How do you furnish a condo?

Furnishing a condo can be a struggle, especially if you’re used to bigger living areas. With a bit of creativity, you can reap all the benefits condo living has to offer. Here are some constructive tips for each area of the home.

1. Entrance

No matter how big or small a home is, an entryway should never be neglected. It’s the first thing you see when you walk in, and it’s where you welcome your guests when they come to your home. Whether you have a hallway or there’s no room for a passage, a simple thing such as adding some artwork or mirrors will make the home more inviting and set the tone of your place. If there’s room, adding a bench where you can take off your shoes and a side table with some decorative pieces is another easy way to make the entrance more appealing.

2. Living Room

 

Allow your living area some free-flowing space. When setting up your living room, furniture that is multifunctional is key to conserving functionality and greater movability throughout the unit. A convertible sofa or chair bed is not only practical but also frees up some much-needed room.

3. Kitchen

 

As the heart of every home, the kitchen has a special place in any living arrangement. Whether your condo layout allows for a bigger kitchen, or you’re working with limited space, you can make it practical, and stylish in the process. Installing wall-to-wall cabinetry provides much-needed room for storage, and you get a seamless kitchen look in the process. Setting up a kitchen island is another great way to utilize space where you can have a quick breakfast or an extra surface to place your cooking ingredients.

4. Dining Room

 

Much like the overall design of your condo, the dining area brings forth your sense of style. Whether a luxurious setting, a classical look, or you opt for a more contemporary design, the key is to balance functionality and your personal taste. If you like eclectic pieces, perhaps a mixture of various styles is something that will best suit your condo. Make it convenient, stylish, and practical all at the same time.

5. Bedroom

 

Condo living means you’ll be spending the majority of your time in the living area and less time in the bedroom. Take the minimalistic approach and add a comfy bed. Use the remaining free space for storage purposes. Make sure not to clutter the room up, or you’ll find yourself with bruises from bumping into things.
