When Elizabeth Blitzer purchased her 625-square-foot New York condo a year and a half ago, she set out to renovate. The most surprising challenge was finding a refrigerator and counters that would navigate her building's narrow stairwell. Living small is okay by Blitzer.
By assigning areas of the apartment for specific purposes and designing each distinctly, the space feels larger.
