A small one-bedroom apartment gets a sleek and stylish makeover

Don't let the size of today's space-starved dwellings get you down. This small one-bedroom condo unit shows that good things can come in small packages! All you need is a little creativity, as exemplified by this interior designer.


The home has an almost minimalist design, with understated carpentry and contemporary furniture, which keeps the overall look fuss-free and yet stylish.

The dining table has a neat swivelling feature — it can be tucked into the panelling for more space in the living area!

A full stretch of mirrors between the countertop and top-hung cabinets not only enhances the linear design of the built-in carpentry, but visually doubles the space.

A ceiling detail above the dining area helps to zone the open-concept home without the use of spatial dividers that occupy precious floor area.

In the kitchen area, wine storage is incorporated into the bar counter — both a space-saving and decorative detail.

A slim panel conceals storage for folding chairs, which are used when the homeowners entertain guests.

The entrance to the bedroom is located just beside the dining table and is integrated unobtrusively into the wall panelling.

Inside the bedroom, the design concept is consistent, making use of the same woodgrain finishes and streamlined carpentry details.
