Imagine yourself newly married and moving into your very own apartment. Your first reaction would be a combination of utter shock and frustration upon seeing a nearly bare interior with just a beat up couch and an old dining table which is crying out for repairs. The floor is dusty and the toilet is not functioning. One thing that is certain is that there is a lot of work to be done. In addition there is a lot of furniture to be added to make the small apartment feels like habitable abode. This is the usual dilemma for newly-weds and young couples. Moving into a small apartment and making it function like a home for them and their upcoming children. Refurbishing a small space is quite a challenge as there are a few pre-fabricated furniture that are designed for it.
Currently there are offices and organizations that are hard at work in an effort to try and restore the art deco experience for the world. They are trying to restore homes and offices as well as state buildings so as to preserve this time in the history of our country. In there efforts they have discovered many items and things to use to restore and bring to life that time in history. For many it is important to keep the art deco interior design movement alive and well. It has lived on in one way or another in so many of us and for so long that we do not want to forget this time of the 20s and 30s when so much was happening with small apartment furniture.
Studio apartments are recent phenomenon and are intended for singles, professionals and students who cannot afford expensive big apartments. Since the room is small, space is the biggest problem. Studio apartments are meant for giving comfort to the inhabitants. Those who want to have some style added to the room can change the layout of the room by arranging the furniture in different ways. What makes studio apartments differ from other living arrangements? The basic feature is a big room only. It has no separate kitchen, bedroom or a living room. It is hence not possible to set a single room with furniture usually used at a typical home.
I needed as much space as possible, and I liked it all bare and minimal. Any type of furniture was unwelcome in my humble abode, this included door furniture, regular furniture, and decorative furniture. I was like that for almost as long as I could remember, but one day it had to change. I had hooked up with someone and one thing led to another, and the next thing I knew she moved in with me. It was all good except until that very moment she stepped into my apartment and told me how I could live like this, life all bare and boring. I said I liked it this way and it looked clean, and that was the start of our first major fight.
The term art deco did not really get used during the heyday of the actual design use. It was derived from a term that was coined in 1925, but did not really begin to be used until 1968 when it appeared in a book that was written at the time. It is something that is as one would say a word that came about because of an observation later on in time. It was while World War II was going on that the art deco movement came to a stop. Since so many people in the west were now able to get all of the items that were needed in order to take part in this art deco interior design movement. This was because as opposed to having a signature piece or design the items being used were being mass produced and at a fraction of the original cost, making it the design of every man, not just he elite and rich with small apartment furniture.
The sections which are kitchen dinning, living and bedrooms when are decided about, means you have done half of your task. Judge the total area of each section in the room and then start looking for suitable furniture. To design the kitchen, keep in mind that its better to make the corner a kitchen and use a simple cooking table. You need some space on the top or the table for work. Cabinets are not very appropriate to be used so better buy shelves or cupboards. Keep the crockery and appliances minimum possible. Since you dont have lots of space, a sofa-cum-bed at the living area will be perfect. A folding table can also be used there. This table can serve many purposes. If there are boxes you have, they can work as tables. Cover the box with a table cover and it will not even sense if you have used a box instead of a table. The bed room must be separated with the help of separator or curtains. Floating beds save you space and so does ceiling beds. Get one of your choices.
