Condo renovations can be an amazing investment – both for personal enjoyment as well as for getting a great return in a competitive market.
However, condo renovations can be very tricky to navigate – even more so than home renovations and custom building a home! This is because we now have Strata to work with, the Building Manager and of course all of your neighbours.
The key areas we need to plan around are logistics of having access to elevators(and how many flights of stairs might we have to lug materials and equipment up!), loading docks – and how do we minimize the noise and mess for your neighbours. Ideally, we plan your condo renovation around a long vacation, or once you have organized a temporary living situation – in a home you can avoid certain areas of your home, but in a condo, not so much.
With that in mind, here are some of the best ways to improve Condo and Apartment living in Vancouver:
- Designing and Building custom built-ins that free up valuable floor space and potentially open up the floor plan
- New Kitchens can have the biggest impact as removing walls, increasing cabinet and counter space and introducing new appliances will make your place look bigger, more modern and more liveable.
- Blending indoor and outdoor space is another great way to add the feeling of a bigger floor plan, by creating a seamless transition from indoors to patio spaces
- New flooring, lighting, furniture and finishings play a much bigger role in condos and apartments and need to be carefully selected and well used to accent the big changes you have made and emphasize the new flow and energy of your RE-newed living space.
