When you’re cooking a lot like I do you look in your kitchen – may it be small or bigger – at the same surface for a long time. This surface is not just the countertop that I clean constantly but also the wall behind the oven and behind the sink. You might not notice it but this look has a strong impact on the way you feel in your kitchen.
You will however recognize it when one day you change the look of this back wall dramatically. And with dramatically I mean with adhesive backsplash tiles that come in so many looks that it’s almost overwhelming. We did it in our tiny kitchen and the effect was indeed sweeping.

I love houses and apartments with big windows, huge windows even. They make every room look spacious and open, light-filled and wide. Well, I know where this preference of mine comes from. I grew up in a big city where the neighbors were close, very close.
We ended up closing the window shutters or using heavy curtains in order to keep our privacy which in turn made our anyway small apartment look even smaller. So, in case you face a same or similar situation, what can you do to have both: light and privacy? There is fortunately an answer to this requirement: Window privacy films.

What is the tiniest tool box you can think of? The Swiss Army Knife! Alright, let’s talk Swiss today! Well, not the Swiss language, there are four of them anyway that are daily spoken in Switzerland. Did you know that? Swiss speak German, French, Italian and Rhaetian. Most of the Swiss speak therefore several languages fluently, like me with 5 active languages. But that’s not my present theme. Today I want to present the famous Swiss Army Knife.
The reason why everybody who lives in a tiny home would need a Swiss Army Knife is that there is always something to do, to install, to mount in a tiny place that requires tools. Several tools! Or one tool that has them all in one. The Swiss Army Knife. Honestly, it should be called Swiss Army Tool, because the knife is just one small part of the whole thing.
