- What I Love About My Small Home:
- I love the big windows that allow a lot of natural light to enter my small space. Even though my apartment is tiny, it allows me to have a nice view of the canal and house boats. I dont feel that I live in a small space. There are six big windows in my 2 floor apartment.
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- My small apartment is split into 2 levels, with approximately 250 square feet on each level. The first level functions as my living, dining, kitchen and work areas. There is also a foyer. The second level is where my bedroom and bathroom are located. The main challenge is to have an open space and still create distinct areas for lounging, eating, cooking and working. Instead of going for a traditional dining table, I opted to design a multi-functional kitchen island that becomes the focal point for activities. I also played with proportions, texture, color and furniture arrangement.
