The interior of "Khrushchev" in various styles

No matter how people’s demands on apartments changed, the “Khrushchev” remains a very common type of housing. To him willy-nilly have to adapt. As practice shows, this space with the whole mass of its shortcomings can be made quite comfortable and stylish.

Features of planning

"Khrushchev" have a whole set of layout features that make it difficult to live on such a living space. The architectural design of the Khrushchev era included small rooms, small kitchens, narrow corridors, combined bathrooms, and low ceilings. All this was inherited by the modern man, for whom, in order to live comfortably in such an apartment, there may not be enough repairs in the budget option.Sometimes you need a modernization, far beyond the level of economy.

Zoning features

The problem of "Khrushchev" are the features of the organization of living space. An apartment can be both three-room and four-room, but one of the rooms is passing, and therefore it is already losing its functionality. The living room can be at the same time someone's bedroom. A passing bedroom is no longer a bedroom.

Therefore, sometimes the only option to improve the quality of space - redevelopment. In the "Khrushchev" bearing - external walls. Internal partitions are not, there is room for transformation. Another thing is that such measures require consultation with architects and coordination with the relevant services.

Demolishing the walls and combining the premises sometimes creates new problems. Therefore, do not go to extremes. The same bathroom should remain in place. In the case of communal trouble in the new bathroom with the flow of the toilet, for example, you can flood the living room from below.

The unpleasant consequences of combining the room with the kitchen. On such redevelopment, as a rule, the owners of one-room or two-room apartments, where very very closely.With this combination, the space becomes larger, but steam from cooking is walking around the room, and fatty spots sooner or later reach places outside the former kitchen. The walls and furniture of the living room are impregnated with food smells.

Sensations of space can be achieved without having to break and carry something:

  • Choosing a wallpaper, it is better to prefer paintings with small patterns. Such ornaments visually expand the space and make it boring.
  • It is better to refuse screaming paints and dynamic patterns. If you want an accent in the room, it is better to highlight a certain functional area in bright color.
  • The remaining walls should remain in soothing colors.
  • Doors between adjacent rooms should preferably be arranged in the form of a folding screen. This allows you to combine space without depriving them of functionality.
  • When you decorate the rooms do not allow different styles in each of them. Otherwise, you will get a sense of chaos. The space in such an apartment will not be felt.
