Your family’s 3-room apartment furnishing for 11,200 euros!

When planning efficient home furnishing, where the balance of the design, functionality and cost is of importance, you cannot help but think of IKEA. IKEA calls it democratic design, which is based on values such as quality, shape, low price, functionality and sustainability.

In the projects developed so far, the real estate developer Estera Development has featured model apartments, where the furnishing mainly consists of IKEA goods, carefully selected in terms of design and cost.  One of the latest accomplishments is the 3-room model apartment in the project "Tuvidi". The Brandeleven interior designer Guna Akona talks about the contemporary and available apartment furnishing in "Tuvidi". 

 

 

"Tuvidi" apartments, with their well-designed layout, provide a perfect environment for testing the IKEA philosophy in action.  Does IKEA really know our habits and is it ready to meet our needs? And what shall we do if we still strive for perfection or want something completely different? 

"Tuvidi" 3-room model apartment is mainly furnished with things bought in IKEA, adding different accents and custom-made furniture components to ensure that everything is as functional as possible.  

When starting the furnishing of a new home, it is very tempting to finally buy all of the beautiful, long-desired furniture and home accessories seen in the pretty pictures, but people often forget to think about how it will all look and live together.  

The home interior basically consists of 3 layers:

The first basic layer is room finishing, i.e., wall colour, flooring material, doors, bathroom tiling, etc., which we would gladly leave as it is when buying a new apartment.  It is always nice if the developer’s vision of an aesthetically pleasing and cosy interior meets the intentions of the new owner.  Walls in "Tuvidi" apartments are of a warm white colour; all of the living premises have the same wooden laminate floors and dark grey doors and skirting as a contrasting accent, which goes well with any colour and style, but at the same time is very practical in terms of cleaning.

The next level, which requires planned investments from the new apartment owner, is furniture.  Since life goes on, children grow up and fashion changes, but we buy furniture for a longer time, I usually recommend thinking of this level in conceptual terms - common colour and material combination ("Tuvidi" apartment has greyish blue tones + white + light wood veneer finishing) and functional style, where the IKEA offer is very suitable. We spent around 11,200 EUR to furnish the "Tuvidi" 3-room apartment and its spacious balcony. 

Accessories is the part of the interior, where we can follow the current trends, fashion and joy of colours.  For example, in "Tuvidi" nursery, where a curious child of kindergarten age lives with his little brother, a light green colour and expressive pictures of the beloved family pet - the cat - are used as interior accents.

Perhaps, as the boys grow, the interests and taste of the inhabitants of the room will change, but the nature of the room will alter and still remain trendy by changing lamp shades, pillowcases and pictures on the walls.  Various interior accessories, curtains and tableware create the sense of homeliness in the "Tuvidi" model apartment, with the total budget amounting to 5300 EUR. 

Wardrobes, which can be purchased at IKEA, are highly functional, can be supplemented with a different internal layout and vast selection of doors, which essentially is the only part of the wardrobe that affects the interior.  But it is always the case that the dimensions of standard wardrobes do not fit the niche they are supposed to go in.  This is a place that requires a custom solution by ordering carpentry to make a wardrobe component that accurately meets the size of the niche. It can be practical to leave this part of the wardrobe without doors or choose a distinctly different door design, since it is nearly impossible for the workshop to produce exactly the same doors as in the IKEA production plant.  The wardrobe that fits the niche in the "Tuvidi" bedroom cost 541.20 EUR.

When choosing balcony furniture, it has to be able to endure weather, rain and sun and also be comfortable, which can easily be solved by adding different pillows.  In the summer, cosiness can easily be achieved by green plants and blooming flowers, but you must consider that they will require regular maintenance.  We furnished the 7 m2 large "Tuvidi" balcony by spending roughly 650.00 EUR. 

Real estate news

When furnishing a new apartment, it would be nice to remember the family pet and design a place where it can eat and sleep, and suitable upholstered furniture should be selected for the living room.  The real cat-food bowl is both functional and matches the interior.

The new 3-room apartments are available only a 20-minute drive away from Riga centre.  Choose your new family home in "Tuvidi": www.tuvidi.lv.
