7 Clever Gadgets for Small Spaces

Clever Solutions for Small Spaces. Take a look at these 7 ways to get the most out of even the most petite places.

Sky Planter


To keep your kitchen stocked with fresh herbs, plant ‘em in the sky!.

Hook-On Desk For Your Balcony


If you hardly utilize your balcony and would like to use it as a change of environment when working, eating, reading or finding inspiration, Berlin-based designer Michael Hilgers created an accessory that could give you a different view from your apartment.
Called ‘BalKonzept’, the balcony table—made from weatherproof and recyclable polyethylene—rests on your railing and provides you with an open, flat surface to eat, read or work.
Users can easily place their laptop, books, plates and cups on the table.
When not in use, it can serve as a tray, a planter, and even a ‘wine chiller’ for when the weather is cold outside. link

3-in-1 Breakfast Station


Don’t have room for a toaster and coffee maker? Let alone the time to fry an egg before work? This 3-in-1 is multi-functionality at it’s best.

Portable Indoor/Outdoor Fireplace


Fire! If you live in an apartment in a city, there’s a good chance you have a non-working fireplace or a mantle that looks random on the wall because there used to be a fireplace there. This gadget will warm up the vibe and temperature of your flat with just a flick of the switch!.

Balcony BBQ


The Balcony BBQ looks and mounts to your railing just like a standard planting box. But that’s not plants in there, it’s something much tastier- meat! It’s a real charcoal grill. Sure you could grill up vegetables on it too, but what’s the point in that? Ideal for situations where maybe you’re not allowed to keep a barbecue on your balcony so you need something a bit stealthier. Or just to keep your balcony BBQ up off the ground for easier access. You can also actually use it as a planter if your landlord busts you for grilling.link

Hardwood Floor Rug


If you’re a renter, you’re probably not looking to refinish the floor anytime soon. Fake it with a roll-up hardwood floor rug.link

Trunk Desk

Mirror Tree House


From the country that’s home to some of the ‘worlds weirdest hotels’ comes the latest in luxury tourist attractions: The Mirrorcube. Located 60 kilometres south of the Arctic circle, in Harads, Sweden, this stunning hide-out, designed by Tham & Videgard architects, is made of light-weight aluminum which is hung around the base of a single tree.
The exterior is camouflaged by mirror walls that reflect their surroundings while the interior is plywood. The windows offer 360 degree views, but to prevent birds from flying into them, an infrared film, visible only to birds, is laminated into the glass panels. The Mirrorcube can accommodate two people and includes a large bed, a small kitchenette and bath, a living room and roof terrace. It’s not cheap – $592 dollars a night, per person. If Sweden’s not your thing, you can have your own Mirrorcube delivered and constructed at your desired destination. link

Free Spirit Sphere Treehouses


These spheres were created with the concept of “oneness” in mind, so the floor, walls and ceiling create one continuous space unlike a conventional building. They utilize biomimicry and are designed to fit into a forest setting without altering it. Free Spirit Spheres use trees as their foundation, which the designers say reflects our connectedness to nature, and because they’re suspended in the air, the human footprint is drastically reduced. The shell of this unique treehouse can withstand impacts, and the web of ropes that suspend it are made of a stretchy material that allow both the sphere and the trees to move freely. via

The Yellow Treehouse Restaurant


The Yellow Treehouse Restaurant is constructed on a 40 meter high redwood tree, and is bound to take the breath away from many a young treehouse lover, as well as his parents.
The entire construction was fairly simple, but the result is stunning. The restaurant is consisted of plantation poplar planks and redwood balustrading. The restaurant is shaped like a cocoon around the tree and, since the planks are not placed closely next to each other, it is filled with natural light and fresh air. The two rounded parts are accessed via an elevated Glulam path that fits the rest of the restaurant perfectly. At night the Yellow Treehouse restaurant, as well as the path, is illuminated by warm-colored lights that give it a romantic and natural shine that in no way reduces the value of nature around. via

The HemLoft: A Secret Tree House in the Woods


HemLoft is a self-funded secret tree house built by Joel Allen on crown land (government owned) in Whistler, Canada. It hangs on a precipitous slope, in a towering stand of hemlocks, about a five minute walk from the nearest road. The story of how it came to be and the future of HemLoft is a fascinating tale.
