Pack a punch in a limited space with these amazing mini versions of your regular-sized appliances

Shares

City living has definitely become a race for space. Whether it’s finding a decent-sized high-rise studio unit with reasonably priced parking, or shopping in a tiangge that actually gives you room to breathe, people  have become increasingly aware of how space has become a top commodity these days.

With the shift towards condominiums and apartments, space in the home has certainly become a new concern. The walk-in closets and ample shelving of older, more space-privileged generations have been replaced by creative workarounds—cabinets that can fit a whole trunk full of junk into a locker-sized cubicle, lever-operated rods that slide up and down to maximize ceiling height, and clever bathroom storage that goes way beyond the typical medicine cabinet.

The issue of limited space hasn’t just affected space planning; it has spawned a whole new line of mini appliances that can fit comfortably into the nooks and crannies of today’s new homes.

Mini appliances aren’t only perfect for small-space living, they’re also ultra-light and extremely portable—great for the pack-and-go lifestyle. If you’re staying at a rental for only a few months, it’s best to invest in these easy-to-transport appliances, rather than the kind of heavy-duty equipment that can weigh down your move.
