If you live in a small space and own a cat, you know finding a place to put the litter box can be a challenge. This IKEA Ivar hack is the perfect place to store your cat's litter, while providing extra storage (not to mention a beautiful piece of decor.) In this episode of the Home Primp, Alexandra shows you how to hack the Ikea Ivar cabinet into a kitty litter box, and sets out to transform a cramped, uninspiring and teeny tiny open-concept condo living/dining room. She gets rid of a dining table that just wasn't fitting and re-purposes the bar into an eating area to save space, installs wall shelves to put dried goods on display and makes the living room cozy with art and wall storage.

Small home tours (playlist): http://tinyurl.com/nr6t6dy We visited this small space studio apartment in Bangkok in April. It's brand new and the architect really did a good job here, reminds us a lot of the tiny Japanese apartment spaces. Lots of optimizing ideas, hidden storage space and it even has a walk-in closet! We stayed in it for one night and got to experience it for 24 hours. The tiny balcony especially fascinated us. It is big enough to seat two people, and the grass carpet is a very nice touch because we are on the 8th floor, so it’s great to have a little (fake) green area. The kitchen is placed in the hallway just when you enter the apartment, and on the one side, you find a mirror wall, that lets the light in and gives the illusion of space. The kitchen itself has many cool details, like the elevated drying rack, a built-in washer, and a stylish magnetic cutting board. The bedroom has a glass wall on the one side, to let light into the bathroom. Even the desk in the room is made of glass (plastic), to ensure all the light get in, and to give the feeling of more space. In the living room, there’s tons of storage too. The cabins are placed high up and low by the floor, and every inch is well utilized. It has a fold-out guest bed, which will work well when you have guests staying over for the night. Enjoy.

Studio apartments are daunting — you’ve just got one, open room to sleep in, live in and eat in. How do you make it a functional small space on a budget? In this episode of The Home Primp, Chatelaine Home Editor Alexandra Gater takes a trip to Ikea for some small space furniture ideas and leaves with everything she needs without dropping a ton of cash. Watch as she hacks the $10 Ikea Frack mirror into a wall light, jazzes up the Skogsta stool with chalk paint and makes an entryway organizer out of an Bekvam spice rack.
The trick to creating a living space when your apartment is too small for a couch? Don’t forego the Queen-sized bed — instead, turn your bed into a couch with a few cushions and tons of cozy throws. And one Ikea Kallax shelf is the perfect way to divide this space and even creates a little space for an entryway.
We hope you love these small space ideas as much as we do! Questions or ideas for the Home Primp series? Comment down below or send Alexandra a message on Instagram @alexandragater.
