Cidjay has earned our congratulations for winning the HomeByMe December Project of the Month! Her design for the JS-APPART-03 project gives 792 ft² / 74 m² of livable space. As you’ll see, that is plenty of space when the layout is this good. To see a few more examples of nicely designed smaller spaces take a look at our recent blog post, 10 Homes – small is beautiful.
Looking at Cidjay’s home in plan view, it’s easy to see that the entrance (blue arrow) gives you two directions to go. To the left (red arrow), you’ll be in the private areas. To the right (yellow arrow), you’ll be in the more open family areas. There’s even enough room for a terrace!
Looking to the right as you enter, you’ll see the coat closet on the left and the living room straight ahead. Let’s go in that direction first.
A nice open grouping leaves plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing.
It’s only a few short steps into the dining area and beyond that, the kitchen.
It’s worth a slight detour to check out the terrace and enjoy being outdoors.
Going back inside, you can see the casual eating area and then the kitchen.
The kitchen itself is a tidy design with everything very close at hand. It looks like it would be easy to prepare your snacks and meals.
At the same time you’re cooking, you have full access to the open areas so you can interact with your family or guests.
If you go left as you enter, you’ll find a centrally-located toilet on the right and then easy access to the bathroom at the end of the hall.
The bathroom textures, surfaces and colors are both warm and functional. The washing machine is in a great location for easy laundry duty.
There is a good-sized home office which is also being used as an exercise room. It could also serve as a small second bedroom or nursery if needed.
Whether working or playing, you would be comfortable here.
The bedroom layout takes full advantage of the double glass doors to make the room bright and inviting.
It’s a great hideaway spot for really relaxing and getting away from it all.
It’s your turn!
