No matter how small a home, smart space utilisation, sensible decoration, the right colours and tasteful lighting can do wonders. A proper layout and carefully chosen furniture can also make a lot of difference. So today, we will take you through this stylish 700 sqft apartment rendered by the architects at Brando Concept. With a common area that merges the living, dining and kitchen, and a smart bedroom and bathroom, this home is a stunner. It will surely inspire you for your Indian project too.
In a small home, it is crucial to choose versatile and compact furniture so that space can be utilised optimally. The sofa beds in this open plan living area can become sleeping units if required, and the ottomans can act as coffee tables. The TV is also sleek, wall-mounted and takes up the least amount of space.
The beige, white and grey environment of the common space along with the glossy surfaces reflect light beautifully, making the apartment appear bigger and brighter. Besides tall glass windows, artificial lighting also helps in livening up the space.
The light hue of the floor enhances the spaciousness of the home and contrasts the dark, glossy surfaces of the kitchen nicely. Smooth and closed cabinets accommodate all essentials and appliances efficiently, while the floor to ceiling kitchen wastes minimal amount of floor area.
It is difficult to adorn small spaces with all the artefacts or memorabilia you own. But small details can make a lot of impression. For instance, in this room, a single artwork, a geometrically inspired lamp above the dining table and a stone wall add personality and taste. The varied textures and shades of the sofas, tables and chairs also add visual depth here.
Following the same style or colour palette in each room can make a small home appear more continuous and spacious. In this bedroom for instance, subtle shades of white and silvery grey lend a modern and masculine feel. Geometric motifs in the artwork and on the cushions offer visual interest.
Elegant shades of grey and smooth storage units add class to this modern bathroom, and make it a very functional space too. The cabinets keep clutter at bay, while the painting in blue adds a vibrant touch.
A small home should always invest in materials which are of good quality, aesthetically pleasing, durable and elegant. Here you can see how a natural stone wall, wooden doors, and a leather sofa and ottomans create a unique style statement. The cushions and throws contribute to the consistent decor too.
