When Real Living reader Lizette Salvador bought this 36sqm duplex house, it was bare and dingy. It had raw cement floors and "there were no partitions," Lizette shared. But with a little creativity, she was able to transform this small space into a bright and airy Airbnb rental home.

DINING AREA 

Given the limited space, the homeowner opted for a kitchen island that doubles as a dining table. The light fixtures made the compact area feel more welcoming. 


KITCHEN

Lizette's kitchen is tiny but functional. It has enough room for a sink, a stove, and a fridge. The homeowner also installed wooden shelves to utilize the vertical space.

The lady of the house added pops of color to her predominantly white bedroom.

Instead of getting a regular side table, she opted for a wooden step stool, which added a quirky touch to the minimalist space:

TOILET AND BATH

Just like the rest of house, the bathroom is Pinterest-worthy. The black fixtures add a nice contrast to the sleek white walls. Meanwhile, the glass shower enclosure helped elevate the overall look of the T&B.
