The Way Designers Transformed This Tiny 22m2 (236ft2) Space Is Genius
As housing prices keep going up, people are choosing smaller, more affordable homes. Many times these homes come with a challenge – to use all of the available space for all necessary furniture and household appliances. One design team from Taipei City, Taiwan, called ‘A Little Design’ have taken on such a challenge for one of their customers.
The idea was to maximize all of the available space in a 22sq.m (236ft. sq) apartment. This was no simple task – the owner asked for a mezzanine floor for their bed and desk, flexible shelves and most importantly – a bathtub. The company succeeded with flying colors – the finished apartment is both cozy and practical. It’s certainly the kind of apartment you wouldn’t mind coming back to after a hard day at work!
We think that in the near future, with real estate prices steadily rising, homes like these will start to become even more popular. So take some inspiration from the photos of this cozy apartment in the gallery below!
