Design of a one-room apartment

Modern design in a small apartment requires a special approach. Setting up a layout in itself can seem like a daunting job, especially when it is smaller than most others.

How much furniture does it cost to buy? Is the space already too cluttered or seems too empty? Should you also create a work area? What about the color palette of the apartment? The questions are endless, and once you solve one, the answer sometimes creates 10 more questions. Fortunately, the beauty of creative freedom and the power of the internet means that no matter how small your apartment is, you can find a variety of ideas and layouts that will apply to your life situation.

The choice of colors for smart apartment design plays a key role. It is not easy for everyone to find a color solution for a room. But the effort is worth the result you get. In this case,  the color palette should create the illusion of free space. So, we make a choice in the direction of light shades. Pastel colors are great. This is a great life hack for creating the feeling that there is a lot of space in the apartment.

Furniture in a studio apartment can change the look of the apartment. In order for it not to take up most of the space, it is better to think about buying multifunctional furniture. Since the living room and bedroom are in the same room, practical furniture is especially recommended. A fold-out sofa bed, for example, is ideal as a bed.

Bonus tip: It's best to opt for a pull-out sofa with a bed drawer because it creates additional storage space that you can use for your bedding or other items. Tables can turn out to be true warehouse wonders too. At best, you should use free wall space to get as much free floor space as possible, rather than an overwhelming living environment. Hanging cabinets or shelves above the doors are great practical helpers for placing things that are not needed all the time. You can even mount your TV on a wall or ceiling to furnish your one-room apartment in a smart way. It is completely hassle-free for modern flat screen devices. The movable mounting fixtures even allow the screen to be rotated so that your TV program is clearly visible from any corner of the room.

Pay attention to the proportions! Don't buy all the furniture very small, or you will end up with an unwanted "dollhouse". Find a middle ground.

Maintaining order and self-discipline is very important! Get things in order. There are many options for furniture, where there are special storage spaces inside. For example, if your shoes are just sitting in the hallway, give them their own space. 

Set priorities, ask yourself the question: Do you work a lot from home? If the answer is yes, then it is better to increase the office space than to buy a sofa set. Find out your needs and plan accordingly!

Make the best use of every corner: make full use of corners and walls, as well as wall surfaces next to windows and doors! Don't leave unused space. For example, you can put a coffee table with hidden storage space, a bed with this feature, or a bedside drawer. Pull-out furniture creates a balance between comfort and style. Also works great with cabinets or tables: Built-in drawers and pull-out surfaces allow you to create space exactly when you really need it. This will help you make good use of the space around you.

Plan wisely! Stack things that you don't need every day or that are seasonal (winter clothes, Christmas decorations), for example, in the attic, in the basement, under the bed, or in the back closet.

Use every nook and cranny

Sloped corners and stairs are often overlooked, although they really save space when furnishing small apartments! After all, they are ideal for placing a desk, shoe cabinets, wine cabinets.

As a rule, when designing a one-room apartment, the following applies: accessories should not overload the room, but should seem functional.

Light plays an important role, because it is the play of light and shadow that gives the room depth. The right light sources are essential to create visually large rooms. Hanging lamps, floor lamps, table lamps, lampshades - there is no limit to creativity.

Create optical depth. Even with a small space, a room shouldn't look like a little overcrowded chaos. Create peace and order with the right furniture placement and optical techniques. Optical depth can be created with mirrors or light colored walls. 

The decoration makes the home cozy, but should only be used in a small apartment. In addition, it is worth starting decorating only when everything you need has really found its place. When it comes to decorating, limit yourself to useful home accessories that look good and don't take up a lot of space.
