It handed down the basic categories on virtually any living space.
We dwell on the nuances thatare relevant even for owners of a spacious apartment - bedroom. Discuss options for redevelopment, especially styling several spaces and how to combine a storyline so different in purpose room.
options for redevelopment
Of course, all apartments are different. And one universal advice for all one can hardly do without. Nevertheless, we are building on the experience and knowledge of planning and variations bedroom apartments, we have tried to highlight a few points to think about. Perhaps some of them actually help you and prompt high-quality ideas for improving your living space.
Disposition - the most important stage of the design. It is the location of the walls - the one substance that the most difficult to change and facelift there is no longer enough. So give it due attention and answer for yourself the following questions.
Did you accidentally missed this idea in mind, and it will now be an opportune moment:
Is it possible in this apartment at all any redevelopment?
Before starting repair and demolition of any wallsyou definitely need to understand what the walls in the apartment carrying, and what - no. The iron rule - the integrity of supporting structures can not be changed, which means - not to demolish or cut in the monolith niche or make thinner walls themselves - any manipulations which damage the strength, is strictly prohibited, and the consequences of non-compliance with these instructions and the emergency condition of the house can cause damage human health, life and financial status. With conventional partitions can act at their own discretion - to demolish the old and build new ones anywhere in the apartment.
Do you need a large hall and corridor?
Most two-bedroom apartments in the corridor areaand the hall together can be up to 10 m2. This area is exclusively communicating and often no functionality, except for the hallway corner, is not responsible.
Try to think about whether we can somehow pay for the benefit of themselves these precious square footage. As an option:
a) to carry the partition and combine the hallway and the living room;
b) at the expense of the corridor or hallway bathroom to increase;
c) in certain parts of the layout, you can make the hall closet, build one or more walls.
Are you ready to connect the kitchen and the living room to the studio?
This version of redevelopment has its advantages and disadvantages:
Pros - space becomes visually morethere is an opportunity for the whole family to spend more time together, to arrange the bar, kitchen island or simply to increase the number of seats the dining table during the reception.
Sometimes it is possible to change the assignment of roomsplaces and, for example, from the former to make a spacious bedroom studio and on-site kitchen - living room. The apartment is in fact the result is no longer the two- and three-room. But here, of course, important to a good location and sewage duct.
Cons - the smell of food in the living room while cooking,common space reduces the likelihood of privacy in an apartment, this is especially noticeable, for example, if you personally come to visit a friend / girlfriend and your spouse have nowhere else to "hide" other than bedrooms. Guest bedroom place, too, is likely to be in the living room (sofa bed), and during the visit relatives awkward breakfast, for example, when someone is still sleeping.
Decide what is most important to you and basically, what you can donate and what to refuse can not be - it will tell you the most suitable option.
Do you need two bathrooms?
Modern two-bedroom apartments are often built withtwo bathrooms. Judge as you need both - a separate bathroom for the guests and for the residents of apartment, although sometimes they are divided into male / female or adult / child. If necessary, leave as is - although also can experiment with the size of bathrooms themselves, reducing the one that seems to be too big or increased tight.
Do you have solved the issue of storage?
A detailed analysis is required to planThink about where you store things and clothes. Perhaps the pantry is increasing - often making them disproportionately small. Of course, to do so at the expense of the living rooms is not very desirable, but it is best bedroom on two square meters less, but accurate than the large room, which does not have its place things scattered here and there.
Pay attention also to the dressing room or the areafor the cabinet. Think about the things of all members of the family, out-of-season and outer clothing, bed linens and stuff. All this needs a place, so be realistic and plan an adequate size of a closet, closet and dressing room.
Here we just show the most bezproigryshnyetrends in the design of two-bedroom apartments, and you already decide - to follow them or go against. These proposals concern the unity of style, so the main task is handling the entire space into a single entity - the room seemed to "flow" into each other. It gives a sense of integrity and even enlarges the area. While the once very popular "in this room I Egypt, and in this - Japan" and things like that rather looks clumsy.
What ideas or style decisions should be in a two-bedroom apartment?
One bedroom apartment - one idea. This does not mean that all rooms should be made a blueprint. But the stylistic decision should be exactly the same. And even children's rooms and bathrooms can be designed accordingly. It is difficult to talk about any one style - in fact the eclecticism at the height of popularity, and it is a mixture of classic, modern and national colors around the world really looks great.
But if you combine it in all rooms: eclecticism in the living room and eclecticism in the bedroom, not in the living room - traditional English classics, and in the bedroom - modern style and furniture from the Ikea store.
If you like the rectangular shape, it is necessarysupport everywhere - in the form of furniture, in the construction of furniture, and mounted in the ceiling. The same applies to the rounded shape or bionic. If you like this approach, let it be traced in all the rooms.
Are baseboards, moldings, window sills to be the same in every room?
We recommend to apply a single style for ceilingbaguettes and skirting boards. Sills is better to be made of the same material, although the color and texture may vary. This rule is also intended unites different spaces - the baseboards and moldings flow from one room to another, visually connecting the space between them.
What rules govern the choice of colors in a two-bedroom apartment?
The color scheme - like saturation orbrightness. Currently, the most relevant white, light gray, beige and yellow, as well as all sorts of options and combinations with other colors. It is important to understand - use absolutely any color, but the tone should also be right. It is absurd to look deep burgundy and gray concrete, and next - neon pink and pungent. Or in the same room a gentle mint color purple and the caller, but the same color in its "bleached" variation - more like the lavender, looked would be much better.
The design of the furniture and decor
Do not buy kits and headsets;
Now it looks too primitive methodPrepared samples purchase the exact same performance on furniture that will fill the whole room. Much more interesting to look correct and accurate combination suitable to each other, but different in shape or color of products. The different collections, or even from different manufacturers recommended to buy chairs and sofa, ceiling and chandelier pendants, a dining table and chairs, beds and bedside tables.
Use your sense of humor;
Well, if the interior is positive. We are not saying that it should be childish, kitschy or too bright. But do not deny yourself the pleasure to use a truly valuable and exclusive things - those which would be difficult to find elsewhere. It can be bright colors chair in black and white living room mural on a sofa with a picture octopus chandelier resembling shapeless plasticine figure or table on a stand as if from the books.
There are colorful shops, where you want togo with the aim to buy just one item for the interior, and this will be enough. But he will bring his special personality, which is so necessary for each house. If the Council has caused the rejection of you, just remember it, and next time, flipping through pictures the interior, peered into the ones you seem to be the best - you are sure to find a confirmation of this thesis - it is inevitable for the whole space.
The design of two-bedroom apartments - a complex andimportant task in the planning stage. Here you need to be consistent and very attentive. The transition to the stage of selection of materials, try to include everything easily, and then ease it necessarily will bear fruit. The result will be even better than you expected that. Take care of your nerves, time and did not attach too much importance to the fact that this is not necessary.
