We are thinking of making some major changes to the layout of our apartment. We have a 3 bathroom with 2 bedrooms, downstairs 60m2 with kitchen and upstairs of 60m2 – and then the 2 bedrooms + 2 bathrooms 60m2 downstairs.

The plan:

  1. Move main bedroom to upstairs (1 bathroom)
  2. Leave a TV and couch upstairs
  3. Move lounge downstairs
  4. Make the dining table fit downstairs
  5. Voila, 3 bedroom with 3 bathroom house

Issues that may arise:

  • Big room, plenty cold in winter
  • No door to close between downstairs and upstairs (security risk)
  • The braai area is upstairs directly where our bedroom will be


  • Big room with a lounge and computer area and bedroom
  • 2 patio doors to open  for air
  • Lovely views of Castle Kyalami and the river
