Layout of apartments

Any layout begins with determining the number of rooms and their location. In one-room apartments, an important aspect is the presence of a window or balcony and the location of the entrance. The decision on the placement of furniture and its location depends on these two factors.

In a two-room apartment, among other things, it is also important to know how the rooms are arranged. They may be:

  •         separate;
  •         checkpoints.

With a split layout, the distribution of interior details is most simple. If the layout is a checkpoint, then some difficulties arise. In such a room, it is difficult to make two separate spaces without redevelopment.

Three- and four-room apartments have a large area. In them, all rooms can be separate or partially separate. For a large family, this factor plays an important role. Let’s take a closer look at the layout options.

As already mentioned, the layout of an apartment is of great importance when choosing a future home. Buildings of different years of construction are distinguished by variations in the location of the premises, design solutions, and other features. By removing, or, on the contrary, erecting walls, it is possible to radically change the internal space, add comfort and useful space.

The layout of a one-room apartment assumes competent zoning and distribution of furniture. Each tenant must have their own rest/work area.

A procedure such as planning or redeveloping a one-room apartment allows for separate rules for dividing space into zones:

  •         the use of various building materials;
  •         choice of light shades for decoration;
  •         abandonment of massive chandeliers in favor of non-bulky lighting fixtures.

Layout and redevelopment of apartments

One of the popular solutions is the redevelopment of a one-room apartment into a two-room apartment. This option is most often chosen by young families when they have a child. The studio is another good solution for such premises. The layout of a one-room apartment with a niche presupposes especially careful placement of furniture and interior items. It is best to decorate the recess in a single-color scheme with the common area. In addition, the niche itself must have properly thought out lighting.

The layout of a 2-room apartment makes it possible to allocate space for each family member. Here it must be borne in mind that the area of ​​the room can be different – from large to rather small. The main problem for the solution of which the layout of a 2-room apartment in a panel house is required is the presence of walk-through rooms. The latter “steal” usable space. To create two full-fledged separate rooms, you can move the entrance, partially remove the overlap between rooms, etc.

Studio apartment layout - rational use of space

The layout of a 3-room apartment often involves combining adjacent spaces, for example, a balcony is connected to a bedroom or living room. Thus, it is possible to get a place for rest or work. If the kitchen is very small, the competent layout of a three-room apartment will allow you to connect it to the living room, thus obtaining a spacious dining room with a working area. The kitchen space in the studio format is now widely popular, due to the fact that it is convenient, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

The layout of a 4-room apartment requires not only the literacy of the location of the premises but also their functionality, in view of the fact that such housing is most often purchased for a large family. These are complex solutions, considering the needs and wishes of all residents.

How to legalize the redevelopment of an apartment?

Redevelopment implies construction work aimed at changing the layout of the premises after the house is delivered. Each apartment has technical documentation, which spells out its plan. Any changes must be reflected in it without fail. Redevelopment of an apartment in Ukraine implies a list of works associated with it. These include:

• increasing or decreasing the area of ​​the room;
• demolition or relocation of walls, if they are not load-bearing;
• increasing the room due to the loggia;
• combining a kitchen with a room or two rooms;
• creation of additional floors when dividing a room;
• dismantling of storage rooms or built-in wardrobes, marked on the plan.

As a result of these actions, the parameters of the real estate will be changed, in particular, the living and useful area. These works should not affect the supporting structures.

In order to legitimize the redevelopment of an apartment, the following steps are necessary:

1. Before starting work on redevelopment, the owner must obtain permission from the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate. To obtain it, it is necessary to develop and submit a future project and submit a declaration on the beginning of the work.
2. After their completion, a new technical passport is made and a declaration on the completion of construction work is submitted. As a result of these actions, the property owner must have a document in which all the data must match.
3. These changes must be entered into the State Register. The owner also receives an extract from it, which is a confirmation that all actions have been performed within the framework of the law.

