Criterias of choice
Each person is individual, unique, any family. Therefore, planning, design should be unique. This does not mean that you need to purchase super exclusive furniture, decor. It is important to organize the living space in such a way that it was pleasant to come home, the interior was not annoying, I wanted to receive guests, every thing stood in its place and performed the necessary functions.

Look around you and think about what you want to change in your home, bring in it, to first of all change the quality of life. Well, now let's move to the concretization:1 Decide for yourself how much rational free space will become fashionable over the last time. Below are the pros and cons of this trend.
More free space2Do you plan to increase the family. This is not only the birth of a child, the relocation of parents or relatives, but also the appearance of a dog or cat, fish or chinchilla. Perhaps you want to do sewing, creating a website or organizing a mini garden. All this requires proper zoning.
Proper zoning of space3What colors the family loves. This is not an abstract concept. Color may like (fragmentary). But are you ready to paint the bedroom in a rich blue color and add gold-plated plaster elements to turn the rest room into Madame Pompadour's bedroom?

Owners of apartments in new buildings with a large area and the lack of partitions easier to embody any fantasy. However, the principles described below are applicable to any premises. Designers cannot physically resize rooms. Therefore, they use some tricks that can do wonders.
Design tricks when planning an apartment
First of all, this is the color:1For followers of the Egyptian style, be sure to introduce a rich blue color into the interior. If you want to fall asleep without sleeping pills, order blue stretch ceilings with spotlights for the bedroom.
Egyptian style in the interior looks quite unusual2 Green color in its pure form and all its interpretations help to relax. If you need to create a respectable interior with historical notes - use gray-green shades. Palace charm provided.
Gray-green in the interior of the bedroom3White is a good background for antique, dark and exclusive bright furniture (this is the trend of the last season).

How to raise the ceiling
It would seem that you can not move to the neighbors above or below. However, throughout history, architects have used simple techniques for this. The decor should have a vertical direction. I emphasize: it does not have to be bands, arabesques are applicable, and the like.
"Raise" the ceiling can be vertical lines
A great option: multi-level ceilings, in which the central part of the highest and has upward lighting. Trend of recent years - suspended ceilings. With their help, a perfectly flat surface is achieved. For those who want to increase the height - glossy canvas. To create comfort - matte, with imitation of textiles.

Expand the walls
Arched passages give the effect of expanding space. In small rooms, use a diagonal laying tile, laminate flooring, floorboard, lost the real size of the room.
Interior decorative arches in the interior
In narrow corridors, it is enough to paint the gable walls or pick up the wallpaper two shades darker than the side walls and they will "move apart" before our eyes. This feeling gives decoration pilasters, vertical rods, long paintings, lamps, placed at the same distance.
Pilasters - a luxurious personality
Use colons, pylons, pilasters with capitals, decorating the corners of rooms with a darker decor: coloring, wallpaper, natural or decorative stone.return to menu ↑
Fashion design trends (styles), trends
Marble in different interpretations is used for decorating the floor and walls. However, this should not be a banal tile. It is better to use plates, including ones that mimic this material. Bedspreads, decorative pillows with a marble pattern are added. Materials with this pattern make out the kitchen table tops, coffee tables.
Marble slabs in the decoration of the walls
For decoration, leading designers recommend choosing colors and shades: brown-red, purple, blue (sky color), terracotta, blue, mustard, beige, red (fragmentary). As you can see the range is quite extensive, it can satisfy any preferences. But nevertheless Greenery is called the king of color this year - the color of young green, which personifies the fusion with nature, energy.
Greenery is the trend color of this year.
This direction is echoed by collections of ceramic tiles. The color gamut is homogeneous, with a natural pattern: different shades of ocher, copper are combined with darker shades. Returning to nature requires a large number of living plants. If desired, the room can be turned into a greenhouse.
Shades of nature in the interior of the apartmentA win-win is all natural colors, shades. Return to nature is the designers' motto. Return to menu ↑ Return to menu ↑
How to add comfort to large rooms
Often, apartment owners do not feel comfortable. To prevent this, arrange mini-zones: recreation, watching TV, dining. Such a technique removes psychological stress from the space devoid of walls. Every person needs places, conditionally divided by functions, in order not to feel emptiness.
Zoning one big room
For the rest are grouped sofas, coffee table and chairs + carpet. The dining group includes a slide, a table with chairs, it can be emphasized with another floor covering (tile).
Grouping furniture by zones in the apartment
For favorite activities, even social networking, a corner is organized, which has a comfortable table and chair. Not to be confused with a full-fledged office. It is rather a shell, in which they hide for communication in the network.

