Let's have another room/interior design thread.
Post your room or (if you are a poorfag like me) post pictures of good looking rooms.
Those cabinets don't look airtight, the figurines are going to get dusty.
Tips on how to make a 12.4 m2 room in a shared apartment even remotely tolerable?
Take full advantage of the height of the room for shelving
There's a bed frame on Amazon that doesn't require a box spring and allows for a lot of storage under the frame
Go to a thrift store and buy filing cabinets. They're empty shells for storage and make for a very compact table. Also they're generally able to be stacked on top of one another
Get a few potted plants to make the room feel alive. They're under ten dollars and available in any big box store or grocery store
I'll have a 20 m2 flat.
I have no choice but minimalism meme style.
I plan on
>one large shelve / cabinet with multiple boxes to fit my stuff.
>one minimalist hanger to hang my coat, shirts and the like
>one table to eat
>one foldable couch/bed
And I think that's it for what I have on my phone.
Yeah that sucks man I love this interior delight, I also love contemporary architecture
It's just inspo mate, try to keep just what you think relevant
can this be effay with the right stuff put in/painted white?
should break the wall at the left, don't really like the inspo
i'm gonna be living in a small 300 sq ft space. tips on how to make things look /fa/ and also "homier"? i don't want a minimalistic bachelor studio like everyone else in new york. willing to spend a lot.
I've seen several nice rooms posted by people that actually frequent /fa/. It's completely possible that is his room.
Yep, it's mine. Here's an old photo when I used to have carpet.
moving soon and am gonna get pic related for a bed frame, if you could hook me up with some inspo for the colors it'd be much appreciated.
Also, I'm probably going to build something like this for a place to put a turntable setup/records: http://a360.co/29Vr51N
feel free to tear into it, I don't want to put a lot of time into something that's going to end up looking shitty. Still figuring out how to do support and specific dimensions.
Thank you, friends. I will keep your suggestions in mind.
Has anyone got the image of the room decorated with a shit tonne of foliage? I've been looking everywhere for it. Or just general interior foliage inspo.
Moving to Uni lets soon and I don't want my room to fuel my post student loan depression and regret.
Current milk crates don't actually fit LPs. I've only seen them stored in older ones, which aren't as easy to track down. I just use those stupid square ikea bookcases.
wouldnt this be terrible in real life
imagine bringing a man or woman back after a party or some shit and having to climb up and down that while drunk as fuck. also arent they kinda weird to have past the age of like 12?
genuine question, they look dope but are very impractical
Forget the stairs, look how much headroom you have over the mattress. You're going to have pretty boring sex up there.
Yes. A buddy of mine tried the whole "microhome" thing and discovered similar issues.
I love your aesthetic, but the clothes in the middle of the room and TV viewing angle bother me a bit. What do you do when you want to watch TV???
Are you starting school like a champion?
Don't. Those bedframes are annoying during sex.
You'll get there. Assuming you aren't too concerned about getting a huge place, places like that can generally be had for about $3k/mo. or so, which isn't awful.
Case in point, joints like this are popping up in DC with some regularity:
idk, $300 000 might do it.
you put 30k down, and then get a reallly long mortgage, and instead of paying rent you pay 800/month to bank. then you literally never pay it off, but sell it later and get some of your money back
Unlikely. You'll need more in a good city for a nice view. 300k may buy you a very small condo in a decent city, but probably not in an amazing location. Floors with better views often have nicer apartments as people will pay a premium for the view. Then you have to pay for remodelling and nice furniture, and condo fees on top of your mortgage.
>I love your aesthetic, but the clothes in the middle of the room and TV viewing angle bother me a bit. What do you do when you want to watch TV???
Thanks. I turn the TV screen to the left which makes it face directly to me if I set on the left side of my window seat. I agree not the best view for other positions though.
