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.

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
