BOOKMARK

As far as small apartments go, the city of Hong Kong really takes the cake. Think your home is small? Think again - Hong Kong features some ultra mini spaces at a claustrophobic 12 sqm! We look to these 10 tiny apartments that prove a great design can combat any space constraints.

1. Retreat back to your own cosy private sanctuary; in a chic ensemble of white, beige and greys, this little nook is easy on the eyes and manages to appear way more spacious than it is.

3. Utilising a wooden platform to create a separate study and work space, it also doubles as a storage unit with plenty of space right under your toes. The same design concept comes into play in the bedroom.

4. Instead of bright and airy, think dark and cosy! Opting for a little sheen to your dark grey palette will add that suburban cool perfect for city dwellers. (With your posse over, drink it up at that clever extendable island-cum-dining table!)
