Think you can live in, work in, and share a small apartment?
That’s what I do with my 500-square-foot apartment that I’m showing you today.
Small Apartment Design for Live/Work
I took my apartment’s dimensions, design and layout and did my best to match it.
Then I made some slight improvements that I thought would make it better.
Redesigning My Tiny Apartment in 3D
Check out the best photos (and video) below:
Besides a few things (below) my apartment identical to what you see in the photos (I’ll show you real pics next week and we can compare):
- I don’t have my own back porch or french doors (it’s really just a window in the bedroom)
- The furniture is almost the same except I added a loveseat and a comfy chair that I really don’t have (lol)
- I added a stackable washer/dryer unit in the hallway that we don’t really have (there’s actually a door there and I added shelving towards the ceiling so we can store toilet paper and paper towels up there)

More Angles in 3D
Yes – we have two doors! The apartment we’re currently in is just like this and I’m not sure why. But one door is wider than the other.

Why the Big Dining Table?
We’ve got that oversized dining table so we can use it for work and then when my friends and family come over there’s plenty of space to eat together comfortably and share some laughs over a meal because that’s what life’s all about, right?
And Technically this is Tiny House Talk Headquarters
The dimensions are approximately 25’x20′.
Private Outdoor Space
My apartment doesn’t have this. We have shared outdoor space which is great. But something like this would be even better (so I added it to the design)..

I also added the barstools at the end of the kitchen which is something we don’t have (yet).

So what did you like best about this apartment? Could you, would you, or would you even want to live in a design like this? Would love to hear your thoughts on that..
And even better what sort of designs would you like to see me do next? LET ME KNOW in the comments (share links, etc. to if you have to). I’m going to shoot to create one of these a week.
