In Canada, the condo boom is affecting not just Millennials but also baby-boomers and other generations who are increasingly choosing condominiums over houses.
This means there is going to be a rise in this type of living situation, and seeing as how it’s a long term decision for most people, it’s also the perfect time to start looking into ways you can enhance your space.
Make your space feel more homely and a reflection of your interests and passions with some of the following tips and advice:
1. Invest in multi-purpose furniture
For smaller spaces, you need smarter solutions, and one of the most wonderful and effective ways to do that is by investing in multi-purpose furniture and décor. It might not seem like the classiest decision, but it will save you tons of space—and money. Think of nesting tables, shelves that double as racks, or storage stools that offer additional storage and seating spaces as a few examples. There are a lot of beautifully designed, incredibly purposeful pieces like that.
2. Buy art and décor that speak to you
Don’t just choose objects out of catalogues and magazines. A great way to make your house feel like a home is with personal touches and preferences, and you can do that with artwork and décor. You don’t need to invest in expensive pieces of art—in fact, support local artists, artisans, friends, and family and get something truly unique for your home. Put up paintings, craft furniture, sculptures, and other pieces that add value to your lives and theirs!
3. Add a pop of color to your spaces
If the rest of your home is low-key and the color schemes are muted and neutral, you can add some flair with furniture and décor too. From bright wall hangings to fun colored chairs, tables, cushions, and seating, a splash of color never hurt anyone. In fact, it’s a great way to add depth and contrast to your surroundings.
4. Get blinds and quality window treatments
A must-have for any condominium are blinds and shutters. They can elevate your home and make it look a lot more spacious, tasteful, and offer you privacy, as well as shade.
