7 Tiny Places People Live In And Call It Home

Living in a city that has been nicknamed the “little red dot”, it is no wonder that most homeowners do not have the luxury of hundreds of square metres of space to implement their home design ideas. Fret not though! These 8 homes are fine examples of how to transform a small space into a home that is big enough for all your dreams.

1. The designer behind this tiny home worked some magic to make the small unit appear magically bigger. The floor-to-ceiling mirror in the living room and retractable table at the kitchen island creates the illusion of space. In the bedroom, a storage bed is a practical choice which keeps things tidy while the shelving installed into the pillar at the corner of the room makes a great display area for all the homeowner's treasured handbags!

2. Creativity is the defining factor of this condominium home. We love the shelving unit that houses the TV set. Besides variations in the wooden tones, the bookshelf is a mishmash of open shelving and drawers which come in various heights and lengths. The charming addition of a rolling ladder gives the finishing touch to the cool varsity feel of this space while making it easy for the homeowners to access the tall cupboards.

3. Make a small space look like two by introducing segregating glass panel. The full height glass panel separates both the bedroom and living spaces to create a space of intimacy without sacrificing privacy. Compliment the dual usage of spaces with a good selection of furniture and you have a space with an attitude for a bachelor or a space for small families to enjoy.

4. This home achieves the industrial look effortlessly while keeping everything compact. Industrial metal boxes within the living area keep to the industrial theme while also doubling up as storage units. Likewise, drawers concealed under the stairs up to the bedroom reduce the need for external storage units and keeps the living space clutter-free.

5. Storage is key in this small condominium and we like how the feature wall cleverly integrates with the bedroom wardrobe and the side storage to display knick knacks. The designers do away with the use of bulky cubbyhole shelves and opted for sleek storage solutions. The openness of the space is also amplified by the open-concept kitchen and glass sliding door.

6. Working on a monochromatic colour scheme, this contemporary home exudes a sense of sophistication which is tinged with a hint of playfulness. In a space-saving and money-saving move, the homeowners have mounted a LCD TV screen onto a rotating partition between the living room and the bedroom. We also adore the door that is perfectly concealed within the living room walls.

7. Not one to allow the lack of space to put a damper on their design inspiration, these homeowners relied upon a variety of materials and textures to create a wonderfully eclectic home. A wooden panel runs across the ceiling and walls of the living room, breaking up the monotony of the space while in the hallway, Peranakan floor tiling adds a quaint flavour to the space.
