I also agree. Working in rooms which are filled with light is just more comfortable and a window would be a huge benefit. However I also like lots of well organized storage room.

Just to give you some ideas, here are two (actually 114) short videos which are shown functional furnitures for small apartments. Unfortunately they are all in German, however you don’t really have to understand what they are talking about because you'll see how it works.

A hidden ironing board


A hidden washer & dryer (it’s an all in one machine)


Regarding the light. Dark furniture “swallows” the light. So it would be better if the furniture was brighter. But just white would look in my opinion too sterile. I also feel the wood paneled ceiling is too massive. It overwhelms/squashes me. The ceiling and the walls above the cabinets should definitively be painted in a very bright color. This would reflect the incoming light and makes the room brighter.

In addition to this I would install a skylight. http://www.velux.ca/en/consumer/products/sun_tunnel_skylights http://www.velux.ca/en

I find it elegant and classy like a fine cocktail bar. I can picture a silver ice bucket on the marble counter, red long stem roses. Socks and soap would be totally out of place.