If the change in the parameters of the premises affects the new building, then they can be made even at the construction stage. Buying an apartment in an unfinished building, the owner knows approximately the future layout, so such actions will not be a problem. Changes to the layout of such real estate are made at the time of the production of the data sheet and are completely legal.

Failure to comply with the procedure for legalizing redevelopment entails the imposition of a fine. If, after paying it, the redevelopment was not legalized, then the owner is obliged to return everything to its original form. There is also criminal liability for violation of the rules for carrying out work. Such a measure is assigned in the event that the actions led to the appearance of a threat to the life and health of people, and also caused the emergency state of the building.
The NSDGroup company carries out all types of repair work related to both changes in layout and decoration. Clients can order a designer visit to their home to create and design exclusive projects that can emphasize the style and character of the room.

What can be done during a redevelopment

First of all, it is required to determine what is the redevelopment of an apartment in Ukraine from the point of view of the law. This term means moving or removing partitions, moving doorways, etc. Until recently, this procedure required complex manipulations when obtaining permission. However, since 2015, changes have been made to the legislation regarding replanning. Now, if public engineering systems and supporting structures are not affected in the process of making changes, it is much easier to obtain permits.

The layout of an American apartment

Here is a list of actions that are allowed to be performed during redevelopment.

  •         change the location of plumbing (within the designated premises);
  •         carry out the transfer and remove partitions (exclusively non-bearing);
  •         connect the room and the kitchen together (only in the absence of gas supply);
  •         arrange window and door openings (in non-load-bearing walls);
  •         connect a separate bathroom (if the wall is not load-bearing, without ventilation holes);
  •         combine a room and a balcony (without touching the window sill, heating system).

Despite the fact that the listed actions are not prohibited at the legislative level, they still need to be legalized. It does not matter whether the redevelopment of a two-room apartment or a smaller / larger room is being considered, you will need to obtain a new registration certificate for housing. We will talk about the algorithm of actions below.

What not to do during the redevelopment

If redevelopment of apartments is required, the options for changes to the interior space must be carefully considered. You will not be able to obtain permission for such actions:

  •         demolition of load-bearing partitions, columns, external walls;
  •         arrangement of underfloor heating from the general heating and water supply system;
  •         moving heating radiators to the balcony;
  •         the location of the kitchen, bathroom above the living rooms of the neighbors below;
  •         making changes to the configuration of engineering systems.

Also, the layout of a 1-room apartment does not imply the connection of the only living space with a kitchen equipped with a gas stove and a water heater. If you look closely, all the prohibitions are quite logical. After all, the destruction of the load-bearing partition can disrupt the strength of the structure of the entire building, and placing the kitchen above the neighbor’s bedroom will sooner or later lead to flooding.

Studio apartment – layout

Also, we would like to note what a studio layout can be and its advantages. For the first time, such housing appeared in America (beginning of the last century). Then a stream of emigrants moved into the country, who needed inexpensive housing equipped with all the amenities. Studios became popular and quickly became modern, stylish spaces. Designers competed in the creativity of their design, so the layout of the studio apartment is combined with any design. We have this housing appeared at the end of the last – the beginning of the present centuries.

The layout of a small smart apartment

Most often, a studio is a two or one-room apartment, the layout of which does not imply partitions (except for a bathroom and a toilet). The advantages of this housing include:

  •         a small area turns into a useful, functional, and comfortable living space;
  •         the studio can be decorated in absolutely any style, from classics to high-tech;
  •         this is an excellent non-family option, it is possible to hold parties here, it is easy to clean a small room, pay utility bills.

Also, the layout of a small studio apartment or a larger space is ideal for creative people. A workshop can be placed there, combining it with the living area.

How to legalize the redevelopment of an apartment

Now let’s talk about how to legalize the redevelopment of an apartment. To do this, follow a series of steps.

