Small Space Solutions from a Tiny Tokyo Home

CNN

A video tour of an almost unbelievably ultra small 3 story home home with a footprint of 30 square meters (about the size of a single parking space!) yields tons of small space solutions…

You never know where inspiration will come from - a Design Sponge tweet today pointed us in the direction of the CNN story. And while the situation might be extreme, the ideas that this mother and son pair utilize are helpful for small space dwellers everywhere.

Shown above:
1. Fuyuhito Moriya and his mother, residents of the super small space
2. Storage closets are built into what would be unused corner space
3. A triangular spiral staircase takes up the minimum amount of space for travel between the tree floors
4. Dedicated storage keeps things like the family's shoes organized and out of the way
5. Counter height appliances are used
6. A half size sink in the bathroom
7. Curtains replace interior doors
8. Other appliances are hidden in pull out cabinets
