No matter how many people have changed to apartments, Khrushchevka remains a very common type of housing. It is involved in it to adapt. As practice shows and this space with all the mass of its flaws can be made quite comfortable and stylish.
“Khrushchevki” have a whole set of planning features that make it difficult to accommodate such a housing. Architectural design of the era of Khrushchev envisaged small rooms, and close kitchens, and narrow corridors, and combined bathrooms, and low ceilings. All this went to the inheritance to a modern person for whom to accommodate in such an apartment, may be insufficiently repaired in a budgetary version. Sometimes modernization is needed, far overlooking the level of economy.
The problem of “Khrushchev” are the features of the organization of residential space. The apartment can be both three-room, and a four-room, but one of the rooms through the passing, and therefore already loses in its functionality. Living room at the same time can be someone’s bedroom. And the passing bedroom is no longer a bedroom.
Therefore, sometimes the only option to improve the quality of space – redevelopment. In Khrushchev, carriers – external walls. The inner partitions are not, there are space for transformation. Another thing is that such measures require consultations with architects and approval in relevant services.
Demolition of the walls and the union of the premises sometimes creates new problems. Therefore, do not fall in extremes. The same bathroom should remain in his place. In the case of municipal trouble in the new bathroom with the flow of toilet, for example, you can flood the living room from the bottom.
Unpleasant consequences leads to the union of the room with a kitchen. On such redevelopment, as a rule, the owners of a one-room or two-bedroom apartment are solved, where it is very close. With this union, the space becomes more, but the room walks the couple from cooking, and the fat stains sooner or later get to the places outside the former kitchen. Walls and furniture living room are impregnated with eating smells.
Sensations of space can be achieved without breaking and transferring something:
- Choosing wallpapers, it is better to prefer the canvas with a small pattern. Such ornaments are visually expanding the space and make it obscure.
- From screaming paints and dynamic drawings it is better to refuse. If I want to be some accent in the room, it is better to distinguish with a bright color a certain functional zone.
- The rest of the walls should stay in calm colors.
- Doors between adjacent rooms it is preferable to arrange in the form of folding screen. Due to this, you can combine spaces, do not deprive them of functionality.
- When placing rooms, do not allow styles in each of them. Otherwise you will get a feeling of chaos. Purchase in such an apartment will not be felt.