  1. Before construction work begins, it is required to obtain permits from the relevant authority. To do this, you need to draw up a project and submit a declaration at the start of work.
  2. When the work is completed, a new technical passport is made, and an application for the end of the work is submitted.

Redevelopment of a two-room apartment of the Khrushchev type into a studio

As a result, the owner of the apartment receives the documentation, in which all information must correspond to the work performed. In addition, the implemented changes are introduced into the state. Register and the owner of the apartment are provided with an extract from it, confirming that all changes have been made in accordance with the law.

Ignoring legalization entails penalties, after which you still have to follow the steps described above. Otherwise, the owner of the apartment will be obliged to return everything to its original form.

As for the new building, for example, knowing what the layout of a four-room apartment (housing with 1-2-3 rooms) will be, it is possible to make changes even at the construction stage.

Redevelopment of apartments – options

Such a procedure as the redevelopment of apartments, a photo of which is presented in abundance on the worldwide network, is of several types. Let’s consider each of them in more detail.

American apartment – layout

This type of planning of residential premises has become popular in one of the districts of Kharkiv called KhTZ. The apartment has an American layout and has one peculiarity – the absence of a kitchen in the form we are used to seeing it. The kitchen space itself is located in the corridor, and rooms are located on either side of it. The area of ​​the premises ranges from 26 to 56 square meters. There is a choice of one, two and three-room options. This type of layout makes it possible to design a full-sized kitchen and the desired placement of rooms.

Stalinka – layout

Such apartments are still in great demand among consumers. This is not surprising, in view of the fact that these buildings are distinguished by increased reliability, heat, and sound insulation. Columns and crossbars are considered to be one of the features of Stalinist residential buildings. In an apartment like Stalinka, the layout offers owners a wide range of options. These are spacious rooms with high ceilings. Most often, the changes concern overly long corridors, whose territory they prefer to use for more useful purposes, for example, to increase the area of ​​one of the rooms.

Despite the fact that kitchens in the Stalin era have always been quite spacious, additional space is always in handy here. For this reason, many people prefer to combine the kitchen with the living room. As for the bathroom, it is separate in Stalin-type houses. Combining it with a bathroom, you can get a spacious room.

Smart apartment layout

The main difference between smart apartments and other types is accommodation in residential complexes, where there is absolutely everything you need for a comfortable life, from bicycle parking to laundry facilities. The layout of a smart apartment assumes the rational use of space – the entire territory must be functional and useful. As a rule, the bedroom and kitchen here occupy the lion’s share of the area. The arrangement of the rooms makes it possible to bring to life any design solutions in any style and direction.

Khrushchevka – layout

Many owners complain about the fact that the original layout of the Khrushchev is disproportionate and inconvenient – low ceilings, tiny kitchens. The massive construction of these buildings was carried out in the middle of the last century, and then such planning of the interior space was called a forced measure since the buildings were built like a conveyor belt.

There are one-two-three and four-room options. But the layout of a 2-room apartment was considered optimal. Most often it had a walk-through living room, which is why this type of housing can be converted into a studio. In this version of apartments, such as Khrushchev, the layout will help to increase the area of ​​the living room or kitchen by cutting the corridor. In any case, contacting competent specialists will bear fruit and will allow you to turn an uncomfortable apartment into a comfortable and functional one.

Layout – Czech

At its core, Czech is an optimized Khrushchev. It has higher ceilings and a more rational layout. Now, this housing is considered by many segments of the population (young families, people of retirement age, university students). This is an affordable option and is most often located in residential areas. The layout of the Czech woman can combine rooms, divide the space into zones, combine a bathroom and a bathroom. Available to convert kitchen and dining room to studio option and more. In addition, this type of apartment can be decorated in any style – from modern to classic.

The space of absolutely any apartment can be changed in such a way that all family members will live comfortably in it. Even from a small area, it is possible to make a comfortable and functional living space, where every square centimeter will be useful. The main thing is to contact competent specialists with a good reputation.
