This 107-Square-Foot Apartment Defies Its Tiny Size

Peek inside the tiny Swedish home that will change everything you ever thought you knew about small-space living.

Decorating a small space can be tricky, especially if it's roughly the size of a generous walk-in closet. If you think living in a 500-square-foot apartment (or anything less) sounds terrifying, this 107-square-foot apartment may convince you otherwise.

The inspiring Swedish abode makes the most of its lack-thereof-layout by playing with balance and bold accessories, getting clever with the room’s sightlines, and taking advantage of the unit's high ceilings. When all’s said and done, the miniscule home doesn’t seem so tiny. Just see for yourself.

While we realize that this cramped cookhouse just won’t cut it for amateur chefs or folks who like to entertain, there’s no denying that the kitchen is pretty unbelievable given the apartment’s teeny circumstances. The high-gloss finishes and stainless steel mini-oven give the all-white kitchen a sleek edge while the hanging fixtures and cookbook nook make it a practical place to work in.

Just off the kitchen sits the combined living and dining space that can teach us a thing or two about the power of restraint. Instead of cluttering the room with a collection of little knickknacks, the room is anchored by a few key accessories and objects that don’t overwhelm the size of the space.

Of course the room covers the essentials by incorporating a cute breakfast nook for two and what appears to be a convertible lounge chair, but it also goes beyond the basics. The petite apartment thoughtfully balances its soft, neutral tones and minimalist decor against larger, bolder items that add character—like the round statement mirror and black-and-white portrait.

There’s something special about being able to view your entire home from the comfort of your couch. A charming ladder leads to the loft without disrupting crucial sightlines.

Up in the bedroom? Yet another lesson in self-control. The chic sleeping spot is surrounded by a carefully curated artwork display and instantly brought to life via the large potted plant that sits at the corner of the bed.

Our favorite bedroom hack, however, has to be the stack of magazines that double as a nightstand.

At first glance, this absolutely stunning bathroom doesn’t seem to fit with the home’s tiny attitude. Here, mod finishes, clean lines, high ceilings, and a parallel sink create a no-fuss space we can definitely work with.

Could you live comfortably in 107 sq ft? We’re starting to think so.
