What I Love About My Small Home:
I love the see-thru brick wall, it makes the entire space visible, but with the right amount of privacy. I also love the fact that it has windows on both sides and a balcony, so there's a lot of natural light and natural ventilation.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space:
1 - Don't waste space with a lot of circulation areas. Smart space planning for small spaces should focus on, identify and eliminate unnecessary hallways, corridors, etc.
2 - Merge different spaces in a way that makes sense according to the function. For example: the seat at one side of the dining table can be a long bench that works as a ottoman for the living room side.
3 - Don't be scared of large pieces if furniture. It is a mistake to choose tiny furniture for a small space. The right thing to do is to find the balance between large and small pieces.
