Interior of a small house - zoning and functional furniture

Wicker chairs and a table by the window

It is difficult to imagine a person who does not want to live in a comfortable, cozy house or apartment, where everything is necessary for proper rest. If for owners of spacious housing everything is decided by the availability of free time and finance for its arrangement, then the interior of a small house requires great effort, attention and imagination. Fortunately, there is no need to invent something radically new. After all, with the problem of a small, and sometimes frankly close home, many people are confronted. Consider the most popular ways out of this situation.

Attention, it is very important that the bed is not only present, but on it it was really possible to rest, while someone else is in the room. This is facilitated by the refusal of the TV, as well as sources of bright light near the bed.

If the living room is integrated with the kitchen, then it makes sense to abandon a large dining table in favor of a magazine. Furniture should also not be cumbersome. The best solution is a small sofa (perhaps corner) and several armchairs, chairs or ottomans. They fit well into any layout and do not take up much space.

The combination of white and brown furniture in the living room


The design of a small country house usually does not provide for a separate spacious room that can be used as a bedroom. There are several interior options that will be a way out:

  • confine to a narrow sofa in the living room;
  • put in a small room a bed that will occupy almost the whole of its area;
  • to equip a sleeping place in the attic under the roof of the house.

In order to implement the last project you need to loosen the attic of all things, insulate the inside of the roof and remove part of the attic floor. After this, you need to install a reliable staircase and the bed itself. Its function can perform a hard mattress. Then it remains only to place a lamp near the bed and shelves for the necessary things: books, phone, comb.

The area of ​​even the smallest country house usually allows you to place a sitting bath or shower. This is not the best solution in terms of comfort, but it is conditioned by necessity. Household chemicals and washing powder can be placed under the bathroom or in the locker. On the shelves there is a place for shampoo, shower gel, soap, toothpaste.

In such a small room, you should actively use walls. On them it is necessary to fix hooks for sponges, towels, dressing gowns. The same devices can be placed on the inside surface of the door. Before proceeding to this, it is necessary to assess the quality of the door and the load, which it does not hurt. No need to save on a good rug, because with a small size of the bathroom, spraying water on the floor is almost inevitable. It is better to purchase several silicone or rubber mats than spend money on repairing floors and getting rid of mold.

Workplace equipment

The realities of modern life are such that an average person does not often leave work outside the walls of his home. Many take part of the work at home, give it a weekend or part of the vacation, someone is working remotely or just enjoys watching the news while sitting at a stationary computer. In this case, you can not do without a kind of working office on the territory of a country house. A small desk for papers and a comfortable chair perfectly fit into the interior of a small house, but you need to find a place for this furniture. They usually become part of a bedroom or living room.

Zoning in the interior of a small house

Often the whole area of ​​a small house is represented by only one room.

This is best facilitated by the installation of one or two racks, or thin partitions. It will allow you to visually divide the room into several rooms. In addition, the shelves will be an additional storage place for necessary things: books, dishes, bedding. And putting on them vases, statues or candles can decorate the room.

Living room and dining room in one room

Another solution is to establish a podium with a bed in the niche of the wall. And placing a sleeping place under the ceiling will allow you to free space for a wardrobe, closet, work table, extra chair or play area for children. Zoning a country house can also be facilitated by tiles on the kitchen wall, carpets for the bedroom or living room, repeating the shade of furniture, spectacular curtains.

General style of the interior of a small house

With a limited area of ​​housing it is especially important that his style is harmonious. If there is only one room in the house, delimited into several zones, then all furniture should be combined. You can install ready-made kits or choose the right things for yourself. In the design of a small house, small furniture in light colors will fit in successfully.

  • give preference to several, well-blended colors or shades;
  • if possible, leave the walls open, without hanging them with variegated carpets and numerous paintings.

Sofa and table with a computer by the window


With insufficient amount of light, any room seems tight, uncomfortable and littered. Therefore, the interior of a small country house provides good lighting. This is facilitated by windows with curtains or light curtains, lamps, floor lamps, table lamps built into the ceiling and walls.

There must be several sources of light, this is necessary for the competent division of space into functional zones. The bedroom design provides for the presence of a main luminaire and one or two additional ones. If it is combined with the living room, then you can limit the nightlight at the head of the bed. For the interior of a small living room, there is an indispensable lamp that fits into the style of the room. It will complete the main light source - a chandelier in the center of the ceiling. The kitchen can use the lighting on the bottom of the hanging cabinets.
