Homester today has prepared for you, our dear readers, a selection of studio apartment interiors from different European countries, to show that everyone has difficulties in design, you just need to carefully think over and plan your home.
Next, we will introduce you to examples of well-organized apartments of complex shapes or small dimensions, in the space of which it is necessary to arrange the main functional areas.
Industrial style apartment in London
So, let's start with a studio with a very non-standard, interesting layout, with the help of which the designers managed to create comfortable living conditions.
In terms of the apartment, it is an elongated room-sleeve, and, at first glance, making it a full-fledged modern housing seems to be a difficult task. Nevertheless, as a result of the efforts of the professionals, the studio has become functional, light and very stylish with a clear industrial bias.
After the construction of the partitions, two separate rooms appeared in the apartment (a bedroom and a kitchen-living room), and you can get from one to the other without going through the bathroom and dressing room. All rooms are lined up along, and despite the presence of only two windows at the ends of the room-pencil case, the apartment is full of light, looks spacious and voluminous.
The living room is combined with the kitchen, but visually divided by means of facing materials. So, for the guest area were chosen: brutal concrete, masonry, furniture with metal elements and a gray-white range of shades, complemented by bright graphic accents.
The kitchen is made in white and is equipped with steel shade appliances. The zoning element in it is also the lighting, it is point, mounted in the suspended ceiling box.
Pay attention to the flooring: for the entire apartment, a parquet board of a warm chocolate shade has been chosen, which harmoniously complements the cold white and gray range of the studio, making it more comfortable.
A built-in wardrobe was built in the bedroom with the help of partitions, therefore, there is almost no additional furniture in the room. The common feature that unites the two rooms is the industrial style of surface cladding. For example, a concrete ceiling and a wall decorated with stonework.
The apartment is 33 sq.m. in Poland
If your apartment has high ceilings, then even a small area will not spoil the good impression that can be created by correctly thinking over the layout
For example, in a rather modest space, using the example of this cozy Polish apartment, you can arrange a bedroom, separated from the bathroom by a wardrobe, as well as a kitchen-living room.
The kitchen-living room area is decorated in grunge style: here there are brickwork on the walls, parquet with a herringbone pattern, and a huge window with a frame and binding in a dark graphite color.
The furniture is a beautiful three-winged wardrobe with ethnic painting, a dining table with curly supporting legs, as well as chairs with a metal frame, a laconic credenza chest of drawers and a hanging module to match the kitchen furniture.
The studio bedroom is designed in light gray tones with accents of rich greens, blues and shades of pink. An interesting feature of this part of the apartment is the functional separation from the bathroom.
On the periphery, a tall wardrobe is installed, which is also a partition between the bedroom and the bathroom
Studio apartment with an area of 29 sq.m. in Poland
Another good example of competent distribution of a small space in a studio apartment.Thanks to the high ceiling, we managed to plan the room as comfortably as possible, organizing in it not only a kitchen-living room, but also a bedroom, a bathroom and a work area.
Since the apartment was initially small, the color scheme was chosen appropriately (natural white, light wood, cream and contrasting black accents.
So, the kitchen is visually and functionally separated from the living room due to the fact that the furniture is located in a niche, so it seems like they are two different rooms. The impression, moreover, is aggravated by the dining table-counter at the periphery.
The guest area has a work area with a table and a comfortable armchair, behind which there are shelving steps (for books and things) leading to the mezzanine floor. There is a bedroom with a low double bed, near which there is a place for storing personal belongings.
In general, the apartment forms a positive impression, and it certainly stands out among similar ones due to its non-trivial layout
Apartment in Spain
Bright and original studio apartment in fusion style, reflects the peculiar Spanish temperament of its owners. A small space with a standard ceiling height looks light and aesthetically pleasing, thanks in large part to the natural combination of white, blue, woody and sandy tones, as well as the use of materials that are pleasant to the touch.
A notable detail of the interior, which opens up to the eye in the first place, is the embossed masonry on the walls of the guest area.
So, a stone resembling shell rock is a good alternative to brickwork, and in combination with patterned ceramic tiles in the kitchen, this method of wall cladding looks fresh and harmonious
Despite the visual separation with the help of various materials, there are unifying elements in the kitchen-living room. For example, a contrasting fragment of a black wall in the kitchen, which is echoed by an unusual hanging chandelier in the living room.
A studio apartment, in this case, has the advantage of two windows, so its space is perceived as light, despite its modest dimensions and accent methods of surface decoration.
Small studio in Sweden
Scandinavian design is becoming more and more popular today, which is absolutely deserved, because a space decorated in a Nordic style is always functional and very stylish, even when it comes to modest-sized housing.
This small Swedish apartment is an example of a simple yet comfortable space organization with all your needs in mind. The studio is one main room (living room), combined with a dining area. There is a tiny bedroom next to the living room, and from the dining room there is an exit to the kitchen.
Traditionally, most Swedish apartments have the advantage of large windows that are not normally curtained. Consequently, the abundance of daylight makes this small apartment more spacious and lighter
The furnishings of the apartment are formed by the most necessary furniture, commensurate with the modest dimensions, and the light range, consisting of natural shades, allows the use of contrasting graphic accents.
