The reason for starting the repair can be burnt-out wallpaper, plumbing that has served its purpose and other reasons. Overhaul is a complete change in the appearance of an apartment, an opportunity to create a unique interior, to bring to life all design ideas. Having engaged in repairs, you can make the apartment not only more comfortable, but also correct the flaws in the layout, make the unity of style, which will be unique and individual.
Creative solutions for organizing space
Unfortunately, not everyone has a lot of space, so you need to pay attention to ergonomics, think over the layout and functional areas, their location. Applying modern design ideas, you can visually increase the space, raise ceilings and change the lighting system.
A tall glass sliding door between rooms can visually unite two rooms, improving their illumination. For the Scandinavian style, it is better to use doors with a white frame, in the loft style, gray or black is used.
Finding free storage space in a small room is difficult, if not impossible. In this case, designers recommend using a storage system under the ceiling. Shelves are attached around the perimeter of the room, where you can arrange all the necessary things. The shelves need to be painted in the color of the ceiling, this will create unity, emphasize the geometry of the space.
The rack can be used as a partition. It is best to use a narrow type of shelving under the ceiling, it will be able to divide the space into two functional zones, and open sections will allow natural light to fill the room, while the interior will not be overloaded.
If you refuse heavy partitions, then you can apply a combined flooring. For example, a kitchen and a living room can be separated by using tiles in the kitchen and parquet in the living room. For the correct combination, you need to use materials similar in color, and decorate the joint with a decorative profile. It is better to lay the flooring diagonally to expand the space..
If the apartment is executed in the style of minimalism, then the TV zone can be used as a partition, it is a wall with marble cladding. Ideal for a small studio apartment where every available square footage plays an important role.
Combining the living room and kitchen is a well-known design move that does not lose its relevance. Sometimes it is impossible to completely remove the partition, then you can decorate the opening with a white baguette, and a TV can be placed above the opening, which will visually expand the functionality of the room.
Relatively low ceilings are a common problem. In order to visually raise them, the ceiling should be made even lower. Does this action seem inconsistent? This is the main mistake, because having made suspended ceilings with an individual lighting system, you can visually raise them. The main thing is not to completely close the ceiling with a suspended structure, but to leave «grooves» for LED backlighting. In this case, it will seem that there is a lot of space behind the false ceiling, which will visually make the ceiling taller and more voluminous..
Interesting modern renovation ideas
One interesting way to make the interior more sophisticated is to equip shelves and cabinets with individual lighting. Such a move will add depth, place the right accents. The backlight can be either contour or point, color or just white. What kind of lighting to use can be decided by the owner himself, because each option is interesting in its own way.
The accent wall has gained particular popularity in recent years. In this case, the whole room is executed in one calm tone and only one of the walls is decorated with photo wallpaper or a modern fresco in bright colors. For baroque or classic it is better to use a print with flowers, which will make the room more expressive and cozy..
Glass stair railing can make a two-story apartment lighter and more airy. In this case, you need to use a special tempered glass with a thickness of 1 centimeter. This option will organically fit into the modern design, will not hide the space, will not block the streams of light.
Forged decor is not a cheap pleasure, but it can add a romantic atmosphere, make your home more comfortable and original. It is best to use forging in chairs located on the balcony – this will give a certain charm and make the seating area more relaxed.
Ceramic «carpet» – another original design idea. It is best to use this option in the kitchen or living room, suitable for any style. Drawing ceramic «carpet» depends on the color scheme of the room, but contrasting colors can also be used. Ease of maintenance and long service life are the main advantages of this solution..
Modern renovation includes not only the selection of the right materials and design tricks, but also a thoughtful approach to the choice of furniture. By choosing it incorrectly, you can ruin everything that has been done and the overall impression will deteriorate dramatically.
A modular sofa is an indispensable piece of furniture in which each element is an independent piece of furniture. Having collected all the parts together, you can turn an armchair or ottoman into one stylish sofa. The dignity of the sofa is independence, variability.
Cabinet with «attic» – a popular solution for the nursery. In this case, a special play area is installed on the cabinet, where the child can spend his time, while the useful area of the room remains unchanged. For reliability and safety, you need to make a special fence, and at night «second floor» wardrobe can serve as a sleeping place for the child’s guests.
Hanging cabinets in the kitchen can be replaced with wide shelves, making the kitchen lighter. Such a design move is used only in modern and ultra-fashionable apartments made in the style of minimalism..
Among the more familiar options for a modern apartment, one can consider built-in furniture that can rationally organize the space, which is especially important if there is not much of it. The bunk beds in the nursery are still popular. Modern options have additional storage systems, which will free up space by placing all the necessary things and toys in special compartments.
