The design of the apartment is 60 sq. m - redevelopment and interior decoration
Agree that often buying an apartment from most of us is associated with future repairs in it. And if roughing and facing works do not bring “torment of creativity”, then planning the future interior takes almost the “lion” share of time and thoughts. Let's look at what the design of an apartment of 60 square meters can be. m, to which special attention should be paid when choosing it.
It is good if the layout of the housing fully meets your requirements and you do not have to change anything, but there are times when a redevelopment is necessary. First of all, this applies to families with children (to make a 2-room apartment from a one-room apartment) who need a separate room, or when the rooms of the apartment have small dimensions.
There are several options for redevelopment in the room:
- partial demolition of the walls, due to which the living area increases. For example, having demolished a partition between the kitchen and the living room, you will achieve a visual expansion of both rooms. The same effect can be achieved by combining the hall and the hallway. However, it is worth remembering that only non-bearing walls can be demolished, otherwise the consequences can be negative;
- the construction of additional interior partitions. Such redevelopment will increase the number of rooms in the apartment, while making a two-room full three-room apartment;
- increase in area due to a loggia, a balcony. If the first two options do not suit you, pay attention to the balcony or loggia. By warming and combining them with the bedroom, you get a workplace or a corner for relaxation. When connecting the hall and the loggia (balcony), a large room is obtained, which is easy to divide into zones (work, rest, play).
Please note that all changes in the apartment that relate to the demolition or construction of new walls must be registered with the Bureau of Technical Inventory (BTI)!
We equip a two-room apartment
Design one-bedroom apartment of 60 square meters. should be developed based on several factors:
- how many people will live;
- allocated budget.
If the family will live in the apartment with one child (several children) it will be more rational to allocate one room for the nursery, and the second will be a combined bedroom for parents and a living room. The interior of the rooms is best designed in different colors, while adding similar elements: chandeliers or lamps, the same fabric for textiles, picture frames (wall paintings), a single floor covering for both rooms. This approach will make the design of the apartment complete. Combining the kitchen with one of the rooms will create a single space. If you are confused by the fact that the bed will be visible to guests, simply separate it with a sliding partition or a partition - a shelf, and the problem will be solved.
If parents do not agree to give their bedroom to a common room, the solution will be a combined balcony and kitchen. So you increase the area of the latter and you can create a full-fledged corner for receiving guests.
For couples without children or one tenant, one room is allocated under the bedroom, the second for receiving guests.
If you have 3 rooms
Designing an apartment consisting of 3 rooms is difficult and difficult to create at the same time, since the area of the room is quite large, so it is possible to implement any projects, but it is problematic to combine all the rooms into one whole composition.
The main thing that should be taken into account when developing a design project is that each room can have its own style, which should be in harmony with each other. There should be a clear distribution of zones: recreation, work, and games. Try not to overload the space, use modern multifunctional furniture.
Since there are a lot of rooms, it is possible to distinguish separate rooms for the parents' bedroom and the nursery, taking into account the wishes of the owners, but to arrange the overall together. Due to the large area, the balcony (loggia) can remain a separate room, but have its own individual character.
Choose a style, color palette
If everything is clear with the general vision of the apartment and possible redevelopment, the choice of style and color solutions sometimes confuses the owners.
Among the many stylistic directions, for apartments of 60 square meters. m. distinguish the following:
- modern. The main highlight of such interiors is simplicity and minimalism. They belong to modern styles: eco-design, hi-tech, minimalism, Scandinavian and European. Monochrome shades with rich color accents, straight, strict lines of furniture sets, maximum space in the room - these are the main nuances of modern styles;
- ethnic. A characteristic feature of ethno-design are accessories related to certain peoples and cultures. For example, a room in the African style is the obligatory presence of all kinds of masks, skins of exotic animals, animal prints, in Chinese - the predominance of red shades, gold elements, wall paintings with hieroglyphs, specific traditional figures;
- classic or traditional. The luxury, grace inherent in the castles of aristocrats and kings - these are the main characteristics of the classical style. It includes: the Venetian style, classicism, baroque and empire. A room in one of the styles will always stand out from the rest with rich accessories, furniture, textiles, but without pretentiousness. As for the color scheme, warm pastel tones prevail here, and with the help of saturated shades of textiles they create a complete composition.
Living room or guest room
Under the living room, they often choose the room with the largest area, since it is in it that the whole family will gather in the evenings, make friends, relatives.
Note that the design of the living room, first of all, depends on what function it will perform, whether it will not simultaneously be a sleeping place for one of the family members.
Consider the case when you have a two-in-one living room - a living room - a bedroom. If the dimensions of the room allow, the sleeping place can be separated from the total area. For this, a sliding partition is often mounted, or a drywall with mirror inserts or one large mirror is built. A wooden shelf under the ceiling with a variety of small things, books, fresh flowers will also look beautiful.
Your main task is not to overload the space, while placing in the room all the necessary furniture (sofa, armchairs, ottomans), household appliances, and if necessary, a dining table. If possible, place furniture along the walls, leaving the center free.
If you plan to combine the living room with the kitchen, install a bar on the border between them. She will visually separate the rooms without overloading them.
