Maximize Space In An Urban Residence

Maximize Space In An Urban Residence

In this Home Décor segment, Lisa Canning, Interior Designer shows us a great way that condo dwellers or small urban homes can maximize space.

This particular Toronto based condo originally had separate dinning and kitchen areas.  By elongating the kitchen counter it doubles as an island for comfortable counter space and an impressive, modern, eating area.  Plush stools were added to allow this family to be able to relax at the table for long periods of time.

The effect is a sleek and efficient way to maximize space in an urban residence.
