For some people, living in a condo can get quite boring at times. It doesn’t mean however that you have to move out and find a new home. When your condo starts to bore you, consider that your cue to spruce things up and give your condo a more modern and fresher look.
Unlike landed houses, condominiums have limited floor space. Condo interior design begins with planning the proper utilisation of available space so each part of the unit provides a specific function and promotes your desired levels of comfort and aesthetic.
Among the many ways you can maximise your condo interior design and give your space a fresh feel and look are:
Replacing the hardware and fixtures with new ones
Home fixtures and accessories are subject to wear and tear. This is especially true for the installations you use daily. Repetitive use can eventually affect the quality of home fixtures and over time, they can lose their ability to function correctly.
For instance, plumbing fixtures such as faucets, pipes, and bidets, are items you use regularly. After years of use, they can eventually develop mould and mildew. They can also leak, clog, or break.
By replacing said fixtures when needed, you’ll not only spare yourself from possible plumbing issues, you’ll also help ensure you’ll enjoy a comfortable and stress-free space for years to come.
In line with this, make sure you regularly check fixtures and accessories that might need replacement like lighting sources, wiring and cable installations, and bathroom and kitchen accessories.
Illuminating your space
Brightening up a small space will not only make it look bigger and wider, it will also make it more conducive for a specific or a wide range of activities. Welcome natural light into your home by opening up the windows and drapes. In addition, using light-coloured curtains is also recommended. It will not only allow more sunlight in but will also make it possible for you to enjoy some fresh air as well.
You can also add drama to the room by adding accent lights that highlight certain areas of the condo especially during the night. Illuminating the condo can also take away the gloomy atmosphere and make the overall space look more inviting. The ambiance brought by lighting can also lighten and lift your mood and allow you to feel more comfortable and relaxed.
Incorporating green décor
To freshen up your condo, consider having an indoor or terrace garden. You can also use indoor plants as accents to help keep the air circulation clean. Green décor can also give your condo a cosy and relaxing vibe. If you’re a nature lover, it is one of the best ways to add a little bit of nature into your home without taking up too much space.
Dedicating a tranquil corner
When planning the space utilisation for your condo, it is highly recommended that you dedicate a place that promotes tranquillity.
If you wish, you can make the particular area a place for meditation or relaxation. Now a growing trend in interior design, incorporating tranquil corners have become quite popular because they help people relax and connect with their higher selves after a long and stressful day.
Other people also use their tranquil corner as a place where they pray, do yoga or breathing exercises, as well as other practices that can help boost their overall wellbeing.
