Kreative løsninger på 36 kvm
Bare fordi, det er småt med antallet af kvadratmeter, behøver man ikke gå på kompromis med indretningen. Vi har besøgt Julia Christiansen, der læser Kommunikationsdesign på Designskolen. Hun fortæller, hvordan det er at flytte i en studielejlighed alene, og hvorfor hun helst ikke vil købe ting i IKEA.
Hvordan er det at bo selv?
Jeg var lidt bange for at flytte herud selv, fordi jeg aldrig havde forestillet mig at bo alene.
Men jeg fandt ud af, det ikke var så slemt alligevel, fordi jeg bruger meget tid skole, arbejde og venner. Det er også dejligt at jeg kan bo så centralt og at man overordnet, i Kolding by, kan gå til det meste.
Have you considered the layout of your home?
Yes, I have, as I only have 36 square meters to work with. So it's important to make the most of every inch of space. Since my bedroom, kitchen, living room, and workspace are all in the same room, I've had to think creatively about how to best utilize the space.
I also received a trick from a friend who suggested using a wine rack as a shoe rack. I think it's clever to repurpose something from a thrift store and find a new use for it.
Something that is important to me is that the things I have in my apartment have meaning to me. For example, I have a mirror and a dresser that I inherited from my grandmother, which I am really fond of. This also makes the items in your apartment more unique, as they are not something you can just find at IKEA. Additionally, it makes it harder to throw away those things because they hold greater significance to you, which is also more sustainable.
What have your thoughts been regarding the interior design of your home?
Actually, I made a drawing of how I envisioned decorating my home before moving in, as well as a mood board. I did it to visualize the apartment and get a sense of what it would be like to live there. Additionally, I built this table myself using plywood that I had cut at Bauhaus, so I could just bring the panels home and assemble it. I even made instructions for assembling it.
