We ought to be thankful to live in the U.S. because of those extra spaces we have. We even have a big garage to store all of our junk =P (living the American dreams) Imagine people living in small tight spaces like in Japan or some other places, like big cities in Europe, where big space is a rarity. Actually, I wrote this topic because I just received an e-mail from a girl friend of mine with all pictures above as an attachment. She was inspired to create an additional bathroom that conserve space at her home. Now that it’s done, I thought she did a remarkable job. It’s amazing how we can actually utilize and conserving spaces whether through remodeling or new-built extensions to our living spaces, however we never actually take that into our consideration, cuz I think, we all just get too comfortable with all the big spaces we have =).
Having to deal with small spaces aren’t all that bad after all. Actually with a good design you can work it all into a very lovable space. Try to play with colors, materials, and functions. All together will make it worth doing – because I’ve seen it done at my friend’s place.
Thanks to Yuli for all the pictures and tips.
