More and more people are choosing to scale down on square meters.
And I gotta thinking, what would it take for a family of 4
to live comfortably in a 30 square meter home?
When you’re family 4 living in 30 square meters,
privacy become super important.
So come on in and we’ll show you
how we created privacy for this family.
It might not look like it, but this space is actually
a three-bedroom space.
And one of the ways we did it was
by using our kitchen cabinets and building a wooden frame on them
to create cubbies for the kids.
So you open this up,
and it’s their own little world.
She can come up here and just be alone,
and have some time to herself.
She’s got space for her private things.
Space to display the things that she likes.
And generally just space to spend some time alone.
She’s even got a space for her own clothes here,
hanging space and her jewelry and all the things that she likes,
that she wants to keep private in just to herself.
She can keep here,
even her own seasonal stuff in the very back.
Here we’ve created space for her all of the folded clothes.
So all of the things that are just hers.
She has plenty of space for.
Now the parents,
they also need their own private storage space.
And here you have it.
And this little wardrobe
we’ve managed to fill all of their clothes with help of
things like pull-out hangers,
and storage boxes for storing shoes, and folded clothes.
All of their small stuff we organize
in this nice little storage pocket system.
So it becomes super easy to organize
and easy to see what’s what
In a small space like this, it doesn’t really work
to have doors that open out.
So you really wanna think about siding doors
or even as we’ve done a curtain,
and the bonus is that even works with the wardrobe lighting.
The bathroom is where we have a lot of personal items.
So to help this family know whoes is whoes,
we’ve color-coordinated the different boxes.
So each family member has their own,
and it’s even color-coordinated
to the towel, that’s theirs.
So they know exactly what’s what.
So you might be wondering
where do the parents sleep in this space?
Follow me and I’ll show you.
These are the steps up to their bedroom.
Along the way, they’ve stored things like tools and medicine
that they don’t want the kids
to have access to all the time.
And here is where they sleep.
It’s a super cozy place that’s just for them,
with all the things they need.
They’ve got their private things in these baskets
that just pull out easily there.
And this is where they can come and
just get away for a while.
A cozy little spot that’s just for them.
