If you are a young family looking for a modest home design that can comfortably accommodate you, you can draw inspiration from this 78-square meter apartment located in RC Zhukoffskiy, Ukraine.
Christened Light and Blue by Tobi Architects, the home was designed for a young family with one child. The apartment houses two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen-living area, and a storeroom-laundry room.
A corridor with a sliding door splits up the private areas into two blocks. One block comprises a tranquil area of bedrooms with one bathroom. The second block makes a studio with an entrance group.
While the apartment’s owners are not so much into details, the designers capitalized on their creativity and thoughtfulness to ensure the apartment met the specific needs of its residents. For instance, a 5.4-square meter corridor features a seating area, a sizable mirror, and versatile hook shelves.
You can use the hook shelves for keeping stuff that needs temporary storage. They can also be excellent for leaving mail or keys. Another remarkable feature of the apartment is the built-in gray-blue cabinets, which combine the entrance section and the kitchen.
The cabinets feature a built-in refrigerator, a microwave (which so happens to be one of the best built-in microwaves), and oven. In the studio, we have a dining space, kitchen, and a cozy sofa bed that serves as a guest sleeper. The veranda features a comfy lounging area, which partly makes up for the small living room.
One of the two bathrooms measures only 2.4 square meters. Nonetheless, it encompasses a toilet, a shower, and a small wash-basin. What about the apartment’s color scheme?
The designers used a contrasting blend of white and brown marble, and black mixers. The family loves blue, so they had to include the color in every room.
It is also worth noting that there is a nursery, which contains a cot with drawers for laundry. So, if a second child comes, it is well taken of. There’s also a play area on the second floor. You can’t fail to notice the long desk that can comfortably fit two people.
