Homes with an area of 40 square meters represent a very important segment of private housing construction. Layout of one-story and two-story houses with and without an attic with a total area of 40 sq. m is of quite reasonable interest. Therefore, you should definitely consider the plans for country houses in this area - both frame and built of timber.
Features of the
It may seem that the area is 40 sq. meters is "about nothing", and it is impossible to realize something decent on it. But this view is wrong. With a skillful approach, it is quite possible to "squeeze" a lot even from such a limited space. The feeling will definitely be more comfortable than in city apartments. Of course, everything must be carefully calculated.
Near a frame house with an area of 40 sq. m a tangible plus is environmental friendliness. However, to achieve it in full is possible only if a whole range of finishing and insulation materials is abandoned. In addition, it is imperative to carry out protective impregnations, which is not always easy and always costs money. Also, the frame is built relatively quickly. But buildings from a bar have their advantages:
- increased decorativeness;
- lower requirements for insulation.
Projects of one-story houses
Refusal of additional floors is a quite reasonable decision, most experts will confirm this. You can, in a similar way, allocate more space for each individual room. In a 10-meter bedroom, for example, it is quite convenient to spend the night hours or relax during the day. Another characteristic feature of a good layout of a summer cottage is:
- extensive kitchen and guest area;
- entrance hall and bathroom of the same area;
- an impressive terrace for summer leisure.
An alternative solution includes:
- kitchen-living room of 14 sq. m;
- bedroom with an area of 10 sq. m;
- hall with a size of 5.6 m2;
- small porch and bathroom.
Plans for two-story houses
Trying to find or create a floor plan for a 40 sq. m with a garage inside - it is completely pointless. And even clean two-story buildings with an area of 40 squares are completely impossible in architectural and engineering terms - as much as possible, we can only talk about adding a small attic. In this case, only two living rooms can be distinguished, one of which is a bedroom. A well-equipped basement helps to alleviate space constraints.
Compensation for the scarcity of internal space is also usually a solid porch.
Another option for a two-story house of 40 square meters implies the allocation of a kitchen-dining room and a guest area on the ground floor. The second tier is given entirely to bedrooms. The only exceptions are platforms for stairs, the size of which was tried to be minimized. The structure is crowned with a compact gable roof, which optimizes the use of interior space. During construction, you can choose a pile, strip or columnar foundation.
Interior decoration needs to be given no less attention than thinking over the location of the premises. Experts advise:
- with a limited bedroom area, store things in hanging cabinets, freeing up space for a bed;
- use hanging shelves and rails in the kitchen area;
- put a rack over the toilet;
- use a nautical or rustic design style.
Interior decoration in a small house may involve the active use of dark colors. A good example is shown in the photo:
- dark gray sofa;
- noble light brown floor;
- black kitchen corner;
- dark lilac wall.
The creation of a studio significantly expands the design possibilities. For example, you can use:
- moderately dark sofa;
- light carpet;
- noble wardrobe;
- high-gloss ceiling with spotlights and dark wood beams.
Another possible solution includes:
- delimitation of the kitchen-dining and sleeping areas using a desk;
- skillful use of spot and pendant lamps;
- corner light kitchen set;
- light beige walls.
