With everything so fast-paced and hectic, many people now prefer condo living instead of acquiring an actual house. Can’t really blame them, condo living is one of the most convenient out of all living or lifestyle options. Normally, individuals who are always on the go live in condominium units instead of houses. This is because condo units are way easier to maintain, and one example is a condo in Tagaytay Highlands. You don’t really need to add a lot of furniture, only the ones you think will be essential in your everyday life.

However, how do you really make your condo unit look so prestigious despite its small space? Is it even possible? Well, the answer is yes. Just because you have a tiny space doesn’t mean you can’t spruce things up in your unit. Here are a few tips and tricks to make your condo unit look more than just a simple studio:

Use Light or Neutral Colors

It’s always best to consider sticking to lighter shades or neutral colors when getting your condo unit painted. Most of the time, light colors (like white, beige, or cream) can make an impression that particular space, home, or condominium unit is more spacious than it really is. In the same way, don’t paint your ceiling with dark colors such as black, because it will most likely appear that your ceiling is lower and your unit is smaller than how it actually is.

In spite of that, you can still add some pop of color to your condo if you want to. Make a wall or room stand out by creating an accent wall. Add a pop or touch of color like blue, red, or orange.

Don’t Hang Too Much on the Wall

Sometimes, the very reason why condo units tend to look very messy and disorganized is because of too much frames and artworks hung on the wall. Condo units are generally small, so don’t make it look a lot smaller by filling your walls with unnecessary things. As much as possible, hang only those artworks and frames that are memorable or those that really mean something to you.

The Lesser, The Better

You ever heard of Marie Kondo and how she teaches you to get rid of the things that don’t spark joy? Learn to let go of the things that don’t add value to your life anymore. Maybe it’s time to declutter and keep only the things that are essential, those that you will really be needing. For example, if you pick up a specific item, think about it, will you still use this, are you even using this still, or you’re just keeping it because you don’t want it to end up in the trash? If you really can’t throw it away, consider holding an online garage sale. A lot of apps nowadays are perfect for people who are trying to get rid of old stuff, and you could try one now!

Add Mirrors

Installing mirrors in your unit can actually make a big difference. For one, mirrors can “offer” extra light coming into your unit, and second, it changes a room’s perspective and makes it look larger than it really is. Aside from that, you can also try using glass tables instead of opaque, wood ones. As mentioned, it can create an illusion that there is a larger space, more reflection, and light.

Use Space-Saving Furniture

Multipurpose furniture can save you a lot of space in a small condo unit. For example, in your kitchen, you can opt for a magnetic rack that can hold all your spices. Also, a magnetic board where you can hang or attach most of your kitchen utensils. Aside from that, you can also save space in bedrooms. Use pull-out beds instead of twin, king, or queen-sized ones. Or, if you prefer something much more space-saving, opt for a foldable wall bed that converts into a wall during the daytime, when nobody’s using it.
