How RENU Can Transform Your Condo

If you have a condo that’s in need of renovation, you might be wondering when the ideal time is to get started. The short answer: renovate before you plan to rent it out. In Toronto’s highly competitive downtown rental market, a newly renovated unit stands out and will get you, the investor, a higher monthly rental rate. Read on for the details of a project we recently completed and to see some before-and-after photos that showcase the amazing transformation.

Before: Kitchen

In this particular case, after a tenant moved out, the condition of the rental unit was no longer ideal. As you can see, the kitchen has a great, functional layout, but the finishes are dated. The cabinets are no longer in style, the appliances are past their prime, the countertops are worn, and the flooring is out of date. Yet there is a good amount of space here to work with, with lots of counter space and generous storage; it is simply in need of a refresh.

What a difference! The space is now light and bright, with the most modern and up-to-date finishes. The flat-front, white-lacquered upper cabinets have a sleek, minimalist look. The lightly veined countertop with a waterfall edge is a showstopper. The elegant gray and white backsplash incorporates the cool tones of the stainless steel appliances and updated faucet, tying everything together. The kitchen is now the proud focal point of a beautiful space.

Before: Bathroom

The bathroom was in good working order, but it’s appearance was definitely underwhelming. All of the finishes and fixtures were worn and showing their age. As is, it is not a space a renter would be excited about, so a facelift here was definitely recommended.

After: Bathroom

It’s hard to believe this is even the same space. What an impact this three-piece bath now has! The bathroom is bright and clean, with a brand-new vanity and faucet, mirror, and lighting, a new toilet, tub, floor tiling, a fresh coat of paint, new shower fixtures—and those beautiful wall tiles. The style flows seamlessly with the rest of the unit, and it’s now a space any renter would be proud to use.

Time For A Refresh

If you’re an investor with a rental unit that could use an update, consider doing the work before you rent it out again. A condo that has been recently renovated will attract attention and stand out from the pack; in return, you’ll be able to charge a higher monthly rental rate. The owner of this unit chose the full reno package and within a fairly quick renovation period of just 4 weeks, it had a completely brand new look. 

This unit was in a prime location—all it needed was a refresh to help bring it back to life. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow the Gemterra blog for more great renovation tips.
