When it comes to choosing the furniture for your condo, this is one of the best parts. Choosing the right condo furniture is a great way to not only showcase your own style but also a fantastic way to accentuate your condo and leave a wow-worthy impression on your guests. But bringing your ideas to actual life isn’t always as easy as thinking them up in your head, when it comes to choosing the right size of condo furniture some consideration is needed.
Some considerations you should be thinking about when it comes to your condo furniture should include:
- Picking the correct and most appropriate size of furniture
- Creating a consistent flow and scheme
- Multipurpose furniture
Here at Moose Condo Renos, we know condos inside and out. So let us walk you through some things to consider when choosing the best furniture for your condo.
Choosing the right size of furniture
Often when people are looking and searching for furniture they can fall in love with pieces and forget about the actual space they are buying for. Another suggestion we strongly recommend is really taking some time to think about what pieces are absolutely essential, especially if you have a smaller condo. Needless to say, small condos need small condo furniture.
Some of our tips for buying the right size for a small condo are:
- Getting a 2-seater couch over sectionals or a 3-seater couch
- Utilizing multiple side tables over a large coffee table
- Nabbing a bench that can tuck under a dining room table versus having multiple chairs
Creating a consistent flow and scheme
Having a consistent flow and colour scheme in your condo can help give it the impression of being bigger, brighter and more open. Whether you choose a nice neutral color for your walls paired with bright pops of accent furniture or a monochromatic look that has tasteful statement pieces.
Our tips for creating a consistent flow and color scheme are:
- Choosing neutral colours for walls as a bright backdrop
- Selecting a singular floor style and colour for the entire space
- Introducing colour with accent or statement pieces
A good tip when it comes to small condo decor is to take advantage of multipurpose furniture. This will help you maximize your space without cluttering it with many pieces. Thankfully many small space furniture has multipurpose functions already incorporated into its design.
Some great multipurpose furniture can include:
- Ottomans or benches with storage
- Side tables with hidden storage
- Coffee tables that can transform into desks
- Floor to ceiling bookshelves
Lighting is one of the underrated features in a condo, good lighting can give your condo a bigger and brighter feel. If you renovate your condo, having a good lighting plan can help bring your space together. By capitalizing on the natural light in your apartment or adding space-saving lighting like recessed or track lighting you can give your space a bigger feel while actually saving space.
The last thing to consider is the space you have in literal terms. One consideration you can always think about is opening up your space by eliminating walls (as long as it is safe to do so). By opening up your floor plan to a more open concept floor plan, you are able to explore more options when it comes to redesigning and renovating your space. But it is always best to consult a professional before committing to any drastic changes.
In conclusion, you can always consider many options when it comes to making the most of your condo furnishings and layout. But if you still find that the standard layout isn’t satisfactory to you or you truly have your heart set on a different layout, there is always condo renovation!
