We converted a garage into a very small apartment. I love the exceptionally high ceilings, the tiny kitchen, the modern design, the high window that lets light from the main room into the bathroom but still preserves privacy. Two outdoor patios flank the apartment which extends living space to outside.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
1. Scale furnishings to fit the space. Instead of a sofa, we have two upholstered chairs that take up much less space. 2. Streamline appliances. We found a microwave that is also a convection oven and a grill. With a portable induction cooktop, it functions as a stove on a small utility cart. A small refrigerator is under the counter. A narrow stainless steel table functions as a food prep table and a dining table. 3. Art and color make a small space feel like the home that it is.
