This weekend I decided to fly to Munich to help my boyfriend out with his new tiny studio. He moved in on Thursday and there was no furniture at all. Therefore, we planned to spend all Saturday in Ikea, Butlers and Tkmaxx to find the perfect pieces of furniture and miscellaneous stuff, as he always says – although, I think towels are quite important, don’t you think so?
I’ve been thinking about how to take advantage of this experience so I decided to write a series of posts where I talk you through all the process of us trying to make this small space – 27m² to be more specific – into a nice and cozy home. I know some of you are dying to see the end result. However, I know that a lot of people would be interested in knowing how to make the most out of a really tiny space where you need to have a kitchen and dining area, a sort of lounge or relax area and your own bed – and don’t forget you also need to have space to store all of your clothes, suitcases and stuff you don’t want to have laying around for everyone to see.
This first post will be all about the brainstorm we did before actually buying all the furniture. Where will we put the bed? Wait, we need some space for the dining table! I want a sofa…! Do we want an extendable table or not? These are a few of the issues we encountered along the process. However, although we knew it was going to be very tough, we accepted the challenge and tried to do our best! PS: we also had my father’s help! As I told you in a previous post, he’s a carpenter and he’s really good at making everything fit and look perfect 🙂
Bel0w you will see the three layout options we came up with and some pictures of the studio without furniture but a inflatable bed. Hope you like it and stay tuned as I will write new blog posts where you will get to see the final results!
