Cool remodel of a typical kitchen-living room of 34 m²: (the photos before the renovation will amaze you)

Everything about this renovation is interesting: the reorganization of space, the choice of finishing materials and super-spacious storage systems.


Designer Igor Kurkin transformed a typical apartment in a Soviet block house of the P-68-03 series. Work was underway on half of the apartment – the kitchen was combined with the living room to create a spacious and functional common area and a separate bedroom for the parents. The focus was on high-quality finishing materials, a neutral color palette and super comfortable furniture with a large number of storage systems for different life scenarios.


The internal partitions in this house are not permanent, so there were no problems with dismantling the walls and combining the rooms. The kitchen, living room and hallway were remodeled – a total of 34 square meters. m. The set was left in the same place, but it was fitted into a niche, separating an additional sleeping area for customers with a plasterboard partition.

The set was designed in a U shape to create a comfortable cooking space and make the most of the area and height. A refrigerator and an oven are built in on the left, and a sink is on the right. The facades of all lower modules open without handles – for this we used the GOLA mortise profile.

On the back side of the kitchen, two cabinets were designed – a utility cabinet and a dressing room. Smooth fronts look like a single plane; inside there is a lot of space for storing clothes. There is also a washing unit with a washing machine, a net for dirty clothes and a drawer for storing household chemicals.

For the main decoration of the walls, we used decorative plaster: we added a little graphite color to the white paint – the resulting warm gray shade became the base for the decorative coating. There is a quartz laminate on the floor : large tiles similar to stone slabs were chosen for the kitchen and hallway. The living room and bedroom were decorated with narrow and long elements, like boards.

One of the goals of the renovation was to create a full-fledged sleeping area for parents. The bed was abandoned in favor of a three-in-one transformer. The perimeter of the structure is occupied by mezzanines and lockers. The center is a folding bed with gas lifts and an orthopedic mattress with straps. There is also a small soft sofa that can be used for relaxation.

They didn’t put doors between the bedroom and the living room so that you could watch TV from the bed. The designer came up with a sliding soft partition: the track was combined with a canvas made of artificial golden leather. It looks very stylish and unusual.

The windows in the apartment were replaced, now they look like a single system in the spirit of constructivist houses of the 20th century. The entire window sill area was decorated with veneer panels, with removable screens for radiators. The curtains are short so as not to cover all this beauty.

The main storage system is located in the living room: the designer designed a built-in multifunctional structure with cabinets, shelves, and niches. For the hinged facades, we selected a shade close to the color of the walls—due to this, the cabinet does not seem bulky. The effect was enhanced by the absence of handles – the facades open by pressing.

A table with a metal base was placed in an open niche. If necessary, the tabletop can be pulled out to accommodate the whole family and guests. The lower opening is also functionally used – a hanging module with a hinged facade was provided here and space was thought out for additional storage of decor or utensils.

Another feature of the project is many lighting scenarios and multi-colored lighting. The interior includes spotlights and tracks for spots. LED cylinder spots and long linear lamps were installed on the tracks. All elements are rotatable, and if desired, they can be rearranged and added. An LED strip was placed around the perimeter.
