5 Ideas to Steal from a Doctor's 58sqm Condo

Find out what you can learn in this two-bedroom unit in Mandaluyong


What can you do with a 58sqm condo in Mandaluyong? Architect Jaii de Guzman filled this two-bedroom unit owned by Dr. Joselito Diaz with earth colors and modern contemporary furniture. The architect picked brown, black, green shades and basic pieces that would look appealing to every member of the homeowner's family. The simple style of the second home would also still be attractive even after five, ten, or twenty years.

If you would also like to make the most of a small space, here are design ideas inspired by this 58sqm condo:

Build an entertainment wall

Instead of a console table or TV cabinet, the architect decided to create a customized entertainment wall! Since it becomes a part of the wall, this feature helps the homeowner save on space. It also makes the living area look more interesting.

RL Tip: For a cohesive look, the architect took the same material used for the the media wall to build a coffee table and side table for the living area.

Use flooring materials for the accent wall

If your living and dining area is in the same space, you can define the dining area with an accent wall! You can paint the wall, hang up framed photos and artworks, or even install reasonably priced flooring materials. Since flooring materials don't cost too much money, the architect only spent less than P5,000 on this particular surface!

Use stainless steel mosaic tiles for your backsplash

For a cool and stylish kitchen, you can install stainless steel mosaic tiles! Since these tiles come in sheets, they are surprisingly budget-friendly and easy-to-install. They can also withstand wear and tear, oil splatters, and water damage.

Order a customized bunk bed

To save on space, the architect designed a bunk bed that could be placed against the wall. It also has drawers underneath the second bed to store pillow cases, bed sheets, and even a few clothes.

Choose a bright wall color

Earth colors don't have to be bland or boring! A vibrant shade of green can brighten up your bathroom and any other small space in your home.
