    sigh…so happy to see this. I just rented a teeny place that is laid out well, and was thinking of how I can hide my bed in one of the corners. SCORE!!!

    In Sydney ( Australia) a studio means a space about 290 square feet in size. A single open room includes a ‘kitchenette’ on one wall or in a corner and a tiny bathroom in another corner. There is no entry hall, no separate kitchen and almost never a nook for a bed, let alone a dining room/space. This apartment looks awesome to start with but I must admit the room divider is a fantastic addition. Well done.

    LOVE this. Also love the mad men mural – any chance designguy would divulge the source for that?

    Bottom line – Toronto’s a scam

    Some of that would be because basements don’t exist in Texas. Seriously.

    Basement apartments are really common in pretty much every major city in the US.

    ROFL so true about Toronto. The entire real estate market in Toronto’s a bloody scam. Where else would you find an entire city filled with the so called “basement apartments”?

    BTW, awesome hack. Maybe I can use this for my home recording studio.

    they have a dining room! in toronto, that apartment would be considered a 1+den!

    in all seriousness, it looks great.
