Space Saving Apartment by Oleg Trofimov

Russian interior designer Oleg Trofimov managed to create this smartly laid out and efficient apartment in a rather compact space. With foldaway and hidden furniture and sliding walls, the space appears much larger than it really is. The space is divided into the public living area and a more private bedroom/bathroom area. White walls with light wood accents and minimal accessories contribute to the spacious feel.

Built into the cabinetry, a dining table pulls down and also houses space for folding chairs. Clever!

In the bedroom, a desk pops out from the wall and folds back down into the wall when not in use.

Another great feature is the sliding door that gives the bedroom privacy when closed but also conceals the closet when it’s open.

On the other side of the closet is the bathroom sink. I love how the glass shower is open to the bedroom allowing the space to appear open and bright.
