5 ways to add cottage square meters - the interior of a small country house.
Since holiday housing is in fact only the second property, we often see very small, sometimes even tiny buildings. And the problem is that even with the availability of funds and an ardent desire to attach another room to the house, it is not possible to do this because of a small plot of land.
Moreover, the problem with square meters arises from someone who does not want to invest too large amounts in the arrangement of the problem. This article is devoted to the last, about how to easily add a few more square meters to the area and create a very cozy interior of a small country house.
Idea No. 1. Arrangement of storage space.
In this small room you can see a logical and organized approach to storing small things in the country.It may seem to you that due to its small size the area is not significantly saved, but it is not. Small things that do not have their place, just create a mess and do not allow you to make the most of those square meters that are available to you.
Along the perimeter at the level of an outstretched hand in this house are shelves for books. Not massive, almost invisible, they do not make the interior heavier, but they help to quickly tidy up the room, putting everything on the "shelves".
A small hanging rack near the workplace (computer desk) allows you to store CD-and DVD-disks, stationery, letters and documents. Under the dining table you can notice a small warehouse of products - here you can find cereals and cans of canned goods. If desired, the same rack could be made for clothes, increasing its width by about 10 cm.
There are coat hooks near the sofa, they are located above the pet's sleeping place - a small dog. The combination is always useful, as it saves space and uses the interior of a small country house with benefits.
Idea number 2. Arrange bedroom in the attic
If you want to take the jackpot - that is, to win in the house from 8 to 15 square meters - we suggest you arrange a bedroom in the attic.Of course, this will not be a full-fledged room, but there will be a place for a bed, your clothes and something else.
If you have wooden floors, think about how to properly disassemble them. The advice of a specialist or a country house neighbor, whom he himself was engaged in the construction of his house, will also help. The roof will most likely have to be insulated and lined with clapboard.
The ladder to the attic can be arranged both permanent and collapsible. The latter is much more expensive, but has a metal folding mechanism. You can also think about the ladder - if you do not often come to the country.
Cats love to be on top - in the literal and figurative sense of the word. You are not only building an attic for yourself - surely your Vaska will never sleep on the ground floor again.
Smart bedding in the attic will help you find a place for two or even three beds. And do not forget to conduct electricity there - so that you can safely read a book before bedtime. It does not hurt and the light bulb directly above the stairs, so that at night you can see where you are going.
Idea number 2. Storage under the stairs
Instead of stealing from an already small, 4x4 room, and also a walk-through, with three doors, an area under the stairs to the attic, you can place instead a beautiful closet-shelving.
Idea No. 4. Folding and mobile furniture.
In the photo you see a table that can turn into a kitchen island, a dining table and a cabinet combined. In the middle of the room it performs the first function, at the sofa - the second, and at the wall - the third.
It unfolds "wings" in both directions, which is why it becomes two thirds more. Additional hooks, a magnetic metal strip for storing knives and a paper towel holder make this item the most versatile in the home.
In dry weather, it can be put in the garden, just rolling out the door. Here you will only need benches or additional chairs. Or you can transform it into an “street kitchen” - for lunch, dishes will fit on the open terrace or salads will be prepared.
This mobile table looks very stylish and modern. And you will always have everything at hand.
Idea number 5 House with a terrace.
Pay attention to the second entrance to the cottage - a large gate.Pour concrete pad near them (about 16 square meters) and put a shed - so in fine days you will double your dacha area and get a great place for tea drinking, festivities and reading books.
