THESE KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS ARE LESS THAN 20 FEET, BUT THEY ARE FULL OF IDEAS

Do you have a small kitchen or bathroom? Do you want more space? These kitchens will give you ideas to open them to the living room and decorate them to make them appear larger. And the bathrooms, to have everything in the minimum space. They are reforms that are worthwhile

1. OPEN KITCHEN OF 5 M2 WITH MINI BAR

Open to the living room, this kitchen can be seen as soon as you enter the house. For this reason, the interior designer Julia Casals has avoided everything reminiscent of the kitchen: tiles and electrical appliances, which cannot be seen because they are paneled . The hood is one of the most “obvious” appliances, since it is at eye level and takes up a lot. That is why here it is embedded in the furniture.

A BAR WITH LOUNGE STOOLS

It is a bar made of treated oak wood and some leather and iron stools . For the bar, the worktop has been extended about 30 cm around the furniture. Sufficient space for breakfast or informal meals.

THE COLORS TO INTEGRATE THE KITCHEN INTO THE LIVING ROOM

The first rule is to use the same color in the kitchen as in the rest of the living room and for furniture, countertops and windowsill: the more neutral, the better they will be integrated. And add details that are reminiscent of the living room, connect it and so it feels bigger: like the picture on the wall.

2. A 4 M2 KITCHEN WITH A RUNNING BENCH

This mini kitchen even has an office area thanks to a running bench that rests on the back of the furniture. It runs along the entire wall and the seat structure hides some practical drawers.

THE DISTRIBUTION IS IN ‘U’ WITH ATTACHED OFFICE

The entire floor has 50 m 2 , hence the kitchen only has 4 m 2 of its  own, although it gives a much more spacious feeling as it is open to the living room. Interior designer Pia Capdevila has squeezed every cm with her ‘U’ distribution.

TIP: AVOID TALL FURNITURE

Everything is white except for the office table. The reason? Reflect the light that enters to the maximum and gain a feeling of space. The tiles are also shiny, which reflects even more light, and they only go up to half a height.

ALL WHITE AND LIGHT SO AS NOT TO FILL THE SPACE

There is no tall furniture. Not even the lamps interfere with the entry of light or the landscape. The tap, in the corner, allows the window to be fully opened. And the corridor wall, the longest and most concealed, is the one that has been arranged for storage.

3. A 6 M2 KITCHEN WITH A WINDOW TO THE LIVING ROOM

How to get that the interior kitchen of a low has so much light? In view of the image it is obvious: opening windows in the partitions. So did the architect Roger Bellera, architect of the reform of this ground floor dating from the 19th century. To better integrate the kitchen with the rest of the floor, there is no tiling. Only white and gray paint, and the hood is work.

PROJECTED IN ‘L’

The kitchen layout in ‘L’ is the most efficient. Column appliances release low drawer recesses. And the brightest corner has been left for a table that serves as an office and an extra work surface.

THE KITCHEN HAS GLASS WALLS

To avoid odors in the rooms and at the same time to be able to close the rest area, the architect opted to create ‘a glass box’ for the kitchen. In this way, there are no fumes, no odors, but plenty of light and a greater sense of space. 

The furniture is from Santos. The hood is built and the appliances are from Siemens.

4. A COMPLETE BATHROOM IN 5 M2

The owners of this bathroom wanted a bathtub for the children and a shower for the parents. The interior designers at Hoc Volo opted for this bathtub with a screen, comfortable for daily use and which also helps to add depth to the space. The flown vanity unit takes up less visually, although its drawers have a lot of storage space. The baskets are used to store towels.

A SQUARE BATHROOM

The walls are painted white and only the bathtub area is tiled. In addition, they have hung linen curtains instead of installing cabinets to hide the washing machine and storage shelves (next to the door).

5. A BATHROOM IN A 4 M2 LOFT

As the ceiling was very sloping and the owners wanted a bathtub and shower, the architect Ana Blanco placed the bathtub in the lowest area and left the highest one to stand in the shower or in front of the sink. Everything is white. This and the transparent screen help to make the space look wider and the ceiling, higher.

WITH SHOWER AND BATH

The architect opened a Velux window between beam and beam so that light filled the space, which is small, ventilated and at the same time the clarity and the views expanded it. The large tiles do not “divide” the walls so much and they make the space less.

6. A VERY DECORATED BATHROOM IN 5 M2

This narrow bathroom is an example of how the “complete” decoration changes everything and that is not incompatible with the lack of meters. It has wooden floors and a cozy wainscot; a custom-made piece of furniture that seamlessly integrates and a waterproof Gancedo wallpaper .

SMALL AND DIVIDED

Can’t separate the toilet in a small bathroom? Of course. In this, the interior designer Begoña Susaeta has raised a partition that gives it privacy. And it does not dwarf the space because it has no door and the toilet is blown up.

Open the kitchen to the living room, integrate it in such a way that it looks like one more corner of the living room, glaze it to gain depth but at the same time that the fumes do not go from here to there … You have just seen these ideas and many more in just three kitchens. And if we add the bathrooms, the guide of tricks to decorate small spaces well and visually expand them, grows even more. And there is a lot to do to renovate a small bathroom or kitchen and make a few meters become many in the eyes.

1. Use color: white always expands, but for connected spaces such as a kitchen open to the dining room , it is better to use the same range of colors, whatever it may be.

2. Glass is a good ally: glass walls help delimit without subtracting light or space.

3. Paneling, indisputable: in the case of open kitchens, paneling appliances must be a “yes or yes”. The idea is to reduce the kitchen air. And this is a foolproof formula.

4. Flown furniture: for small bathrooms is the best. The more ground we see, the more perception of spaciousness we will have.

5. Controlled tiling: nothing to raise them to the ceiling. They will be variegated. Anti-humidity paint is the best solution.

6. Light partitions: the less anchors and the more transparent they are, the larger we will perceive the bathroom.
