There is a prejudice that the situation of a one-room apartment cannot be fashionable and modern, and its design, no matter how hard you try, will still turn out dull and monotonous. This is largely due to the fact that, having set out to fit in a one-room apartment a lot of massive, and sometimes even unnecessary, furniture, it is completely forgotten about the stylistic unity of design.
The arrangement of a one-room apartment requires the observance of a single style, since a room, and often a hallway with a kitchen, constitute a single, integral space. And in order to preserve its integrity, it is necessary to strictly maintain a single principle, design style and introduce into the interior only those design elements that correspond to this style. That is why, starting the planning of the apartment, it is necessary to draw up a clear project, including everything there, down to the smallest detail: the selection and placement of furniture, the color scheme, finishing options, decorations and interior attributes. In this article we will talk about the most popular design options and arrangement of one-bedroom apartments.
The word "hi-tech" itself is derived from the English phrase high technology - high technology. This style involves the use of ultramodern forms and materials, and probably more than all others is suitable for the design of a small one-room apartment. After all, one of the main distinguishing features of high-tech style is minimalism: no extra details, no pretentiousness and monumentality - aren't we using these principles to furnish a modest odnushku.
The main materials preferred by high-tech style are glass, metal and plastic of light colors. They are able to give the interior visual lightness and spaciousness, and make the surrounding space look like the cabin of a spaceship or the house of the future. The advantage of this style is also the fact that many decorative elements can be made independently of the same metal or plastic. High-tech elements perfectly transmit light and can themselves become additional light sources.
It is no coincidence that modern style is called one of the most elegant and sophisticated: it assumes a multitude of smooth lines and soft outlines. Decorating a room in Art Nouveau style is usually done in pastel colors. Loves modern and a large number of fabrics such as silk and satin. They can drape walls, cover upholstered furniture, or such fabrics can be used for curtains separating one functional area of the room from another.
Baroque style is more suitable for one-bedroom apartments of decent size, because it implies a huge number of decorative elements: stucco moldings, patterns, drawings and inlays. The central elements of the Baroque are often statues, even if the size of the room does not allow you to install something truly monumental, you can always put a small statuette on a cupboard, desk, or niche wall. Despite the small size of the apartment, the Baroque style will be able to give it a majestic, lush and solemn look.
And the last popular style that we consider - the classic. He is the most restrained. The main elements of it are stucco, parquet, drapery on the windows. Classic interior is usually performed in warm brown colors, which gives the room a special comfort and refinement.
Arches and columns, which are also an attribute of the classic style, will be a great way to demarcate functional areas, as well as visually increase the size of the room. Arches can also be replaced and the walls separating the room and kitchen or the kitchen and hallway, which also significantly increase the area of free space. In that case, if the size of the room allows a classic interior can be effectively complemented by an electric fireplace, which will give the room a special chic and warm homely atmosphere.
