10 ideas of design living for small apartments

Есть много способов добиться хорошего функционального дизайна в небольших квартирах или домах. С развитием технологий и уровня жизни, пришли высотные здания и городские жилые помещения стали компактнее, в своём большинстве.

Но просто потому, что квартиры и дома стали компактней, не означает, что у вас не может быть хорошего функционального дизайна. С творческим подходом и мышлением "out of the box", небольшие дома могут быть очень стильно обустроены и выглядеть роскошно, не ставя под угрозу образ жизни или Ваше пространство.

Самая большая проблема, связанная с небольшой квартирой, - нехватка места для хранения. В идеале это можно решить с самого начала при создании архитектурных планов, чтобы место для хранения изначально было включено в проект. Но зачастую спланировать маленькую площадь сложно сделать или идей совсем нет... Вот когда творчество и изобретательность приходят на помощь.

Посмотрите наши десять полезных дизайнерских идей, чтобы сделать маленькую квартиру живым, потрясающим и целеустремленным местом

  1. Поднимите пол или добавьте платформу.

КУПИТЬ

Большинство современных домов имеют высокие потолки, и это позволит Вам поднять свой пол так, чтобы Вы могли использовать пространство ниже, как хранение. Например кровать можно сделать на такой платформе, а пространство под спальным местом использовать для хранения подушки и постельных принадлежностей или даже дополнительного матраса.

  1. Используйте пространство рядом с дверью, чтобы организовать хранение нужных мелочей.


(Ledges from West Elm)

Добавляя двадцати или тридцати сантиметровый выступ рядом с Вашей дверью или открытой прихожей позволят Вам получить место для хранения разных мелочей, например книги и маленьких статуэток или ключей. В комнатах такое решение позволит Вам хранить вещи, в которых Вы не нуждаетесь на регулярной основе как зарядка, кабели или пульт от телевизора или книга. На таких полках удобно хранить некоторые фотоальбомы или записную книжку с важными делами.

  1. Надстройте лофт и используйте пространство под ним.


(Loft Building project by Skeppsholmen)

Старое понятие двухъярусной кровати было невероятным в решении проблем маленькой комнаты... но давайте пойдём дальше и перестроим его! Представьте, что второй уровень спального места остался, а внизу Вы можете обустроить мягкую зону или систему хранения или даже рабочую зону, добавив стол и кресло. Если у Вас однокомнатная квартира - пространство ниже может быть использовано как гостиная, обеденная зона или целый шкаф гардероба.

  1. Используйте углы и встраивайте туда стол или рабочее место.

КУПИТЬ

Есть много вещей, которые Вы можете сделать с угловым пространством. Вы можете сделать шкаф в пол, чтобы хранить длинные или редко нужные вещи, для уборки или спортивный инвентарь: лыжи, набор для игры в гольф или теннисные ракетки. Если Вы хотите поступить проще - сделайте небольшой выступ с ящиком, чтобы использовать в качестве небольшой рабочей зоны для Вашего ноутбука и незабудьте о маленьких и мягких диванах, как этот.

  1. Сделайте выступ над Вашим диваном, для фотографий, элементы декора или поделки.

Сделать комнату выглядеть стильной и комфортабельно - все ещё задача номер один, чтобы чувствовать расслабленность и удовольствие от нахождения в ней. Добавление декоративных элементов может быть проблемой если нет поверхностей, чтобы их поставить. Поэтому нужно продумать их так, чтобы они были, но их почти не было видно. Маленькие вазы, памятные вещи, рамки для фотографий и т.п. - приятные мелочи можно запросто разместить сзади дивана на специальной поверхности или над диваном, но главное, чтобы Вы не ощущали чувства, что эта поверхность или предметы "давят" на Вас сзади или сверху.

  1. Открытые полки на кухне.

(Kitchen Shelves Designed by Liz Kamarul)

Часто есть одна или две поверхности стен в небольшой кухне ни чем не заняты, а ведь их можно интересно обыграть, утановив красивые полки из дерева или металла для хранения кухонных принадлежностей. Более того, отсутствие шкафов в маленькой кухне с открытыми полками даёт пространству ощущение функциональности и стиля. Это отличное место для хранения банок, кружек и круп. А если к нижней полке приделать крючки - можно хранить чашки, половник и различные лопатки.

  1. Купите декоративные коробки и расставьте их вокруг.

Ключ к созданию уютной небольшой квартиры, выглядящей опрятной и стильной, это когда у каждой вещи есть “свой дом и место”. Купить декоративные коробки или симпатичную корзину, чтобы хранить там разные мелочи может стать самой гениальной идеей, а если их интересно сложить в ряд или друг на друга, придаст Вашей комнате отличный штрих.

  1. Отдайте предпочтение многофункциональной мебели.

