Small Space Solutions by Real Living Contest


Photobucket


Small space is steadily becoming an option for most city-dwellers as properties' costs continue to rise. While many may dread living in confined spaces, Real Living Magazine thinks otherwise with the launch of their new book, Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions.

Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions is a niche lifestyle boutique on print. It gives "shoebox" owners a chance to address their specific space concerns - from creating an efficient room layout to choosing stylish but flexible furniture pieces. Dare we say, Real Home Ideas 5 makes claustrophobia a thing of the past! Let us show you why after the jump.





The 29 Square-meter (Studio Unit) Wooden Wonder

Being future owners of a 30 square-meter condo unit, this is the space we instantly identified with. Having the same lay-out as that of our future home led us to earmark its two unique space-saving features. Just like that, it gave us a clear vision of our space; almost an exact image transposed to a different zip code and time frame.

Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions dabbled with space planning as it is crucial to maximizing one's space. The above photo talks about the bedroom (pictured on the opposite side of its page) which, by right placing of walls, has achieved its distinction from the other spaces but still maintaining an open plan feel for the entire unit.

It has been said many times that storage plays a vital role in a space conscious home. Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions gives us a new take on storage - by defining them as makeshift stage for your favorite things by adding strategically placed lights.

Those are just three of the best small homes Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions book has in store. In fact, those are only part of its first chapter of three chapters. While chapter one allows you to identify a home you can relate to, chapter two is a direct approach on small space tricks like ways how to maximize space depending on floor areas, nifty storage solutions readily available at SM, DIY furniture arrangements, among others. And chapter three deals with guidelines on renovating a small space. Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions is definitely a great guide towards living the big dream in a space-challenged home.

Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions by Real Living is now available in bookstores and magazine stands nationwide for P195. For more Real Living online, become a fan on Facebook and Twitter.
