Small Spaces: How to Maximize the Space of your Small Home

maximize space for small home

With Metro Manila’s rapidly growing population, more people have turned to the convenience of living in a smaller home. Condominiums are being built left and right and that’s because more people are investing in these small spaces. Even though they are a bit of a huge financial investment, there is a level of comfort and convenience, especially to those who are working, knowing that you are just a few steps away from a bus terminal or a mall. Plus, there is a smaller area to tidy up if you live in smaller spaces.

One con of a small place is it’s small. Which means there is only so much room for you to work around with in terms of interior designing and fixing up your furniture. But don’t worry about it is no dead end. Here are some ways you can maximize the space of your small home.

Shrink your furniture

If you’re living alone or with just a few other people, consider ditching the big furniture. Invest in smaller, yet sturdy pieces. For example, you can ditch the giant dining table and instead, opt for a small round table that can give you some extra space.

Maximize your wall space

Try to be more creative and strategic when it comes to the placement of your home decors. For example, you can opt to mount your TV set and sound system to give more space in your living room. Need an office space without sacrificing floor space? Create a wall desk. You can even mount shelves above it for more storage space.

Invest in versatile furniture

Stylish, functional, and multi-purpose. You should invest in furniture that does not only have one purpose. Get a sofa bed that you can sleep in at night, and use as a sofa for taking in guests during the daytime. This way, you can really get the most out of your furniture while saving a lot of space.

Customize your cabinets and dressers

Ready-made furniture sold in retail stores tend to have a standardized size. These sizes might not be suitable for your small place. The best thing to do is have a woodworker create cabinets and dressers that is customized and unique for your space.

Mirrors are your best friend

Lastly, and probably the oldest trick in the book, install a lot of mirrors to give you the illusion of a bigger room. Mirrors make your space feel larger, lighter, and airier.

The best part of moving into a new house is getting to decorate and design it in any way that you want! Now that you have these tips to guide you in designing and decorating your space, it’s time to enjoy your new home.

3 Factors That Makes a Community a Home

group of house

For some, it is easy to define a house as a physical location wherein people live and rest after a day’s work. It is a sense of haven for many as they live out their everyday lives with their loved ones after a tiring day. Although houses come in many different sizes, most people just see it the same way, a physical need and a factor for survival against outside threats. However, the idea of a home is much more subjective. A home is where people have shared experiences and have a relationship foundation to each other. It is not just limited to a person’s personal space or house but rather spreads throughout the community. Defining a home taps more on the emotional investment from the people. But how can an individual truly call his/her community a home? Here are a few factors which maybe you can relate to or consider if you are looking for a home

1.)   Peace & Equity

It is safe to say that all people, if not, most people don’t want to live in a community that is filled with conflict and disputes among the house owners. It is a must for every person to have a home that allows them to fulfill their right to peace and equity. If you are planning to move into a community, make sure this is in the top of your checklist.

2.)  Unity of the people

A great sense of belongingness and acceptance from the people in the community is also an important factor for a home. Neighbors who are willing to help and are working alongside each other to improve the community is one of the things that you need to prioritize for your new home. Of course, having a positive and cooperative attitude on your end is also important to truly feel the comfort of your community.

3.)  Environmental Sustainability

Lastly, a community that is not well-developed and not taken care of is not a home at all. So, make sure to help with the sustainability of your community and promote any action that will make it better. You don’t want to come home to a place that is not environment-friendly and full of wastes.

These are just some of the important factors that you may want to consider for your community. It is essential to have a home that is surrounded by peace, unity, and sustainability. Here at Imperial Homes, our mission is to develop leisure communities that promote peaceful and environment-friendly living. We want you to feel the safety and comfort that you have been looking for a home. For more info, you may visit our website at www.imperialhomescorp.com

On Choosing the Right Floor Plan for Your New Home

Floor plan

One of the best ways to have a perfect home is having a concrete plan for all the things that you will do in your own house. Upon buying a new house, it is ideal to have a floor plan as early as a month before you move in.

In this plan, you can include as to where you will put your appliances, your furniture, and additional fixtures. You can also plan ahead the room designations as well as the safety plan for your house when the need arises.

To help you further, here are nine effective ways to have the right floor plan for your new home.

1.)  Decide on the size of home that will suit the size of your family. If you are a normal sized family (3-5 members), maybe it’s best for you to have a bungalow or a studio-type apartment. If you have an extended family, maybe a single-detached home will do. Determining the size of your home is the basic component of drawing your floor plan.

2.)  Always think of the floor plan that suits your personal style. Are you a traditional or a contemporary design fan? Make sure that your preference applies to the design of your floor plan. Think outside the box. Look for the best decorations that will be very relatable to your personal choice.

3.)  Also, pick the right choice of dwelling type based on your location. There are dwelling types that are better located in the urban area while some are better for the rural area. Somehow, the location of your house can also be a vital part of creating a safety floor plan.

4.)  Know that there is no such thing as perfect floor plan, so you must be mindful of knowing your priorities and what are the things you can live without. Arranging the things that are necessary to your daily life and avoiding clutter in your house through your plan is highly recommended.

5.)  According to Freshome.com, when choosing a floor plan, always ensure that you are basing your decision on how the home flows and feels functional for your daily activities. Don’t get too overwhelmed by upgraded floors, countertops, or ceilings, imagine a “stripped down” house and start planning from there.

6.)  It is not bad to ask for some guidance, so it’s still better to consult some interior designer and a real estate agent as well. You can also consult an architect to help you out on extensively creating your floor plan.

7.)  One of the best things about being a human, trust your instincts. It is also applicable when creating a floor plan. Trust your ability to notice what’s right and what is wrong from your floor plan then work from there.

8.)  Determine if you have to buy a new appliance or furniture. Through floor plan, analyze the things that you will put in your house and think if these are already existing in your current home, if not, maybe it’s time to purchase a new one to put into your new home.

9.)  Lastly, of course, know your budget limit upon the execution of your floor plan. It is still better to save some bucks for the future so buy only the things that you need, whether it’s an appliance set or furniture, choose those which are inexpensive yet useful. Multi-functional furniture is also available in the market now, aside from saving up money, you’re also saving up some space in your house.

Creating an ideal home for you and your family is not that easy. But, with the proper planning, time management, and even budget management, you can still achieve the ideal house that you want. Just putting some more resourcefulness and creativity as well.
