How to create a successful small space or how to live happily within a tiny house? I have shared many ideas about cabins and small spaces as well as effective ways of room separations with room dividers but the internal layout and multifunctional interiors, especially for small footprint homes are always a challenge. Of course there is one luxurious way which one can choose and that is to go professionally custom build. Boom. Just kidding, ....
A minimalist bathroom design with clean lines and surfaces, all in order, nice and uncluttered but let’s be realistic there are many things that will end up in the space creating noise and clutter but it doesn’t have to be this way. If you find good storage solutions and ensure good access to them you can achieve that minimal feel in your space.
The name 'multi-functional room divider' sounds so boring even though it is a wonderfully adaptive design element which you can make truly yours while saving building costs. I have been talking about a multi-functional room divider a couple of times now, first converting a Victorian terrace floor plan, then in a modern home and lastly the divider separated the home office from the more private spaces in the same modern home. So I think it's time to work on some design options now!
Work is what we do and even though we are not just all about work, we most likely love what we do.
We tend to work from everywhere since our phones and tablets are mini command centres and working from home seems to be the direction to go, however that means a well-lit and thought-through space at home becomes more important. My modern home design with multifunctional room divider posted a couple of weeks back could be the perfect opportunity.
Yes, indeed it is the room divider from a few weeks back which I wanted to take and use it in a totally different context - this time probably all the other way around. Rather than adding it into a Victorian terrace house to open up the floor plan - I came up with a house design around the efficient room divider after my own heart. And the house couldn’t be more different compared to a Victorian terrace – a modern home with floor to ceiling windows facing east, south and west....
Everyone loves open plan - don't you?
I am a big fan too but you don't often see it in a traditional Victorian terrace house. A good open plan design offers so many great opportunities that come with one big open space that one can change every other month. Quite often though you want to entertain and separate your really private spaces from the ones you want to share with your loved ones. So here is my take on a simple one bedroom flat conversion to an open plan space with a room divider.
