You might think we’ve seen it all—sprawling houses, amazing transformations, and condo units that will leave one in awe. Truth be told, homeowners and designers have a way of surprising us—especially when it comes to turning tiny units into an envy-worthy home that’s beautiful and functional. Whether you’re looking into purchasing a condo unit or revamping your space, here are condo units that definitely made us fall in love:

1. A modern condo unit with neutral colors and elegant pieces


Taking inspiration from an accent wall that the client saved as peg, interior designers Honey Mutia Cervantes and Rosa Manduriao of Desaurum Co. Interior Design Studio came up with a modern look that's cozy, inviting, and perfect for a vacation home. Originally a two-bedroom unit, this one-bedroom home showcases a sophisticated vibe, calming touches of gray, and a hotel-like ambiance many will love.

2. A loft-type condo reminiscent of New York


It's safe to say that a loft-type condo is an ideal space in the city. You can use the ground floor to entertain friends, while the loft is perfect for relaxing, reading, and spending some quiet time. Since the owner dreamt of living in New York, he designed the space with the Big Apple in mind. Wooden touches complement the raw finish on the walls, while personal collections give the space a distinct, homey vibe.

3. A simple yet charming studio unit


In finalizing the look of this studio for rent in Tagaytay, the owners wanted guests to feel at home in an instant as well as encourage the occupants to look back on their fondest childhood memories. To accomplish this, they opted to complete the unit with cheerful pops of yellow and teddy bears as accents. The result is a delightful home away from home, with cute accessories that seem to encourage you to forget your worries and have a good time.

4. A simple condo renovated on a budget


This condo unit stands out for all the right reasons—a promising young designer worked on this space as part of his thesis subject, the owner of the unit is his brother, and everything was accomplished with a budget of P76,000. To transform the 20sqm space, the designer visited famous shopping spots like Dangwa and Quezon City Circle. He also incorporated his brother's existing furniture pieces into the final look to save on cash.

5. A 30sqm unit that can accommodate 10 people


How can 10 people sleep comfortably in a 30sqm space? Architect Ivy Tablante-Darilag opted for built-in furnishings and custom-made transforming furniture in completing this unit in Tagaytay. To achieve the clean and cozy aesthetic, the architect also worked with wooden touches, neutral colors, and refreshing pops of green and blue as accents. Don't underestimate this space as it maybe small, but it's functional and can let you enjoy a memorable Tagaytay trip.
