How to make room in Khrushchev: the application of design tricks to practice
Features Khrushchev is the presence of combined rooms with a small area and low ceilings. For the decoration of the premises in the apartment should use certain design techniques that visually expand a small space.
Since the ceilings in the Khrushchev low enough, the bulky chandelier in the middle of the ceiling can visually reduce the already small space. The best option would be a suspended ceiling placed around the perimeter of spotlights. It may seem that such a design will significantly reduce the already small height of the ceiling, but if you make the ceiling glossy, then in combination with ambient light the room will not only expand visually, but will also look stylish and modern.
Suspended ceiling design will also help to solve such a problem as low sound insulation, which is a characteristic feature of all Khrushchev. Glossy suspended ceilings will reflect light and visually lift the ceiling, creating the illusion of spaciousness. Examples of successful ceiling decoration hall Khrushchev can be viewed in the photo.

Design of the hall
The fundamental decision on the design of the hall is the dismantling of partitions between the hallway and the kitchen. Such drastic changes help to completely redraw the space and create a unique interior of the hall in the Khrushchev. It should be noted that such a cardinal decision may not please your family members, especially if the hall serves as a bedroom, as it is not very pleasant to sleep in the kitchen. A less radical method would be to divide room space into zones using fabric partitions or non-cumbersome decorative structures. Successful examples of the division of the space of the hall in a small apartment can be viewed in the photo.
