No matter how spacious the children's room is, there is always not enough room in this room. Given that the needs of the child change almost every year, in the room where he lives, you constantly need to add something and organize new spatial zones.
However, parents often do not take into account that if the room has access to the balcony, it can easily be used to expand the useful area. Moreover, the design of a children's room with a balcony can be truly exclusive and original. You will see this if you read the advice that the "House of Dreams" has prepared for you.
It used to be that a room with a balcony is not the best place for a small child to live in it. This belief was based more on the fact that the balcony, as a rule, cools the room, and this does not have the best effect on the health and comfortable pastime of the child. But modern technology allows you to insulate th
There are at least three options for decorating a children's room with a balcony, and each of them we will consider below.
If the parents are not ready for a radical redevelopment, and the size of the room allows you to organize all the necessary zones in the room, then you should not combine the balcony with the room. However, this does not mean that the area of the balcony can be used only to store unnecessary things.
Decorating a child's interior with a balcony, you need to consider how harmonious the overall design will look like a balcony door. If the room is equipped in a certain style, an ordinary plastic door will introduce a slight disharmony. To avoid this, it is better to hide it with the help of Roman curtains or fabric blinds. Also, the appearance of the balcony door can be "ennobled" with the help of short colored sub-hoods or light curtains. Another interesting option "ennobling" the balcony door is the design of the space around the special panels.
If the children's room with the balcony door is not sufficiently illuminated, then the designers recommend choosing or ordering the door without partitions, that is, the one whose surface is completely made up of glass. This little detail will add to the children's room of natural light and, moreover, visually make it larger.
In modern interiors of bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens, especially ifthey do not have significant space, the balcony is often combined with the main room. This feature gives several advantages:
The room in which the child resides can also be combined with a balcony. However, thinking about this design, you need to immediately take into account that the children's room, combined with the balcony, requires considerable warmth. In addition, any redevelopment should be registered in the housing and communal services.
Since the wall connecting the balcony and the room is often a carrier, it can not be completely destroyed. Therefore, to combine these two rooms it is better to decorate arched openings or leave a part of the wall, which can later be decorated with decorative panels. To maximize the benefit of using the entire space of the room, you can leave the undisturbed lower part of the window space and decorate it in the form of an additional surface for playing games or classes.
Regarding the functional value, the resulting free space can be arranged as a training or play area, a recreation area or a sports area, a dressing room, etc.
A full-fledged children's room on the balcony is still a rarity for our apartments. However, if the balcony is glazed and insulated by all the rules, it is not difficult to organize a room in it.
To begin work on rebuilding a regular balcony into a children's room, you need to warm it up. Since it is not safe to use too heavy and bulky materials in this room, it is recommended to use lightweight expanded clay brick as an additional insulation for walls. To insulate the ceiling, floor and parapets experts recommend using stone wool, which, in addition, is also a soundproof material.
Also, for a child to be comfortable in his room, parents should take care of an additional source of heat. On balconies and loggias it is forbidden to carry out central heating, therefore an alternative for this purpose can be either electric heaters or the organization of heated floors. Since the built-in floor heating often increases its level, this feature can be used to design a podium or a step.
To visually save space, the ceiling is better to design with hanging panels with built-in lights.
As the area of the balcony is often small, it is most convenient to equip this space with compact furniture-transformer, ready-made game or sports complexes and training corners.
While decorating the children's room on the balcony, remember that this room can not be equipped with heavy things. Let all pieces of furniture be as light and compact as possible.
This is the three main ways to organize the space of a children's room with a balcony. What will it be - an adjacent furnished balcony with a place for storing toys, expanding the space of the room by combining it with a balcony or a full-fledged children's on it - it's up to you!
