In apartments with small squares, the value is acquired literally every centimeter of the precious area. In connection with this, it is often irrational to install additional walls. But for many of us it is important to have a little place of our own for privacy (rest, read or work, close the bedroom from the eyes of the guests, etc.).
We offer you the ten most common methods in the design of small-sized housing. Of course, you can always find negative and positive sides, so before you get to work, find out more information.
№ 1: Ширма
It does not take up much space either in a straightened or folded state, and in size it does not go in comparison with a wall. There are many kinds, from various materials, with drawings and ornaments, as well as with rollers, which allow you to move it as necessary in different parts of the room. The design can be completely weightless from papyrus paper or bamboo, or very massive metal or wood.
№ 2: Different wallpapers
The method is not only effective, interesting, but also economical. If you have a roll of cover left from the last repair, or even less, then you can decorate one of the vertical surfaces or part of it. This will create a certain boundary. Combine solid wallpaper with those that have an interesting drawing, floral or ethnic ornament, etc. and do not forget to endure everything in contrast.
No. 3: Roomy rack
Let this piece of furniture be large and occupy the area from floor to ceiling, but at the same time not more than 50 cm wide. The embodiment can be anything. Whether the rack is open and easily passes light, partially closed with beautiful doors or drawers, or mounted on both sides of the door - it's up to you. Each individual living space requires an individual approach.
№ 4: Podium
If the area across the horizon is very limited or you do not want to install screens and partitions, then go to the vertical plane of the room. The floor of different heights will help you to organize a special podium, for example, for a bed or kitchen. The main advantage of this approach is an additional storage space.
№ 5: Ниша
By its nature and incarnations, the idea is simply amazing, allowing you to create a unique design. In a niche, it is best to place a bedroom or a workplace. The project with a window in it is doubly interesting, the place turns out cozy and light. However, about auxiliary lighting should not be forgotten, neat, sconces, built-in lamps will do.
If necessary, the space in the wall is easily masked with decorative curtains, or you can generally make doors with a rail mechanism, they will allow you to hide your private corner from prying eyes.
No. 6: Curtains
The way that, apparently, was known to our grandmothers. Remember the old houses in the village, consisting of one large room, it was there that this method found its historical embodiment. Do not lose it relevance now, just add modern materials and designs.
No. 7: The Big Mirror
The reflective surface will help visually increase the room. Choose the most suitable place and size, do not overdo it, it's best not to use it at all. Let the surface be level, without frames and fringing.
No. 8: Miniature Partition
A great way to divide the room into separate zones, while it will let in light and air. In the kitchen, the element can serve as a bar counter with an extra storage space.
No. 9: Back of the bed
In fact, it's just as small a partition, with the only difference - it's mounted directly to the furniture. Dimensions can be any, for example, at the entire height of the ceiling or widow less. Comfortable, stylish and modern.
№ 10: Indoor plants
