A few years ago there were apartments with lots of luxury elements. Pompousniness was erected into the framework of the ideal. But now they come to replace new styles that are similar to minimalism.
One of them is considered “Loft”. You need to think about how can you create comfortable conditions for bare walls or visible wires. In the modern world, these ensembles are gaining popularity due to their variability and not the most difficult repair process.
A little about style
Loft is a foreign word, in translating means “attic”. Decor in this direction, as a rule, no. On the walls – plaster, and the floor is composed of simple boards.
Most often, the design in the style of Loft is used in apartments with huge squares and high ceilings. But if you wish, you can use this style or its elements and in a one-room apartment. After all, this style often implies Lack of walls and partitions.
The basis of this stylistic direction can be considered:
- mixing different solutions;
- Openness planning;
- lack of partitions;
- All communications in plain type – pipes, ventilation, wires, also visible brickwork;
- The combination of old and new in both furniture and decor;
- The ability to apply non-wall and graffiti ceiling, also using posters as decor element.
Loft style implies the presence of natural materials. For example, it can be glass, bricks, wood, even metal is permissible and leave it in an open form. Loft – style that allows you to experiment.
The zonal separation of space is produced by separating the room not by partitions, but shades of the main color. Also uses a lighting game to highlight various zones. Less often you can meet glass partitions. They do not disturb the concept of the whole room, but still create frames for furniture and decor elements.
Application in one-room apartment
There is a huge number of ready-made projects for room design and apartments. A huge number of designer agencies are ready to help you in creating an interior. However, it is possible to competently organize work on creating a beautiful apartment.
At the very beginning of work It is necessary to determine the borders of the room with a corridor and a bathroom. It is often possible to divide the walls only a bathroom, and the hallway from the rest can separate the wardrobe. In any case, it turns out a huge space filled with fresh air and natural light.
Furniture is used in such an apartment not only for direct purpose, but also for separation of space. This is the hallmark of Loft style. In the furniture will be excellent The combination of “Laksheri” and old retro style furniture.
Often a problematic question may be the storage of a large number of things, because storage rooms in such apartments are not provided. In this case, it is best to use a large wardrobe, which will split the space on the zone. Also for storage is suitable for a TV under TV.
The kitchen is usually separated from the room with a bar counter – this is the most common option. This space in such an apartment can perform both its main function, as well as the function of the living room (if there is a table with four chairs). On the inner wall of such a kitchen there is a whole kitchen set.
Walls are often specifically done as if unfinished. Often, brickwork or wallpapers are used. Also special flavoring in such design have naked plastered walls. Such a view first seems uncomfortable, but a feeling of a completed picture is created when furnished.
Especially effectively look such walls if they cause graffiti. Also this style is suitable for poster lovers.
In addition, in the direction of “Loft”, the details in abstraction design are perfect. Even road signs and signs can be used as decor elements.
A special case can be in a room with a small square, but high ceilings. With the height of the ceilings of 4 m, you can create a separate zone for sleep, equipping the room with a staircase and the second floor within one apartment.
The light should be natural, because the windows area should be big. But at the same time it is necessary to take into account that at night it will take artificial lighting of this single space. It is often used by one large chandelier in the center of the room, but with this location of the light source, the angles of the room will be poorly illuminated.
An interesting option can serve small light sources scattered throughout the ceiling. They should be selected for the overall style of the room. Less often used wall lamps. Most often they are installed in the kitchen zone.
