Be inspired to spruce up your own tiny space


Aside from spending time in the bedroom, where else do you pass the time when you're at home? There are some who prefer the calming outdoors while there are homeowners who prefer to spend quality time with the family in the living area or dining room.

If you're living in a condo, chances are, your options are limited to: the common pool area or your small living space. For those who have a balcony, they choose to liven up the space according to their needs to create an instant nook. We've got a couple of pegs that you may want to consider so you may also enjoy your balcony to the fullest.

Reading nook

Bookworms, rejoice! If your bedroom is bursting with books, you may want to install shelves in the balcony where you can put some of your favorite reads on display. Complete the space by adding a comfy chair, lighting, and potted plants to add a refreshing touch.

Word of caution: If the weather is bad, make sure you bring the books inside to avoid any damages.
