Tiny but mighty Tiny but mighty
Studio and convertible one-bedrooms can be seen as the Swiss Army knife of apartment living. Spaces - not to mention furniture - for sleeping, cooking, dining, and entertaining often do double duty, and organization and space must become religion when it comes to staying sane in a small space. But whether you're setting up a starter home, seeking a pied-a-terre to provide refuge when you're in town, working with a tight budget, or simply not in need of much space, these recently-listed homes pack plenty of potential into a compact space.
