Design of a small studio apartment with one window

Effective arrangement of a small space

As previously stated, it is of paramount importance to decide on the zoning of the room. That is, choose the zone into which it will be divided. Indeed, someone prefers to give preference to a spacious and bright living area, while someone wants to place several functional areas in it at once.

  • total living space;
  • the number of family members who will live in it;
  • the number of window and door openings;
  • the shape of the room;
  • the presence of a loggia or balcony;
