If you live in an apartment or a condo, you have limited permits of house remodeling. It means that you cannot realize just any renovation ideas you have in mind. Even if you reside in a prestigious area, you still need to be a smart renter who knows the essentials of condo/apartment-friendly improvements.
Below, we will discuss three of them!
1. The Living Room Upgrades
You must pick the furniture smartly because you do not want your home to look cramped. And usually, the pieces in the living are the ones that take too much space. Therefore, you should consider replacing them with multi-purpose furniture.
For example, a sofa with a built-in bookshelf in the living room will not only allow you to save space but also add decorative aesthetics to the whole room. If you live in a studio-size apartment, a murphy bed design will be your smartest option for most of it can be turned into a sofa or a bed. Some models even have three functions: sofa, bed, and wardrobe.
2. The Kitchen Upgrades
The kitchen in your condo is the most important room there because that is the place where you cook for either yourself or your guest. Even if you often serve only beverages to your visitors, making your kitchen presentable is still a necessity.
First, you must start with the appliances. Eco-friendly technologies are the trend these days. Therefore, you can go for appliances that have the green symbol on them. They might be slightly pricier than the conventional models, but they’ll definitely save your monthly bills.
Second, pay attention to the lighting in the kitchen. If there are still dim corners, then you need to put more light there. You can visit Pinterest and browse around for lighting ideas for apartments/condos to get some inspiration. And one more thing, it is better to install LED lights because they can disperse the light more evenly than the other models.
3. The Bedroom Upgrades
You may live in a high-end condo/apartment, but the architects may not fulfill your personal preference. And it is not uncommon to find a condo dweller who is disappointed with the wallpaper patterns in their bedroom. Not only they can be an eyesore, but they can also ruin your sleep because they can be too distracting. Therefore, you should start remodeling your bedroom with the wallpaper. You should choose a mild color/pattern so that it can bring a warming nuance to the room.
Second, if you like to hear music during sleep, you can install wireless speakers in your bedroom. Music has been known to reduce the severity of sleep deprivation. Why don’t you enjoy some Chopin or Debussy while you’re dreaming?
