Make your space appear larger by keeping it minimal.

First-time condo owners might find it difficult to make the new place like home because of the limited space. This is especially true since Filipinos learn to horad unnecessary things inside the home growing up. It doesn’t have to be this way. Just because you only have a small unit doesn’t mean you cannot decorate and maximize the space to its fullest potential. If you are looking for some tips to maximize your humble space, read on to learn the basics in home decorating!

General Small Space Decorating Ideas

Low seating furniture creates an illusion of a bigger space by allowing more headroom. Make sure to complement this with a plain, vacant space. This can be a whole wall, a ceiling or a space under the bed. Lastly, installing floating shelves on the wall instead of bookshelves as a divider can save you some space while maximizing the walls.

Living room

Place creative artworks or interesting objects for showing off

Having a small living room can be difficult, but designing it in the right way can make it look larger. Smart, proper lighting can make a space glow and look wide. You can accompany it with a large rug with bold patterns to mark living spaces. Put up installations and art pieces to make the area more interesting. A trunk can be used as an ordinary table or a coffee table for a dual-purpose.

A large and clean storage for toiletries is a must inside a small space bathroom.

The bathroom is a small space most first-time condo owners forget to plan for. Towel bars and hanging planks both add interest and storage for this frequently used space. It is also recommended to focus on the detail of the floor tiles as it can be a simple statement piece itself. Large mirrors are the best solution to create an illusion of a big space.

Dining room

A four-seater round table gives an ample seating without taking up too much space.

While everyone would certainly want to make the dining room as large as possible, the small condo space limits us to do so. It’s time to avoid large family dining tables and go for a foldable one. Make sure that you have a space for your kitchen as well, or else you’ll be stuck with canned goods inside meager shelves. Wall mounted shelving units for condiments, ornaments and cooking utensils is recommended to avoid taking too much space for kitchen storage.

A corner light stand is perfect for a small spaced bedroom

A bed with drawers underneath fuses storage and space-saving in a small bedroom. A small headboard guised as a bold wallpaper behind the bed adds pattern while taking virtually no space. A corner nightstand with built in shelves can give room for a study area.
