Own Microcosm

The apartment we visited was left to the owner in a completely ruined state. But the result of the repair was very successful!

The apartment we visited was left to the owner in a completely ruined state. Therefore, the first thing that was decided to be done was to clear everything and start from scratch. The area of ​​the apartment is not very large - 68 m², but due to the fact that the same wooden floor is laid everywhere (including the kitchen area), it seems much larger and more spacious.

The windows of the apartment overlook the courtyard-well, and directly opposite after 5 meters is an office building, the sky is almost invisible. Therefore, the paintings and photographs created by Ekaterina's friends act as windows and create an outlet to additional space. “I couldn’t decide on a style,” says Ekaterina, “and in order to understand how it’s easier for me to live, I did everything differently in different zones: retro 60s in the kitchen, classic in the living room, and in the bathroom minimalism. When I started the renovation, I was ready to change everything over time. But it turned out that it is very convenient for me to live in such a "diversity".

Layout

"I knew I needed a small bedroom, a small work area and a separate bathroom. The rest of the area was distributed between the living room and the kitchen, because I love guests and I love to cook. It was also important for me to have no wardrobes, only a built-in wardrobe in the hallway and a separate dressing room in the bedroom.”

By the way, small windows are cut into the walls of the bathroom and toilet, so daylight enters the rooms. It is always happy and uplifting.

Kitchen

The walls of the kitchen are covered with wallpaper, and instead of an "apron" of tiles, solid glass is installed. It's very practical and doesn't create unnecessary space fragmentation.

Practical advice. “The kitchen set, all plumbing fixtures and furniture in the bathroom are not at all expensive. I spent a lot of time going around expensive showrooms and showrooms and wondering what items were on sale. It turned out that almost any item from the storefront is sold at a 50-70% discount. You need to wait for the window dressing, and in expensive stores and salons they are changed quite often. So I managed to save a lot,” says Ekaterina.

Design

“The size of the built-in wardrobes in the hallway and dressing room was determined based on the dimensions of the things that need to be stored (mountain skis, 20-liter cans of water, a vacuum cleaner, stocks of washing powder, etc.). As a result, I got a completely empty and spacious apartment in which everything was in its place. Then furniture began to appear in the planned areas, which I made to order in the cabinetmaker Ivan Formin's workshop. A bed with bedside tables, a chest of drawers, a dining and work table and a frame for a mirror in the hallway were made by Ivan. Now it remains just to settle in an apartment.”
