How to Personalize Your Davao Condo?

Need some tips on how to personalize your new condo in the city of Davao? Well, we’ve got a few tips for you:
 
Let There Be Light!
Filinvest constructs their homes with the thought of giving their residents an abundance of natural light. For those who want to maximize the space of their condos, you should take advantage of the strategic window locations and don’t block the sun’s light with dark curtains.
 
Using natural light to your advantage to brighten up your living space can give you the impression of living in a larger space. It also lets you look out the window more often and appreciate the great outdoors that surrounds your home.
 
Keep in mind that you should let as much light into your living space as possible. Purchase white or light colored curtains to further accentuate the brightness of your home.
 
Equip Your Windows with High Drapes
If there’s one thing that many individuals don’t realize, is that the art of interior design can work magic in any type of living space. Many of which can be done on your own. You don’t even have to fill your home with the best looking furniture or fixtures, it’s all about proper placement and positioning.
 
If you want to make the most out of your vertical area, we suggest that you purchase tall drapes and hang them as high as possible. Placing them way higher than the level of your window will create an effect of increased headroom and will also allow more natural light to enter your home.
  
White Walls
If the management committee of your condominium will allow you to paint your rooms, then you’re in luck with this advice of ours. Painting your walls white is the best way to manipulate your depth perception and make use of one of the interior designs' great illusions to your advantage.
