Why should you hire an interior designer to help you build, renovate, or simply improve your space? We believe that a design professional can help you make the most of your budget and create a beautiful and functional home!

For example, for this particular project in San Juan, interior designer Jane Ong turned a plain four-storey property into a cozy and comfortable place perfect for a small family.

Here are the things that we love best about Jane's work in this San Juan townhouse:

The modern touches in the traditional living area

Just like the rest of the four-storey townhouse, the living area is furnished with classic pieces. It is made interesting with a few contemporary details, including the geometric-print area rug and the steel legs of the side and coffee tables.

The shared space for the living and dining areas

We're not afraid to admit it: we're big fans of wide, open spaces! We think that an area without walls looks bright, airy, and pretty spacious.

If you have a choice, you should think about keeping your living and dining areas in the same room.

The stair landing turned into a study and play area

Jane transformed an empty and unused space into a study and play area for the homeowners' two kids. She furnished the space with an area rug, plastic table and chairs, and a customized tall shelf with a sliding door panel.

The DIY touch in the kiddie room

If you would like to spruce up your kiddie room (or any other space in your home), you may want to consider wall stickers! Wall stickers are affordable, easy-to-install, and absolutely charming.

The well-appointed style of the master bedroom

Have you ever noticed how most bedrooms are only furnished with a bed and a headboard? If you have enough space in your personal area, you may also want to have an armchair, a foot stool, or even a sofa that can be placed at the foot of the bed.

The useful his-and-hers fixtures in the master bathroom

Every couple living under one roof should really consider owning matching mirrors and sinks. Owning two mirrors and sinks instead of one will keep your bathroom organized. It will also make it easier for you and your significant other to get ready in the morning.
