Now, if with our children we would grow andsquare meters, on which we live together. But, alas, often a family with a child (and even not one!) Is forced to huddle in a one-room apartment. It is good, if this period does not drag on for a long time, but after all children grow quickly, and living space together with them, unfortunately, does not grow. Therefore, the design of a one-room apartment with a child remains relevant, and the question of how to equip the interior in this case, probably from the category of "eternal". However, we note that this "eternal question" is by no means rhetorical. And the answer to it, fortunately is! One-room apartment is not a sentence, and its interior can be fully adapted for joint and even comfortable living of parents and a child. The design of a one-room apartment is in general a favorite theme of masters of interior transformation. Real professionals consider it an honor to cope with such a difficult task and reshape the small-sized living space in comfortable and stylish housing. And their ideas they willingly share with all the suffering. Consider the options and design options for a one-room apartment with a child, taking into account the advice of professionals.
Possibilities of creating a children's room
The first and fairly common option -turning a one-room apartment into a two-room apartment. When, for example, the kitchen moves to a spacious pantry, and its room adapts to the nursery. True, this option is fraught with possible problems in the transfer of communications, and the pantry should be quite roomy at the same time. Another possibility of turning odnushki into kopeck piece is warming the loggia, which becomes a children's room. But, again, the floor of the loggia should meet the necessary standards, and its interior should become residential, that is, the room needs to be heated and electricity. And the third possibility of such re-planning is the erection of an additional partition, which will divide one room into two. However, this design is acceptable for a spacious one-bedroom apartment with two windows. An excellent solution will be the design of a one-bedroom apartment with a niche, which can also be walled off and turned into a small, but a separate children's room.
If the interior of your one-room apartment is notallows you to make a redevelopment and "build" a separate nursery, it remains to find opportunities for allocating a child's half or at least a child's corner. Such design is carried out with the help of the widely known reception of zoning of the living space of a one-room apartment. Here, again, you can use different options. The most common way is zoning with the help of shelving, which perform the function of the same partition, only mobile. And yet such a peculiar wall allows not only to delimit space, but also acts as an open cabinet (book, for example) or shelves. It is advisable to place the shelves so that they do not obstruct the entrance to the rooms and do not become an obstacle that would have to be circumscribed. Also, the partitioning racks should not close the window, even if they are through-through structures - in due course "windows" in the shelves will still be filled with books, toys and different things. In addition, it is recommended to combine the "texture" of the shelves with the general style of furniture in the room and, accordingly, use wooden, metal or plastic structures. With the help of shelving it is possible to fence off an almost isolated children's room, having gained a little space for storing toys or books. Together with this, the entire space of the room will be divided into two zones - the parent and the nursery. However, this option is more suitable for a family with a child-schoolboy. If the heir is still small, it is more convenient to zonate the interior of a one-room apartment with the help of furniture-transformer, which in the afternoon serves as a closed shelving or closet, and at night it transforms into a sleeping place. Ready-made (purchased or custom-made) children's corners are generally a wonderful solution to the problem of organizing children's. Re-planning in this case is not needed, and zoning the interior with additional tricks is not necessary. As a rule, the ready-made children's corner consists of a bunk bed, cabinets and shelves for storing things, as well as places for classes. And all this - a single design, or a set of modules. By and large, such a children's corner can be considered a small house, in which there lives only one tenant - a child. If the family has a very small child, the children's corner can be combined with a sleeping area for parents, where it is necessary to place a crib for the child, a children's table and a box (box, basket) with toys. At an early age the baby needs not so much space, so combining the child's corner and sleeping area will be an excellent option for zoning a one-room apartment.
Selection of furniture and accessories
Regardless of how you solved the issuechildren's organization, interior design for a child requires a special approach. Of course, one can not give universal recommendations on the arrangement of living space for a three-year-old, a first-year student or a teenager who is beginning to grow up. However, there are general moments in the approach to the design of a one-room apartment with a nursery. First, the interior of the children's half should differ from the general living space. This can be done with the help of specially selected finishing materials, which should be primarily environmentally friendly, and the second - in accordance with the purpose of the room. For a children's room (or half) it is desirable to choose finishing materials of calm tones. Allowable and bright colors, but not screaming, and "diluted with milk." If you really want to bring in the interior of bright colors, it is best to do it with the help of separate accents. So, for example, bright in the nursery can be a carpet on the floor, a blanket on the bed or curtains on the windows. But here walls, a ceiling, floor coverings - only quiet shades. Designers categorically do not advise using a red color for the decoration of the nursery, which is considered irritating and exciting. The professionals and wallpapers with plot pictures, and textiles with the image of fairy-tale or "cartoon" heroes, animals are welcomed by professionals. Given that the interior of a one-room apartment does not provide an opportunity to use a large amount of furniture, give preference to folding models. This is especially convenient for the children's half. And again we have to note the enormous advantages of transforming furniture for children. If there is no possibility to purchase a bed-transformer, then choose a small-sized soft furniture. For the child and goat, and a chair-bed, and a small sofa bed. Developing the design of a one-room apartment with a child, professionals often use curtains, which act as partitions. Such hangings are hung on the ceiling cornice and are pulled at night, separating the children's half from the parents' sleeping place. To ensure that such an element does not introduce dissonance into the interior, the portieres match the tone of the walls.
