A Small Stockholm Apartment with Lovely Natural Light

In my opinion, it is not about the number of rooms or the square footage that makes a house a perfect place to live in. there are other factors that have a huge influence on the making of a comfortable home and that’s visible in this apartment.

This Stockholm apartment only has a total floorplan of 35 square meters (376 square feet) but it doesn’t feel cramped. There are several factors that help this tiny apartment. The turn-of-the-century home has beautiful high ceilings, the two main rooms have plenty of natural light flooding in, and they added a social floor plan.  

Luckily, more original features have been preserved. Besides the high ceilings, the apartment also features the original wooden floorboards, deep window niches, and high skirting boards.

The main room in the house is the open-plan living room and kitchen. Despite the small size, the design is well thought out and it can house a comfortable seating area, a dining table, and a proper-sized kitchen.

The entire room has beautiful original high skirting boards. The walls have been painted in a classic light gray shade.

The home has generous sized corner kitchen with walnut kitchen cabinets from Lucks by Robo, who make bespoke front for IKEA cabinets. The kitchen has a countertop in beautiful limestone.

A glass table is an excellent choice for a small room as it feels less bulky.

Through the hallway, you enter the white bedroom. The all-white color scheme truly highlights the beautiful wooden floor and skirting boards.

In the summer months, the living space can be extended with the sunny balcony that overlooks the courtyard and colorful Stockholm buildings.
