Presentation Centre: 3563 Lake Shore West, 416-354-2221, Monday to Thursday noon to 7 pm, Saturday, Sunday and holidays 11 am to 6 pm.
With such great views, you’ll spend a lot of time on the balcony. Make it a little more homey with eco-friendly balcony tiles.
Take advantage of the large bedrooms to keep clutter out of the main living spaces. Look for a bed frame that lifts up to provide extra storage.
The media space could make a great small office. Make the most of it with a wall-mounted drop desk that folds up when you’re not using it.
Sharing a bathroom can be difficult. If you need more room, turn a small bar cart into a toiletries carrier that you can wheel in and out as necessary.
Don’t let a large foyer go to waste. Score some extra storage space with quirky wall shelves that can double as art.
