Unusual bachelor apartment in Kiev: what men want

What are the storage problems of things?Men? If you think that only girls always have nowhere to put their things, be sure to read our article. How do you imagine a man's apartment? Dark, filled with concrete and untidy bedroom? Modern men appreciate the comfort and comfort of at least women, and sometimes even more. To understand the customer-man and create for him a comfortable and beautiful house took two girls from the design bureau Bohostudio. Elizabeth Pyshneva, designer Graduated from Mykolayiv Shipbuilding University with a degree in interior design. In 2013 she organized her own studio Bohostudio together with Julia Tyuryakova. Girls have been working together for several years, during this time there was an excellent understanding not only of each other, but also an excellent idea of ​​what the customer wants. In the interiors, they try to create complete comfort, functionality and display the character of its inhabitants in the room. Julia Tyuryakova, designer Graduated from Mykolayiv Shipbuilding University, specializing in interior design. Then Kiev State University of Decorative and Applied Arts. Boychuk on the specialty of "design environment." In 2013, I started working in my own studio Bohostudio. The owner of this apartment is a young and very active man. He is keen on extreme sports, often travels a lot: working trips or tourist trips. Most of all he loves Europe and, in particular, London. The apartment is located in Kiev. The original layout of this apartment was unusually unsuccessful. For this reason, the designers changed the kitchen and the room, combined the kitchen with the living room, the corridor and the balcony. As a result, it turned out bright and quite spacious room for 56 square meters. In separate areas of the girl isolated only a bedroom and a bathroom. A young customer wanted a modern, but not tooMinimalistic interior. It should have been a pleasure to relax in the evening from work, to receive guests in a comfortable and warm atmosphere or to arrange a small party. So the main task was to create a bright and functional interior in a modern style, complemented by bright furniture and decor elements. Julia Tyuryakova, designer: - Separately, we thought about storage systems. Yes, yes, the problem with storing things happens in men. Not like the girls, of course. It's about sports equipment, which the customer had in a huge amount: boards, wake, sportswear. So we came up with a large multifunctional closet combining the hallway and the living room. And also a wardrobe in the bedroom for personal items. It would seem that this apartment is atypically bright and bright for a man. But the customer immediately liked the colors offered by the designers. Probably because she is as dynamic as his way of life. Light interior and white walls dilute dark spots and bright accents of red furniture and decor. But the most striking and saturated accent was a wonderful retro-refrigerator from SMEG. The main lighting in the apartment is presentedPoint invoices and built-in lamps throughout the perimeter of the apartment. The minimalistic interior is slightly diluted with a modern sconce in the living room area from IKEA and a retro luminaire from one Ukrainian online store ( The lamp in the hallway consists of several blocks. He was made to order according to the sketches of designers. The bedroom is lit by two sconces near the bed and a cozy floor lamp from the Ukrainian manufacturer. Elizaveta Pyshneva, designer: - For this project we have chosen simple geometric forms of furniture and rather unusual constructive solutions. Most of the furniture was made by local craftsmen to order in Ukrainian production. Even doors were made to order - they are very tall, painted with white paint, which visually increases the height of the ceiling. Did their Ukrainian workshop Heartwood. Kitchen furniture has a complex asymmetric shape, which is due in part to its layout. Facades are decorated with a bright oak, and the table top is made of stone - all in the Kiev company L-master. The room is decorated with the famous Acapulco chair, and the dining room chairs are from the Italian company Calligaris. In the interior there are quite a few pieces of furniture andDecor from IKEA. In the hallway a decorative panel with a bench made of plywood became a very bright element - it was made by the master Taras Savchuk. This panel is not just decorative, but also functional: hook pegs can be rearranged (and they also allude to the hobby of the host of the apartment by sport), behind one of the panels there is a technological hatch. Bathroom in the apartment is small, combined -An area of ​​4.6 square meters. M. However, it contains all the necessary elements. And comfort creates a floor from a natural tree. One of the walls is completely mirrored, which creates the illusion of space. The bedroom is made extremely laconic and even slightlyAscetic. The gray color scheme created a very cozy and enveloping atmosphere. And the bed here seems to float in the air. All the furniture in the bedroom is made to order by Kiev masters. When implementing this project, designersFaced with only one problem - the lack of a freight elevator, so all the building materials had to be worn on foot on the 20th floor. It took a lot of time and effort. However, the project was completed in three months. Its cost was about 30 000 dollars.

A few tips from designers Bohostudio on the design of a small apartment:

  • Most importantly, do not be afraid of radical changes in thePlanning in favor of individual life needs. Bold decisions will help not only to create a pleasant atmosphere, but also to gain a few square meters, if it comes to small-size.
  • If the interior is too white and sterile - dilute it with interesting designer furniture and lights.
  • It is not necessary to spend a lot of money on the décor of the home. Most of the time you can do many things with your own hands.
  • The correct arrangement of lighting is the guarantee of a cozy interior. Therefore, pay more attention to this issue. Just a ceiling chandelier will not be enough.
  • If your apartment or separate rooms haveNon-standard layout, order furniture on an individual project. It will cost more, but will save you from unnecessary gaps and gaps between cabinets. Find the same furniture in the store is almost impossible.