Когда покупаете мебель, всегда пытайтесь выбрать такую, что можно было её использовать как разные предметы интерьера: например стол, который можно использовать как место для сидения, такой как Versa Table от Ambient Lounge. Хороший пример использует стол с ящиками как обеденный стол, таким образом, Вы можете сохранить подставки для столовых приборов и столовые приборы под ним. Диваны-кровати - яркие примеры мульти - функциональной мебели. Но не стоит выбирать просто многофункциональную мебель - она должна дарить удовольствие.

  1. Создавайте акцент с более уютной мебелью, чем с огромными тяжёлыми диванами

Обустраивая небольшие пространства не используйте огромные кресла и тяжёлую мебель. Они отнимают слишком много полезной площади, их тяжело перемещать и могут просто "убить" пространство с точки зрения дизайна. Используйте легкие элементы дизайна, в том числе и мебель, такую как Ambient Lounge - мягкие и прочные ткани легко обслуживать, а за счёт уникального дизайна и формы Вы получаете полноценную мебель для жизни: например модульный диван - он легко разъединяется в кресла и собирается в огромный сет за минуты.

  1. Используйте винтажные ящики и сундуки как столики и место для хранения. 


Ambient Lounge Twin Couch Sofa - Eco Weave

Есть несколько опрятно выглядящих деревянных комодов или старинных сундуков, которые можено найти на блошиных рынках или ярмарках, в том числе проводимых в ARTPLAY. Они будут очень полезны, чтобы сохранить вещи: постельное бельё, полотенца, халаты и другие. Если Вы думаете, что они могут быть слишком большими, попробуйте поставить их вертикально, так Вы сэкономите место и получите место для хранения.

The installation of TV ‘lounge’ areas at some dick Smith stores has proven a winner with customers. Watching the latest 3D movie whilst being embraced by an Ambient Lounge beanbag seems to really put them in the mood for buying. Not only did they often walk out with a new TV, many then got on the Ambient Lounge website to order their Evolution Sofas or Studio loungers to complete their viewing experience.

Testimonial from Molly the dog

Hi, I am Molly. I am a 7yr old Staffy/Bully cross that is adored by my family. My favourite pastime (besides sleeping in my new Ambient Lounge Pet Lounge) is to play catch with my orange Frisbee. Sometimes I have to remind my family it's Frisbee time and show them where it is kept. I can leap pretty high to catch it and of course I have to give it a few chews before I it in front of my mum or dad, to throw it again. I love walks, other dogs, and oh..people. I like meeting new people and I am very friendly. I spend most of my mornings basking in the sun, chasing birds and being my mum's shadow. For Christmas I got a new Ambient Lounge Pet bed, which I love as much as my Frisbee...did someone mention Frisbee!!! love Molly

Summer, Skyline and the St. Kilda festival

Designer Bean bags are great in so many Interior or outdoor environments, but this weekend there will be Ambient Lounge bean bags spread out on the rooftop at some of the most exclusive parties at Melbourne's St. Kilda Festival. It's this time of the year that our staff loves. Great music, warm weather, sunsets and beach culture all combine for long relaxed nights of entertainment and make our work lives seem just that little bit more distant. Kinda like we are on holiday every night of the week. Play hard this weekend and enjoy St. Kilda festival. Here's a preview of something you might see (if you're lucky)

Ambient Lounge bean bags at the Australian Open Tennis: Game, Set, Relax.

20 Янв 2012

If you have been one of the hundreds of thousands of tennis spectators that have already graced Rod Laver arena this week the chances are you might have wandered around the beautiful outside areas set up by Australian Open Tennis Organisers.

It's a simply fantastic event at one of the world's most aethetically pleasing sporting viallages and normally co-oncides with Melbourne's best weather. What a way to watch the likes of Tomic, Federer, Nadal, Djokovich, Hewiit, Serena Williams, Ivanovich (always a favourite for our male staff) and "Aussie" Kim Clisters.

This year Ambient Lounge bean bags have teamed up with one of the big tournament sponsors (Heineken) to give revellers the ultimate experience by providing lots of Elements bean bags in the VIP and big screen tennis watching areas. The feedback has been immensely positive!

There's scarcely a time that one of our Supernova Studio Loungers or Evolution sofas are available - because people tend to get them early and claim them for the day. "These bean bag are absolutely amazing" we were told by the flag-bearing crew that lined the front row of the main stage area, as they kicked back with a beer in the sunshine and watched the Aussie band "The Whitlams" play a set on the lawn. Not a bad monday afternoon really! ... 

For those that saw our bean bags and did not get a chance to enjoy them, it's easy to own one for your own home and sit back and watch the rest of the sporting calendar on the balcony or in your home Cinema room. Please check out the range of products available here on our Ambient Lounge Australia website.

The bean bags that you saw at the Australian Open tennis are Studio Lounger in Supernova fabric.

