Whatever the type of property, one must work towards achieving the best design for their interior. Regardless of whether you are planning to take it up as your residence or rent it out for a good source of income, you must never compromise on any aspect of its interior design. It doesn’t matter if you have a low budget because believe us when we say that there’s always something that we can do with what money you have.
Before you start planning out how to design or renovate your condo, there are a few things you must take into consideration first. The most important being the timing.
We try to get this information out as much as possible because we know how much it would benefit not just the owner but also the developers and other professionals involved in the project. You might be wondering what it is. The important piece of knowledge we’d like to impart is the fact that
It’s much easier and cheaper to have a new condo renovated.
If you’ve had your condo for quite some time, there’s no need to worry. Of course, it can still have a new look! We just want to get this out of the way and we hope that more people learn about it. So if you have a new condo, it’s best to apply the changes you want as early as possible.
There are requirements and regulations that you need to be aware of.
Yes, there are professionals who will be with you in every step of the way. Nonetheless, it helps if you have an idea of each step of the process.
Perhaps the first thing that’s worth noting are the permits and approvals that you need to secure in order to get on with the renovation. This applies to the government as well as the management of the building. More often, you are not allowed to make any changes on its exterior. There’s also the construction bond and the number of hours the workers can work to consider. Have all these covered beforehand to avoid problems.
Don’t know what to say to your interior designer? Here are a few starting points
Sometimes, it’s hard to know what we want, much more articulate them to the professionals we’re working with. Let’s start with the basic.
Do you prefer a modern or a classic (e.g. rustic) interior design?
Modern-contemporary looks, for obvious reasons, are the most popular design. They are sleek and elegant. Who doesn’t want a condo that makes you feel like you’ve got everything under control, right? For many people, this question is a good starting point because it then narrows down your choices.
For example, if you prefer a modern design, the next step would be to decide if you want a minimalistic or you want the interior to be screaming of vibrant, futuristic colours. An industrial design is also worthy of note.
So, you see. A lot of things surface with just a single question. After this, you can move on to deciding which colour scheme you prefer. Do you want a great deal of light to brighten up your whole space or do you want it to look cosy and warm? These questions will effectively guide you in choosing the best design that will suit your lifestyle and tastes.
Small space at your condo? No problem
One of the best things about hiring a professional is how they can make a small space look vast. It’s like magic. The techniques they’ve learned in their field teach them to make the most out of each corner, piece of furniture, et cetera. In short, a good interior designer should be able to maximise the space. If this is your main goal, it is advised that you utilise only the most basic home stuff. If you don’t know where to put those kitchen wares, the interior designer may suggest using a hidden cabinet. You would be surprised at what wonders they can do to your condo.
We’ve covered a little bit of this in the starting points part above, but we’d like to emphasize on the most popular condo interior designs today.
Minimalist, elegant high-rise
Ah to be a young, budding professional in the city who’s out to prove the world what they’ve got. Your condo unit should be a perfect place to rest in after a week of hard work. But considering you’re not at home most of the time, you can prioritize your most basic needs. Of course, you can slowly build more from there.
This is not for everyone but there sure are those who can benefit from this type of design. Yes, I’m talking about those who are planning to rent out their condo units. It’s quite a rewarding investment.
If you want to relax in a cool, paradise-like home, this is for you. Often a source of envy from friends, a beach-themed condo unit is perfect if you want a carefree and light motif. It also works if you’re someone who loves the beach dearly.
This particular interior design has gained popularity over the years because of its impressionable character. The warm ambiance gives a sense of belongingness. You have to be careful though. Just a little too much, it will feel like you’re in the coffee shop just around the corner, which isn’t that bad for some people.
Chic & Cosy
This interior design will always be on the top list because of the amount of comfort it gives to the owner. The fluttering curtains, baby blue pillowcases, and cute decors will not fail to lift up spirits any day.
We hope that we were able to help you in your first steps towards renovating or design your condo unit. Remember that all you need is the right professional to guide you in every step of the process.
