There are times when looking at static photos of tiny homes aren't enough for us to appreciate the clever solutions and smart features that each has. Aside from watching videos, GIFs also give us a peek into how and why these spaces work for the owners.

Whether it’s a space-saving bed or a cabinet that reveals dining rooms and home offices, one thing’s for sure—these homes are amazing. Get ready to be mesmerized and we hope you have a great day ahead:

Found in Madrid Spain and designed by PKMN Architectures, this home features modular dividers that reveal three different rooms depending on how they are positioned relative to one another. Aside from concealing the areas within, these dividers also give the owners enough space for books and other essentials. (Web Urbanist)

How can you create eight rooms in a 420-square-foot apartment? For this NYC home, designer Graham Hill worked with moving walls, dual-purpose and transforming furniture, and tons of efficient solutions that maximize every inch of space. (BuzzBuzzHome)

To maintain a streamlined space, many of us prefer concealing areas and nooks. A project by DONTDIY, this one-wall kitchen is hidden using white folding doors. When not in use, it looks like just any other blank wall that helps lessen visual clutter. (Small Spaces Addiction)

Planning to combine your living and sleeping areas? Here's the perfect peg! See how the bed magically appears when you need it! We suggest you consult with a professional should you want to pursue this project. (via Pinterest)

Sharing a room with a friend or sibling? Don't let the limited floor area stop you from having a comfortable and efficient space. Choose beds that you can easily fold and conceal when not in use so that you can utilize the unit for other functions. Consider having a small living area or home/study nook. (Huffpost Home)
