Storage system, zoning tool, cachefor a bed - this is not a complete list of roles that can be played in the interior of the usual podium. And what else is he capable of, we tell in today's material Why architects and designers love the catwalks so much? It's simple: they save space considerably, they are an additional storage space and in principle make the space more solid and less cluttered. And the podium can be used in any room: from a nursery to a bathroom. For those who still doubt its effectiveness, we collected 7 ideas on using the podium in the interior. 1. Zoning space The podium is one of the most convenient zoning tools after partitions. With its help, you can simply allocate any part of the room, and even raise a whole area on the upper level: a sleeping or a working place. If you only need to designate the boundaries, you can replace the full podium with an easy and low-cost alternative, for example from building pallets. 2. Saves space Do you like to receive guests, but there is no place for a folding sofa and even more so a guest bed? It can easily be hidden in the podium. Many work at home, but for a full-fledged workplace there is not enough square meters? Mount the folding table into the high podium. Adore books, but do not know where to put a rich library? The answer is the same: in the podium! It is thanks to its functionality and the ability to hide not only things, but also whole pieces of furniture, it is indispensable in a small apartment. 3. Changing the proportions Another is not the most obvious, but extremely useful ability - the ability to visually adjust the proportions of the room. If the ceilings are too high, he will make the room lower, and if it is too narrow, then with the help of the podium will appear a little wider. Also, angular podiums help to change the visual perception of the room. 4. Provides storage Podium is not just a relief, but also a great place for additional, and in some cases, basic storage. If it has a sleeping place, then inside such a podium free space will be comparable with a roomy chest of drawers, and even a whole wardrobe. Inside, space can be divided into small boxes or left unlimited to store massive things, like blankets, winter clothes or sports equipment. 5. Hiding furniture Furniture-transformer - something without which there will not be a single small apartment. If the area of housing is very tiny, the podium, especially high, can become a container of not even one but several pieces of furniture: for example, a wardrobe, a bedroom and a workplace. 6. Masks communications. Let's not forget about the bathroom: if you do not hide the plumbing communications in the wall, and you want to keep the aesthetics, you can cover them with a podium. Make it can be both low and high. In the second case, you can partially immerse the bowl in the podium. The main thing is to think out the material from which you will make it, and make sure that if you need to cut off the water you can easily reach the pipes. Interior studio UB.DESIGN 7. Becomes a playground In the podium for children there are a number of uses: on it you can place a bed, but inside, use it as a stage or much more. Also, the podium itself can be an excellent multi-tiered playground, because children love to explore something themselves and climb higher - for this, even complex game complexes are not needed.
