Don't remove your tub! I rent a tiny apartment with a small shower (no tub) and I love my place but cannot wait to have a bath again someday. For one thing, it is incredibly annoying to do hand-washing without a bathtub, because it's annoying to fill up and dump out a basin in a shower and my sink is too small to do it in there. I really would advise against removing your tub. Maximize your bathroom's wall space like crazy, and get a free standing cabinet for your towels that you can keep in a different room. (I keep mine in a dresser in the entryway.)

It's like you read my mind. I am moving into a tiny rectangular studio, with the kitchen all out in the open, in July, and I've been obsessing over the floorplan. I think I'm going to end up with my bed next to the range, with a narrow bookshelf between them.

I want to know where they got that desk! Anyone?

The Barcelona chair is so lonely in that corner-- relocate it to another room, where it will be better appreciated, or put under the window closest to the closets, where it could function as a sort of slipper chair.

And in lieu of dressers out in the room, I second others' ideas to have substantial nightstands w/storage, and put smaller dressers in the closets.

I like the panda trash can, too. And even if I didn't, I wouldn't bother to disparage it! Get a life!

Your place is great, Megan. Amazing work on the kitchen. But where do you sleep??

Wow, Ann! Great use of natural light, and I am so impressed by how many little separate areas you get out of a tiny, open square. Just gorgeous!