Often houses have small kitchens. To maximize their area, instead of a window sill, order a tabletop that will be combined with a working surface. Order hanging cabinets up to the ceiling: you can install items and utensils that you rarely use on the top shelves.
Recently, many housewives do not use ovens. Instead of a conventional oven, install the hob and turn the space under it into a cabinet.
Additional work surface in the kitchen
In the toilet rooms it is rational to install a water heater. It is easy to hide behind a decorative removable panel. If you are not a supporter of many hours of baths and there are no small children in the family, replace the bath with a shower stall or hydrobox. On the vacant place, install the washing machine.

Often, fashion magazines and programs about design advertise the studio version of the organization of space. Before you tear down all the partitions, think about comfort for tomorrow. In fact, designers offer to remove interior partitions and organize visual zoning. Let's look at the pros and cons:
- Open spaces give more light and air.
- You can implement interesting, even classic styles.
- The connection of several functional zones allows you to save time when moving between them.
- Easier to pick up furniture.
Combining the bedroom and living room
- The bathroom combined with the toilet becomes really larger, but if there are more than 2 people in the family, then a queue in front of the door of the hygiene room is guaranteed.
- Living rooms, combined with a kitchen, soak up the smell of food. The same applies to the kitchen area flowing into the hallway. All things will smell, if not meatballs, then risotto. But it will not add to the hostesses of Italian charm.
- In order to connect the rooms with a balcony or a loggia, you need to install double-glazed windows with enhanced heat-saving properties, organize floor and wall insulation. As an option to lay a part of the balcony with gas blocks (they have a double advantage: they hold the temperature and lungs well).
- You can not organize "wet zones" on your own. If you install a bath in the bedroom (the area allows), even a small overflow of water will cause a flood in the neighbors. In order to prevent such a disaster in the process of building a house in the bathrooms and toilets arrange special waterproofing belts.

How to visually combine individual rooms
If you decide to leave the basic project of an apartment with separate rooms, there are some tricks with which you can achieve the effect of open space. Remove all mezzanines, they steal the height.
Make arched passages. Remove the doors in the living room and expand them literally by 20 cm. Above all doors, make desdeporta (in more detail that this is Google to help). On the one hand, similar parts give a feeling of repeatability, which in turn changes the parameters of space.
The arch between the kitchen and the living room
Correctly pick up lights. All devices that are viewed with the doors open should be designed in the same style. This does not mean that you need to buy exactly the same lamps. It is enough that they were with similar shades, shape, color, but of different size, length.
Kitchen and living room with lighting in the same style
Choose a base color that will be repeated in different interpretations in each room. If you want to drive. Design your bathroom in a special way. This room is intimate, it can be knocked out of a single decorative thread.

If the apartment is small, try not to choose large pieces of furniture. Instead of large walls, install a wardrobe in the hallway, bedrooms. You are lucky and the apartment has a pantry, ruthlessly throw out all the trash from it and make a dressing room.
Arrange a pantry under the dressing room
In small rooms, an interesting effect is the design of one wall (for example, behind a sofa) wallpaper with large print drawings. If you decide to make such decoration, all the other walls are framed with plain wallpaper, paint or plaster. It is necessary to choose a color that is in harmony with the color version.

Let yourself dream
It is important to move away from the templates and plan your own housing is not like friends, in fashion magazines, or because it is the trend of the season. First of all, you need to understand that you live in it. But at the same time, move everything that is already covered with dust. Think of me to be pleased today, now and will delight tomorrow. Buy a round table or an unusual floor lamp. Often such details become basic around which the entire interior is built.
