5 Ideas to Steal from a 50sqm Loft-Type Condo
Discover small space solutions inspired by this innovations manager's home
One of the greatest dilemmas that homeowners have to face is the struggle to make the most of a teeny-tiny area! Aside from fitting everything we own in a tight space, we all want to create a place that is both attractive and comfortable.
Interior designer Wilan Dayrit managed to do all that and more in this 50sqm unit! He kept all of the homeowners' belongings in hidden storage options and turned the bare one-bedroom condo into a chic and cozy place. Here five ideas that you can copy from this modern bachelor pad:
Interior designer Wilan Dayrit picked out a daybed for this living area. This is a perfect choice for a small space because it can be used as a sofa during the day and a bed for you to sleep on at night.
RL Tip: If you are still looking for a daybed, look for one with hidden shelves or drawers! You can also pick one with empty space underneath for oversized wooden boxes or woven baskets.
If you live in a studio or one-bedroom unit, choosing colorful furniture and decor may be the last thing on your mind. However, a few vibrant and playful pieces can immediately improve a small space!
RL Tip: Pick out splashes of bright red, blue, and yellow to brighten up a dull and drab area.
Ever noticed how cabinets can actually make an already small space seem smaller than it already is? If you want to store your things without leaving an eyesore, you would love concealed cabinets. Cabinets that seem to blend into the walls of your home are ideal for keeping things that you don't want to leave lying around your space.
If you are still building or renovating your home, you can choose a spiral staircase over a regular one! For many cases, a spiral staircase can take up less of precious floor space.
We always tell homeowners to choose pieces custom-made for small spaces. But, for special cases, you can always make an exception. For example, if there are only a few things in your master bedroom, you can get away with a king-size or queen-size bed!
RL Tip: Before you step out and buy a huge piece, measure all of your door frames and double check the size of your chosen area! You want to make sure that the item will fit into the entryways and inside the specific space.
