Homeowner Dina Gallian wanted to renovate the first floor of their family home in Malate, Manila. She planned to turn the old maid's room into a new kitchen and the old kitchen into their dining area. However, she wasn't able to finish her mini makeover project. As a result, the new kitchen and dining areas remained in a depressing state.

To complete what Dina started, Real Living asked interior designer Andrew Galano to step in. He built new walls using Lafarge cement, improved the electrical wiring, and brought in furniture and accessories. With his help, the kitchen and dining areas are now safe, clean, bright, and beautiful.

Here are the 4 things that we can learn from these renovated spaces:
