This is my 400 square foot apartment in downtown Toronto and I love small space living! My space is practical and functional for my needs. The mirrored closet has more than sufficient storage space for me. In addition to clothes, it houses an extra folding chair, my laser printer, some documents, and much more!

I would say that my most prized item is my beautiful fiddle leaf fig. (I’ve named her Carla!) I think plants are so important, especially in a small space.

I even have room to workout as you can see with my set of adjustable dumbbells. I also have a pull-up bar (that I can put in the bathroom doorway) and a couple of medicine balls (that are tucked away under my bed). I just roll out a yoga mat to protect the floor and I’m good to go.

I love my workspace. Wall-mounting my monitors freed up a lot of desk space. Plus, when I have company over, I can simply put away the mouse and keyboard and pull out the desk to use as a games or dining table.

My bathroom is quite large for such a small space. A combo washer-dryer machine is in the closet along with some extra storage space (toilet paper has got to so somewhere!).

Thanks, Balki B.!
