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.
