Just because you have a petite kitchen doesn't mean you can't have big culinary skills. Take for example Deb from The Smitten Kitchen. She's done some impressive cooking/baking in her 80 square foot NYC apartment's kitchen. To put her space in perspective, her oven is 3/4 size and she only has
Hans Liberg has a log cabin for a recording studio that's more loggy than most. But even for all its logginess, its unique construction makes if feel anything but traditional, in a log cabin sense. That's because it was put together by Hans's friend, furniture designer, Piet Hein Eek. If you're familiar with some of Piet's
Sibylle's dining room wasn't used as a dining room. (More of a 'deposit' room.) That's all changed, and BIG time. Before, it looked like a walk in closet. A fresh coat of white paint, a mirror, a DIY chandelier, and some Ikea items later, it's
This just in: Size really doesn't matter in the bedroom department. What does matter is style! And these teeny-tiny boudoirs are loaded with it.
First up is designer Jen Chu's bedroom. She not only did she fit a large 4-poster bed and a glittery chandelier in her diminutive bedroom but a
Closets turned home offices are not a new subject around here, but I spotted some at Downsize My Space that need a second glance. Especially the one pictured above. The closet acts as a credenza of sorts, and
Join Dr. Mike Page from the University of Hertfordshire and The Cube Project as he takes us on a tour of the Cube, a 3x3x3m home for one (or two very friendly people) that has minimal impact on the environment. And, yes, it has a
Remember Felice's 90 square foot Upper East Side NYC microstudio apartment? Well, Steve Sauer's Seattle diggs is huge in comparison, but at 182 square feet, it's still pretty small.
Just how small does an apartment have to be before it's qualified as a 'microstudio?' In the case of Felice Cohen's Upper West Side apartment, that figure would be 90 square feet. She pays $700 a month in rent. Comparatively, the average rent for an Upper West Side pad is $3,600. Watch the video below to see how Felice lives in such a tiny place, and then answer this question: Could you live in 90 square feet?
Oh boy, what couldn't you do with a tiny, modern home in your backyard?! Especially when the materials only cost $200.
Artificial evergreen never looked so good. Bits of bough shoved into wine corks fashion the perfect little trees. They look sweet in a collection, as pictured above, but I imagine they'd look cute at each place setting of a holiday table. All you need
Generally, when we think of Victorian homes, we think of something a lot bigger than this! The little Catskill gem started its life as a hunting cabin, but Sandra Foster turned it into
How do you pack a living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and hallway into an apartment that measures 11' x 3" wide by 16' x 2" deep by 10' x 4" tall? You add a second floor, of course. The owner, airplane interiors engineer and Seattle resident Steve Sauer, is quite happy with his compact crib, which includes a soaking tub
A 12 x 12 foot bedroom is a pretty good sized bedroom, no? Now imagine if that room's dimensions were the dimensions of an entire house. Well, that's the size of James Stuart's Twelve3 prefab home.
Cabins should be small. And they could look like cabins...inside and out. Otherwise they really aren't 'cabins' are they? So now that I've gotten that decree out of the way, check out this little gem from Montana Mobile Cabins. It's a tidy little 14' x 20' and
We've seen tiny homes before, but HuffPo has put together 7 totally entertaining videos (and images) of tiny homes and the people that live in them. They offer insightful and thought-provoking arguments for serious downsizing.
Laurana turned her 16 square foot walk-in closet into the cutest craft room EVER! Here's the amazing after:
Last week MWT brought home this cute little two-story house with a request that it be remodeled for entry into a 'parade of homes' contest sponsored by the company for which he works. There was no word as to whether prizes will be given out to the best remodel, but, seriously, did I care?! Of course not! It was a teeny house just ready for a makeover! Here's the outcome:
Tiny and off the grid, could there be anything better? This 100 square foot home is part of the Human Landscape exhibit currently underway in City Hall Park in Burlington, Vermont, which runs until October 24, 2009.
This little apartment in Sweden might be short on space, but, because it's long on style, you don't even notice! Decor8 observantly points out the generous use of Ikea pieces,
Peter Riches, a retired builder from Hove, Sussex, has spent the last 15 years building this miniature mansion. Oftentimes staying up until 3 am working on it, Peter made the home's shell out of plaster into which he hand-etched 32,000 bricks. If that wasn't impressive enough, he also cut the 5,000 tiles he used for roofing material.
