500 Square Foot Apartment in Göteborg, Sweden

I've been keeping this inspiring small apartment in my blog arsenal just waiting for Small Spaces Month to arrive. Now that it's finally here, I'm happy to show you this stunner. While the white flooring, architectural details and gigantic windows definitely give the apartment a head start, it ups the ante with some smart tricks.

Here are a couple of tips gained from this apartment:

  • The floating shelves take use of the expansive wall space that would otherwise be covered with artwork. Beyond just the walls, the shelves also go above the doorway taking advantage of an oft overlooked space for storage.

  • The living area is divided by a built in wall allowing there to be a separation of spaces between living and sleeping. This wall is particularly successful because it stops short of the ceiling maintaining a sense of openness in the room.
