7 Small Apartment Design Ideas

Living in a small apartment is challenging especially when you don’t have enough space to put your furnitures.

Here are 7 ways to design a small space apartment:

The decorating and lighting

If the apartment is so small to the extent that it is impossible to separate the bedroom from the living room. Then it is good idea to decorate a small apartment bedroom in a way that it becomes part of the living room. This can be done by matching living room furnitures to a bedroom.

For example, in a one-room apartment with an area of 28 squares designer Julia Veselova (Russian designer) has not distinguished between functional areas, but did provide them with lighting and decor items. Between the sofa and bed of a small apartment appeared lamp hanging above the couch decor, and floor carpet as shown in the picture below.

Bedroom separated from living room by blind

The owner of this small apartment might use curtains and blinds to separate bedroom from a living room in case if one wants privacy for the bedroom space.

We can see this in the picture below, the design project by designer Alexander Nikulin on 17,6 square meters apartment. Instead of splitting the room the owner of the small apartment decided to isolate the sleeping area by a curtain.

Despite the presence and sofa for guests and beds for the hostess, the room is spacious and bright. But if necessary, a heavy curtain can be closed for privacy.

Bedroom in the alcove

If it is possible to redesign the bedroom you can “hide” in the niche. Sometimes it include a couple of bedside tables on both sides of the bed or just a mattress on the podium.

Bedroom in a glass cube

Sometimes plays a role not only the lack of square meters, but the lack of natural lighting. 48.3 squares in the project workshop Geometrium could build a wall, but the owners prefer the glass partition. On the one hand, it isolated bedroom with a bed and a wardrobe, which if desired can be closed and blackout curtains. On the other hand, the walls absolutely transparent, and therefore in the mini-room is always light.
