April 29, 2017

Congratulations on your new condo unit! You have now unlocked the badge of independence. You’re now living on your own terms, free from either your in-laws or your land lord. The next step is designing your condo to achieve the comfort level you need to excel in your daily tasks.

To help you get started, we’ve gathered 10 useful tips to help you maximize and improve your newly acquired space.


1. To save space, use wall-mounted swing arm lamps instead of floor lamps.

2. Use the back of the door for a hanging shelf. Just be sure that you install a door stopper to prevent it from banging the wall.

3. Mount your ironing board in unutilized walls. This way it is easily accessible but does not add clutter to your space.

4. Adding plants will not only give accent to your console table, it will also make the room look more refreshing.

5. Cover empty walls with a cork or chalk board to make it more functional. This is a quirky way of jutting down reminders, displaying photos, and expressing yourself.

7. Less is more. Excessive decors and furniture make your space look smaller. Getting rid of unnecessary items allows more mobility around the unit.

8. Let the sunshine in. Make sure you maximize natural light in your condo. Avoid window treatments, and go for sheer or translucent shades to allow more light in your unit. Also make sure you clean the windows regularly.

9. Hanging a mirror makes a huge difference. Adding reflective surfaces creates an illusion of having a bigger space.
