Discover New Ways to Decorate Your New Condo
Buying new condos for sale doesn’t always mean that you can move in right away. Often the unit isn’t ready yet, and you may have an entire year of waiting ahead of you. But even as you wait, you can still start planning how you will decorate your new home. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
- First you need to figure out what it needs. If, for example, your new condo doesn’t offer enough storage space, you have to think about how you can maximize the available space and assess your belongings to determine which among them you’re willing to let go. The fewer possessions you have, the better.
- This is also the time to look for bargains. Visit flea markets or go online to shop for items you can use in your new home.
- Consider quick and simple ways to decorate. If you have wall to wall windows, you can minimize their rather intimidating effects by putting a couch and a table in front of them. You can also frame the windows by hanging eye-catching full-length drapes around them. This can provide a greater sense of intimacy.
- Condos also enable you to make dramatic statements. You can try putting a couple of interesting pieces of art on the walls. The door to your hall closet is also a great spot for custom-printed glass.
- Condos are inherently smaller, so you need the right furniture. Choose pieces that are multifunctional and fit well in corners.
- Many condos tend to have neutral color schemes. A monochromatic look is very soothing. But you can improve things with a touch of color here and there. Put in some colorful flowers and candles. Colorful pillows can also brighten up a room.
- Keep the non-essentials out of sight. Having too many things out in plain sight can make your unit look cluttered and messy. You can make things look more organized by tucking away the items you don’t really use often. Again, the importance of storage space cannot be overstated, especially in a condo.
- Don’t forget the bedrooms. Some people feel a bit claustrophobic when they sleep in a small room. But you can make the room seem bigger by putting mirrors behind the bed. Also make sure your ceilings are always painted white no matter what colors you choose for your walls.