In the case of combining the hall with the hallway, a decorative partition that acts as a wall, as well as different floor coverings, will look beautiful.
Everything regarding the shades of walls, floor, choose based on the chosen style.
The kitchen is the most visited place in the apartment, so it is worth approaching its design responsibly, achieving harmony between wall decoration and flooring with kitchen furniture and household appliances. Designers advise:
- Do not use more than three colors;
- floor and ceiling should not be in the same tone;
- play in contrast. If the kitchen wall is light, add color to the upholstery of furniture, curtains, paint the walls in a bright color. The same principle is the opposite. If the cuisine is rich, then everything else is discreet.
The main factor in choosing a design for the kitchen is the number of people in the family, since it is he who will determine the area reserved for the dining table. If the family is large, it is advisable to place the kitchen set along the walls, and leave the center for the table. If the family is small, the best choice is a kitchen corner, leaving the center free. If possible, use the space under the window, the work surface located in this place will make it possible to place more kitchen furniture around the perimeter of the kitchen.
Choose a color scheme based on the area of the kitchen. Remember that dark shades visually reduce the room, and light shades - vice versa. If you want to add heights - draw vertical stripes, expand the space - add a horizontal ornament on the walls. Best combined with each other: white with blue, black and red; base gray with dark pink, purple, red; yellow with purple, blue, black, gray. Black is an elegant and versatile color that combines with all shades.
Note that under the bedroom there is a room that is located as far away from the front door as possible, this will provide maximum comfort during relaxation.
For wall decoration, choose warm, muted shades that allow you to relax and your bedroom will not only seem larger, but also more comfortable. Bright accents are acceptable, but it is better to place them on the wall behind the head of the bed.
The amount of furniture is minimal: a bed, bedside tables, a wardrobe, a dressing table with a dressing table. Do not want the standard (wooden) versions of bedside tables, place small glass tables near the bed. A wardrobe with mirrored doors adds volume and light.
As regards textiles, it is more rational to hang a window with transparent curtains in combination with blackout curtains. So you can adjust the brightness of the bedroom. Bright decorative pillows will dilute the pastel walls, choose a carpet to match their colors and get a complete set.
The highlight in the design of the room will add the original ceiling structure with drywall, or similar on one of the walls.
Equip the nursery
The design of the children's room should be selected solely according to the wishes and gender of the child who will live in it. Adults can only gently guide the child.
A room for a girl, regardless of the age of the hostess, should be as bright and comfortable as possible. The color scheme is better to choose in warm colors, making bright accents in several places. A prerequisite for any children's interior is the zoning of the room and the maximum functionality of the furniture. Be sure to think over not only the ceiling lighting, but also several local points, for greater comfort in the room. The style of the girl’s room will grow with the hostess, for younger age “magic designs” are characteristic. But for a teenage girl, Art Nouveau, high-tech, minimalism, country, Provence are more suitable.
The design in the boy’s room differs only in stylistic nuances, all other conditions are similar - functionality, zoning, lighting. Choose "sea voyage", "the beauty of the starry sky", "we play together with the characters of your favorite cartoons", but remember that the walls are better to be dimmed, it is better to dilute the interior with stylistic accessories.
In a room where two heterosexual children live, it is best to conditionally divide the room into two parts and make each one a small corner.
The entrance hall is the first one who meets guests in your house and gives an understanding of your apartment, therefore, its design also needs to be approached meaningfully.
The first thing that designers recommend abandoning is the dark shades in the decoration. Choose a practical, but light finishing material for the walls, and you will see how the room will radically change.
An important aspect of the hallway interior is lighting. In addition to the main lamp, place point a few lamps, they will add coziness. Place a large mirror in the original frame, it will also add lightness and depth to the room.
Second, the maximum functionality of the furniture. Built-in wardrobe - a compartment will accommodate the upper things and shoes, and mirrored doors will add volume. An alternative way is an open hanger and a small nightstand for shoes. You can also trim part of the wall with light skin, fasten the hooks for clothes - get the original hanger.
Pay special attention to flooring. Near the door it is better to put tiles (3-4 rows), and then it is quite possible to mount the laminate. If you have a combined entrance hall, this will allow you to separate it from another room.
Design of a bathroom and a bathroom
Although the bathroom is not the most visited place in the apartment, it is necessary to approach the selection of design for it as carefully as for other rooms. The main criterion that you need to rely on during the design of the bathroom is a small area. Even if you have a combined bathroom and it seems to you that there is enough space, abandon the interior from dark tones, this is the prerogative of large bathrooms. Choose cladding materials in bright but not flashy tones. The combination of several color shades will visually expand the room.
To visually increase the height of the ceiling, use one design trick - make several vertical rows of tiles, darker than the main tone. Another win-win option would be large mirrors.
If you are not comfortable with the idea of a visible toilet, but you have no other choice, try to disguise it. The white toilet on the background of the white walls will not be visible, or separate it from the main room with a low partition to match the walls, and it will not "catch your eye".
As for stylistic trends, the most commonly used for the bathroom are: modern, high-tech, classics, Japanese minimalism, marine themes.
As you can see, the apartment is 60 square meters. - This is a sea of opportunities and options on the topic of design. Choose your option and comfort for you!