The clothes rack is more parallel to my bed than it looks from the wide angle lens.
what are you talking about, 3k a month is extortion
isn't rent supposed to be at max 33% of your income? renting a place like that, i would need to make over 100k NET. most people will never make that kind of cash, especially here. even in your example of a DC apt at 670sqft, it's still 2k, which is over 70k net. but most people pay well over 33% because they have to.
get a bunch of old mass market paperbacks. You can find them for super cheap, the yellowed pages have a nice warm color, and it makes you look well read. Even if it's just sci-fi and fantasy trash, you'd be amazed how many people are impressed if you just own books that haven't been turned into movies
I've been doing the same, albeit with hardcover books, and with the rule that I only buy shit I'd actually read (or have read). It's been fun.
although technically my advice is a violation of global rule #1 =(
but I'm sorry it's good advice; those high and mighty milk companies can afford to lose a few plastic crates
fuck or you can just go to Sams Club and get wooden wine crates for free
there i cancelled out the theft by showing legitimate frugality
They are blackout blinds so yeah they block out the sun, and they were not cheap haha.
The top is an old marble fireplace back. I got it off some guy on gumtree for £60.
The legs are called hairpin legs, £30ish from eBay.
The legs are screwed in to plywood, which then supports the marble top. I didn't feel the need to secure the top because its heavy as shit anyway and ain't moving. Hope that helps?
While I'm at it, the floor lamp is a bamboo coat hanger and glass sphere table lamp. I put a colour changing LED in there to set the mood and impress the ladies.
ie. Your mum
>While I'm at it, the floor lamp is a bamboo coat hanger and glass sphere table lamp. I put a colour changing LED in there to set the mood and impress the ladies.
so dope. where can i get a Sphere lamp and color changing bulb?
I got it from eBay but it's an ikea one. Last I checked it was 13£ I think.
The bulb is an auraglow 10w colour changing LED bulb from Amazon for £20. By far the most I've spent on a bulb, but totally worth it.
What do the people that are able to afford these rooms do for a money?
Yep. The board at shin height only really serves to be annoying to accidentally kick against or to roll on. Happens more than you'd think.
is that actual water?
where to get paintings like that
also can anyone explain the psychology behind why these kinds of photos are so pleasing
what is that skull thing
Wow, I didn't think it was possible, but I hate every single picture posted in this thread.
Every single one of these pictures is trendhopping bullshit.
>mattress and Macbook
>edison bulbs galore
>bookshelves full of shit you haven't read
>LED-lit highrise apartments on rent
I hate every single one of you. Please get taste.
yeah, I buy too many books
can't walk into a bookstore anymore without walking out with something
it's gotta be a good book, usually a nice hardcover or a small pocket paperback that I can carry around easily
I don't think I'd ever buy a book just for the way it looks on a shelf
aight so my room looks like shit right now because I just finished repainting it an icy blue color. I'm getting a smaller bed frame, possibly a floater, a new desk, dresser, and shelving for my books. I really like the comfy look with sick lighting like these:
But I'm new to interior design n shit and also trust /fa/ with my life so how would you guys design it? Any ideas pls?
ffs do panoramas not post normally on here?
theres definitely a lot of potential here
i sound dumb whenever i recommend it but i highly suggest ditching the bed frame for a very low one or nothing at all. i use pallets which look dope and just seem to give the room loads more sspace which yours might need
Low bed frames aren't that versatile imo. They work if the room is spacious or the other furniture fits. Imagine a big wardrobe next to this bed towering above for example.
They look good when it works but it's hard to make it work.
Nah, you don't sound dumb at all. I was thinking about getting a floater or something but like >>11513063 it seems like they're a little hard to work with? I still might get a pallet though.
Does a daybed like pic related seem effay and also spacious? It'd be either this or a twin pallet probably.
but without the trundle, shits kinda annoying
In my experience getting a bed with storage underneath for clothes is one of the most space saving things you can do. Just add a clothes rack for shirts, jackets etc. A clothes rack is also much less fussy about where it can be placed vs a wardrobe.
I've seen you in a few threads now, anon, and I just want to day that it gives me a warm and happy feeling to know that someone across the internet is communicating from such a beautiful place.
