I live in a 40sq meter tiny home – it feels so much larger, the doors and window location give the illusion of space | The Sun

A PROFESSIONAL house renovator has made life in her 40-square-meter tiny home appear enviable thanks to some clever design.

Creative positioning of doors and windows gave this place the impression of being far larger than it actually was.

They also had the effect of flooding this property with light. You will find no dark, cramped spaces in this building.

The idea came from Kara Demmrich (@kyalandkara), who, with her partner Kyal, renovate buildings in Australia.

Together, they have perfected the art of small-space living and offered some tips honed from their experience.

“Small spaces don’t have to be boring," said Kara in her post. "So here are five tips on how to make the most out of small space living."

First up was sliding doors: “They stack right back into a cavity so when they’re open it really does feel like the outside is connected to the inside," she wrote.

Windows were positioned high up, an important design feature she believed.

"It gives the illusion of more space and there’s so much natural light."

The kitchen area was all smooth lines with space for everything.

“We have a kitchenette here with integrated appliances like a fridge and a dishwasher drawer and it means we can pack a lot into a small space."

Everything had been considered for in this teeny tiny home, including storage, often an issue for small houses.

“We’ve also utilized the high ceilings for storage and we’ve run the cupboards right up to the very top," explained Kara.

“In the bathroom, we’ve used a skylight instead of a window which means not using wall space but it also helps with ventilation."

There were no internal doors in their design, opting instead for an open-plan layout.

“The room is separated only by this big blockout curtain which means we can open it right up or close it off.”

Her post had 39,000 likes with many commenters saying they could only dream of a home like theirs.

“Can you please design my house, this is exactly what I want," said one person.
