Organization of space

For the lazy: an express guide for the arrangement of a small studio apartment

Studio - sounds promising, but if it'sA small flat, then the problems in it are almost the same as that of the usual malometrazhek, but there is one absolute plus - a smaller number of partitions. That's what we're going to play. What is life in a small studio? This is the permanent state of the permutation. Eternal quest for an ideal solution and an almost endless sense of dissatisfaction. The key to a happy life in a small apartment is the optimization of space. It is possible that the already available setting copes with most tasks and in many respects suits you, but for sure there is an option that you did not know about - and that's it and it will be your find. Designer Kelsi Vande Velden (Kelsi Vande Velden) recommends drawing a detailed plan of the apartment, cutting out all pieces of furniture and playing in the long-forgotten children's game "collect the house." This approach will help you to discover all the "dead zones" and take a fresh look at the already bored things.

1. Organization above all

The smaller the space, the moreSpace for storage systems - this is the harsh truth of life. Let the storage organization become your priority. Get rid of everything that you no longer need, safely hand out things that have not been worn for more than a year and do not miss a single opportunity - containers, organizers, chests. Now the underwear can be conveniently placed even under the bed.

2. Light also matters

Live in a cave modern man is not stuck,Therefore we will not neglect competent lighting. First you need to rethink the attitude to the curtains - all thick and heavy curtains should be best presented to acquaintances who have apartments with huge rooms and high ceilings, and light, translucent curtains, or even complete freedom from them, are more suitable for your tiny studio. As for the fixtures, it will be most sensible to select them with special attention to appearance and correspondence to the environment. A stylish lamp will not only disperse the darkness, but also divert attention from the size of the room, and that is our goal.

3. Two-three-four in one

Carry out an audit of all pieces of furniture andMake sure that each of them can be operated in at least two directions. Sofa-bed, console-toilet table-folding dining table, chest-coffee table, window sill-work surface, etc. Given the lack of space, we can not afford "monosyllables", so look for transformers.

4. Move vertically

If the area has let down, there is onlyPull the scale up. If the cabinets, then the ceiling, if the curtain, then the floor, well, and if you can not live without art objects, choose high and elongated. Another option is a vertical photo gallery.

5. Restrained zoning

Try to avoid partitions, about plasterboardForget how about a terrible dream. Your option is a division into zones with the help of decor, light curtains, screens and thoughtful arrangement of furniture. Zoning with decor only sounds difficult and expensive, in fact, you can do "little blood" by gluing only one wall or even a part of it with contrasting wallpaper, or by placing the carpet in the right place.
