5 Ideas to Steal from a Family Home in Bulacan
Discover interesting tips inspired by a young couple's two-storey house
Many people want to purchase their own houses, but not everyone can afford to do so right away. In fact, most of us have to save up for years, just to be able to purchase our own pieces of heaven on earth.
If you are still a few thousand (or million?) pesos away from your dream home, you should begin by looking for design pegs and decorating ideas! To help get you started, here are the 5 things that you can try for the home that you live in now and the home that you may have someday:
Before she even owned her own home, the homeowner of this two-storey house in Bulacan had a vision of what her home would look like! She found design concepts and furniture pieces that she would like to have in her own space in books, magazines, and websites.

It is never too early to start collecting items that you know you would love to have in your future home! Don't be afraid to buy unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that you may never see again. You may also want to purchase something while it is on sale.
RL Tip: While we encourage you to keep an eye out for special finds, you should avoid buying things that would depend on the size of your future home! You can purchase an antique bar cart or a secretary desk, but you may want to avoid picking out a sofa or a bed frame for now.
Since the dining area is an important part of every home, you may want to set aside enough cash for the right dining set! Trust us on this one: if you have sturdy and durable dining table and chairs, you and your loved ones can use them for many years.
RL Tip: If dining sets in furniture stores are too expensive for you, you should check out garage sales and secondhand shops. Who knows? You just might find a great dining set at an affordable price!
While a hot fudge sundae may be nice on its own, the cherry on top completes the experience. In the same way, you may think that your room is perfect as it is, but it would probably look better with a pendant lamp or a crystal chandelier.
Just like this homeowner, you can consider having a swinging TV panel for your home. This allows you to watch TV shows or movies from the different areas of your personal space.
RL Tip: You can order a customized swinging TV panel at Ergo Home! Visit their showroom at 2/F North Wing, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
