Research shows that those who work from home are normally happier and more productive. However, not all homes provide a conducive environment for working. So what makes a home perfect for working?
Let’s step into this stunning 2690-square foot home located in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and find out.
Shall we start with the living room?
The home is a product of Design ATO Studio. Its open living room features a large, white modern sofa and a unique coffee table. The coffee table is actually 3 pieces that fit together like a jigsaw.
The white colour scheme and large picture window make the living room feel larger horizontally. To add some artistic and modern feel to the room, a tastefully designed black reading chair is placed in one corner.
You don’t need walls when you can use contrasting floorings to separate the various spaces in the home. You also don’t have to clutter the living area with tons of mementos. A handful minimalist elements are just enough.
Moving from the living room and into the dining room, you won’t fail to notice a change in design elements.
The Dining Room
The modern dining area features Scandinavian style dining chairs. The overhead light fixture serves as the main centre of focus in the room. You can tell the personality of the owner of this home just by looking at the artwork.
The use of different patterns in the walls, ceilings, and floor makes the neutral spaces look exciting. Also noticeable is the careful use of color in the space, making the area feel more welcoming.
Before we move into the kitchen, let’s look at the informal eating area for a moment. This area seems to draw inspiration from the dining room if its modern chairs and decorative lighting is anything to go by.
