Four-room apartments are an excellent housing option for large families. They are characterized not only by a functional layout, but also make it possible to conveniently accommodate all residents in the house, taking into account their needs and providing them with individual space.
To make an apartment cozy and beautiful, you need to be able to rationally use its rooms. Appropriate design is of great importance, but it is often difficult to do this in large rooms.
Features of the
Owners of luxury apartments often have to reduce in one place and expand in another square meters. Therefore, the issue of housing planning always remains relevant. At the same time, the owners of large apartments have all the possibilities for arranging and organizing rooms.
So, for example, by zoning a 4-room apartment, you can not only achieve an improved layout, get comfortable living conditions, but also make a lot of design ideas come true.
Moreover, each room should be unique and consistent in the same style, since the main task of modern planning is convenience and beauty.
All four-room apartments are characterized by their own individual project, the arrangement of rooms in them is not standard. Sometimes it depends on what kind of building the housing is in: a panel, brick house or a new building.
In new buildings, the four-room apartment has an excellent layout, all the rooms are separate, there are no walk-through rooms, high ceilings and a large kitchen with a loggia. Often, the plan of such houses also includes a small pantry located between the kitchen and the hallway.
But if you dismantle a small-sized pantry, then you can expand the kitchen area and make additional space in it for the dining room.
The layout also depends on the characteristics of the walls in the house, for example, it is recommended to insulate the brickwork, and in panel houses it is necessary to install hydro and sound insulation.
How to make a layout?
An apartment with 4 living rooms at first glance may seem like a chic place for a large family to live, but sometimes even its free space can cause a number of inconveniences. For example, many are not satisfied with the shape of the hallways (often the room looks like a narrow and long room), the wrong message between the kitchen and the living room, or the absence of a separate bathroom.
In order to fix all this, you need to make changes to the typical layout of housing, this will not only help to organize the space as much as possible, but also make the rooms cozy.
At the same time, it is important not to forget that each room in the house is unique and performs certain functions, therefore, its design must be treated individually. Considering all these features, the layout of a four-room apartment can be carried out as follows:
This room is the "face" of the owners of the house, therefore it should look accordingly, but in most apartments it cannot please with its dimensions. Traditionally, this is an elongated and long room, in which it is not only difficult to arrange furniture, but also to complete a design.
To fix such a construction error, it is enough to make a small adjustment, namely, to divide the hallway into two zones: the entrance and the hall … In the first zone, it is recommended to place a built-in wardrobe for clothes, a hanger, and in the corridor to create a relaxing atmosphere, you can put an armchair or a soft pouf.
A good option for the hallway will also be zoning in the form of original wall, ceiling and flooring. The mezzanine will also help to visually partition the area of the room.
A wardrobe is considered a traditional type of furniture in the hallway, as it provides storage of all things, clothes, and also harmoniously fits into the overall interior.
If the corridor is wide, then stylish sections or other multifunctional structures can be placed in it on both sides of the walls. Thus, the room can easily accommodate the clothes of all family members, an ironing board and a vacuum cleaner.
As a rule, many people live in a four-room apartment, so the kitchen should have a place not only for storing various equipment, but also for a large number of dishes.
Traditionally, in multi-room apartments, the size of the kitchen is poor, so the right solution in this situation will be to rebuild the room, after which it takes on a U-shape.
It is much more convenient to place a kitchen table in such a room, and a wide window sill can serve as an additional place to create a dining area.
Recently, designers have also recommended combining kitchens with living rooms. For this, the wall is demolished and a sliding partition or a double door is installed. Such a transformation not only makes the room cozy, but also expands the functionality of the room.
It is the largest room in the apartment.
The main task in planning this room is considered to be the correct organization of the space, which would make it possible to comfortably meet guests and hold family holidays.
In addition, no one will refuse to have dinner with their loved ones in a warm atmosphere. It is advisable to distribute the zones in the living room in such a way that it can turn into a chic place to relax at any time. Wide swing doors are used as a divider between the dining room and the living room.
Children's room and bedroom
Conventionally, these rooms can also be divided into separate zones. So, for example, a bedroom will be well complemented by a study. To create comfortable conditions for work, you need to install hinged structures in the room, they will save usable space and serve as an excellent corner for storing things.
The same applies to the children's room, it is similarly possible to allocate a place for study and rest, while the working area is best placed by the window. Special children's corners, consisting of a bed, a wardrobe and a desk, also look good indoors.
As a rule, a four-room apartment has a separate bathroom, except for houses of old buildings. In "Stalin" and "Khrushchev" buildings, the bathroom is small and combined with a bathtub, so in this case you have to face many problems.
In order to compactly arrange plumbing and furniture, it is recommended to mount a corner bath or a small shower in such bathrooms.
You can also move the doorway out of the kitchen and expand the room. If the combined bathroom has a large area, then no changes in the apartment will have to be done, hanging cabinets will conveniently be placed on the walls, and the curbstones can be additionally decorated with beautiful candles and soap.
In multi-room housing, this space can be either separate or combined with an adjacent room. Due to the large size of the apartment, many experiments can be done with the design of the loggia. For example, a loggia looks good, smoothly turning into a living room.
This option is often chosen for apartments in "Khrushchev", where all the premises are small.
Using various design tricks, you can put chairs, a sofa in place of the loggia and thereby easily expand the living room area, making it cozy and light.
The only exception will be four-room apartments in series 97 houses, where the load-bearing walls are not reinforced and cannot be demolished.
All of the above recommendations for the layout of rooms can be supplemented with other design ideas, since a four-room apartment opens up huge opportunities in choosing a style. Thanks to the chic assortment of finishing materials and beautiful furniture models, any apartment, regardless of its area, can become a real paradise for a family, which will not be ashamed to show to guests.
For a competent planning of housing, you must first draw a draft of the rooms, and then, according to the drawings and dimensions, decide which of the transformation methods is most suitable.
Recently, when designing multi-room apartments, most owners prefer to use a single style. And this is not in vain. The same texture and color will allow not only to make smooth transitions between rooms, but also help to fill the interior of the apartment with real home warmth.
