IF I HAVE TO CHOOSE ONE CONDO DEN DESIGN...

People have asked me this question a LOT over the years I’ve been designing condos. And the right answer is ...your condo design is primarily generated by your lifestyle and by your design style. What works for you may be totally different than what works for your friend- hopefully that friend is not your spouse :)...

When you shop for condo furniture, always think about the space function and most likely you will have a double duty for your den or second bedroom. If so, you know what kind of furniture to look for….and when you’re not quite sure how your Den can be furnished, choose furniture stores where you also get a great design advice…

Shopping for furniture is not just about finding one great piece of furniture but making sure what you buy will work, will last and will enhance your living space.

There are so many different functions for every single room it’s just a matter of clearly identifying your space needs. Many condo spaces come with a den that is a very small open area, from a design stand point you have 2 options: you can either integrate the den in the entire open space or separate it. Of course each option triggers 2 different looks, but what’s most important is to find out the main function for the den area.

Is entertaining at home important for you? Great friends, delicious food and amazing space design are the recipe for a great night…




Are you working from home? Make your home office inspiring…






Are you expecting guests over the weekend? No need to renovate, just buy the right pieces of furniture and turn your den into a guest room...
                                                                                
Does your den need to be a spare bedroom or a games room or maybe a dressing area? Check out these already furnished dens, all you have to do is select the one that meets your functional needs and works with your own personal design style.

What’s more important is to carefully shop for furniture because in the end it has to be the right piece of furniture for YOUR space. Shop around, compare prices, inquire about all the things that are important for you, pay attention to the quality, play around with the space planner when you have some time and go to that store that has not just all the pieces of the puzzle but also can show you how to put them all together, when you found that store you found a winner!

Happy furniture shopping!
