Lots of people keep hamsters in tanks especially dwarf varieties as they can squeeze through the smallest of gaps.
I have my roborovski in the zoozone 2 with the lid meshed. Very good cage and would recommend it. It's 100x50cm.
I've heard people use the Kerry and Marrakesh as well as the living world one.
Your cage isn't that much below the minimum and unless you are going to upgrade to something much larger like 100cm long, I wouldn't bother as you wouldn't be adding that much floor space.
Can we see a photo of your setup?
- why have you got so many bowls?
- what size is the wheel?
-you're using paper bedding
- habitat is clean
- loving the shelf and the wooden house
Things I'd change/add:
- remove the log thing, cheese and bridge. You are right. They're made with sawdust and not healthy as it's not digestible. Replace with cardboard box and/or tubes.
- add a lot more bedding. Hamsters burrow, they love it! I'm the wild burrows can be something like 3 feet deep and include a nest area, a toilet and stash. I'd fill the tank full of bedding up until almost the shelf where food is. Turn the wheel stand upside down and cable tie it to the bars above.
-one more thing to add. A jar with some sand. Great for cleaning the hamster and enrichment. Pets at home do desert sand in the reptile section which is perfect
I'll add a photo of Nikos enclosure for inspiration for you
