Bratislava ApartmentIndustrial Kitchen
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Industrial-Modern Studio in SlovakiaLocation: Bratislava, SlovakiaSize: 516 square feetAfter gutting his industrial apartment, this homeowner was left with little else but concrete vaulted ceilings and an open space. With only one client in mind — himself — he was able to customize the space exactly to his needs. This floor-to-ceiling shelf helps divide the bathroom from the kitchen, while the living room and bedroom remain open to each other. See more of this home

The kitchen has a lovely blue countertop below a window. The tall shelves on the left provide plenty of storage yet let light through the space (remember the first example doing something similar on a smaller scale).See more of this homeMore creative homes of 500 square feet or less:Efficient Manhattan Studio500-Square-Foot Charmer in Santa CruzIndustrial Minihouse in SeattleMobile Microliving in OregonTiny Fold-Out Apartment in BarcelonaIngenious Garage Makeover in Bordeaux
A transparent glass wall behind the open shelving divides the kitchen from the bathroom. "I wanted to put a small dining and work table there in the kitchen and enlarge the apartment in general, so I had to push the bathroom back — way back. It was a game with millimeters; I was working within a strip of space that was barely over 3 feet wide," says Kordik.
