Even though it only offers about 432 sq. ft. of space, this $319,000 studio apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side maximizes style with a few simple tricks. Taking a page from our own guide to making tiny apartments look larger, the home's previous owners (or some very good stagers) set it up with bright pops of color on a light background, minimal clutter and furnishings, and a mirrored wall that bounces lots of natural light back into the space.

The 8’7″ beamed ceilings inside this studio give the apartment an open feel and the windows offer city views and ample sunlight. With 24 hour security, a fully equipped gym, on-site laundry and access to two private green areas, this tiny home comes with amenities any New Yorker would covet.
Another feature that lets in plenty of light and ventilation is that both the eat-in kitchen and the bathroom have windows. The closet/dressing area multiplies the daylight let in with a mirrored wall that makes the space feel a tad bit larger.
And since the beauty of a city apartment is that you don’t spend much time there anyway, this small studio also boasts close access to the F, J, M and Z trains. The apartment is also walking distance (one block to be exact) to the East River Park, ball fields and tennis courts.
