At some stages of life, a change is more than welcome.
Planning the new house, idealizing every corner of it, dreaming about the new life that will be lived there is energizing.
But moving, whether to a private or rented apartment, always involves a certain amount of investment and requires a lot of planning, doesn’t it?
None of us want to be taken by surprise and receive a bigger bill than we were willing to pay to have our corner like you.
1. Apartment of 50 m² with gourmet balcony delivered to the subfloor in Brooklin (SP)
The T&V couple fulfilled their dream of home ownership. The apartment is the type that is in high demand in São Paulo: small, with kitchen and gourmet terrace integrated and spacious and was delivered on the sub-floor.
This means that they had to go through construction work to leave the apartment the way they always dreamed. They invested in quality floors, coatings, plaster and joinery that convey warmth and are cost-effective.
Take a look at the magic:

To make the kitchen and terrace integrated, ready to receive friends, they invested approximately R$16,000.
Most of the investment was directed to the work (materials and labor), refrigerator, cooktop, table and chairs and the closing of the balcony. The investment to get the rest of the apartment ready was in the range of R$90,000, with more than half of that amount referring to construction and carpentry costs.
Part of this investment made in the work, few people know, is deducted from taxes when it comes to reselling the apartment. We’ll explain this in more detail in a new post. 😉
2. Apartment of 100m² delivered already with the work and joinery ready in Brooklin (SP)
RB bought your apartment from the first owner. When he got the keys, the property already had floors, coatings and carpentry ready!
She dreamed of a clean room, with neutral colors, brick on the wall and a beach feel. Take a look at this amazing before and after:
RB’s dining and living rooms, exactly as it was on the day she signed the apartment purchase contract RB room already considering her personality and style, nothing impersonal and full of warmth and elegance
To get the dining room ready, with the pictures on the brick wall and the dishes inside the sideboard, she invested a little less than R$ 10,000, with most of the investment going to the brick wall, dining table, and the 8 chairs. In the living room, RB invested in the sofa, rug, lampshade, and material tables, totaling R$7,000.
3. Old apartment in Pinheiros renovated to gain modern air
The H&C couple returned to Brazil willing to transform the family’s old apartment into their new home, just like them.
They chose to redo the joinery, invest in new coatings and even tinker with some elements of civil works.
Our starting point was as follows:
Room in the H&C apartment before the renovation, still unfurnished
To make the room look beautiful and up to date, the couple invested around R$18,000, including civil works, joinery and furniture.

In this case, it was necessary to redo the ceiling, change floors and purchase the recommended furniture. The bookcase, for example, was custom-designed to highlight their art books with LED lighting.
4. Costs involved in leaving a comfortable rented apartment
There are so many wonderful solutions on the market today that allow us to leave a rented apartment like ours! The A&L couple decided to live together and wanted to start life together on the right foot, in an environment that represented them.
Even though the apartment was rented, the two wanted the geometric painting on the wall and this was the biggest change we made to the environment. Just imagine what it’s like to come home from work after a tiring day and come across this piece of heaven:
A&L room with a wall and geometric rug, concrete pots for plants and a breathtaking color palette
They didn’t reuse any of the furniture they already had, so they bought everything new and invested approximately R$ 10,000 in this environment and all items recommended for them can be reused in the next apartment, if they move.
RW, like A&L, lives in a rented apartment and wanted a nice environment to receive family, friends and to enjoy his own company.
The apartment owner had already invested in a TV panel, so we took advantage of the item in the project. Check out:
This was the pre-renovation RW room RW room already with his face and style
To make the TV room look exactly like that, RW invested R$ 8,000 and, since then, his house is the point of all friends.
We selected these examples of projects made for both owned and rented apartments so you can have an idea of the investment needed to transform a space and make it look like a home.
With all the installment options, flexible payment terms and also with a very detailed curation of suppliers and service providers, it is perfectly possible to invest in your house without squeezing.
One of the many benefits of having professional help to decorate is the help to choose which element to investing in to have the desired effect and optimize each corner of the house, without wasting money.
