1 | Visualizer: Adrian IancuThe first apartment from visualizer Adrian Iancu takes the vertical design idea and runs with it. A lofted bedroom area might seem like a natural solution for a super small space, but the design here is particularly well executed.
A custom built staircase climbs up to the bedroom, using the same wood that makes up the compact kitchen and breakfast bar. By utilizing the same materials, the space actually feels bigger because of the cohesive colors.
Of course, plenty of natural light is always ideal for a small space and this apartment has that, too.
8 | Designer: ZucchiniThe next apartment is a 25 square meter (269 square feet) one designed for housing one person. Sliding doors and small partitions help separate spaces in this home without using up too much space.
6 | Instead of sofa end tables, tiny shelves provide a place for reading lamps and beverages.
When it comes to designing comfortable homes when there is little square footage to work with, there are many places to look for a solution. Many designers start, understandably, with the ceiling. When you have vertical space to grow, the possibilities for design open up, from lofted beds to skylights, there are a litany of different ways to make a small space feel bigger and provide the occupant with all the necessary nooks and crannies. These four micro apartments each put their own spin on super small spaces, but the results are all equally beautiful.
1 | First things first, you cannot have a tranquil space with all of your random ‘stuff’ cluttering up your zen. So take a tip from this small open plan space and hide everything away in a generous bank of tall storage units.
When there isn’t much floor space you should always look up, high ceilings become a clutter-bug’s friend when it comes to finding installation space for cupboards fit for some crafty concealing. These units have been built in a plain white material so that they blend into the surroundings rather than stand out, whilst a couple of display shelves have been picked out in light wood tone, floating against a skyscape of fluffy white clouds.

39 | Designer: Benoit MarcThe third apartment, from designer Benoit Marc, goes back to the lofted ideal with its tall ceilings. Like the first space, this one also uses natural wood element, for their aesthetic as well as ecological appeal.
One way the apartment saves on space is by forgoing a traditional sofa and using portable, compact bean bag chairs for communal seating.
2 | The home office area extends right out of the storage bank, which gives easy access to files and stationery supplies.

23 | Visualizer: Nicholas VashantsevThis next apartment measures just 15 square meters (161 square feet) which is tiny, even compared to other micro apartments. With no space to loft the bedroom, the designer here has gone with the next best option, which is a convertible bed that can function as both a sofa and a bed (some would call it a futon).
Multipurpose objects like this, as well as hidden storage such as the creative sliding closet, are absolutely essential if an apartment this size is going to be livable.
This dinky apartment layout holds a whole host of cool features, designed by Lera Curve, who might have us consider: â€œSmall space is not a reason not to dream of something more, something light, airy and beautiful. Maximize open space, light walls, light furniture, natural materials and color accents create a feeling of spaciousness and freshness.â€ This urban situated home interior has been created to give the dweller a sense of existing outside the city when at home, a place to feel the freshness of nature and a sense of rooted tranquility.
9 | Even a small dining area has been made possible in this well thought out space.
44 | Visualizer: Anastasia Shamisova The final space is a 28 square meter (301 square feet) studio apartment in Surgut, Russia, as designed for a young woman who is also a student. By creating a slightly elevated pace for the small kitchen, the studio immediately feels like it has more space by way of multiple rooms.
A low wall separates the sleeping area from the rest of the apartment for at least the illusion of a bit of privacy.
4 | On the opposite wall, bold green tree silhouette wallpaper spans the area, along with two floor to ceiling mirrors that create the illusion of extra space and light.
3 | The unique pendant lights are a great touch that brings more visual interest to the space.
5 | A wall mounted entertainment unit prevents the floorspace from being eaten up, and a flatscreen TV keeps things sleek.
11 | Colorful choices in the shower room/utility room distract the eye from its limited proportions.
3 | The desk is of a ingenious design that swings away to disappear into a slot left between the cupboards, leaving the living space clear and spacious looking. Over at the windows, roman blinds in a delicate floral fabric introduce playful hints of a countryside setting.
