Three small space apartment layouts under 50 square meters (540 square feet), all with glass wall bedroom designs that offer up inspiration for different design features. Our first tour is a renovation of a small apartment space, with before and after floor plans shared at the end. The glass wall bedroom fills a nook by the window, behind an almost undetectable screen. Studio apartment number two makes a feature of its glass bedroom by framing it out in black, and colour coordinating its decor with the kitchen. The neutral bedroom in home three lays quietly behind elegant glass bifold doors; it also is the only one to incorporate an ensuite bathroom setup, which is set behind its own glass wall.
The first small studio apartment is located in Arcadia. Odessa. As the sleeping area has been positioned by the window, a glass dividing wall between the bedroom and the living room means that natural light can be shared between the two areas.
The modern sofa is a slimline design that allows it to be set well back in the small room, leaving the centre of the floor feeling more open and spacious. It also leaves just enough area for a home office placement at its side.
A soft grey rug defines the lounge area from the mini home office zone. There is a huge bookcase tucked behind the sofa that also serves the workspace with reference books.
Round coffee tables occupy the deep pile living room rug. A modern fruit bowl dresses the larger of the two.
Pale blue paintwork provides a restful hue across the lounge accent wall. A modern patterned throw makes an interesting final touch on the plain grey sofa.
The lounge area looks directly into the kitchen and dining area.
Geometric kitchen tiles bring colour and pattern to the whole room. A mauve dining chair cushion matches the bed throw inside the glass wall bedroom.
At first glance this seems to be a one wall kitchen, but taller units and an integrated oven have been fit flush into the perpendicular wall.
A white hallway leads off the living room.
A concrete planter makes a modern dining table centrepiece.
Wooden doors conceal plentiful closet space at the home entryway.
Sky blue geometric tiles and purple towels colour the bathroom.
A curvaceous vessel basin and a tall mirror are offset to one side of a wood effect bathroom vanity unit.
Grey bathroom storage cabinets and a slender stack of bathroom shelving fill one entire wall.
Floor plans of the apartment, before and after the renovation.
Across the room, a light wood dining table set stands beside an unusual olive green kitchen. White wall cabinets keep the room looking bright.
A neat pendant light hangs low over the table in a matching shade. See more dining room pendant lights.
Wooden pegs protrude from the kitchen wall to make a wine storage tower.
Terrazzo tiles scatter a light pattern across the kitchen floor.
The decor inside the glass wall bedroom includes the same olive green colour as is featured in the kitchen.
Similar bedroom pendant lights hang on either side of the bed, though the shades are slightly different to take the look a little off-beat.
A floor to ceiling mirror makes the hallway look twice its length.

Our third apartment, another from Odessa in Ukraine, is a 48 square metre home.
We enter via the kitchen, where three black kitchen bar stools line up along an island.
Directly adjacent to a wall of kitchen cabinets, glass bifold doors draw back to give entry to the bedroom. The lounge stretches out in front of the bedroom, where a glass coffee table complements the clear bedroom doors.
Decor inside the glass wall bedroom is neutral so that it falls quietly into the background of the living area.
An elongated headboard spans the whole bedroom wall. The finish of the platform bed perfectly matches the flooring.
The bathroom runs off the bedroom in an ensuite arrangement.
A cylindrical pedestal sink is matched by a yellow side table. The custom cut vanity mirror covers the entire bathroom wall, all the way down to the floor tiles.
