These 10 Microflats Prove Size Doesn't Matter
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.

2. Light pastels and quirky, playful prints collide with dark steel doors that anchor the home's design, while adding an industrial touch to an otherwise ultra modern and chic abode.

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!)

5. With walls and floors fully decked in warm, light grained wood panels, this home's fun and immaculately curated furnishings give a manicured, almost doll-like appeal that we're going doe-eyed over.

6. If the walls obstruct, knock them down. This space embraces open concept living, creating an incredibly light and airy atmosphere that'll calm and soothe your body, mind and soul upon stepping in.

7. Monochrome never goes out of style. The dynamic interplay between black and white keeps your home looking classy. This tiny studio shows us just how it's done.

8. White is still the mainstay of most tiny homes, and with complementing light, neutral coloured furniture, it helps open up the living space by creating a clean white canvas to work on. Add a little personal touch with decor items you love!

9. Or go Japanese - Riding on its minimalist approach to maximise space, it's a popular theme for small homes. Japanese furniture are also smaller in size, making it easy to fit into narrow, tight areas.

10. For a more masculine makeover, emphasise form with distinct and bold lines in a darker palette. Taking the time to come up with smart storage solutions will help take away visual clutter from your home's striking new look.
