1. 25-meter apartment with a cozy bedroom and a dressing room

A young couple lives in this Parisianthis designer had to meet the requirements of two at once. An unexpected symbiosis of industrial and vintage styles was chosen as a style solution. Calm colors and classic forms coexist here with factory lamps and chairs. A tiny place was found for the bedroom, in which, however, they managed to equip a dressing room.

2. How to make a tiny studio spacious and light

Everything is simple in this one - a restrained gray palette,several bright accents and furniture that performs several functions at once. The office is hiding in the closet here, the bed falls right out of the wall, and you will never guess where the dining table is hiding. In our opinion, this is one of the best ways to use the possibilities of a small apartment. In the "assembled" form, the apartment looks quite spacious and bright.

3. How to equip an apartment just 16 meters

Love black, but are afraid to usehim in his small size? Take a look at this one. Stylish, original and not at all dark! Of course, it is obvious that a lonely bachelor lives here, but, despite the clear "male trace", it is still very cozy here. The living area is a very small space with hidden storage systems and a bed hanging directly above the front door. Here, too, there is where to take the soul - the terrace, although very small, is very cozy.

4. All functional areas on 8 square meters

Well, what can fit?With proper engineering equipment and mathematical precision, such a trailer can be turned into an architectural analogue of a Swiss knife. With one light press, a table with chairs, a staircase with bookshelves, a wardrobe and even a whole bathroom fall out of the wall. The question remains: how much did the cost of the apartment differ from the cost of finishing?

5. Two-storey 22-meter apartment

This one in New York belongs to a college professorand therefore desperately needed a library. Of course, 22 meters, and even on two floors, had little even to create the necessary zones, but there was still a place for the library. On the second floor, there is a bedroom with the same library, and on the first, the designer managed to organize a kitchen, a living room and even an office. And you say - small-sized ...

6. Africa and Scandinavia at 45 meters

designer Alexander White asas if trying to answer the question of what is common between Africa and Scandinavia. In general, there is little in common between them. However, in a competent combination, African ethno and Scandinavian style look very much even nothing. The freshness and dynamics of this interior, coupled with original forms, perfectly cope with the task of “taking the eyes off” from the main drawback of this space - its small size.

7. Micro-loft: 40 meters on two floors

We are used to what a loft isa space the size of a basketball court, framed by brickwork and outdoor wiring. However, many people are so fond of this style that recently it increasingly finds its embodiment in seemingly completely impossible incarnations for themselves. For example, a small apartment, divided into 2.5 levels (let's not forget about a tiny terrace), received a modern minimalistic finish and a generally simple layout. The designers solved the problem of the lack of storage space in a rather interesting way - all things were distributed in sections of the stairs.

8. Odinushka in Soho with unusual zoning

The main accent of this is a sculptural object in the veryits center, where the entrance group and the bathroom are hidden behind the curly partitions. On both sides of the central composition there is a free zone where you can dance or do push-ups, and a bedroom, consisting of a bed, a lamp and a ficus. The original ascetics will definitely appreciate it.

9. 42-meter apartment in New York

The main feature of this one is that it is removable.The owner had to independently create coziness and highlight accents. In our opinion, everything succeeded, even despite the fact that the owner used the most favorite way for him by the Russians. Most of the furniture in this apartment is distributed along the walls. However, despite this, the interior looks quite cozy and even original. The secret is in the brick wall and the rack echoing it with originality.

10. How to fully live at 16 meters

Do you want to visit the head of an architect?Check out this Boeing Systems Engineer. A real labyrinth of consciousness on 16 meters and three levels of living space. The approach to zoning in this apartment is, of course, unusual, and may not be to everyone's taste, however, if low ceilings and bicycles hanging from the ceiling do not bother you, we advise you to carefully consider the experience of the owner of this apartment, who, by the way, designed it himself interior.
