Sometimes, when you're dealing with a little space, all it takes is a small change to make a big difference. When Lauren bought her Brooklyn Heights studio, it had just one small closet in the bed nook — but there was a large home office in the living room. The bed rested on a platform with storage underneath, but the storage underneath was only accessible from a trapdoor directly underneath the bed (and who wants to move the whole bed to get to their seasonal storage?). Lauren knew she wanted to renovate her kitchen and bathroom and darken the unit's floors, so, in addition, she decided to make a storage swap that would have a huge impact on the livability of her little apartment.
