One-room apartment design: how to arrange furniture and visually increase the space

What if the area allows you to selectA few rooms, but there are only two windows in the apartment? How to plan six functional zones without using a single blind partition? We understand the example of odnushki for a couple - this apartment looks twice as much as it really is. How important is the availability of a design project and the help of a professional when repairing? There are a lot of answers to this question: somebody copes on their own, and someone prefers to create an interior for a pro. This story - just about the case when you should not start repairing an apartment without the help of a designer. The owners of this apartment on Alabyana Street are a married couple of middle-aged. He is a member of a large company, she is a housewife. They like to travel, lead an active lifestyle. There is an adult daughter who lives separately. The designer approached the designer at the stage of already begun repairs: a roughing was completed, a partition in the bathroom was built, walls and ceilings were plastered in the residential part of the apartment, wires for some lighting devices were installed, pads for sockets that were obviously missing, -transformer with upholstery of practical color. Sofya Todorovskaya, designer. Has been engaged in the design of private and public interiors since 1999. Interior Design was trained at the Department of Architectural Environment Design at the Moscow Institute of Architecture. He is a member of the International Union of Designers. The main thing in the work considers the freedom of creativity and at the same time the ability to hear the customer, to respect his attitude, because without sensitivity, sincerity and trust of one professionalism is not enough., +7 916 0894033 It would seem that at this stage it was necessary only to finish the repair, buy furniture, fixtures, accessories and settle in a new apartment. However, the owners quickly realized that they can not independently cope with a number of important tasks: from a competent layout and placement of furniture to the correct location of outlets and bathroom arrangement. So the cooperation between the customers and Sophia began: the design project was urgently made, and in parallel the finishing materials were selected, furniture and fixtures were ordered. Sofya Todorovskaya, designer: "A lot of the work done by the builders had to be remade. Strobli walls, adding pins under the sconce and ceiling fixtures, moved the location of the sockets, as after selecting the main pieces of furniture and accurately placing it on the plan it became clear that some sockets would be blocked. At this stage, the customers incurred certain financial costs and realized that having ordered a design project before the repair began, they would save not only time, but also material resources. Since the area of ​​this apartment is 62 square meters. M - large enough for a one-room, and windows with only two, the main task of the designer was to make a functional zoning space. Deaf partitions have decided not to use, so that daylight freely penetrates into all rooms of the apartment. During the redevelopment in the apartment six functional zones were formed: an entrance hall, a living room, a kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom. The bathroom was increased due to the hallway, the opening from which was dismantled into the living room, leaving only the partition so that there was no sense of space fragmentation. In the process of discussing the stylistics of the futureInterior designer and customers came to a common opinion - the apartment should be modern, without the classic elements. To design in this style did not turn out to be too minimalistic, Sophia proposed to make an interior in the style of contemporary: eco-friendly, functional, comfortable, cozy and associated with the concept of "luxurious simplicity". To maintain the integrity of the space, in the entire apartment used one wallpaper - a light-smoky color. So did the choice of floor coverings, picking the color of ceramic tiles for the hallway, kitchen and office as close to the color of the engineering array of silver-steel in the living room and bedroom. Sofya Todorovskaya, designer: - The basic for the style of the Contemporary is the neutral color scheme: black, white, shades of gray, beige and brown. These colors create an ideal basis for bright accents. And smooth forms and clean lines - one of the main features of interiors in this style. In order not to encumber the living space with cabinets, it was decided to equip the storage system for all clothing and other necessary things in the hallway, which in combination functions as a wardrobe room. A large mirror visually enlarges the space, and the color accent is a pencil made by Montbel with an upholstery of a muted dark-lilac color. In the living room area, the apartment owners facedTwo problems: where to place the TV and how to separate the living room from the kitchen, without blocking access to natural light. The solution was found in the form of a septum of 2-meter-high blocks, and decided to decorate the remaining distance with a stained-glass window made of tiffany colored glass. Thus, it turned out to be an almost isolated living room, bright and cozy. Brightness of the interior adds a carpet of dark-lilac color from 100% wool. The Bruhl sofa transformer, if necessary, serves as an extra bed. Coffee Flai company table of a transparent glass looks easily bent and air, and a fortified countertop container as dark purple color shade supports the carpet. The same color is present in the elements of the stained glass, and the pillows on the couch. The kitchen area was left in the same place, settingA spacious kitchen set by Beckermann. Is made of quartz agglomerate. The working surface is illuminated by hidden illumination, and the central ceiling lamp with shades from corrugated glass is combined with glass elements in stained glass. Sofya Todorovskaya, designer: - My customers can not live without news and sports programs, they should be aware of everything that is happening now in the world. Therefore, one of their wishes was to place TVs in each main zone of the apartment: in the bedroom, in the living room and in the kitchen. To do this, there was a small partition, which formed a cozy corner with a dining group, sconces and TV in the kitchen. The bedroom was decided to be located in the bay window with full natural light. From the public zone it was fenced off with a Poliform shelf with open shelves, allowing light from the window to penetrate the living room, and closed items where personal belongings can be stored. The bed was chosen with a high headboard, trimmed with fabric with folded folds: it gives it an elegant and at the same time cozy look. On the opposite wall, a television set and a modular Poliform storage system were installed. At the request of customers in the bedroom area allocatedPlace for an armchair in which one could safely read a book by the window. Above the head of the bed installed a panel of colored glass, made in the technique of tiffany. To create a chamber and cozy atmosphere, a bedside lamp with a textile lampshade was placed at the bed, making the light soft and diffused. The curtain is made of natural fabric, which includes flax and cotton. Quite difficult for work was the bathroomroom. First, the main desire of customers was the shower. In this case, the bathroom had to contain a bath, a washing machine, drying for linen and all necessary equipment. Secondly, when they decided to expand the bathroom, it turned out that only 200 mm was missing, so that the shower cubicle and equipment would fall into place. As a result, the doorway had to be removed, and on the sides of it a sink with a curbstone on one side and a washing machine and a dryer on the other. For finishing in the bathroom, ceramic tiles and a Marazzi mosaic of the color of natural stone from the Stone collection were chosen. To equip the apartment with a full workingPlace, decided to use the area of ​​the balcony: it was insulated and arranged under the cabinet. It housed a workstation with a computer and a Poliform shelf for storing books and documents, and Roman curtains made of natural linen cloth were installed on the windows. Sofya Todorovskaya, designer: - When I started the project, customers immediately accepted my proposals for planning and arranging furniture and equipment - it was very easy to work with them. Their trust and desire to correct mistakes made earlier, very inspired me when working on this project. In this interior were used: Entrance hall:
