Design of “odnushki”: tricks for a small space - options and ideas (with photo)
One-room apartment - it does not matter, small-sized or studio apartment - the same living space, and it is quite natural that the residents of “odnushki” want to come to a comfortable house. Let it be said that the arrangement of a one-room apartment is a matter of a few hours, but even then it will have to be a brawl over the design and furnishings plus equip a dwelling with necessary household items.
Studio apartment immediately after repair
What problems may arise in the selection of interior design one-room apartment?
- Small square. And on it it is necessary to manage to place everything “the most necessary” - furniture, appliances, household items.
- Definition of style decision. Perhaps someone would find such a statement ridiculous, but you should listen to him: keeping to a certain interior style, you can easily allocate space for each item in an apartment.
- Zonality of the apartment.This means that in the same studio apartment it is necessary to immediately distinguish between places for specific activities: where to eat, where to hang out with a book (for couples with children, play or work with the child).
But you still want to arrange your trinkets and photos, beautiful plants, books, put a cat tray in the corner and an aquarium for fish ... The list goes on and on.How to be unhappy owners of one-room?
- First, “odnushki” is no worse than “two-bedroom”, especially if it is - studio apartments.
- Secondly, using the advice and recommendations of professionals, as well as their creative abilities, you can independently arrange a fairly comfortable home in which several functional zones will be combined.
- Thirdly, the best option would be to purchase furniture-transformers: a sofa bed, a podium sofa, folding tables, racks, drawers. A well-chosen finish will help to visually “push the walls”.
"Budget" option delineation of recreation areas and dining
There are no partitions or full walls. Separate the space are two options for flooring and a sofa.
The second option is the division into zones
Any designer would say that “odnushki” and minimalist style of the interior are simply made for each other Minimalism of the apartment manifests itself literally in everything - in furniture, in color, and even in the number of interior accessories.
Minimalism in a small one-room apartment
“Minimum furniture, maximum comfort!”- under this slogan, you can choose the situation for a low-flat apartment. There will be nothing superfluous in it, all that is most necessary: a dining table with chairs, a sofa bed for the sleeping area. Well, there may still be a bookshelf or shelving unit. But the TV of modern design is quite possible to hang on the wall - so save space under it.
Design options for one-bedroom apartments (with photo explanations)
Option 1. Selection of zones using the "bar" racks
Separating the kitchen-dining room from the living room with a mini-rack and an arched plasterboard opening
In this case, the emphasis is placed on the rack with the opening: despite the same floor covering, the stand with the partition of the plasterboard is both a space divider and a connector of two different functional areas in the apartment.
By the way, the kitchen with the bar can also be brought to the podium - it looks very interesting!
Option 2. Installing the partition
The device is low (up to 1.2 m in height) partition walls made of plasterboard for a clear indication of functional areas (small redevelopment of the room)
Despite the fact that the decoration throughout the apartment (room) is the same - light wallpaper on the walls, light flooring, and furniture is matched to the finish, there is a demarcation of space: the partition serves as a "separator" for the living room, an island in the form of a dining table and the chairs belong to the dining area, and the kitchen set, located along the wall, indicates the working area (place for cooking).
The partition for the demarcation of zones "has grown", but in order not to overload the space, you can install an aquarium in this place.
ActuallyAquarium installation solution is a good solution for those who do not want to dwell on the minimalist style, and dilute it with "wildlife". In addition, the decision to leave the partition, while using glass to maintain the "airiness" of the space, creates the illusion of two different rooms.
Partition for the bedroom area
As you can see, with low partitions you can fence off not only the kitchen with a dining room, but also your bed.

The next option is the division into sleeping and working areas in a small-sized apartment. Despite the clutter in the form of a rack, a feeling of lightness and "airiness" of the interior is created - and all thanks to the slotted windows in the partition.
Glass partitions in the interior of a one-room apartment
Another brilliant solution is the use of glass. For high-tech or modern style all-glass partitions will be most welcome. Sliding doors, metal fittings and excellent finishes, which are in harmony with the color of the furniture - this can also be a combination of a kitchen and a dining room with simultaneous separation of the living room area.

Option 3. Selection of zones with the help of finishing
Combining the hall with the kitchen
In this case, two such functional areas as the dining room and living room are combined, and the combination is almost perfect. And the wallpaper in the quality, as well as the ceiling, only emphasize the allocation of recreation areas.
Option 4.Separating zones from each other using island racks
Recreation area and living area are separated from each other using a bookshelf-rack.
By the way, shelving "islands" can be used both as mobile (simply shelves with shelves placed on them), and as stationary. Modern design layouts for small-sized apartments (including the former “Khrushchev”) offer a choice of various zoning ideas for small areas, such as:
Separation of the bedroom from the hall
Rack island mobile
Rack island stationary
But for those who like to read very much, it is advisable to design a bookshelf in such a way that neither excess space nor stylistic decision will “suffer”. The main thing is to harmoniously combine the type of bookshelves with the general interior of the room.

Interior design studio apartments
Perhaps this type of apartment should be considered the best, because from it you can easily "fashion" everything your heart desires. Studio apartments initially do not have interior partitions and redecoration, which create certain difficulties in the design of the dwelling, and therefore the selection of finishes and furniture placement are completely in the hands of the owner or a specialist designer. Sometimes designers offer their ideas from existing photo galleries in their portfolio, and choosing one or another option is a chore.
It should be noted that the construction of partitions is not necessary - just enough to correctly arrange the furniture and choose the "right" shades for a beautiful finish.
If the studio apartment is quite small, and you still want to divide the room, you can consider several ideas that combine one result: a combined kitchen and dining room, a bathroom, an office, a place of rest and a living room (hall).
It is not more difficult to equip the interior of a studio apartment than an ordinary one-room apartment, but even here some nuances should be taken into account.
- Firstly, the space should be free, not oppressive, and this means that the room is automatically divided into zones that have certain purposes - a recreation area and a food reception area, a playing area and a place to work (office). It is desirable that the furniture was arranged in such a way as not to interfere with the movement of the room. The best option - the arrangement of the walls.
Furniture is placed along the walls, in the center of a small room - free space
- Secondly, studio apartments initially have a “free” layout, i.e., the owners have the right to decide where to put the partition, and where it is not necessary.
- Thirdly, it is still better to select color solutions in soothing colors in order to visually raise the ceiling of the room. However, in those apartments where the ceiling height allows, you can use the useful volume of the room as follows:
The berth is equipped on the “second” floor, and under it a full-fledged workplace is arranged.
Design apartment of 40 square meters
40m2: capacious "small size"
Such an apartmentgood for a young couplewith one child. Its design really provides everything you need: a sliding wardrobe, a transforming bed, a dining area and a hall.Instead of standard doors, you can use a sliding or an accordion door, and instead of a fenced seating area (bedroom), space can be allocated either by a catwalk or a canopy.
Bed with a "canopy": an economical design planning solution
Bed with sliding curtains.
The material of the “curtains” is polycarbonate, so they are easy to use, and the translucency of the material gives the interior weightlessness and at the same time a clear idea of the space delimitation.
Another solution to the zoning project is the bed-podium. Takes a minimum of space, it looks interesting enough, suitable for children's beds. If “meters” allow, you can arrange a niche near one of the walls, beating it in the form of a sleeping zone.

The most common mistakes in the selection of design for one-bedroom apartments
Error number 1. "Pile up" accessories and color combinations
The very first rule of minimalism style is not to overload the interior of a small apartment. Of course, this does not mean that the room should be empty at all - just the furniture should have a minimum of complementary details.Well, or "be able to" quickly transform into several movements.
Error number 2. Split ceiling in studio apartment
As you know, multi-level ceilings take away 20-30 cm of usable volume, and even in apartments with standard ceilings, they will not look very appropriate at all. Especially if you try to “build” such a ceiling in the center of the room and fix a huge chandelier to it. Agree that this jumble has a pressing effect.
Error number 3. Houseplants in window openings
And this is also a common mistake: the cultivation of flowers is a good and grateful thing, flowering plants will always please the eye of the owner of the dwelling, but not in the one-room apartment! Because the pots on the windows block out all daylight.
Error number 3a. Flowers on the windows
And, of course, do not forget about the bathroom. As a rule, bathrooms in studio apartments and one-bedroom apartments are combined. If the bathroom is separate, but the auxiliary rooms are so small, then the idea of their association will certainly arise. And that's not bad: in the combined room is best to put a shower stall instead of a bath.
Observing the simple rules of planning one-room apartments and studio apartments, competently selecting furniture and decoration, combining various colors and shades, everyone can arrange in his apartment a real paradise.