Organization of lighting
If we stop on the division of the roomon the nursery and adulthood, it is necessary to take care of the correct lighting of the room. When space zoning reception is used, each zone is equipped with an independent light source. By the way, this does not mean that you need to abandon the common ceiling chandelier. Taking care of daylight, design with the layout of windows. If the window is only one, then donate a part of the room with a window opening for the nursery. Believe me, for a child, the presence of a window is more important than for you. If there is no way to zonirovat room in this way, then use as partitions through the racks that can pass the daylight. However, one does not need to forget about artificial lighting. Perfectly designed design will allow zoning the interior not only with furniture, but also with the use of different-colored floor coverings and installation of a multi-level ceiling. Such a ceiling with several lighting sources will look stylish and will allow you to use the built-in ceiling lights to illuminate individual areas of the room. In addition to this option, we can dwell on the easier way to organize lighting for a one-room apartment with a nursery. Simply purchase additional wall and floor lamps and place them so that it is light and convenient for all occupants of the apartment.
Two children in a one-room apartment
Such situations, when a family of four peoplelives in a one-room apartment, alas, not uncommon. Therefore, for example, consider the design of a one-room apartment for a family with two children. Ideal option will be redevelopment with the allocation of a separate room for children. However, without redevelopment, you can also do. In this case, you need to intelligently and most comfortably zoning the room. Since there are four residents, we divide the room into two equal halves - for children and for adults. In order not to clutter up an already small room, you can divide the halves by means of a screen. Interior will not seem less if you use lightweight end-to-end shelving instead of a screen, and use a curtain on the ceiling cornice for the night "isolation" of the parents (the design will not suffer from this too). By the way, give the children the far side of the room, which is farther from the entrance - the children go to bed earlier and sleep more tightly than adults. It is very convenient to build a catwalk in the children's half, the lower part of which can be adapted for storing things in drawers. If you prefer this design, you can abandon the dresser. Now we distribute the furniture - two beds (or one bunk, or a folding sofa) "go" to the children, a chest of drawers, a desk (computer). Parents leave a folding sofa, coffee table, a cabinet with a TV and an armchair. At night, the sofa will turn into a sleeping bed, and in the daytime will perform the function of an ordinary sofa in the living room. By the way, the TV will be advisable to replace the plasma panel placed on the wall, which will free up additional space and make the interior more spacious. But without a table, it is difficult to manage - where to arrange Sunday tea parties for watching an interesting film? On the floor you can lay carpet or two carpets, which will create the illusion of isolation of each allocated zone. The interior in this version will look more family and home if you use natural fabrics for its decoration. By the way, on the windows in the nursery and in the adult half you can hang curtains of the same fabric, but of different styles. For example, in the parental zone - ordinary linen drapes with drapery, and in the nursery - a Roman curtain made of the same flax. Do not forget about the color. It is desirable to decorate the interior of a one-room apartment with materials of light colors and furnish with light furniture. Such a reception, by the way, will visually expand the space and add light to it. As for the stylistic decision, in this case the design does not necessarily withstand the same style. Use a mixed style or combine for decoration close in the stylistic plan of the decision. Just do not plan the design of each half in radically different styles: combining high tech with country style is simply ridiculous. In general, for a one-room apartment is best to choose some laconic solution, for example, to develop a design in the style of minimalism. And do not forget to take care of the children's opinion when arranging the children's half. Let the interior in this part of your one-room apartment and not meet the latest fashion trends, but it must meet the needs of children. The child here should be comfortable, cozy and calm. And who, if not parents are able to think over the design of the room so that the children in it live comfortably? And let the square meters do not grow with our children, but then we and parents, so that even in a one-room apartment children feel happy. We advise you to read:
