Watermark floorplan

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.
