5 Ideas to Steal from Toni and Alex Gonzaga's Family Home
Discover decorating tips for your own place inspired by this newly renovated haven
A few years ago, Toni and Alex Gonzaga showed us around their family home in Taytay, Rizal. Since then, their daddy Bonoy, a former contractor, has added another extension to their house. The newly constructed wing now has more than enough space for a family room and two bedrooms for Toni and Alex.
If you appreciated the classic and traditional feel of the celebrity sisters' haven, you may want to check out the tips and tricks inspired by this place:
Although the Gonzaga family decided to retain most of the original features of the main part of the house, they completely renovated the kitchen. We especially liked the old-fashioned feel of the carved kitchen cabinet doors.
If you would like to make your own kitchen feel more elegant and sophisticated, you may want to replace your standard cabinets.
RL Tip: You may also want to simply paint (or varnish) the kitchen cabinet doors! Click here for a step-by-step painting guide.
We know that a tufted headboard may seem expensive, but it is a worthwhile investment. Think about it: if you have one nice piece, you don't really need other furniture and decor. More importantly, you will be able to use it for many, many years to come.
RL Tip: If you already have an old headboard in your home or your parents' home, you may want to have it re-upholstered. You can ask family and friends for their recommendations.
If you are still building or renovating your home, you may want to opt for open shelves and cabinets! Open storage options can motivate you to let go of clothes and belongings that you no longer use and keep the remaining items organized.
RL Tip: Don't forget the decor! Complete your bedroom or walk-in closet with a crystal chandelier and an upholstered ottoman.
For a timeless appeal, you may also want to use black and white tiles for your bathroom. To make the space more interesting, you can also install a few floral print tiles.
Sometimes, the easiest way to transform your bedroom is to simply change your curtains, bed sheets, pillows, and other soft furnishings.
RL Tip: Before you go shopping, you may want to wait for big sales and discounts! You can learn about the latest promos by liking the Facebook pages or Instagram accounts of your favorite local furniture stores.
