Buying a new luxury condo is an event that needs to be celebrated. From a contemporary open kitchen to a luxurious bathroom with designer fittings, your condo will feel like a paradise to live in. Plus, many luxury condos for sale are situated in an affluent downtown neighbourhood, conveniently near shopping malls and entertainment hubs. You could not ask for a better home than this condo.
Although your luxury condo will already come with beautiful furnishings, you may still be keen to redecorate some areas of your new home. Perhaps you don’t like the colour of the walls, or you simply want your condo decor to reflect your unique personality. You can work with an interior designer to transform your luxury condo into a modern paradise.
For those with a creative eye, it’s also possible to take charge of this exciting decorating project on your own. Check out these seven tips on how to decorate your condo luxuriously:
1. Look for some inspiration
If you want your condo decorations to reflect who you are, think about your tastes and preferences. Do you like dark colours, or do you prefer light shades? Do you love rustic furniture or furniture with a modern edge? Would you like to decorate your walls with artwork, family photos, or both?
You can loo at decoration magazines, or simply browse the internet for inspiration. Collect photos that you like and think about why you like them. This will help you decide on which style of decor you want to achieve in your luxury condo.
2. Consider the space you have
Is your condo spacious, or is it so small that you might have to get rid of some furniture to avoid cluttering the space? Consider the space you have, and how you want to use it. Decide on a purpose for each room or each area of your condo. Do you need a home office that could double as a guest room? Do you need a dining space, or can you eat while sitting at your kitchen island?
Thinking about the space available will guide you whether you need to purchase new furniture, or to sell and donate a few pieces. It will also help you figure out how much space you have for accessories, or for storage.
3. Make a list
Before you start decorating the walls or rearranging your furniture, take a moment to make a list of what you love and don’t like about your condo. For example, you may love the wallpaper, but don’t enjoy the look of the light fixtures. In this case, you should forget about decorating the walls and focus your efforts on changing those fixtures.
Think about what you want to achieve, and the different things you will need to complete your decoration project. You could also draw a floor plan of your space to help you find the best possible way to arrange your furniture and accessories.
4. Decorate your walls
If you have decided you want to change the colour of your walls, you can choose between paint and wallpaper. White or light colours will make a room appear larger. On the other hand, dark colours can make a room appear smaller and cozier. If you want to decorate a very small space, painting the ceiling black can give it a sense of height that makes the room look more spacious.
As for the wallpaper, it comes in so many stylish prints and finishes that it can be difficult to make a choice. You can either cover all your walls with beautiful wallpaper or use it to create an eye-popping accent wall. Whether you paint your walls, cover them with wallpaper, or keep their current style, you can decorate with wall accessories. Add character to your condo by hanging various artwork, photos, and mirrors.
5. Cover your windows with new curtains
Blinds can effectively keep the light out of your condo and protect your privacy. In contrast, curtains will always make a home feel more homely. These curtains can look discreet, or they can become an important decorative accessory.
There are many colours, patterns, and textures of curtains available. It’s important to choose a style that will complement the colour of your walls as well as the type of decor you want to achieve.
6. Arrange your furniture and accessories
The right couch, coffee table, chair, bookshelf, mirror, or lamp can easily transform the look of a luxury condo. Take some time to figure out the best way to arrange your furniture and your accessories. Keep in mind that you should avoid cluttering the space with too many decorations.
As a suggestion, you can start by choosing one focal point for each room or each area. Afterward, arrange the rest of your items in a way that will compliment this focal point.
7. Add a touch of nature
Finally, adding some plants to your condo will offer a beautiful, relaxing, and inspiring touch of nature. If you don’t want to care for houseplants or regularly get new flowers to place them in a vase, you can either get succulents or artificial plants. Plants are sure to make your home livelier, more welcoming, and bring you closer to nature.
