Variations on the theme of a small space
If your apartment does not differ impressive size, it's not a reason to be upset. Using simple techniques, you can transform even limited space into a functional, stylish and comfortable home.
The first step on the path to updating is the idea, and it does not matter whether you use the services of a professional decorator or try to realize their ideas independently. If you don't want to completely change the interior, restricting only new parts, time to create a favorable space you'll need not too much.
The first step is the General cleaning of the premises, and parting with all those things that you do not actually need, be it a selection of magazines, which was the last time you thumbed a few years ago, or bulky chair inherited, which you did not dare to throw away. Think sensibly, without which it is possible to do, not sparing old junk and non-functional things.
You can think about remodeling is as a radical, get rid of the "extra" walls (for example, combine the bathroom with a toilet or turn the apartment into a comfortable and trendy Studio), and more soft – zoning. Consider in what part of the apartment or house is conveniently positioned a particular area. For example, a loggia or a balcony by simple manipulations may turn either in the Cabinet or in the cinema, or even in a makeshift living room. Sometimes you can sacrifice the kitchen – if you are not a fan of cooking and dining in at most a few times a month, the size of this space can be used more useful, leaving only a small bar, a small refrigerator and a minimum household appliances. The most popular method of zoning is an Association of bedroom and living room in one room, but with the separation: for this screen, wardrobe, rack with flowers or even large aquarium.
Use visual methods of increasing the space through which the room will seem bigger and cozier. Decorate the entire apartment in similar colors, use only light and warm shades of favorite colors. Engage the mirror – they are the best assistants in the visual extension of the bathroom. Think about lighting – avoid too dark areas, preferring quiet, bright light. Finally, choose simple furniture, for example, from AltaModa, Alias or Forni mobili, and don't overdo the accessories – the scope will give you so welcome the feeling of a large area.
