This is a very small apartment of 305 square feet. Incredibly tiny, but regardless of the size it manages to be comfortable, stylish and cozy without feeling crowded. Because of the size trying to get different rooms to separate areas is almost impossible. But the owner manages to get the same effect having different decors in each area to create that separation and avoiding the feeling of being in the same place no matter what you are doing.

There is a main living area where there is a kitchenette, living room and bedroom area. To define the space between the kitchenette and the rest of the space and to increase the working surfaces, there is a countertop/island. The living room area has exposed brick that adds contrast and separates it from the bedroom. There is also a curtain to increase privacy in that area.

Very stylish and nicely decorated. Jump to the article to see all the photos.

This apartment is not as small as the previous one. But it shares with it the open plan living to increase the feeling of space. The apartment is 704 square feet and in that space it manages to have a double bedroom, kitchen, dining space, living room office and bathroom.

As you can see in the photo above, one of the walls of this squared apartment has been used to place the kitchen and the office area. Next to it you can find the dining area facing the outdoors. The living room separates the previous area from the bedroom and bathroom on the other side. In order to increase the feeling of privacy a curtain works as a door in the bedroom. Beautiful flooring and light woods complete the look making it feel spacious and very comfortable at the same time.

This is a great apartment of 590 square feet and as in the previous two cases it manages the lack of space with an open floor living plan. As well as in the previous cases some kind of separation between the bedroom has been used. But in this case it’s not been a curtain but a sliding glass door to access the bedroom. This way the apartment benefits from all the light coming from the huge windows covering one of its walls. Light is the best part in here. The bottom panels of the windows have been frosted to increase privacy and letting as much light as possible in it. The sliding glass door  leading to the bedroom is also frosted.

The rest of the apartment is very nicely distributed making the best use of all the light coming into it. Jump to the article to see all the photos and read more about it.

Our last apartment doesn’t have the open plan living of the previous ones but is surprisingly well decorated with lovely colour, great flooring and smart use of shelving.

This apartment is 510 square feet and in that small space it manages to have a full double bedroom with office, living room, kitchen, bathroom and dining room or sort of dining room. The corridor shape of the apartment allows to place all the rooms adjacent to the wall with windows leaving a small corridor to access them. It is that corridor the one that gets used as a dining room adjacent to the kitchen. The next is smart use of storage and using a nice decoration to enhance the beautiful flooring. It feels bigger than it is and it looks fantastic.
