I ditched my luxe flat for a tiny one-room home – everyone says it looks like a wardrobe but I don’t care, I love it | The Sun

LIVING in a tiny house is like a haven for an American woman who swapped her luxe high rise apartment for a poky one-room home in New York. 

Alaina Randazzo lives in one of Manhattan’s tiniest apartments and everyone says it looks more like a wardrobe than a home. 

The fashion worker’s home costs $650 a month and barely fits her dog through the door, but she says she loves it. 

Alaina took a filmmaker on a tour of the one-room space, which includes a tiny hob and a microwave, one shelf and just enough room for a small sofa. 

“It’s so college,” says Alaina in the internet clip. “It’s like a dorm room.” 

Alaina claims she barely ever cooks in her apartment and has to buy fresh food if she does because of the lack of space.

Explaining the reason behind her mini home, she says: “I used to live in a luxury high rise apartment but I was debating moving back to Los Angeles.

“I can travel and not have to worry about a lot of rent.” 

While some might troll Alaina for her tiny living arrangements, it’s saved her $2,600 a month. 

The video was posted on TikTok and thousands of people have shared their opinion. 

“The dog needs more space to walk and play,” said one concerned user. 

Another replied: “No way I could live here longer than 30 minutes, especially with my dog.”
