Revamping a Condo's Living and Dining Area for More Storage Space
Clean lines and hardworking fixtures can help with making a space look more organized.
Storage is a problem for many homeowners, especially since no one can really predict how much stuff a person will procure after moving into a space. It's much easier to buy things now, too, since online shopping has made things simpler and more convenient.
Kristian Somera, creative director of Kin Space, shares how his team revamped the dining and living area of a working mom's condo unit in San Juan City. He tells Real Living, “Her direction was to add storage for all her possessions and make the space cozier for her and her young family.”
It was then a matter of including hard-working pieces and fixtures to make things neat and compact without having to sacrifice aesthetics.
Kristian went with banquette seating in order to maximize the space and to add an option for storage. Aside from this, shaker-style cabinetry was also installed, framing a calming gray-and-white mural to keep things interesting.
"We also gave her existing dining table a facelift and paired it with spindle back black dining chairs that really mesh well with the whole design.” A woven rug was added for additional texture.
The mural in the dining area was contrasted by throw pillows in deep green, and these tie up with the focal point of the living area, which is an emerald green velvet sofa.
For more storage, Kristian's team redid the entire media wall. “We combined wood, linen, and natural textures... to get hat nice balance between modern and contemporary while still making it look very chic.”
A center table in deep wood adds a warmer feel to the space while also offering additional storage for keepsakes. A bit of foliage was also brought in to breathe life into the living area, making it look more lived in.
