Designer Dan Marentic shares a look inside his minimalist 685-square-foot condo that’s filled with smart storage ideas and space-saving solutions. See how he maximizes every square foot.

“Though still very small, my new condo has considerably more head room than my sister’s garage (and it’s warmer!).  Many of the same storage challenges existed here, but I’ve tried to take advantage of every nook and cranny and add a few unique details as well,” says Dan. In the kitchen, additional storage hides bulky appliances, while a natural stone quartz island provides extra prep space. Multifunctional furniture increases seating in the small living room, where a mod fireplace and quirky artwork inject personality. Storage is maximized in the bedroom with custom built-ins, and the den doubles as as a second bedroom and home office thanks to a Murphy bed.
