Tu sửa lại căn hộ nhỏ tại Madrid

Small places can also be beautiful and pleasant. In fact, it could more inviting and warm just because of its small dimensions. For example, let’s take a look at this beautiful place in Madrid. The design was created by Paloma Martínez Gil, Argensolacuatro Architecture Study. What you see here is actually a redesign and restructure of an already existing house.

The original place had a small living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen. The space available was limited and there wasn’t anything drastic that the designers could do. The changed made were regarding the distribution of the rooms and the interior décor.


The new rooms were airy and created the impression of a larger space. The windows were replaced with larger ones that completely changed the perspective and let in more natural light. The floor was divided into two areas, night and day, two almost symmetrical spaces. The living room, dining room and the kitchen represent one area while the private rooms are on the other side. They are two independent spaces and in order to create this division the walls had to be removed and repositioned.

As you can see, just because a house or apartment has a certain design this doesn’t mean you have to live with it the rest of your life even though you wish it was different. You can always make changes according to your preference and this is long-term change that will contribute to a pleasant family life.{found on micasarevista}

Chọn đồ đạc hợp lý nhất cho nhà nhỏ

Thời nay ngày lại càng nhiều người than phiền về căn hộ với không gian nhỏ và nhiều hạn chế của họ. Cho dù bạn mua nhà hay thuê nó, nhà, căn hộ, nhà thuê hay phòng ở cũng đều phải tính đến không gian nhỏ. Và tất cả những điều này đều liên quan đến giá bất động sản.

Nếu bạn ở trong một không gian nhỏ, chẳng có  lý gì mà bạn lại chịu bị giam cầm trong đó như thể đây là vấn đề mọi ngưuời đều gặp phải. Việc bạn thực sự cần làm bây giờ là chọn những đồ dùng hợp lý nhất với không gian nhỏ đó sao cho căn nhà trông có vẻ được thiết kế ra hồn, và bạn có thể sống thoải mái ở đó.

Let’s explore some of the tips that shall help you to choose best furniture for small spaces –

1) To begin, start with the selection of lightweight and modern furniture that is compact and unobtrusive. Basically, these types of furniture would be the ones that are low to the ground and feature simple and straight lines. In addition, also try to choose furniture with legs as light will be allowed to travel, and the room shall appear spacious. Furniture pieces that allow light to travel through them are also a good selection. For instance, glass furniture.

2) Most of the people make the common mistake of picking up a bunch of small pieces to decorate small spaces. However, this is completely wrong as it gives way to cluttered look, and the space gets broken up. Instead of a bunch of pieces, select few (two or three) furniture pieces of a large profile. Large furniture pieces will allow the eye to move slowly across the room and will create the feeling of spaciousness.

3) Selection of wall mounted furniture for small spaces is also a terrific option. This takes less space and also frees the floor space. A wall mounted desk, a wall mounted dining table, and a wall mounted console are some popular options of the wall mounted furniture. If mounting is not the right solution for you, consider folding tables and chairs that can be folded when not in use to create extra space.Alternatively, you may also settle for furniture with wheels or simply add wheels to your furniture pieces. This will make the furniture pieces more functional.

4) When choosing furniture for small spaces try and select the pieces in monochromatic color tones. Monochromatic color scheme is made of basic color tones in varied hues. If you have already purchased furniture, then consider investing in slip covers.

Đi thuê nhà

Lâu rồi không đi thuê nhà, đi thuê mới thấy lại bị hớ, bao kinh nghiệm ngày trước mà không chịu thuộc:

– Đi xem nhà phải từ 2 người trở lên

2 người sẽ bổ sung cho nhau, một người nói chuyện làm lạc hướng chủ nhà, người kia quan sát, tìm tòi, sau đó đổi vai. Cái này quan trọng lắm nhé. Hôm nọ mình đi xem, cả 2 cùng quây lấy chủ nhà hỏi thăm, sau rồi mới phát hiện ra mải nghe chủ nhà nói, không đo nên cái phòng họ kêu 25 m2 thực chất chỉ có 18m2, merde chứ, hầu như nhà cho thuê nào cũng hét vống cái kích thước lên, được 20m2 đúng đã là thiên đường rồi.

– Đi xem nhà nên đi ban ngày, có quay trở lại xem qua vào ban tối
Đi xem ban ngày thì còn có ánh sáng, biết nhà hướng nào (cái này có thể mang la bàn hoặc GPS đi xem, hoặc giờ có google earth cũng suy ra được nhưng mà vẫn không bằng), biết nhà có thoáng không.. Ban tối quay lại ngó qua xem khu đó có ồn không, buổi tối mọi người thường đi làm về nên nhiều khu nhà ban ngày rất thoáng, đến tối chật chội, không có chỗ lách vào vì xe cộ để chật cả lối đi. Ngoài ra còn hàng xóm ầm ĩ…

– Nói chung không nên thuê ngay sau khi xem xong trừ trường hợp hoàn hảo như mơ. Nhà nào cũng có cái không được, xem xong về cân nhắc rồi mới thuê sẽ tốt hơn. Nói chung chẳng có nhà nào cho thuê ngay được đâu mà phải lo.

– Ngó kỹ đồ dùng trong nhà. Mình mới bị một vố. Đi xem kỹ lưỡng, nhà mới xây xong, cửa sổ kiểu Euro Windows mới cóng còng còng nên không để ý. Giờ về mới phát hiện ra là cái cửa đó đóng vào, khóa vào rồi, đẩy nhẹ là bật ra. TSKM nhà nó.

