03 Jul 5 Tips for Decorating Your New Condo
After a condo renovation it may be hard to decide how to decorate and style your new home. For many new homeowners, picking decor can feel stressful and overwhelming. If you are struggling with decorating your condo read below for some tips!
Decide your budget
Your budget is the most important factor to consider when buying decorations. Therefore, take the time to decide how much you can afford to spend on decor. In addition, depending on how big or small your budeget is, you can decide whether or not you want to hire an interior designer or plan on designing yourself. Whatever option you choose, allow yourself to be creative. Try to decorate your condo with elements that express your personal aesthetic, while providing functionality.
Choose your style
Once you have decided on your budget, you need to start thinking about the style you want for your condo. Your style will help you pick the right furniture, decor and paint colour. Some of the most popular decoration styles for condos include Scandinavian design, farmhouse style, or Victorian style. Keep an open mind while also trying to pick a style that makes you feel comfortable.
Select the right colors for walls and other objects in the condo
The colors of the walls and objects in the condo will affect its overall appearance and feel. So, when picking decorations, be mindful of the colour palette you are trying to follow.
Ask yourself, “Do you want to use similar colors or shades for the walls, furniture, curtains, carpets, beddings, and other items? Do you prefer contrasting colors for them?” There’s no right or wrong answer! Choose whatever suits your personality and lifestyle.
Choose a focal point
Choosing a focal point can also help you when decorating your new condo. This focal point allows a specific section of your condo to be the center of attention. For some people, the focal point may be a fireplace whereas others may make it a patterned wall. Even your mirror can be used as a focal point of your condo.
Add more items over time
Getting a new condo can be financially draining and tiring. Instead of trying to decorate your condo all at once, consider decorating a step-by-step process. Finding all your decor at once is not realistic. Therefore, you should continue to add more items to your condo over time. You’d be surprised at how beautiful and practical your condo will be in the long run.
Decorating your condo doesn’t have to be hard. Follow the tips mentioned above to help guide you through the decoration process. If you need help, consider hiring an interior designer to assist you!
