Why do the podium in the apartment
For many people, the podium is primarily associated with fashion. But if you really want to create your apartment a new and original look, the podium will certainly help to become part of the original interior. Currently, there are so many podiums that differ in their appearance and design.
First of all, they are decorative and technical. If you need to hide various communications from your eyes, then you will need to build a technical podium.
The purpose of the decorative podiums does not need special explanations. You should know that the division into “decorative” or “technical” form, is purely formal. As a rule, these functions are combined.
The construction of the podium is very well suited for zoning a room, especially in a studio apartment, where there is no clear separation of rooms. Another common area of application for the podium is storing things, since cabinets occupy a lot of space. Therefore, the podium is the perfect solution to relieve the feeling of “tightness” in the room.
Why make the podium in the apartment? If you want, then you can build a bed in the podium, adding to the design of the podium a semblance of a drawer. In the daytime, you can put pillows, blankets, sheets in it, and in the evening opening a box to get a bed. Directly on the podium, you can arrange a study, and generally use the free space of the room as you wish.
Podiums first appeared in Japan. Constructions of the podiums were made with vertically sliding drawers, in which different things were kept.
There is another interesting solution – to fill the free space of the podium with foam balls for chairs, which are able to take the form of a body, and to cover the structure with fabric on top. The result will be a very soft podium. On such a podium it is convenient to watch TV or spend time with friends. In addition, you can make removable covers and periodically change the color scheme, depending on your season and time.
Why do the podium in the apartment? But the podium has its drawbacks.
When expanding the horizontal space, they take up space vertically. For this, you need to carefully consider its size, so that you would not be a giant in your apartment and do not support the ceiling.
You need to install fixtures in the side surfaces so that at night your guests do not stumble on the podium.
If the podium is made in the children’s bedroom, its corners should be soft, for example, using fabric in these places that will be stretched over foam rubber.
Good luck with your repair.
