A home, whether large or small, should be as comfortable as possible for the people living in it. But what if you had to design a home with all sorts of amenities and very little space? Designing an efficient layout and distributing all the necessary features of a few square meters home is a major challenge for all designers / architects. The small apartment is often used as inspiration for designing larger spaces. The compact layout ideas used in the design of small apartments can offer a variety of creative ways to utilize space for smaller rooms or specific uses within a larger area.
Effective use of a creative multifaceted interior can greatly help to use the limited floor plans in these small apartments. Lofted layouts can save a lot of space in a small space. By adding a raised bed, the living room can be expanded and the space under the loft can be used for storage or any other purpose. The use of concealed storage and embedding of multi-purpose furniture can also solve many storage and space problems.
However, a small apartment construction needs to be planned interior design. Sometimes, well-lit and bright interiors can make even a small apartment look spacious. Alternatively, embracing a darker theme and lofted layout can also help achieve the same goal. The apartment shown here was designed by Andrew and Alain Timonina. It is a compact apartment with only 29 square meters of space, giving a studio independence as well as the integrity of a divided home. Separate living, kitchen and bedroom areas are provided with the help of smart space distribution techniques.
Soft low-furniture living room
The soft low furniture and the large glass window with white curtains make the room appear vertically higher and give a feeling of openness. The simple white interior makes the area look bright and happy. The cerulean blue mat and terracotta accents add a splash of color to the simple white interior.
The beautiful geometric pendants in the far left corner bring the room to life and create interesting wall decor. The room can also serve as a place to entertain friends or family.
Minimalist home office
Having an office or a room for work does not require you to have a large house. The office area opposite the living room uses the minimalist method. It has an open shelving system to display artwork or achievements and alternatively store useful items such as books and office supplies. By placing the TV in this area, the owner can use this place to relax after a long day.
Open Space Bed
The bedroom is the focus of this design and therefore it is made to stand out with its wooden veneer in the middle of a completely white interior. The design is spacious and comfortable. A small shelf above the bed provides extra space for holding small items for regular use. White ceiling lights as well as wall mounted scones provide plenty of light for a night reading.
Small kitchen with bright white theme
The kitchen has a kitchen layout to make better use of the limited space. One side of the layout serves as a dining area with microwave, stove and sink. The other side serves as a storage area with a counter top for serving and other needs.
To counteract its windowless placement, plenty of integrated lamps have been provided on both sides of the layout. The bright white theme contrasts with strong gray lines and highlights the kitchen layout on both sides.
Comfortable sitting bench at entrance
The view from the entrance hallway emphasizes the wooden and white theme of the house with a wooden panel on one side and white cabins on the other. Ceiling lights help maintain the cheerful atmosphere created by the white interior.
The main entrance is a comfortable bench with space for shoes and other storage underneath. The cute but elegant suspension brackets with round sticks give the otherwise simple interior an elegant look.
Pattern washer on the bathroom wall
Patterned tiles add more charm to your bathroom décor than regular ones. The bathroom floor provides a separate space for toilet and shower. A sliding door easily hides the shelf above the toilet. Other storage solutions include an open shelf above an extendable drawer that is expertly tucked under the vanity to save space.
The separate shower cubicle also has a minimalist setting. In addition to ceiling-mounted lamps, the designer has also provided Edison-inspired incandescent lamps above the vanity for decorative effect.
