Indeed, the challenge is to connect two functionally different rooms in the same room. Typically, the owners create a common kitchen-living area in an apartment consisting of only one room, thus expanding the available space. And in most cases the result of such transformations is a stylish room. See for yourself.
Lower furniture in the living room indicates that this area is designed for recreation. In contrast, kitchen chairs and tables are much higher - visually they hint at their working purpose. In such a project it is important to provide for the nuances of lighting.
All fixtures, lamps and other devices should form a single integrated system. In order not to clutter up space, it is best to use light hanging lights. Such transformations greatly simplify the life of the owners. It is impossible to lead an old way of life in a new apartment.
And how has the redevelopment changed your life?
