These Micro-Flats (Under 500 sqft) Are Small Space Goals

February 13, 2018
BOOKMARK

There are many reasons to downscale a home. For instance, lower costs, less upkeep... and not having to walk miles just to get from one room to another.

And with today's shrinking apartment sizes, it is probably a reality we'll all have to face in the future. Still, just because your space is on the compact (okay really tiny) side doesn't mean you can't have a decent space! Take it from the master of shoebox apartments, Hong Kong - these 7 micro-flats under 500 sq. ft. (yes, believe it) filled with smart space saving and storage ideas are proof that size really doesn't matter.

This home proves just how large 450 sq. ft. of space can appear when the right design elements come together. Through its Nordic décor, a warm expression of natural tones and materials help expand the space considerably. Ample storage is appreciated in any home but in micros, it’s a necessity. Here we see plenty of cabinetry, cubbies and shelving that occupy the length and height of the walls for maximum capacity.

Who says you have to give up entertaining at home when yours is micro sized! This lovely 443 sq. ft. duplex is an interior décor wonder that manages to visually double the size of its appearance through strategic space planning. You can even host guests without having the space feel cramped. Moreover, built-in storage abounds, occupying wall spaces in a concealed style to keep the overall look clean and pristine.

Good lighting is crucial when it comes to micro spaces and this home is a shining example of what natural light coupled with bright interiors can do to widen any space. Largely untreated windows stream in plenty of natural light, unobstructed. In duskier spots, well-planned downcast ceiling lights wash the home in ambient, warm luminescence. The result is a visually loftier home that also appears inviting and homely.

If you assumed small-spaces are destined for Scandi or minimalist décor only, think again! This home throws around its weight with modern décor typically reserved for more stately spaces. With stylish neutral tones, masterful carpentry and perfectly balanced arrangement, this home feels both homey and sleek at the same time. Plenty of concealed storage is built-in to the furniture and cabinetry to make use of, rather take up more space.

A 369 sq. ft. home will generally not have a lot of space to work with but with clever interior design tricks, this home looks much more sizeable than it is. Clean and understated décor is rather befitting here as it plays up empty spaces and gives the home a ship-shape appearance. Neutral and natural tones, slim furniture as well as unadorned fixtures imbue this home with a low-key but stylish facade.

All design choices made here seem to perfectly complement this construct, which comes in at just 469 sq. ft. Olive hues, brick walls, slim-legged furniture, natural flooring, floral elements and modern art come together for a style and space-widening appeal! Open storage shelving in the living area adds to its easy-going charm while concealed cabinets refine the kitchen.

This tiny home has a whimsical air about it, thanks to delicious pops of colours and artful elements! As the smallest home on our list at 320 sq. ft., its designers deserve applause for their craftiness in gifting it with the perfect mix of style and practicality, while facing space limitations. Light flooring and walls visually extends height in the home while minimal window treatment help flood in natural light to further expand the space. Plenty of cavities were built into walls and furniture in matching hues, so as not to take up more space. Well done!
