Save or Splurge? Condo Interior Design Ideas That You Should Invest In

Share via:

Condo interiors come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and styles. Whether your space is bare or fully furnished, an interior design guide will help you pull together a completed and more sophisticated look. Your condo interior design can be everything you want it to be – minimal, bold or glamorous.

However, one of the common complaints we hear about interior design is that it is expensive. But this doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to redesign your condo unit on a budget. At the end of the day, it will always depend on how you make smart choices on where to save and where to splurge in terms of condo interior design investing.

Here are some tips on how to make smart purchases for your condo unit that will be worth the cost.


1. Remodelling your condo unit

If you are considering to lease out, flip or simply just want to add a little equity to your condo property, you might have already thought about remodelling it.

Remodelling your condo unit might cost you much so be sure to do it right. If you come to think of it, skimping on this project won’t pay off in the long run. Remember that cheap remodels show sign of wear and tear fast. Imagine refaced cabinets chip, laminated flooring warp, and stick-on tiles fall off. Once those signs appear, you’re up for another set of things to spend on. In remodelling your condo unit, it is better to splurge on quality items that would save you from the headache of doubling your spending.

VERDICT: SPLURGE

 

2. Interior décor

Décor items can easily add beauty and character to your condo space but these are the things that you should save on. Since these items do not really add function to the space other than aesthetics, they’ll be the first thing to go when you will be exploring a new look.

Keep in mind that there’s really no reason to spend a lot of your money on them. If you are working on a budget, try sourcing décor items from different stores and even from vintage shops. You can even do it yourself if you have time and if you are inclined to do it.

VERDICT: SAVE

 

3. Classic furniture

Good classic furniture can be costly, but if you choose the right set and take good care of your pieces, it is an investment that can last for years.

When you are planning to buy furniture, especially the ones that are staple in the condo like bed, chairs and dining table, look for those with neutral look and colour. Instead of buying lesser quality furniture to fit your budget, why not start saving as soon as possible so you can be able to purchase high quality furniture that you can use for a longer period of time.

VERDICT: SPLURGE

 

4. Accent colors

Color is an easy and effective way to add visual interest to any condo space. We know you want some pop of colors that match the coordinating design in your own living space but you have to be wise  in buying them. Accent colors tend to be trendy – it can be a bold shade this year and lighter shade the following year, so do not spend as much.

Keep your accent items low cost so you won’t mind buying new ones whenever you’re ready to switch the look as your mood and tastes change.

VERDICT: SAVE

 

5. Textiles

We know how fancy textiles can be – from blankets, throw pillows to rugs and beddings, it makes a huge impact when all these textiles are perfectly pulled together.

Textiles can be used for layering and styling a simple element in the room or the whole condo space. Moreover, bold colors or patterns may be added to the room even more appealing. However, colors and patterns tend to change over time so make sure to keep all your textiles affordable unless you want to invest in a neutral piece that can blend with a variety of aesthetics.

VERDICT: SAVE
