It’s generally a good thing to share a room with your kids, but for the Tobias family, things weren’t exactly comfortable for their brood of three. Homeowner Kristine relates their sleeping difficulties in a space that’s barely 9sqm. “Nakalabas na ‘yong paa namin. Sanay na ‘yong paa ko na naka-hang!” She shares the small bed with Toby, her husband, and Josh, their son. Before the makeover, the room can only accommodate a full-sized bed and a compact closet.

Extending the room can help solve this problem and to make this happen, the family had help from interior designer Vera Villarosa-Orila and architect Hector Ligeralde. The dry wall that separates it from the adjacent room was taken down. Now with a bigger space, the room can finally fit a queen-size foam bed, situated against the door of the old master bedroom, which the interior designer had sealed off and turned into a wall.
