Big Ideas for Small Spaces
All remodeling is not created equal, and condo renovations are no exception. Remodeling a condo can be an exciting venture with lots of possibilities. But it also can present challenges or circumstances that are best handled by designers and builders who are familiar with the intricacies of this type of project. Considerations such as use of elevators during construction, space limitations, and condo rules and regulations are all common with condominium renovation projects. Incorporating universal design or accessible components that may be needed now or down the road should also be considered. Condos are oftentimes seen as small generic spaces, but the options are truly endless when it comes to designing a space that reflects your personality and style. It just requires a little planning and creativity.
Being Creative in a Smaller Space
Condos oftentimes, although not always, have smaller, simpler spaces. A creative designer will give you ideas to maximize your space and create the character you are seeking. For example, in condo bathrooms, incorporating a furniture-like vanity with lots of architectural details can provide a transitional look while a simple vanity made of stainless steel will lend itself to a more sleek, modern look. Open shelving instead of doors in a vanity can help give a more open, airy feel. Considerations like a new countertop or plumbing fixture in a kitchen or smaller appliances that take up less space can transform a room. A new paint color can make a dramatic transformation to the look of your condo. A light blue or green shade on walls can give a calming feel while a bold color can make a striking statement.
Clever storage is extremely important when planning a condo remodeling. Things like built-in bookcases can provide great storage as well as add aesthetic appeal to a space. Incorporating functional yet attractive universal design or accessible modifications is a popular component of many condo renovations.
