15 kV. M. – A fairly common part of the room for homes “Khrushchev” building. In precious meters, you can equip the living room, bedroom, or children’s, if you have a two-bedroom apartment, or combine all the functional areas, if you have a studio apartment.
It is important to remember that not all styles will be appropriate to look at a small space. But do not despair – this article will convince you that 15 kV. M. enough to create a modern and spectacular design.
In any case, whether professional designer will work, or by design and repair you will be engaged in yourself, before the start of the work you need to create a project.
The project needs to be taken into account:
- the area and shape of the room;
- number of windows, presence / absence of a balcony;
- the location of heat and water supply;
- The need to create children.
The project can be drawn on paper (millimeter paper is suitable for this purpose), or do it using computer programs. The creation of the project will help determine the cost of finishing materials suitable furniture dimensions.
The shape of the rooms can be square and rectangular, you can easily meet options with beveled corners.
Square room – the placement of the right form, so designers love to work with it – all sorts of zoning methods are suitable for such an apartment, you can “try on almost any interior to it. But more often the rooms are elongated, which creates certain difficulties in the design.
The main task when creating the interior of such a room is an optical expansion of the room, turn it from the “crack” in a convenient space. For this purpose, the emphasis painting of walls can be used, the use of strips – the horizontal band visually makes the space more, but at the same time the ceiling seems below. The wider stripes, the lower the room seems. The vertical strip visually makes the room more elongated, and the ceilings above.
- The vertical strip is prohibited if the height of the room is greater than its width.
- It is important to take into account the side of the room windows: if the windows come out on the sunny side, it is possible to use light gray, turquoise, blue – such colors will be changed in the hot season; If on the shadow – use warm tones: beige, peach and others.
- If you carry out work on pre-insulation of the balcony, it can also be turned into a working space – an office study, a dining area or a dressing room.
Ideas for one-room apartment
If the living area of your apartment is 15 kV. M., Modern designers offer to look at the studio apartment creation option. The first such apartments appeared in Europe at the beginning of the last century, and so far have gained popularity in our country.
Their main feature is the complete absence of inner partitions, a separate room is only a bathroom. TO
Room, kitchen and hallway merge into a single harmonious space.
Using various zoning methods, the functional zones are highlighted in the room.
It can be use:
- furniture items (racks);
- architectural structures (podiums, arches);
- of different sexual coating (carpets, the implementation of different colors, respectively, zone);
- Right light accents.
All these ways can be combined with each other to get interesting and bright solutions.
Select those function zones that you need. Someone works at home, so it is important to equip a full-fledged workplace; For other house – this is a resting place, it is important to equip a comfortable sleeping place.
As a workplace, you can use a wide window sill, placing cabinets under it with nominating boxes. If you remove office supplies and a computer, lay on the windowsill mattress and throw pillows, you will have a cozy place to read.
Install the sconce or place desktop lamps for comfortable work.
To highlight the living area, you can use outdoor elements: use the color laminate, different from the fact that they put in the bedroom and the kitchen.
Help the guest area will help and furniture items – a sofa, delivered by the “back” to the bar stand or to the desk, clearly distinguishes the area for recreation and the kitchen area / work office.
Sometimes people cannot refuse a full-fledged bedroom in favor of transformer sofas even with limited space. As well as with a sofa for guests, preferably placement of the bed as far as possible from the entrance door.
To create a sense of privacy hide a bedroom from prying eyes with a glass wall, screen or shelving. Use more muted lighting compared to the guest area, bed soft carpet.
note! When creating a project, keep in mind that redevelopment must be agreed with government agencies. Demolition of bearing walls is prohibited.
If you decide to combine the kitchen and room, do not save on the exhaust.
Ideas for two-, three-bedroom apartment
As mentioned above, first of all it is necessary to create a project plan, given all the features of the room and your wishes.
When planning a design, it is important to consider the functionality of the room – whether it will be used to receive guests or for family households of household after the working day. Based on this, the choice of primary color and furniture equipment.
If the living room is a place to collect guests, the room must be framed in bright, dynamic colors – yellow, orange, red. It is not necessary to use these colors as the main – enough to paint one wall in a contrast color.
If the placement of the rectangular shape, the accent must be one of the short walls.
In addition to making the dynamics, such painting will help smooth the disproportionateness of the rectangular room, make a wall visually more close to square.
If the living room is a place for collecting households, choose more calm tones. Contrast staining here is also appropriate, but the choice must be made in favor of a shade close to the main shade of the walls.
You can select the zone to view the TV, the fireplace area (with a shortage of space and a big desire, you can use Falkintimin).
When choosing furniture, consider its functionality. If you often have guests, take a look at the transformer sofa version, which will also allow you to organize an additional storage space. Sleeping if possible place away from the entrance, so as not to disturb the sleeping.
The living room often has a working area. A good accommodation option will be space near the window, closer to natural lighting. All zoning methods can be used to highlight this zone: Separate the office with a rack, glass wall or contrasting; Install additional light sources.
An interesting option is the location of the working office in the closet: in a closed form it is an ordinary view of the cabinet, but behind its doors can be located both a computer table and a large working surface for creativity and needlework.
Often you have to combine living room and with the bedroom, if the other room serves as a children’s. To separate the bedroom, use the same ways that were considered for the studio apartment.
Usually in Khrushchev room with an area of 15 kV. M. give under the living room, but if the holiday is decisive for you it is a vacation, you can use a large bedroom room.
Choose the corner models – this is the most compact option when saving the capacity, or place it behind the mirror – this will help not only assess your image in full growth, but also visually enlarge the room.
In the bedroom you can place a dressing room.
Near the window is best located the working area, and next to the window opening, install racks with all the necessary accessories for work. If the workplace is not assumed, then near the window can be placed a dressing table
Do not forget about the choice of the right lighting – in the bedroom the light should be inadequate, scattered, as much as possible to rest, and for lovers read in bed important will be the placement of additional light sources near the bed – this can be as desktop lights placed on the bedside tables, So floor lamps.
The bed is better to arrange the headboard to the wall without windows and doors, and in front of it you can arrange a small chest, attach a TV on the wall.
First choose the style on the basis of your lifestyle and preferences, because it is for you to live in this interior. Listen to yourself and households.
But when choosing a style, it is worth proceeding not only from your desires, but also the features of the visual assessment of a small space. So, for example, the classic style of design involves the use of massive furniture, abundance of decorative elements and stucco. All these elements will negatively affect the space of the room, will make it visually even less.
It is undesirable to combine several styles in a small space – none of them can reveal completely under the condition of a limited area, which will eventually lead to a chaotic pinch of furniture items, maybe beautiful, but failing to show it; maybe bright but leaving the background of other objects.
It is worth using styles that distinguish the features of which is simplicity, clarity lines and lack of a lush decor:
- high tech;
- Scandinavian style.
If you are confused by the restraint of these styles, bring bright accents – it may be paintings-posters, bright pillows, memorable souvenirs. The number of such items should not be large, you need to keep free space.
Of course, it seems an unthinkable task to equip your apartment for all the rules and canons, especially if behind the shoulders of experience – zero. But believe me, the result is worth. Do not be afraid to create, create!
I would finish the quotation of the American architect Daniel Hudson Bernema: “Do not think of minor projects. They are not enough magic to get blood, so they will most likely not be implemented. “.
