Home located in Getxo
A home located in Getxo, designed by Sube Interiorismo, based on making the most of natural light along with a discreet and warm design complete with careful attention to detail and practical features in each room, especially in the living and dining areas.
The doors shown in all the photographs are lacquered, designed with decorative ribbing, smooth jambs, steel fittings and eye-catching Formani handles.
The living room
As seen in this nearly compete view of the living room, the centre is used for an oak table and two adjoining sofas and a spectacular oak wood bookshelf on one side that also serves as a cabinet, with doors that are lacquered and ribbed, following a currently trending finger-joint design.
Opposite the bookshelf is a false fireplace set in finger-jointed boarding, all lacquered in white, with an upper recess made from varnished oak veneer with back-lighted shelves.
The inside of the fireplace is furnished with oak wood, complete with decorative plants.
The dining room area
The dining room area or dining-room and kitchen area accessed from the living room by a metal door. This area is set apart by four columns, clad in elm wood board with the top and bottom skirting finished in solid oak.
A bar counter has been installed between the columns that flank the kitchen. This solution is highly versatile, since the owners can use it as a breakfast table.
It also has a practical use: several sockets have been installed on the interior faces of the columns and on the part of the counter facing the kitchen, along with hidden led lighting that illuminates the panel of vertical lacquered slats under the counter to give the sensation of a bar front.
These lacquered vertical slats have also been placed on the sides of the kitchen area to complete the integration of the kitchen design with the dining room.
There is a magnificent view of the living room from the kitchen through the two columns and glass window at the front of the dining area. The effect is that of a spacious, unobstructed room. It is quite uncommon to achieve the visual conjunction of the living room, dining room and kitchen in a home, with access to the bedrooms and terrace. This is where the decoration studio has taken advantage of the natural light, which plays a major role in all the rooms of the home.
Children’s room and bathroom
The children’s room has been furnished with a hideaway bed, with vertical slats lacquered in white, and wooden handles lacquered in the same colour.
On the wall hangs a house-shaped oak headboard with a light fixture in the centre. Opposite the headboard is a lacquered bookshelf with the same shape, which has 3 deep drawers for toys at the bottom. Also seen in this room is the skirting that can be found throughout the home. The skirting is lacquered, 15 cm-high with a groove running along the top, while all the window sills are finished with lacquered board.
A feature to highlight is the children’s bathroom, furnished with a lacquered wash-stand and grille with bars at the bottom. The interior is laminated oak, while the front is composed of lacquered ribbed slats in a cosy greenish grey that contrasts with the white Formani handle.
The mirror is made of oak wood and shaped to match the triangular house shapes in the bedroom. Part of the wall has been clad up to the ceiling, as well as the sill.
Master bedroom and bathroom
The master bathroom is fitted with a wash-stand finished in oak and lacquer, a window with same combination of oak and lacquer finish and a mirror framed in oak wood. The wash-stand is made of laminated oak with natural oak on the outside. The front of the drawers are made from lacquered ribbed board and a great deal of affection.
The window frame is made of oak board and the panes are framed in lacquered wood, with thin false moulding on each side that makes cleaning easy and provides a very pleasant aesthetic appearance.
Both bathrooms have natural oak wood recesses with overlaying shelves where light fixtures can be placed on the edges. This back-lighting is a very attractive feature.
The oak wood headboard in the master bedroom merits special mention. The veneer is 15 cm-wide and a led light fixture at the top illuminates the wall. Although apparently simple to build, it is very complicated to match the veneers from the same tree so the entire pattern comes together perfectly.
