These new creative small apartment design ideas will help you decorate your own home in an original way
55 square meters on Frunzenskaya
It was a standard two-room apartment with equally sized rooms and a small kitchen. Designer Olga Litvinova proposed a radical redevelopment: an isolated bedroom appeared instead of the kitchen, a full-fledged workplace in the living-dining room space was organized on a long windowsill. The designer's finds are paired scarlet radiators and a mirrored wall opposite the windows, which multiplies the amount of sunlight and visually dissolves the wall: the apartment seems more spacious than in real life.
56 square meters in the old Khrushchev - three rubles
Apartment with extremely low ceilings and a tiny kitchen. Designer Olga Khovanskaya offered the client a solution with an unusual transformable table. The structure on furniture casters is moved along the surface of the window sill in the kitchen and living room (the window had to be lowered slightly to match the height of a traditional table). Now, depending on the tasks of the owner, the table can be turned into three independent mini-tables or a common dining table.
36 square meters in the residential complex Nikolaevskiy Dom, Moscow
Designer Elena Koroleva carefully stylized this tiny new building as a loft: for facing, they used an old brick of the 19th century, taken from buildings to be demolished. It was dissolved into plates: thin lining does not eat up the volume of the room. But most shocking, of course, is the design of the bathroom - a room with glass walls. For all its exoticism, this solution made it possible to visually unload a small apartment (it does not seem to be “cut” into small segments). The glass is electrochromic: at the touch of a button on the remote control it becomes frosted from transparent and vice versa.
Designer's personal apartment in Yekaterinburg, 56 square meters
Nikita Zhilyakov bought an apartment in an old house in a very sad abandoned state. After three trucks of construction debris were hauled away and the walls were cleared of ugly plastic panels, the stunningly beautiful original paint layer was exposed. The designer decided to mothball it and make it the basis of a future design project. To maintain the mood, an antique old sideboard was bought, some of the furniture was found at European flea markets. In order not to spoil the precious paint layer with strobes, external electrical wiring was performed.
Design of a one-room small-sized apartment - 23 square meters in Moscow, the Rechnoy Vokzal metro area
Tiny studio apartment with a built-in sofa by the window. The seat is essentially a continuation of the kitchen set (its level was lowered, roomy drawers were made); the battery remained in the same place - it was hidden behind the back. For air convection, a grate is built into the window sill from above, and holes are left in the basement from below, - explains the author of the project, Vladislava Gravchikova. Despite the external compactness of the dining room, a soft sofa, a folding table and light chairs allow seating at least 6 people
33 square meters in Manhattan House residential complex, Moscow
The male owner of a loft-style apartment in a small new-build studio loves to cook and watch good movies. He set a difficult task for the designer: to make a kitchen "packed" with modern appliances, to equip a home theater and a full-fledged bedroom in the design of a one-room small apartment. The author of the project - Nadya Zotova - found a solution: the projection screen of the home theater is lowered along the front of the kitchen unit. The worktop and the sink area behind it are closed with comfortable blinds: all unwashed dishes can be removed with one movement of the hand before guests arrive. The bedroom is tailored literally to the size of the bed, separated from the rest of the apartment space behind a partition with glazing.

Personal apartment of designers Korneev Design Workshop - Anton and Katya, which they renovated for subsequent rental. The mansion of 1903 was in a deplorable state, but in the process of a major cleaning of the house from “cultural layers”, it was possible to significantly increase the height of the ceilings. The walls were simply painted according to old brick (white in the kitchen-living room, anthracite slate paint in the bedroom: you can write on it with chalk). Vintage doors in the design of a small apartment became the head of the bed.

Once a well-known decorator Diana Balashova wrote on her blog that she was ready to give anyone who wants wallpaper samples from her own collection: these are 45x45 cm pieces that factories traditionally send to professionals as samples from the new catalog. Designer Masha Yashina gladly accepted the gift - as a result, a few years later, wallpaper pieces became a patchwork-style accent wall in one of her projects. Maria assembled a 3x4 meter panel on her own, being eight months pregnant. “I had to lay it out on the floor and literally crawl on my belly. But it was a very nice job,” recalls the designer.
Design of an entrance hall in a small apartment of 29 sq m in Moscow
To fulfill the wishes of the customer, the designer had to develop nine (!) design options for a small apartment. The result is a fairly spacious bedroom, hallway, kitchen, living room and bathroom. The favorite green chest of drawers served as the color basis for the project - the hostess asked Irina Litvinova to “add colors” and the designer gladly fulfilled her wish. “After the chest of drawers, we definitely decided that the sofa would be yellow and the curtains black and white. Then they added a little fuchsia in the pillows and pouffe in the hallway. The role of the dining table is performed by the table top and bar stools designed by the famous Konstantin Grchik.
Apartment of 78 square meters in Odintsovo, Moscow region
The apartment is interesting for the incredible technique of decorating the walls in the bedroom: all the walls of the snaal were painted in rich purple, then, over the paint, pasted over with guipure. Designer Ekaterina Ivanova bought ordinary sewing guipure in rolls, bright pink, and used glue for textile wallpapers to glue it. Thanks to the superimposition of pink on purple, a deep, spectacular color of the walls was obtained, changing under different lighting conditions. An additional decor was an appliqué above the head of the bed from another layer of guipure, white, in the form of a flying phoenix bird"
