How timely, considering it's Small Cool time here at Apartment Therapy: this weekend 11 of Austin's smallest and coolest homes will be featured in the first ever Smarter Spaces Tour. These amazing urban dwellings are real-world, practical examples of how you can maximize your space to live smart and beautifully.
(Images: Launch787 and Modern Home Tours, LLC) All homes on the tour are under 2,500 square feet, with most in the 1,000 square foot range. Preview the properties and plan your own route with the online map in this self-guided central Austin tour.
Advance tickets are available until Friday for $25, while tickets on the day of the tour are $30. Your ticket lets you peek into all the homes on the tour to discover smart, functional, maximizing space solutions and ideas that promote this exciting design trend. We'll see you there.
If you don't live in Austin, or can't make the tour get your small spaces fix by checking on our Small Cool Contest — that we're still gathering together entries for. This is our exciting annual contest where our readers showcase their fabulous design skills and creativity used to create a reflection of themselves in a home under 1000 sq. ft.
