Love What You Live With in a Small Space
Big is beautiful, so the saying goes, but Polish designer Szymon Hanczar begs to differ.
Featured on design-milk.com, his 13 square metre city apartment is the ultimate lesson in how small space living is an art form. Says design-milk.com blog writer Caroline Williamson, “Somehow [Szymon Hanczar] was able to take his [tiny] city apartment and turn it into a surprisingly functional home that provides everything one might need or want. Besides being functional, the minimal space is pretty aesthetically amazing… The apartment contains a loft bedroom, kitchenette, a table, bike storage, a washing machine, storage and hammock. Perfect for a single person not looking for a huge place to maintain, which is exactly what Hanczar designed, while not having to give up any comfort or functionality.”
Futon Company says: Some people assume that it’s not possible to combine style with function. We beg to differ. When it comes to furnishing and styling a small space, the functional necessities come first but there are always clever design solutions to make a style statement, for example dual or multi-function furniture and products; utilising and making the most of wall space for savvy storage solutions and paring down accessories to what you need – but opt for products that you love.
Remember, in a small space less is more but you need to love what you live with.
