It can be difficult to know if small-space living is truly for you without giving it a good test drive. Recently, I had the opportunity for a short test myself when my daughter and I spent a week in a lovely apartment in the stylish Marais neighborhood of Paris. Our flat was slightly over 400 square feet and had one bedroom, one bathroom and a combination living room and kitchen. We instantly fell in love with our small, light-filled appartement.During our stay, I frequently wondered what it would be like to live in such a compact space permanently. Along the way, I compiled a list of essential features for my ideal small apartment. Of course, this is my personal list and your needs might vary. But it could be a good starting point in terms of thinking through your own priorities for living in a diminutive dwelling.1. Features that make a small space seem larger. An abundance of natural light can make a small apartment feel bigger. For me, a bright, open ambiance in my home is nonnegotiable. If you also crave a well-lit, airy dwelling, think about selecting an apartment that has these features: high ceilings, light-colored walls, an open floor plan and light woodwork and floors. You may also want to pay attention to the number and size of windows and the direction they face. Consider whether you prefer morning or afternoon light, and notice the sun’s rhythms as you’re considering potential smaller homes. Keep in mind that heavy window coverings can decrease the amount of light a room receives, so when looking at potential homes you’ll want to uncover windows completely before you eliminate a possible contender. Tip: Mirrored closets reflect light and can make a cramped bedroom seem larger. They can be added relatively inexpensively.
