This Is What A Tiny $500K Apartment Looks Like In Sweden
There are a few things style savvy homebuyers look for when house-hunting in terms of design, and this Sweden apartment has all of them: Tall windows, gorgeous natural light, high ceilings and heaps of character (those charming radiators!). The one-bedroom apartment in Stockholm’s coveted Södermalm neighborhood is listed for 3,450,000 Swedish krona, which translates roughly to $508,000 Canadian dollars. Though it’s only 462-square-feet, the clever layout means there’s room for a dining table, separate bedroom and comfortable living space. See inside the light-filled apartment and we think you’ll agree; in this case, size is secondary to great style.
The listing copy highlights the apartment’s four large windows, and it’s easy to see why — their impressive height and deep ledges make them a definite selling feature.
The dining area opens up to the small galley kitchen. Space-saving solutions like the wall-mounted knife magnet and floating open shelves ensure maximum function.
In the kitchen, a white subway tile backsplash and matte black countertop and range hood are on-trend, yet simple enough for the new homeowner to incorporate their own style.
There’s a tiny eat-in nook next to the kitchen, which is actually part of the same space as the bedroom. A gilded mirror in the corner is a bedroom essential, and also helps expand the space.
On another note, we wonder if those vintage pendant lights are included in the sale?
The dining area is part of the main living area. A single yellow pendant helps define the space, while house plants play off the natural light.
A TV is hidden seamlessly within this bold gallery wall.
The living room fits a sofa and statement chair, making the space large enough for entertaining guests. A vintage ladder adds architectural detail, while sculptural accents offer a graphic hit.
The room is full of small space ideas, like the cord lights seen here which provide brightness without taking up floor space.
A tan leather bag acts as decor on the door that leads to the bedroom.
Grey linen bedding invites a cozy sleep, while a lucite book holder is a cute and quirky addition.
Here’s the gilded mirror we referenced earlier that sits next to the breakfast nook in the bedroom.
Straight-set subway tiles clad the walls in the bathroom.
