There are so many great examples of how to utilize space in small apartment and we just featured an extreme example of a 16Sqm flat converted from a former master bathroom. Designer are trying really hard to make each inch of the space and some people might don’t like it since it is just too complicated. In those designs, mostly like you don’t have your dedicated bedroom area – you either sleep on a convertible sofa or have your bed in the air. There are nothing wrong with it, but someone might not want to go that extreme and still want comfortable, spacious and modern looking living space.
