Tour this Cape Town cottage with minimum space but maximum style

This gorgeous Cape Town cottage renovated by custom home builder, Cape Associates, Inc. has a very compact plan at only 350 square feet. With so little space to work with, it's important to squeeze storage and style into every nook and cranny. This home accomplishes just that with a modern and chic interior that looks spacious, despite its tiny footprint.
The main floor includes the living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Upstairs is a sleeping loft. At the back of the house is an enclosed porch with a skylight to add extra living space.  Compact appliances, storage furniture, and clean modern decor make the cottage feel bright and roomy. Check out the full tour below.

Tall ceilings open to the loft above help the tiny living room feel spacious. The kitchen island acts as a barrier between the living room and kitchen and provides dining seating.
Small appliances were used throughout the kitchen like this single-drawer dishwasher and miniature sink. Open shelving adds storage and chic style.
The living room features soaring ceilings and french doors that lead to the enclosed porch out back. Modern mid century furnishings are used throughout the home.
The sleeping loft upstairs uses a short Queen bed, usually utilized in luxury RV's. Soothing gray walls and crisp white trim accentuate the architecture.
 
The enclosed porch provides needed entertaining space. The skylight and white draperies make the space feel bright and comfortable.
