In a small space, windows are everything.

For spaciousness, face furniture towards a window. Try an under-counter kitchen with windows spanned across the entire counter area.

In a small space, change old habits.

Store a wardrobe in pull-out baskets beneath a daybed or sofa bed. Iron as needed. Store a set of stackable pans, dishes and a utensil basket beneath a kitchen sink. Choose 24" kitchen appliances. Store towels and cosmetic baskets on narrow shelving over a toilet.

Eat with a plate in your lap. Convert all media to a handheld computer.

Find creative alternatives or learn to go without.

To save space and omit the kitchen shelf, add shelving in between the framework.

Place the kitchen towards the back of the building and face the furniture towards the window to enjoy the view.

To save space, store items in pull-out baskets beneath a daybed, dine or study at a folding shelf beneath a window sill and try a small gas heater.

Tiny houses are difficult to zone, insure and sell. Lofts are impractical for the elderly or aged.

As a minimalist, a daybed or sofa bed with under-bed storage works well. Small 24" kitchen appliances can be found at Compact Appliance online.

Many things seem recycled and easy to replicate without a large expense.
