Ravenia#2 : when bedroom turns to be living room

Aloha….

The room area is 2,5m x 3m. I’ve added 2 additional windows on the side wall so we can see the sideyard garden. Non-smoking guest can breathe the fresh air. For the smoked guest, these additional windows will help to blow the smoke away from this room. Yes, hate to say that the hubby smokes.

Why I dont keep it as bedroom? Because the area is too small. I cant see any floor to step on, when our queen-sized bed inside. Then I choose to turn it into livingroom. I think it’s suitable to meet formal guest, since we will not be visited by guests everyday. So a small room is quite enough. One day if we have high frequency of visitation, we will consider to make this room larger.

I add new door for the guests’ access so they can go directly to this room.
AS this room is quite small, then I give mirror so it will reflect all things in this room and will make the room looks bigger.

I dont use sofa for this small room, because it will take alot of space of this room. Then I choose benches for seat, they help the room look bigger. The table is higher than benches, adapted from cafe.
The benches inspiration is like below image.

I’m not certain when applying purple as the color theme of this room since the dark color usually will impress that room is smaller. You may check the color phychology here. But, thanks to mirror, no matter dark color I will use, the room is still larger that its original :D.

That’s my living room inspiration. How about yours ?

Ravenia#1 : 1st Modification – plan

Joining my wife’s idea to do make over to our house, I suggested her to join me using “Sweet Home 3D” as an application tool to simulate our design before we decide to realize the project.

Due to a little space we have so i wanna try to create a simple design based on my basic plan. it is a modification from the original basic plan which has been posted previously.

As you can see I added two rooms (kitchen and laundry room) which previously designed as the backyard. Also i added to forward the bedroom space which previously 2.5m x 3m became 4m x 3m more less. So now I have more space for my bedroom.

Here’s the 3D pictures from all sides
