 770sqft home in Tai Hang.

Though nei­ther of them are de­sign­ers, the duo joined creative forces on their home, en­list­ing only a con­trac­tor to help ex­e­cute their vi­sion – to ex­quis­ite re­sults, meld­ing to­gether clas­sic de­tails with modern touches.

As self-con­fessed home­bod­ies – “we are def­i­nitely a cou­ple that likes to stay in,” says Michelle – it was im­por­tant for them that their abode be spa­cious and stor­age-smart. “We ac­tively took de­ci­sions to ar­ti­fi­cially ex­pand our space,” she ex­plains, un­pack­ing the changes made to the orig­i­nal floor plan: adding a guest bath­room, knock­ing down walls to en­large the mas­ter bath­room, shift­ing a wall to make room for a shoe cup­board, con­vert­ing the kitchen lay­out to an 'L' shape, and cre­at­ing space for a stor­age closet, the wash­ing ma­chine and dryer.

牛奶與曲奇、蝙蝠俠與羅賓、Net­flix與悠閒假日:人生中有些人與事定要成雙成對才算圓滿。Max和Michelle Che­ung夫婦屬又一力證。二人互相補足、大展創意天賦合力翻新770平方呎的大坑家園。

儘管他們並非是專業設計師,但翻新工程中僅需聘請承建商便已能活現心目中的家居模樣,成果就是由經典細節與現代點綴交織而成的精緻設計。

擁戴家居生活的Max和Michelle表示:「我們都喜歡待在家。」寬闊開揚又能方便儲物的家居對他們來說尤其重要。Michelle續說:「我們作了多個決定讓居所看來更寬廣。」他們在原裝格局上作多項改動:加設客戶、拆牆建出更大的主人浴室、更改牆壁位置容納鞋櫃、把廚房的格局改成L形、預留更多空位擺放衣櫃、洗衣機和乾衣機。
