Zoning of premises today occupies a special place in the layout of apartments, since with its help one large room can be divided into several functional zones without resorting to demolition or relocation of the main walls.

These styles are often associated with something expensive and luxurious. Classic rooms can resemble palaces with chic furnishings and finishes. Of course, the implementation of such interiors requires special costs. Real professionals are most often involved in interior design.
Some of the most popular classical styles are Baroque, Empire, English and Venetian. Each of them involves thinking through the interiors to the smallest detail.
Grace, luxury, luxury furniture, designer textiles and interior items - all these are classics that many are simply crazy about.
Today, modern styles are considered more in demand, since they reflect our dynamically developing world. Styles minimalism, futurism and high-tech do not accept anything old. They embody innovative technologies and keep pace with the times, and very often ahead of it.

We decorate rooms
If you have chosen the appropriate style in which you will decorate the apartment, look more boldly for ready-made projects or order a design version, because it will take into account all your wishes. Next, we will consider the basic recommendations for arranging a 2-room apartment, or rather, each room in it.
Hallway or corridor
As a rule, this is a small room, and it is located immediately after entering the apartment. Try not to clutter up this room, as it is already small. It is appropriate to put everything you need in the hallway.
The most up-to-date furniture are:
- wardrobe with mirror. It is best to choose multifunctional models from floor to ceiling.
- Bench. For purchase, models are recommended on which you can not only sit, but also store shoes in them or under them.
- If space permits, then you can put a small bedside table.
Also, in the hallway, special attention should be paid to lighting, since there are often no windows in this room. As for the individual accessories and textiles, it is very important to choose the right floor mat that will complement the overall interior.
If the walls are somehow empty, you can place paintings, family photos or a mirror.
After entering the apartment, households and guests immediately enter the living room or hall. Everything is standard here. There must be sofas, several armchairs, a coffee table and a TV. Of course, the classic model can be varied as you like. Variations of all kinds often depend on the style of the interior, but the furniture and appliances remain the same. The differences lie only in color and design.
If the living room is combined with the kitchen, then it makes sense to divide them using zoning. It can be done by using decorative partitions, which are available in a huge assortment, as well as by dividing wallpaper and floor coverings by color.
In such a room, it is very important to properly divide the cooking and relaxation area, as well as the dining area. Also, experts recommend taking care of a good kitchen hood so that third-party odors do not spread throughout the room.
Regardless of the style chosen, experts recommend decorating the kitchen in light colors, especially if there is not much space in it. Whites, milky and cream colors can visually enlarge the space, making it more cozy. It is better to choose laminate, parquet or tiles as flooring for combined rooms.
Lighting should also be correctly selected. In addition to the main sources, spotlights should be placed that can divide certain zones in the room.
If it is important for you to save space in a quality manner, it is best to pay attention to built-in furniture and various transforming tables that do not take up much space. In addition, a sofa bed can be placed in the living room.
A bedroom in a two-room apartment may not be very large, but it must necessarily have a sleeping place, a wardrobe for storing things, a dressing table and a workplace. Although it is not always possible to fit the office area in this room, as a result of which it is transferred to the balcony or to the living room.
If there is not enough space, then bedside tables should be placed as close to the bed as possible, and as a cabinet, choose a compact and small model, where most of the things will fit.
If desired, the TV can be hung in front of the bed.
As for the lighting, it will depend on the style. Nevertheless, bedside sconces are always in vogue, and soft spot lighting has not stopped anyone yet. Curtains, various textiles, rugs and accessories should be chosen based on the style in which you decorate the apartment. However, if the room is not very large, then it makes sense not to choose dark palettes as wallpaper and flooring, otherwise you risk getting a very gloomy bedroom, which will be uncomfortable.
It is the children's room that may differ from the general interior of the apartment, especially if the child is small. As a decoration, themed wallpapers can be used, for example, with princesses for girls or cars for boys. The flooring can be anything, but carpet is welcome.
The bed can be single or bunk for two children. In addition, a loft bed is now popular for purchase. The cabinet and work area are also required. It is desirable that there is no shortage of light in the room. It is very important to choose a comfortable writing desk for your child to work at.
The bathroom can be combined or separate. Even if it is separate, try to decorate both rooms in the same way, especially for walls and floors. And all the technique should be done in the same color and style.
If the rooms are small, then instead of a bath, purchase a shower cabin to save space for a washing machine. Above the washbasin in the bathroom, you can hang one large mirror or a mirror with sections for storing various small items.
In order for the design of a two-room apartment to be liked not only by households, but also by all guests, it must be both practical and well-chosen.
