Open doors: an apartment of 21 square meters with red details

In Decoesfera we are always looking for tricks to make better use of space, so today I bring you a 21 square meter apartment with red accents in which nothing is missing. As you can see in the photo, the space is divided into two heights, with the bed at the top.

To access the bed, which has been located in a loft, a wooden and metal staircase has been used that matches the rest of the white and Nordic wood decoration that we like so much. Just below it we have halogens that provide light to the sofa under the bed.

The kitchen takes advantage of the last available centimeter, extending the furniture on the door with what they can use the ceiling in all its height. The combination of light wood with colored tiles gives it a very youthful air although for my taste it breaks with the style of the rest of the apartment, much more sober.

Look how they created a impact corner under the bed, using a black and white wallpaper that does not visually overwhelm due to its use in such a small space. A success has been that they have not put pictures here because between the ceiling is lower with the bed and the somewhat reloaded paper would have been too baroque.

Observe how the bed light is achieved through a apply on the wall that can be turned on and off without lighting the entire room, a great success when it comes to going out to the bathroom in the middle of the night for example. The problem of the bedside table has been solved with a wing that comes out on the side of the bed and looks like, although it is not well seen in the photo, that it is easy to store. In any case, the wing is so high that it sure does not hinder the passage, but it seemed to me to be a smart solution.

On these lines you have the dining area of the apartment. The table is screwed to the wall and is supported with only one leg, which gives a great feeling of lightness. On both sides we have two padded red armchairs They look very comfortable but somewhat difficult to wash in case there are unwanted stains.

We finish our tour on the last wall, on which television is located. Here they have dispensed with the low table and the device is hung on the wall. Under it, instead of a piece of furniture, they have placed a two-step staircase in which they place the decoration. On one side there is a guitar, which removes the storage problem and decorates, while on the other there are two photographs that fill the space and give a touch of personality to the room that on the other hand I see it a bit bland.

Does it convince you? The key to decorate such a small space and that is not noticed is to minimize the elements that we are going to use and, if we decide to use colors as blunt as red, to dose them so as not to visually overwhelm whoever enters the house.

There are businesses that are perfect. For aesthetics, for having a funny and easily remembered slogan, and for being located where they have to be, in an environment that is natural and with an audience eager to connect with them.

A curious and fun ice cream shop where they sell handmade fruit poles without dyes, preservatives or other artificial substances, famous already in Malasaña for the phrase 'Don't call me polo, call me Lolo'.