Be careful with pallets. Unless you want to go full unfinished wood and linen everywhere, it might end up looking really out of place. If you have a box spring (I can't tell from the photo), just get legs and maybe a headboard. Cover everything with a white cotton/linen bed skirt, and you'll still have storage space. Since you have white baseboards/framing, maybe get some art/posters/printed shit in plain white frames, or have accent furniture in white. Get some wall art regardless. Since it's a small room, try not to clutter it with stuff. I love your wall colour btw. My dining room is a really light blue.
Question that I don't know where to post so I'll post it here:
Recently bought a comforter and the tag says dry clean only. Would machine washing it really ruin the fuck out of it?
if you share it with someone else it's not too bad. and 70k is pretty average for a middle class computer programmer or some shit. obviously you wouldn't be able to afford it right out of college, but by your mid 30s or so it's not to unrealistic.
Need some help/suggestions- I have an odd space between the foot of my bed and the wall thats about 14 inches. What can I do with this space keeping in mind that often times my feet will dangle in this space so I don't really want anything that can be knocked over.
I hate my room so much right now, feel like it's so plain but EVERYTIME I try to decorate it ends up looking worse. Also how do you deal with your stuff on tables lookin like such clutter? Do you put everything in containers?
I also feel like it's completely detached from my closet/bathroom area
>it gives me a warm and happy feeling to know that someone across the internet is communicating from such a beautiful place.
What a wonderful thing to say. Thank you.
>do you read?
There's an inset bookcase the corner from where that picture was taken. I read 7-10 hours a week, mostly on art and society, and have finished 3 books recently. On the last 100 pages of No Logo by Naomi Klein which has been very informative. Highly recommended if you want to know just how deeply ingrained, yet pernicious, marketing is to our culture and don't mind a dense book.
over half of these rooms would look like shit were it not for the bloom of white light coming from a window, which isn't even indicative of what you'd see in real life. Keep that in mind when designing your apartment.
This is very, very true. "Minimalist" rooms like this tend to feel a bit dingy without the overabundance of natural light. Not saying it applies to any of the rooms above, just my experience.
Holy shit every single morning youre going to wake up with a million splinters, it looks nice but thats just not going to work.
Hey guys, former design industry person here.
Going to be outfitting a cargo van into a super comfy stealth camper.
Budget is about 10k american.
Anyone with ideas about color palette or any other ideas, please attend the van thread here on /fa/.
i think placing the bike there is on offseasons or when you are using annother bike for a long period of time. So you'd normally clean the wheels I guess.
What I don't know is how you not hit yourself in the head with the pedal every time you sit there.
Nothing in my room is too expensive- a lot of it is DIY. You just have to be creative :^)
I just work at a takeaway and i'm a fine art student. I'm lucky that my mother owns property (including mine) so I don't have to pay rent. I realise other people don't have the same privilege. But yeah just be creative and try upcycle things.
Here's my old room.
It ended up getting very cluttered with things on the wall and things lying around. Taught me to put things away regularly and not to own to much stuff.
It's in a house, the weird thing is I already have so much storage in my closet (I posted it as well) that it would feel weird to get shelving, but ugh maybe my stuff looks like a mess even tho it really isn't
consider some sort of bookcase/storage by that empty wall? You can put nice things on top like plants or record player or mirror etc.
Yeah I was thinking of something like that too. I was also considering putting some art in my room seeing as it's really barren.. Not sure how that would turn out though. I love blue but I don't think it goes with my room
tried to clean up a little (don't mind the clothes on the bed) I think it feels better. Might look into art and small stuff holders tomorrow thanks /fa/

what i require:
1. ceiling >14 ft.
2. one wall of mostly window (the higher the ceilings, the more willing i am to have slightly fewer/smaller windows)
3. a view
are all places i could work with.
pic related is the dream though. a small indoor/outdoor mountainside home in the desert built into/around a rock for the cold months, a second home on the central coast for the hot months, and a condo in the city to use for a week here and there.
Hey guys, I'm looking for somewhere where I can get a shelf similar to this except more rugged like it was cut direct from the tree. I see a lot of rooms with shelves like that posted in the threads but can't find them
>but by your mid 30s or so it's not to unrealistic
>tfw the good life will already be over when you're 35
heres my piece of crap. dont know if i should get another table and move the bed to the middle or not.
