The maximum from minimum

Interior design project for a small apartment occupied by a couple whose children live separately. The clients had specific requirements, including a separate bedroom, a designated workspace, and relocating the utility unit from the bathroom. The team was able to create a design plan that satisfied all these requirements while staying within the budget.

Designers about their project:

We worked with a classic one-room apartment of 38 square meters: the kitchen is in a smaller space and the living room is in a larger one. This kind of layout is pretty uncomfortable to live in, because it is almost impossible to provide the inhabitants with a separate bedroom — the bed will inevitably happen to be in the living room. Allocating the large room solely for the bedroom would result in the kitchen becoming the only area for resting and hosting friends. We replanned the apartment in compliance with all legal restrictions, i.e. separated the kitchen-living room and the private bedroom.

There is a complete corner unit in the kitchen: the appliances are built into the cabinets and there is a straight black countertop. Its color is echoed by the built-in profile handles. Column cabinets and top modules reach up to the ceiling; the stove is equipped with a built-in hood hidden behind the facade.

The balcony is insulated, and there is a home office organized within this area. We have designed and manufactured a hanging desk and two cabinets for documents and household items. Besides, there is a place to charge the robot vacuum cleaner under the large cabinet.

The center of the kitchen-living room is accentuated with a large double-sided wardrobe. There is a shelf niche on the side of the sofa.

Easy access to the bed is guaranteed with two passageways leading into the bedroom. In addition, we put frosted glass sliding partitions so that the light from the window would go into the living room as well.

The bed has a headboard facing the window so that it is possible to hang a TV on the wall. We have made sure that the headboard will not be either overheated by the radiator or cold. We installed wall vents to allow fresh air in, so the windows can be kept closed.

There was an uneven protruding pylon left on the right wall. We decided not to level the entire wall so as not to lose even a centimeter, but to correct the pylon geometry and finish it with porcelain stoneware.

The bathroom has been slightly enlarged at the expense of the hallway. This room is narrow, so we put a shallow cabinet with a worktop washbasin on it. There is also some place for storage and access to utility systems above it.
