We all want to love where we live, but we also want to stick to a reasonable budget. To make the most of your space, select a couple of areas you’d like to invest a little more in. Often these are high traffic areas your guests will see, but sometimes they’re smaller, more private areas intended only for you. Read on for some of the best condo upgrades you can invest in.
High-End Kitchen Appliances
Great appliances can make any kitchen look like a million bucks. If you really enjoy cooking or baking, even if you just want the look of a chef’s kitchen, you can’t go wrong buying top quality kitchen appliances. Stainless steel is most in demand and fits in seamlessly with any style of cabinets or countertops. High quality kitchen appliances are one of the best condo upgrades because they add value, instantly update your space, and will always appeal to buyers.
A clean, modern countertop instantly freshens up any kitchen, making it an inviting space to use. An elegant kitchen counter is one of our favourite condo upgrades and quartz, pictured above, helps create an expensive, timeless look. We also recommend trying to keep your kitchen countertops as clutter-free as possible. Clear counters really add to the feeling of calm, order, and luxury in a space.
Take the opportunity to personalize your space using statement lighting. This will add a unique element to your home and help set it apart. Lighting can change the whole mood, making a room feel more modern and contemporary, or even more retro. Enjoy exploring the options and discover what you’re drawn to. This particular condo upgrade doesn’t have to cost a lot, as great buys can be found at every price point. Invest in one standout piece, or two complementary pieces as above, that really speak to you.
One of the greatest luxuries in life is often a hidden gem; it’s something others may not ever know you have. A fitted closet makes the most of every inch available so you can fit much more into it than you would have ever thought possible. The best perk, however, is how great and clean-looking they are. They hide clutter and hold room for everything in your collection. For those who like order, this is the one of the best condo upgrades out there.
Hotel-Style Bathroom Fixtures
Even if you have just one, make your bathroom the most comfortable possible. It doesn’t take much to upgrade this space, a few small touches here and there are enough to transform it. Think of one of your favourite hotel bathrooms and the details you loved. Chances are the mirror, countertop and hardware were clean and sparkly, the room smelled fresh and clean, and there were thick, fluffy towels for you to use. Surfaces were clear and any products needed were close at hand. Beautiful lighting completes the space.
We hope we’ve inspired you to invest in a few simple condo upgrades of your own. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow the Gemterra blog for more great home decor tips.
