My challenge was to incorporate as much day to day amenities on a 24 sqm unit.
It was clear that I would have to strategically use mirrors to create the illusion of space. In this case I used it on the wall to the small dinette fronting the bed. I added a double bed flushed to wall, but added wall padding on the side to make it more comfortable and not cold to the touch that concrete feels.. I had drawers built below the bed. The foot board becomes a small seating for guests with drawers below. All around the room were overhead shelves to store books, magazines and other items. I have placed the microwave oven on top of the refrigerator on custom made shelves.
This was my proposed design and the finish product:
|I have used 2 layers of Roman Shade, The Combi Blinds allows natural light and appreciation of the view while the Blackout provides privacy at bight.|
|Mirrors are placed along the same side of the wall doubling the space. Stools that doubles as storage were used.|
|Wood grain wallpaper are a nightmare. I should have just used ribbon grain plywood and stained.|
|I have added a small seating area fronting the TV|
|I have added mirrors between the top and bottom kitchen cabinets to make the counter space appear bigger|
Given the opportunity, I want to be able to design more of this.
