Mobilizing a small apartment is the dilemma of much of the urban population. The few square meters leave the resident with very few options. Plan, research, budget, but nothing seems to fit anywhere. Or worse, when the project is legal, it does not fit in the pocket.
But calm down, do not despair. There is an exit at the end of the tunnel. The planned furniture is undoubtedly the best option for those who live in a small apartment. They are fully space adaptable and made-to-measure so that no valuable centimeter is wasted.
However, it is possible to benefit even more from the planned furniture in small apartments. Want to know how? So check out the tips below:
Planned furniture small apartment: functionality
The grand balcony of the planned furniture is the functionality. If he does not have a job, you run a serious risk of being left with a white elephant stumbling along the middle of a path, which is already greatly reduced.
So even if you love a coffee table, a desk, or that lovely eight-seat dining table, understand that a small apartment is not the best place for them. Instead, choose furniture that adds functionality and practicality to the day-to-day, like an American counter, instead of the table, for example.
Bend, stretch and pull
Another good idea for small flat designed furniture is those that offer retractable, reclining and / or folding mechanisms. They are practical, versatile and, best of all, when not in use they can stay guarded without taking up any space.
One way to use this type of furniture is, for example, in meal, study or work benches. You can still opt for retractable workbenches in the kitchen that make it easier to prepare food, and for the bedroom, there is even the option of beds that fold or recline to the wall, releasing a living space.
A thousand and one Utilities
In a small apartment how much more functions the same mobile can accumulate better. In this case, the sofa can become a bed, the bed can house drawers, the table may have a niche hidden under the lid to organize objects, among other possibilities. Creativity here has no limit, everything will depend on the configuration of your space and what you really need.
Release the floor and throw it all up
Another way to make the most of the furniture planned for a small apartment is by putting them on the wall instead of supporting them on the floor. Suspended and aerial furniture is a great way to save space and free up area for movement. One example is dumb racks and dumbwaits, aerial cabinets, niches and shelves.
And, if you have a high ceiling, consider creating a mezzanine to extend the apartment area. You can put your bed upstairs or mount the closet on this new "floor."
The integration of environments is the key to success for those who want a visually more spacious apartment. When the environments are integrated the feeling of space is bigger and the look gets more clean and organized as well.
To accomplish this integration, opt for planned furniture that extends on a bench to delimit, for example, the kitchen in the room or, then, use leaked shelves with niches between one environment and another.
Hide and seek
What you do not like, hide. In smaller environments, less visual information, the better. For this reason, choose cabinets that have this ability to hide certain essential elements of the house, but do not necessarily have to be exposed, such as the service area. That's it! You can "hide" the washing machines behind a sliding door. Another option is to "store" the desk in the closet between the kitchen and the living room and get it out of the room only when it is needed.
Whenever possible choose to use sliding doors in the planned furniture, from the wardrobe to the kitchen cabinet. They save a lot of space because they do not need open space for opening.
Small or built-in knobs are best suited for small apartment furniture. This is because this type of handle does not disturb the circulation and you do not run the risk of getting screwed on it or twisting some other object.
With these tips in hand, talk to the designer responsible for your furniture and see the possibility of inserting these small but fundamental details into your furniture to optimize the space of your apartment and make everyday life easier.
