A granny flat is a self-contained dwelling, typically with a max floor area of 60sqm. The rules and regulations for building a granny flat vary across Australia. For more info, contact your local council.
3 Divide the living room from the kitchen with an L-shaped wall that cleverly houses the fridge and a bank of cabinets. Whiteframed windows and doors on all sides of the floor plan, up high and down low, ensure the flat is flooded with natural light. Just add streamlined roller blinds for when you require privacy.
4 There’s plenty of space to cook up a feast in a kitchen this size. Note how a well-curated collection of neutral finishes on the walls, cabinetry, benchtops, splashback and floor make this zone appear ultra spacious.
5 Add kitchen knick-knacks to make the granny flat feel like home.
6 For a mod look in the bathroom, go for tiles in pared-back tones and a glossy white vanity. Add colour with your towels.
7 A round table is a fab way to use limited space, and still allows you to comfortably host a couple of guests. As far as styling goes, hang your favourite artwork nearby to create a window into another world.
