5 Ideas to Steal from Doug and Chesca Kramer's Family Home

Discover the decorating tips that we loved the best in the Team Kramer house

There are many reasons why Doug and Chesca Kramer have become two of the most popular and influential celebrities in the country. For one, Doug is one of the best basketball players of his generation, while Chesca is among the most admired actresses in the local showbiz industry. They also became well-known and well-loved for sharing inspiring photos and videos of themselves and their children, Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin. 

Although they first gained attention for being so picture-perfect, we'd like to think that the fan base grew exponentially and the impressive number of endorsements came because Doug and Chesca's social media accounts truly celebrate their love for each other and for their family. 

If you also cannot get enough of Team Kramer, check out our list of things that we can learn from their three-storey home:

Choose gray curtains

Just like Doug and Chesca, you can choose gray curtains for your windows! Gray curtains look chic, polished, and refined. Plus, unlike other light-colored fabrics, you don't need to clean gray drapes that often. 

Invest in a pendant lamp

If you think that a crystal chandelier would seem out of place in your modern home, you may want to purchase a pendant lamp for your dining area. Apart from being a cool alternative, this stylish choice illuminates your dining table, allowing you to better appreciate the food in front of you.

A pendant lamp can also help you spot and remove fish bones — a must for every homeowner with children!

Display fruits and flowers

This is something we'd like to see in more Filipino homes! Fresh fruits and flowers instantly breathe life and add color to your personal space.

Having more apples, oranges, and other produce in your own haven can also promote healthy eating habits. It can remind you and your loved ones to have a guilt-free and good-for-you snack.

Paint the town — or wall — red

Brighten up your family room or any other area in your house with an unexpected pop of color! A red accent wall can serve as a focal point and fill you (and your family!) with joy and energy.

Invest in a good bed

You may want to seriously consider replacing an old, ratty, and lumpy bed soon! A high-end bed looks better and lasts longer than the cheaper options in the market. The right piece can also help you avoid neck pains, backaches, and sleeping problems. 

RL Tip: Before buying an expensive bed, you should ask friends and relatives for recommendations. A reputable furniture store would also encourage you to lie down on different beds to test for comfort and compatibility.
