RL Makeovers: Storage Ideas and Multipurpose Pieces for a 30sqm Studio
Interior designer John Vigilia and apprentice Joevie Andrew Tuquib transformed a couple's first home
Homeowners Noel and Jenny Batuhan live in a studio unit with shared living and sleeping areas. Since the space is so small, the couple didn't have enough storage options. They also didn't have a dining area for enjoying meals and entertaining guests.
Interior designer John Vigilia and apprentice Joevie Andrew Tuquib worked together to create a better home for the young couple. John and Joevie started by moving the bed. After this, they replaced the old, cheap-looking cabinets with brand-new closets. They also installed wall-mounted shelves that could be used to store and display the homeowners' belongings.

If you want to improve your home, you can begin by moving your furniture around! To make this 30sqm unit more spacious, John and Joevie moved the bed. It used to lean against the window, but it is now facing the TV wall.
Since the couple had to use the living area as a dining area, the space is now furnished with an adjustable table.
The height of the table can be adjusted so it can be used as a coffee table or a dining table.
You don't have to throw away old furniture pieces! You can have them reupholstered, get a new slipcover, or simply buy interesting throw pillows.
John and Joevie complemented the homeowner's sofa with colorful throw pillows from Studio Eleven.
You can hide belongings in storage boxes! Shoe racks can also help you organize your favorite footwear.
If you would like to have even more storage space, you should install wall-mounted shelves! John and Joevie used adjustable brackets from Handyman.