For those corporate sponsors and marketing companies that wish to brand up some bean bags products for sporting events, music festivals, beach parties, surfing events, outside cinemas, product launches, gaming tournaments etc... please contact us and we will help make your event a massive success - while passing on a little 'coolness' to your brand. Bean bags are the ultimate 'active' signage for events and parties.

Please call our office on 1300 707 121 for more details and ask to speak to our sponsorship manager Gary.

Bean bags replace desks as traditional schooling gets a facelift - Herald Sun (Melbourne)

07 Дек 2011

Melbourne's most read newspaper, the Herald Sun has today outlined that bean bag furniture could be the way forward for progressive school and actually contribute to a higher learning environment.

Evonne Barry writes: "CLASSROOMS across the state are being super-sized, as traditional schooling is given a facelift. Formal rows of desks are increasingly being replaced with couches and bean bags in primary and secondary schools" . Education experts are lauding the evolution of "flexible classrooms" such as the new facilities at Auburn primary school. Auburn's Principal Marcia Lane said combining year levels in a less formal setting had academic and social benefits.

Bean bags such as the Ambient Lounge Evolution allow the students to sit up in a naturally attentive position and facilititates a less formal way of learning for the children. This allows them to stay motivated for longer and generally makes school more fun.

Sura the fluffy white Dog loves her new pet Bed .... (in her owner's words)

16 Окт 2011

Our girl Sura is just loving her bed. They are fantastic. Easy to move around and look great & big bonus of being able to remove the fur cover on top. Just had someone comment about her photos I've put on Facebook and ask where we

got the lounge, so I've sent her your details. They are really good quality and excellent size. Thought I'd send a photo of her enjoying her new pad.

 

 

Thanks again.

Maverick “The Beanbag Destroyer” can't conquer our Pet Lounge bean bed.

28 Сен 2011
автор

Meet Maverick, a 2 year old American Staffy who just loves ripping  beanbags apart for the sheer enjoyment of watching those little beans fly everywhere and diving into them like a toddler would in a pool of plastic balls at a play centre.  As you can see in the photo, it’s a bit of a guilty pleasure taking great delight in partaking in something that he knows is all so wrong (and who could be mad at those sorry puppy eyes).

Armed with the knowledge of his past escapades and penchant for polystyrene beans, this smelt like a challenge to us. If we gave Maverick an Ambient Lounge dog bed, what would he do with it?  Would it survive? And if it did, for how long?  Surely not! The last beanbag only lasted a few days!

 

Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.....

Get a Bean Bag armchair ride into the AFL footy finals this September

13 Сен 2011
автор

We're footy mad at the Ambient Lounge office in Melbourne (both the guys and the girls) and it just happens to be a year where all of our staff's teams are in the finals mix with a shot at the flag. If we can't get to the games we plan to set up the big screen TV, the surround sound and lounge out on our designer bean bags with a brew or two sitting atop the Versa Table. There is simply no better seat to watch the footy finals unless you are sitting on the MCG sidelines! If you ask us, this beats a corporate box anyway (and is a hell of a lot cheaper!) and we love being armchair critics without the hassle of squeezing your way through a crowd for overpriced snacks and the prospect of 2 hours trapped in a carpark afterwards ..

So the long season of disparity between top half and bottom half of the ladder is almost over and the AFL heavyweights are finally about to clash in the much anticipated AFL finals series. Collingwood are the clear powerhouse and the magpie army of fans are already claiming back-to-back flags … but the reality is that on their day that any of the top 5 or so sides can beat one another so this will put the finals in a pressure cooker spin. Remember Geelong in 2008 when they only lost one game for the season and lose the Grand Final with poor kicking? Still, it's hard to see Collingwood beaten when their list contains such strength in every department let by midfield generals Pendlebury, Swan and the much improved Thomas. Anything can happen on the day though. Hawthorn have re-emerged this year with extra depth and an exciting fast-paced game of precision football led by the giant of the game Lance 'Buddy' Franklin and the lightning footed Cyril Ryoli, both of aboriginal origin.

The Cats are still there playing their ever-so consistent brand of football with old wise heads that know how to win when it counts and play 15 minutes of 'burst footy' to blow teams away. Steve Johnson and Jimmy Bartel might now be senior citizens in the AFL but they still have the fire for a flag. West Coast are the big surprise of the year coming from a pathetic last in 2010 to explode into the top 4 this year. Having the best ruck duo in the competition (Dean Cox and Nick Natanui) means that a high % of the time their improved midfields get first use of the ball and this means they can be dangerous in September.

Carlton need to come from outside the double chance and have got the 'other bald genius' in Chris Judd and some real pace around the contests with their little men… but might be found out against tall marking forwards. Of the rest, well it's hard to see any of the teams stringing three final wins together against the leagues best but you know that the Saints and the Swans in particular will fight hard an make any opposition team earn a win.

So, bring it on! Let's see the elite vs the elite…. Let's see some close, tough games and let's ride every bump from the comfort of our Butterfly Sofas ;)
