With a bit of creativity and ingenuity, even a small apartment can be turned into a comfortable and cosy home. To do this, you need to make sure that you’re using every centimetre of space available to you.
Here are 20 superb design ideas for small apartments to get you started.
A wardrobe built in to the corner of a room
A kid’s room inside a kid’s room
Three in one: a bedroom, a work desk and a wardrobe (the latter can double as a secret space for your child).
The disappearing bed
It makes for an impressive transformation of your bedroom/living room!
Keep books underneath you
Practical and comfortable. Superb!
Using corner space
Empty corner space often has as much room for things as a chest of drawers.
A rare combination of style and practicality.
A newspaper rack which is also a coat hanger
A really neat solution to your problems.
The removable drainage board
Get rid of the usual bulky drainage board and save a whole lot of space in the kitchen.
A chair which doubles as a coat rack
…or as a set of shelves
A fold-away kitchen
For those who cook very rarely!
A rational way to store shoes
You’ll never lose anything in the pile again!
Extra food storage in slide-out drawers
Everything available at your fingertips.
The bathroom cabinet with an ironing board
Another superb idea if you’ve got limited space
Hanging spices underneath the shelf
Just attach their lids to the underside of the shelf with screws!
Mini racks for pots and pans
You can easily get the one you need — saving both time and your temper.
Magnetic strips for storing spices
A great idea if you want to keep your spices in small metal tins.
Shelves close to the ceiling
For some reason, most of us rarely take advantage of the space around the door in our bathrooms. But look how useful it can be!
Make use of surfaces with holes and apertures
These specially designed wall boards help to save on space, get round the problem of drilling too many holes in the wall, and keep everything you need in plain sight.
Use the inside of cupboard doors
…as well as the outside
And finally, something really fantastic…
This one’s a dream come true!
