4 Ways to Maximize a Condo Unit
If you have kids and you only have a small unit, safety and proper layout should be two of your priorities
Living in a small space has its ups and downs. Perhaps the most challenging part is how to maximize the space—especially if you have kids.
To make the most of tiny spaces, you can never go wrong with a couple of space-saving tricks. You can still achieve a comfortable and efficient space with these tips and ideas.
Opt for an open layout
The little ones love to run and walk around the house. Given this, it's best to have an open layout where they can move around freely. The trick for small spaces is proper space planning. You can always use rugs, shelves, and planters to divide the space.
Choose customized pieces
Living in a studio unit allows you to maximize your space and work with what you have. To make your room less cramped, add customized furniture that can fit perfectly in the available space and multipurpose pieces that can serve more than one purpose. For your kids' room, you may opt to have a console table with drawers that can be used for storage and studying.
Always think safety first
Since the young ones love to explore, chances are they would run outside if they see the door open. Put safety first by installing a child gate. This must-have also comes in handy if you live in a loft and have a short flight of stairs at home.
You may also childproof your home by covering unused sockets and adding corner guards to the tables. For areas where they usually stay in, you may install play mats.
Give your kids their own space
Even if your space is limited, assign a corner in your room where your kids can play and read. Add a shelf where they can keep and display their books and toys. Complete the look by having colorful pillows, a play mat, and a comfy bean bag.
