I live in a suite that's about 400 sq. ft. and it's absolutely perfect for me. I just moved from a suite that was more like 900 sq. ft. and it was too much for me. I didn't use it at all. I actually have more counter space here too. I don't like to entertain other than a friend or two at a time though either and I live alone. I love my place because it's laid out so well and there's no wasted space. I occasionally miss having a bathtub but that's what parents are for
