One floor plan, two very different homes
That living situations and personal preferences shape our homes is no secret. Just how much these factors influence furnishing becomes evident in these two apartments. While having identical dimensions and floorplans, a family of four lives in one, the other is a single household. The two homes that are quite different. Still, there's a lot in common: clever solutions, creative ideas and tons of inspiration!
Storage in full, flawless view
Storage solutions always involve a balance between open and closed. For belongings you want everyone to see – and minimise dusting in the process – a glass cabinet makes a show of it (while more prosaic storage can be discreetly stowed higher up).
A home office that fits into another space seamlessly is a good thing. In this dining room, a wall hung organiser unit for work necessities and an extra chair for dinner guests tucks behind an extra wide window curtain.
Hallways, grand entrances and quick exits
Hallways show off your household priorities: the family needs a pinboard for info and schedules, structured storage and easy-to-grab hooks. our single wants last-minute outfit checks and a calm organised spot to feel welcomed home.
Bathroom efficiency vs zen-seeking sanctuary
A single bathroom for a family of four will inevitably be a busy place, but clearly dividing it to suit activities – laundry corner, toothbrushing station, shower area – simplifies logistics. If you don't have the next waiting to be let in, on the other hand, focus on creating a place of relaxation and spa-like comfort.
Everyone and everything tucked in for the night
Under-bed storage is genius at work: adding storage (and cool look) to your bed without requiring an inch of extra floor space. When storage isn't a critical issue, you're free to go all-in on cosiness instead. Like making sure you have a plush rug to land your feet on in the morning, making it just that much easier to get your day off to a good start.
