Today I want to address the important and difficult subject — Living room sets for small spaces.
Very often, looking through magazines publishing magnificent interiors of luxury apartments and town houses, you may think about how far are these fantastic pictures from the real small space apartments, where 99% of inhabitants of big cities live. Moreover, large design agencies refuse to work with small spaces because of the low profit of such projects.
So, everything is in our hands! I would like to share with you the tips for remodeling and decorating small spaces apartments. And I hope the photos will give you inspiration and new ideas.
Living room sets for small spaces: functional zoning
Each room in small apartment has several functions. Modern small apartment does not allow a separate kitchen, dining room, living room and study room. However, an appropriate zoning easily solves this problem. Here are some good, in my opinion, examples:
Kitchen + dining + living + office + library
Living room + office
Bedroom + living room + office
Bedroom + work place
Tiny room combines sleeping and work areas
Dressing room organized in a small bedroom.
One of our projects was created just for small studio apartments. In this case, a single room is split into bedroom and living room zones.
The issue of zoning is successfully solved by flooring — carpet in the living area, tiles in the kitchen, wood floor in the hallway. Here we should pay special attention to the harmonious combination of materials and colors.
A living room combined with a kitchen is a real gem for small apartments! If your home allows you to make remodeling and combining two rooms, we advise you to pay attention to this option. This will allow to get a single free space to communicate with family and friends, where all have enough space and no one feels isolated while cooking dinner in the kitchen.
If you live in a small spaces, it is better not to consider the classics with its ruffles, ruffles and lots of details. All this visually “eats” small spaces rooms. Choose simple forms and neutral materials — Roman blinds instead of curtains with swags, plain textile embroidered velvet and tapestry.
Do not fill all the shelves in the house if possible. Leave some shelves half empty, and you will avoid the clutter effect, while the interior will be more elegant and refined.
The ability to get rid of the clutter is a priceless value for the owner of a small space. Get rid of the furniture that stand out of the overall concept of the interior or not used for its intended purpose. Remove all those numerous souvenirs brought from trips, hide all unnecessary items inside bins and boxes. Regular cleaning and painstaking analysis of all that is on your mind, will help to save the space of your small home.
