How to make a small room look great? How to make it convenient and functional at the same time? We begin with furniture: we are looking for objects capable of miracles, and we study the rules of their arrangement in space on real examples. Do you think that yours? Are your rooms filled with drawers and cabinets, but there is still not enough space? Finally, the smallest of the sofas in the furniture salon occupied half of the living room? Most likely, you have problems with the selection of furniture. Small rooms require a special approach, in which everything must be thought out: from color and size to a complete set of various functions. Mimicry The simplest and most obvious waymake the closet or chest appear smaller - visually connect it with the wall. We are so used to this reception in dairy and beige interiors that we often do not think about its content. But in vain. The essence of the reception is not in the chosen key, but in the consonance of colors. So, white furniture on a dark background in a small space will look as cumbersome as the dark on the light. Designers offer to choose individual items for the color of the walls and repeat on the nightstand wallpaper. And it works! Mirror effect Excellent solution for narrow andtiny spaces. It is effective and able to decorate any interior, from classics and art deco to minimalism; it visibly enlarges the room visually by reflecting the surface and adds light. But there are also disadvantages: mirror furniture, like all polished items, easily gets dirty and requires additional care, can be scratched and is somewhat more expensive than conventional counterparts. Invisibility table If you need to hidethe necessary object in the center of the room, then there is nothing better than glass and plastic. in a small living room, a transparent chair in a narrow boudoir or near a built-in office - exactly what you are looking for. For those who are ready for courageous experiments, there are even plastic sofas. And in terms of reliability, they are not inferior to their traditional counterparts. Functional minimalism To solve the problemin the complex - to get enough space to store everything necessary and to maximally relieve a small area - it is worth considering the furniture made to order. Such designs are calculated literally in millimeters, so that the overall feeling of a monolithic "wall" is created visually - without unnecessary details and ornaments, with simple straight facades without handles. For optimal effect, cabinets, pull-out desks and consoles, TV sets and even beds are built into the system of modules. White domination is not necessary. The individual parts of the structure can be made in bright colors. For fans of industrial style, a combination of wood and steel is suitable, and fans of ecological design will surely like wooden facades or plywood. Proportionality In the opinion of the majorityprofessionals, the most common mistake made by a modern furniture buyer is a violation of the rule of proportionality. We proceed from the fact that a small room needs small items. But this is not so, the furniture should be proportionate to the room. Nothing so clutter a room as a lot of small things arranged in it. As a rule, a more effective method is the use of several large objects. But they should be enough to satisfy all requests and needs. And if these items are chosen reasonably and accurately, even the smallest room will surprise you.
