Look Inside This Beautiful 88-Square-Foot Home
Finance| | By Lauren Boudreau
In today’s cramped, expensive world, people are coming up with more and more creative ways to take small, unusable spaces and turn them into functional living quarters.
Such is the case for architect and designer, Christi Azevedo, who has transformed a former laundry room – that’s right, a laundry room – into the San Francisco apartment of your dreams.
The 88-square-foot building is detached from the main house and features an IKEA kitchen with stainless steel countertops, and “custom upper doors of sanded acrylic,” according to Today.
In case you don’t know, 88-square-feet is basically a closet, but Azevedo saw an opportunity. She even uses it as her current “crash pad.”
She told Today, “The entire place was a wreck, but there were loads of details remaining.”
Such details include the authentic exposed brick wall that makes the place feel homey, and a space for an intimate living room that even includes a coffee table for eating. Upstairs is the bathroom with a stainless steel medicine cabinet, a dressing area with a built-in walnut wardrobe, and a queen-size bed.
So, how much does all this rent for? It’s currently listed at $1,600 a month, but considering the average rent for a one-bedroom in San Francisco is $3,500, it’s a steal.
