Dividing A Small Space

With the rising number of population, living in a condominium becomes the "in" thing. Most people especially those who are working in the city had put much preference living in a condo unit. However, to make living in a condo unit much affordable, most developers are now coming up with smaller units. Living in a very limited space has always been a challenge for some. Therefore, you have to capitalize on your organizing skills. Photos below show smart ways to divide a small space. Designer John Gidding was effective in making the small area to have functional rooms with style.


This small space was divided into a dining room and working area by using two storage shelves. A space was just created in the middle to serve as the entry way from living room to the working area.


This small space proved that with a creative design, the kitchen can still be separated from the dining area using open storage shelves. The place still looks open and airy and this floor to ceiling shelves can be used to store your beautiful dining wares instead of putting them in the traditional kitchen cupboards. Nice isn't it?

  1. naalala ko tuloy yung bachelor apartment ko sa Toronto, saka na din yung sa bestfriend ko. ang mahal ng rent kasi sa apartments/condos sa toronto especially if sa downtown/midtown ang location katulad nung sa'min, or pag accessible sa subway and major intersections.

    nweiz, maliit lang yung bachelor pads namin sa Toronto, pero magaling sa interior designing yung bestfriend ko and very artistic/creative, kaya kahit small space lang, nagawa namin pagkasyahin ang mga furniture namin. very useful yang mga storage shelves na yan kasi multipurpose na din as divider. kami ang ginamit namin na divider is curtains, yung sa'kin beads beads na curtains para may drama effect. yung sa apartment naman ng bestfriend ko, fabric na curtain pero pinamount nya sa ceiling yung rod. ang ganda ng effect :) bachelor na bachelor ang dating.

    ayan napakuwento tuloy ako. sobrang naka relate at na flash back ako sa post mo, kriz, censya na. hehe!

    1. Ay ganun ba? So you have experienced living in a bachelors pad na din pala. OO nga, basta creative ka naman lahat nagagawan ng paraan. Ako din before, I used o live in a small space nung single pa ako, Curtains and dividers din gamit ko to divide the small space. Depende lang din yan sa choice of furnitures mo, kailangan yung maliliit lang pero functional. Okay lang na napahaba yung comment mo. Nag enjoy nga ako sa kwento mo eh. :)
