Wanna tax your design skills? Move into a tiny space and see what happens. Already in a tiny space? Then you know all  the challenges designing such a space entails. It’s also why you might be much better at being organized than your McMansion counterparts. You need to be tidy if you want to maximize your space! Much as the occupants of these postage stamp places who have perfected tiny living that enables them to live large.

This tiny house built in Berkley, CA cost $98,000 to build. (Inexpensive in the Berkley housing market, I’m guessing.) It’s a Net-Zero energy house and is powered by a 1.67 Kw solar system. Rather rustic on the outside. . .

It’s beautiful, and even though the house is small, with good organization, it’s big enough for a family of four. It has a ‘library’ that surpasses most regular-sized homes, thanks to built-ins from floor to nearly ceiling. (Be sure to click the link to see more pictures!)

It might be more RV than house, but on the inside, you wouldn’t know it. (Aside from it’s size, maybe.) Seating for a crowd. . .

From tiny homes to tiny apartments, these city dwellers know how to nest with the best. Located in Sweden, this 355 square foot apartment (a mansion compared to some of the little houses we just looked at) is perfection pure and simple.

The transition from room to room is seamless, which makes it feel like one large space versus several small, defined areas. The simple color palette and kitchen cabinets are two ways this is accomplished. Instead of using open shelving, the occupant takes advantage of drawer space which eliminates clutter and adds to the design’s seamless quality.

At 46 square meters this apartment has a similar color palette as our last two offerings, which also adds to its airy quality. And, again, note the simple kitchen (hardware-less) cabinets that almost disappear into the surroundings.

And check out its bathroom/laundry room combo. Very efficient!

And our last entry, Joann’s place. It’s tiny, but it has a big heart. Instead of trying to find storage for her gorgeous bike, she presents it as art.

In her bedroom, a draped skirt is used to hide bits and bobs stored underneath the bed, and instead of a headboard, she opted for a floating shelf for more storage.
