Cheat for Living Room Apartment
One of the reasons why most people now-days prefer to live in apartments is becouse of the complete facilities and there are those who think that buying a house in an urban area has a very high price. But the challenge if we live in an apartment is a very limited land where the available space is usually a living room integrated with a pantry or even a living room that integrates with the bedroom (for studio type), therefore the interior arrangement is very important so that we feel comfortable at home.
Most people who live in an apartment will try to make the interior of the apartment look spacious, neat and easy to clean, so that the residents feel comfortable while resting after struggling with their busy work. Because we are more active in the family room (living room) then try to apply these 4 tips to make the living room of your apartment more comfortable.
1. Artwork on the wall with a large size
The artwork here can be the size of glass covering the entire wall with a unique shape, cabinet panels and for the cheapest solution can use large posters or paintings. Create a focal point and give your space some wow factors with artwork on one of your living room walls.
2. Simple style
A lively living room with unobserved items can look messy and disorganized. Choose your collection and only leave the part that has sentimental value. Simple and organized space will allow existing items to look more stand-out, and that will help you determine your budget.
3. TV that integrates with the room
There is no denying the impression of luxury and sophistication in a room that has a large black television and then placed in front and center. One trick is to hang the TV in a cabinet that is designed to be integrated with the room. Besides looking harmonious and clean the broad impression on the space will also be achieved.
4. Combine several accessories
Accessories in the form of plants will make your tired eyes more relaxed using these accessories in several corners of the room and can also be smaller in size to be placed on the table. You can also add unique and artistic components to the interior of your apartment (even with the right budget).
To anticipate a limited space is indeed very challenging if it is possible to use a cabinet that fits the size of your room in addition to storing things to make it look more neat and clean the cabinet can also be an important element in a room, well here the role of custom furniture is very important, where we can adjust the design to suit every room size and will always look interesting to look at.

Tracing down the history of wardrobe and its design development
Story by Dian Arthen (ID Magazine) & Metric
Wardrobe and closet are two words used interchangeably to describe a medium to store clothes. These two terms however have different meanings in the dictionary, a closet is described as an architectural feature, or a designated space inside a house, whereas a wardrobe is a piece of furniture. Perhaps the main reason why wardrobe and closet now basically describe the same thing is because modern design has combined these two into one, today’s houses are more likely to have built-in wardrobes along with other shelves located in a specific area that keep not only clothes but also other fashion items such as bags, wallets and jewelries.
The history of wardrobe can be traced back to the 17th century in the United States. Back then, wardrobes were made in the form of a hanging cupboard made from oak with heavy carvings on its doors. They were huge and the Americans exported them to the England and lasted for a hundred years. Then the use of oak for wardrobe gradually decreased and in came the American walnut that became the most sought after material to build a wardrobe.
Around the same time, clothes presses were also on trend, with drawers and sliding trays. In the 18th century, Tallboy that incorporates a chest of drawers and a wardrobe on top with the lower section is usually wider than the upper was on trend. Tallboy was mostly made from mahogany and the size was measured using the eight small men method, meaning that a Tallboy needs to be able to fit eight small men into it.
By 19th century, the mass production of furniture was growing and the economy was getting better, people were able to afford more clothes and it led to a modern form of the wardrobe with a hanging cupboard at each side, a clothes press in the upper part and drawers in the bottom.The most common materials used were mahogany, satinwood and other previously scarce woods that started to be obtainable. The biggest innovation in the wardrobe was the function of central doors that previously were used to only enclose the upper part, had been stretched down to the floor, covering the drawers as well as the sliding shelves and featured mirrors on the exterior.
In Indonesia, it wasn’t clear when exactly the wardrobe trend first entered the country. One of the most established furniture makers in Indonesia, Metric founded in 1994, started to branch out to wardrobe in 2001. Back then, wardrobes’ function was only for storing clothes, they tended to be bulky and made of solid woods.
By 2001, Metric came up with wardrobe product made of MDF material and HPL as a complimentary to their kitchen products. Metric received a positive response from their customers and they decided to add wardrobe as one of their core products. Metric prides itself as a company that understands the customer’s needs and is able to incorporate the furniture design with the customer’s room ambiance.
One fine example is the way Metric builds a built-in wardrobe that is tailored to each room, making it part of the room instead of being seen as a piece of a separate furniture. By always offering the latest design trends coming from European countries to their customers, Metric customers are mostly people who are into modern and minimalistic style, they most often ask for a wardrobe that is modern yet simple with great lighthing and in neutral color palette.
The Metric representative further told us that the main challenges in designing a wardrobe are shelves positioning, placement and designing each of the compartments to be well organized and efficient. If today’s trend is all about minimalistic approach, in the future the company predicts that people will lean toward rustic and industrialized design, having a wardrobe that features the latest technology yet is environmentally conscious by creating an efficient lighting system.
Serving table can also be designed in the kitchen area , not always in the dining room
Quoted from IDEA Magazine, by Johanna Erly Widyartanti - Sunday, September 30, 2018

Metric, a maker of kitchenware, wardrobe and TV cabinets, introduced a concept called the Premium Cabinetry System, which always using the latest technology from Europe. The concept that combines elements of design, quality, and service is to produce each panel using the machine, starting from cutting, drilling, until the coating to guarantee precision and finishing.
Meanwhile, the finishing materials are using HPL (high pressure laminates). HPL is manufactured with a high-pressure, high-temperature modern machine that prevents discoloration, even though it has been used for years. This product is also not peeled because it is processed with a hot press machine. In addition, this product is also waterproof and chemical-resistant cleaning fluid.
For top table, Metric uses Formatop material or solid surface that has several advantages. One of them is hygienic because the surface is not porous and easy to clean when exposed to soy sauce, sauce, vinegar, coffee, and other kitchen chemical fluids. The connection is also almost invisible, so the look more precision and beautiful. Solid and uniform material (not coating) allows the surface to be polished continuously without changing the shape and color. The coating is also heat resistant.

Classic design is represent with heavy design and looks old. But not with this kitchen. Metric presents an elegant classic kitchen concept. Where the design used the neutral color element, modern, and full of luxury.
Classic kitchen generally requires an ample space to get good design results, at least 9 square meters. The shape of the kitchen can be made with the L or U model, with or without the island. Metric's classic kitchen is 25 square meters, dominated by white, combined with marble. All upper and lower cabinets used white duco finishing technique. This technique covers all the wood surfaces and produces a sleek and luxurious look. The top table on the kitchen and island, as well as the walls, are using a statuario marble type. This material produces a clean and elegant charm, in accordance with the dominant color in the kitchen area. Metric also adds sandblasting glass in some parts, to create the classic elements more subtle. For supporting accessories such as handles, locks, and hinges for the kitchen are using best quality products.
Classic design requires precision in finishing and manufacture, because many detail profiles have not flat forms. For that Metric uses the most advanced technology in realizing the classic design. Metric also used premium material and exclusive, so only Metric that has this product licensed in Indonesia.
