5 Things to Consider when Furnishing your Condo

by | Feature, Property

The next step after purchasing your first condo is getting furniture for your living space. While many Filipinos think that they’ll just transfer their old household items to the new home, they usually forget that not all of their huge household items for the limited space available at the condo. Marilyn Wilson who has been in the condo business for 28 years shares a few tips for furnishing your future condo.

The space issue
Condo developers deliver spaces that may be completely different than you visualized based on mock-ups in the sales centre. Sometimes, entry doors are sized a bit narrower or shower doors are smaller than you anticipated. If you are very tall or large, consider ensuring door frames will provide easy access for you. Don’t just look at ceiling height in a model suite and assume your door frames will be high.


Create cohesive spaces
When decorating, many people arrange couches around focal point fireplaces, but if you subscribe to this decorating philosophy, be sure not to chop up the room. Condos often have open concept living/dining rooms and to create separate spaces, you might want to place a narrow table behind the couch to create interest and create a division that looks planned, rather than forced.

The Look
Today’s furniture designs offer various looks, but whether you decide on traditional or modern is up to you. Many people think that because condo designs are so modern, their interiors must be similarly contemporary; they do not. Traditional furniture can be just as interesting, but try to stay away from the I-bought-this-off-the-showroom-floor look.

Rethink collections
If you have collections — of art, teacups, books, hats, or anything else — consider curating your displays like a museum would. Instead of cramming walls, tables and display shelves full of beautiful artifacts, arrange things into your “permanent collection” and your “temporary exhibitions.” This way of thinking will keep your space clean and organized and prevent it from becoming overwhelmed by things.

Your artwork
Given that many condos have glass curtain walls, wall space in your new condo may be at a premium.

If you have an art collection, keep in mind both the amount of available wall space and the amount of light that will shine on these walls, as constant exposure to sunlight might affect your art.
