Room Layout A : Removing dead space in a large kitchen in Houston & playing with light
Despite its perfect size (400 sqf), the kitchen was pretty awkward. Probably due to some remodeling, the kitchen did not look like one large space. In fact, it looked more like 3 spaces where just nobody felt like to gather.
After studying the issue, Remanence Interiors created a solution improving the space, the light and the circulation.
This project is still in process. Stay tuned to discover the final result.
Room Layout B: Living, dining, office & kitchen in 25 sqm
We are in France, in Lyon. The 70 sqm apartment is located in a brand-new condo in the 6th arrondissement. The space in clearly new and does not have any kitchen. However, the plumbing is ready. As a consequence, the future owners have no other choice than respecting the layout. They wish they have a living, a dining, an office and a kitchen in their room layout.
Creating 4 different spaces in such a small space is quite a challenge.
To get more opportunities to add kitchen cabinets, we added an atelier partition. This atelier style wall lets the light illuminate the room. In the same time , it creates a very specific area dedicated to the kitchen.
The office is designed using the same cabinetry giving the room a coherent style.
The living area offers more room to entertain and a console table even gives the opportunity to have a dinner for 2 up to 8. In such a small area.
Room Layout C: Adding a room while transforming the layout
In this old early twenty century apartment you might be surprised how the space is separated in tiny areas.
In the specific case illustrated bellow, the dining room did not exist before we decided to remove 4 dead spaces: 2 cabinets, 1 pantry and 1 corridor.
Situated right between the kitchen & the living room, this area clearly stopped the circulation between those rooms. In fact, the room layout needed a refresh.
After the work was done, the owners enjoy a 42 sqm area allowing light entering the room east & west.
As a conclusion, if you only have to move your furniture, it is not a big deal. Improving your room layout will be easy. But in most situation, the whole room layout reveal several issues that must be fixed to get the ideal layout.