– Chủ nhà khoe cái gì cũng phải kiểm tra (cái này thay cho câu trên nữa). TSKM chứ, hôm nọ hỏi chủ nhà là phơi đồ ở đâu, nó bảo trên sân thượng có thoải mái chỗ cho em. Yên tâm tưởng giống nhà cũ, cả 1 tầng để phơi đồ. Đặt tiền nhà rồi lên mới thấy nó xây thêm 2 phòng trên đó, còn lại, chỗ hành lang, nó mắc 4 sợi dây song song cao chót vót trên nóc, nghĩa là mấy cái phòng tầng trên đi đi lại lại sẽ chui qua đống quần áo mà mình phơi. Ngó xuống từng tầng, hóa ra trên hành lang nó cũng phơi thế. Ngu đek chịu được, hành lang thì kín, phơi thế nước rỏ tong tong, mà phơi thế, đứa ở nhà ngoài nó tức nó chọc quần áo một tẹo thì toi đời nhà ma.

Đừng bảo anh khó tính, cứ thuê mới biết, những cái nhỏ nhặt nhưng mà mình tiếp xúc với nó hàng ngày, không tử tế hoặc khó chấp nhận thì sẽ ớn dài dài đấy.

Ý tưởng tiết kiệm không gian tuyệt vời cho căn hộ nhỏ

Christian Schaller là  một nhiếp ảnh gia sống tại một căn hộ rất thú vị ở Barcelona.  Căn hộ trông rất xinh xắn cho dù thực sự nhỏ, chỉ tính theo mét vuông, hoàn toàn không đủ để sinh sống. Nhưng vì Barcelona là một thành phố châu Âu rất cổ, người ta phải đấu tranh để có được từng cm để sinh sống và mọi thứ đều rất đắt đỏ.

Cho nên hầu hết các nhiếp ảnh gia đều thích sống trong các căn hộ rất nhỏ, có cửa sổ mở ra sân thượng và theo cách đó họ đã được sống trong một thành phố lớn với chi phí nhẹ nhàng hơn. Tôi biết có nhiều cách để tiết kiệm không gian nhưng lần này thực sự là tôi phải thú nhận là hết sức ấn tượng. Khi bạn bước vào căn hộ nhỏ đó lần đầu, trông nónhư một gian phòng trống với mọi thứ trên tường đều được ốp gỗ. Nhưng nếu bạn có cơ hội ở lại vài phút nữa thôi, bạn sẽ nhận ra thực sự căn phòng có đủ mọi thứ của một căn hộ, chỉ là chúng được cất giấu rất khéo trong tường, đằng sau những tấm gỗ ốp.

Everything is very well automatized and you only need to put some pressure on a certain panel and it will immediately open, allowing you access to what’s inside: the fridge the little kitchen, the small bathroom, etc. The whole kitchen is hidden under a panel, but once you open it, you can see it has everything you need, including a sink and a cooker. The bed goes under a hidden wall that goes onto the roof and what’s left inside looks like a small sofa.

The TV set is secured to a wall and you can position it any way you want. There is a table that can be folded so as to fix in on the wall when you don’t need it and there is also a small glass shower cabin. It’s very easy to reach all the things in the room and to store the clothes in a hidden wardrobe. Actually this small apartment has everything you need, but you don’t see it as they are not on display, but occupying every bit of space. Great ideas and also great design.

Oh my god, how I love this design


Spacious and warm apartment in Helsinki

Now, when I am looking at this spacious apartment from Helsinki, I am trying to imagine how it would look unfurnished. It would be a spacious place, with white walls, high ceilings, big windows that allow natural light in, and wooden floors. That’s all. So, I have to admit that furniture and decorative objects have a major importance in embellishing it. Since the entrance, we can see that this place is decorated with discreet objects, like the minimalistic picture above one door, and two pigeons that seem to fly inside the hall.

This 130 square meters apartment breaks any pattern of a modern home, because inside, the owners preferred to decorate their living space with a massive wooden table and a fireplace in the back of one lower shelf decorated as well with a stuffed bird. Beneath and in the right side of the fireplace we will see lots of cut pieces of wood that are a magnificent design for the entire room. It is the first time in my life when I see two opposite design styles put together in the same place: minimalism and rustic style, and I have to admit that the result is great, even unexpected.

The kitchen is also a big, open space, but here we see only a modern style, because the owners decorated it with the latest appliances, and a minimalist drawing on the wall. I have noticed that the bedroom is very simple accessorized but connected with the dressing room. The bed is the main piece of furniture, and additional to it are some cozy chairs and a sort of table that sits a globe. In my opinion, all the wood and natural materials are providing warmth in the otherwise minimalistic space, creating a really nice and cozy atmosphere.{found on site}.

White apartment in Madrid with a pink sofa in living room

This beautiful apartment is located in Madrid and it recently got a complete makeover. At the same time, it also got s fresh white interior. The visual impact is very strong. Also, the fact that all the walls, ceilings and overall design of the apartment is white makes this place function as a blank canvas. This way everything placed in there such as furniture or accessories will instantly become a focal point of attention.The apartment has a large living room that seems even bigger with all the white in there. The living room has a colorful sofa with dusty purple upholstery that creates a sophisticated atmosphere. It has beautiful cushions and the entire room has colorful accessories throughout. The rest of the apartment has similar decors.

When the current owners bought this place it was in poor condition. However, they were able to see the potential and all the possibilities this apartment offered. It was a 70 square meter apartment with inviting rooms. The renovation was drastic and the apartment got a completely new look. The project was commissioned by Mariano Ibanez and the interior was designed by Critina Ros de la Vega.

Even though white is obviously the dominant color on the apartment, it’s not it that strikes the eye. It’s all the other colorful details that are eye-catching. The renovation started with the wooden beams in the roof. These were painted and thus the space became higher. The walls and the floors were then painted white as well. All the other colorful elements add intensity to the rooms and break the monotony.{found on micasarevista}.
