Glazing and insulation of the loggia makes it possible to transfer it to the category of “living quarters” and attach it to the room. This is one of the most popular options for improving existing living conditions. And the arrangement of additional square meters depends on how the connection was carried out.
Joining without redevelopment
From the point of view of bureaucratic procedure, the most “painless” way to attach a loggia to a room is to simply remove the balcony block without dismantling the wall and transferring the battery. Since the outer wall and the battery are not touched, this is not considered a change in the project, and therefore does not require approval and obtaining permits. Therefore, often joining a loggia to a room looks like this:
In practice, this option for connecting a loggia is especially popular for a home office device. And if the width allows, then there is enough space for a table and an armchair, for a pedestal and several narrow cabinets in the space under the windowsill.
A narrow loggia limits the possibilities for organizing a storage system. But the lack of space for cabinets and cabinets can be compensated for by a rack in the window opening..
In the previous two examples, custom-made furniture was used to organize the workplace: a table, shelves, shelves and cabinets. But you can also choose finished products. As in this case, when the loggia is adjacent to the women’s bedroom, a classic-style dressing table and an ordinary chair look organically here. And on the tabletop, installed in the window opening, there is a decorative table lamp and pots with small cacti. Typical boudoir of social media lovers.
If the loggia is adjacent to the children’s room, then for the mother of a small child, we can recommend the following organization of the home office: “lean” the tabletop for the computer on the partition of the window block (to sit facing the nursery), and instead of traditional fabric curtains, hang threads with glass beads. Firstly, such a curtain is in fashion, and secondly, it allows you to control the child.
Another original way to use a window sill wall is to install an aquarium on it. But you have to take into account that most ornamental fish are “heat-loving”, and therefore they will need to create special conditions. In this case, a battery with a thermostatic head was taken out to the loggia. An upward flow of warm air in the aquarium area equalizes the temperature on the loggia to room temperature and optimizes the operation of the water heater. The situation is somewhat simpler with the “winter garden”.
In some projects, the loggia may have two separate openings – a window and a balcony. Such loggias are large in size, which allows you to place here not only a computer desk, but there is also enough space for installing a desk..
Those who like to invite guests can be advised to arrange a home bar on the loggia. The width and height of the window opening is sufficient for the installation of a small bar counter. There is plenty of room on the side of the opening for a drinks cabinet, and on top you can fit wine and whiskey glass holders. (photo 7)
As an “intermediate” option, you can consider the expansion of the doorway of the balcony door while preserving part of the wall under the window.
And again, the most popular solution for a loggia attached to a living room is the organization of a home office.
Another option is the device of a kind of bay window with a decorative arched opening. There will be plenty of room for both floor lamps and a coffee table with a couple of armchairs..
If you cut out a partition under the window in the balcony block, then we can talk about the full connection of the loggia to the adjacent room.
This can be a relaxation area with soft armchairs and a coffee table, a workplace with a writing table and a pair of shelves, a “women’s corner” with a chest of drawers, a mirror and a tea table, a “female half” of a matrimonial bedroom with a dressing table, a pouf and a low armchair, a place for classes in the children’s room.
