Hide CaptionShow CaptionEverything is tucked away in storage units that blend into this 430-square-foot home.
Two adults, four cats, two home-run businesses ... in 430 square feet! Few would dare to cohabit this tiny Brooklyn space, but owners Peter Sorgenfrei and Kate Roe love it. Clean lines and a modern aesthetic are achieved with hidden storage. Creative messes all disappear behind closed doors. The cats have their own space, too, on wall-mounted, carpeted shelves. It's a functional, livable, tranquil home.

White storage units hold all sorts of items from files to electronics to shoes and even a home office. Storage cabinets keep the clutter down, and these units blend into the room so the space doesn't feel crowded. The cabinets under the window provide kitty perches and more storage space. Windows are a great place to find extra storage: build out sills to sit on or for displays. House open or closed shelving underneath for more storage.
