How to arrange a small apartment? Functional solution of open layout

22 of March '22

Elegance is never limited by space. In a small apartment, Krakow-based studio Marbou opted for a unique, open and functional layout. The most important thing in the apartment was conscious moderation in the choice of colors, patterns and materials. The arrangement shows how to organize an interior with a small area in an interesting way.

choosing the color scheme

The dominance of shades of gray, juxtaposed with matte black metal elements was the client's wish. The combination of these two elements was warmed by the natural shades of oak appearing in the interior.

Equally important was the introduction of quartz sinters - their distinguishing feature are small red veins running throughout the board. They are visible primarily in the cooking area, blending perfectly with the gray-wood kitchen cabinetry.

looking for maximum use

The small size of the apartment was not a problem, but an incentive to look for new functional solutions. One of the flagship ideas was to introduce a discreet and capacious interior design.

opening up to the living room

The only space that has been separated is the lobby. A small openwork screen of metal in black matte was used, which was combined with a capacious chest of drawers. This is the space where a capacious closet was also inserted - which was framed by mirror fronts with black frames.

The heart of the house is a light sofa, accompanied by an armchair with a footstool and a table with a quartz sintered top. Next to it you can see a bookcase for books and decorative accessories. This development also included an air conditioner, although it is difficult to see at first glance.

kitchen in gray-wood tones

The kitchen is solved in an interesting way. The aforementioned quartz sinter was used here, which was aesthetically combined with wood. Because of the surfaces, a kitchen island was not chosen. All kitchen appliances and accessories are housed in a capacious wooden cabinet.
