6 Things Every Homeowner Would Want To Have At Home
Achieve a space where you can relax, entertain, and simply enjoy the things you love
Whether you’re working on a 21sqm studio, a sprawling two-storey home, or a homey bungalow—it’s common to have a wish list of what you want to accomplish for your dream space. From a cozy balcony to a bright and spacious kitchen, we want every nook and cranny to be on point and within the theme we have in mind.
If you’re in the process of preparing for a construction or renovation project, here are six things you may want to consider for your home. These aren’t just extras to your home’s casting call, each area can help make your property a blockbuster for guests, too:
1. An inviting living area with comfortable seats
As the special place where we welcome guests and bond with family, it's only fitting to have a living area that's completed with snug seating pieces, throw pillows, and a warm ambiance. Take it a notch higher by opting for recliners! To recrate the feel of a movie house, the designer of this unit opted for a pair of sleek recliners to serve as the living area's focal point.
2. A spacious dining area
Do you love hosting get-togethers? A cozy dining area allows you to have friends over for a night of fun stories and good food. Instead of the usual chairs, consider having a bench so more people can be accommodated. If you live in a compact unit, position the table near a wall and place the chairs around it. You can also have extra stools and ottomans.
3. A bright and functional kitchen
When it comes to your cooking area, a short list of must-haves can help you get the cooking job done. Make sure you have enough counter space (have a mobile cart ready if you have limited space to work with), basic appliances, tons of storage options (cabinets and drawers must be kept organized), and task lighting, too.
4. A stylish bar
No need to build a separate bar just to be able to host a fun night with friends! If the space allows, you can have a bar complete with stools, cabinets for drinks, and fancy lights to up the ante of parties. Make this happen in a small space by investing in bar stools—place these near your kitchen counter for an instant, DIY bar.
5. A refreshing outdoor area
Whether it's balcony or a lanai, an outdoor nook can serve as an extension of the living area, dining area, or even as your own personal meditation spot. Furnish it with sturdy and comfy seating pieces, a set of pillows, and a slim table where you can display decor and accessories.
6. A hotel-like bedroom
A compact bedroom can feel like a posh hotel suite with a comfy bed, crisp sheets, and fluffy pillows. Keep it neat and organized so you can relax and forget the stress of the day. Decorate it with wall art, invest in a table lamp, and choose calming colors like neutrals and shades of blue.
Want to make the most of your sleeping space? If the space allows, consider having a window seat, too! It can be a reading corner where you can flip a few pages and admire the view.
