Today a bit of basics about designing an interior for a small, multi-functional space as we have recently been asked to design interior for a studio flat.
So where to start if there are just 4 empty walls?
Firstly, it is important to establish what the space needs to be doing for the person living there. What functions it needed to have. We have been asked for the bedroom area, dining table (needed to sit up to 6 people for special occasions) and the living area with sofa and TV, and good amount of storage. That means we needed to position the following: single bed with bedside table, sofa, TV (hanged on the wall or on a small stand), extendable dining table and chairs. Having all the measurements of he room we have started to think hot to position all the needed furniture and what size each one should be.
It is also important to think about the flow of the space, so the dining table should be close to the kitchen and the sleeping area somewhere in the corner, hidden if possible. Even when working with existing furniture it is always a good idea to move them around to see that layout works best.
