What Can You Renovate in Your Condo?

What Can You Renovate in Your Condo?
  • Opening Intro -

    Living in a condo unit means you have limited options for home upgrade primarily because of space (although there are condos that are generous with living space).

    When was the last time you made some remodeling in your condo?

    Do you have plans of selling it soon?


Whether you just bought it or plan to do some renovations, investing in some condo upgrades will help increase your home’s value. Louie Santaguida shares some ideas on what to renovate in your condo.


You might want to do a paint overhaul to try a different look. Painting is a budget-friendly way to give your condo the look of a new suite. It makes the rooms appear brighter and bigger. The right color and quality of paint can make your condo unit look cohesive from the walls to the counters to your cabinets. If there is one thing you should definitely renovate with your condo, you can never go wrong with a paint overhaul.

New Flooring

The nice thing with new floors is that it can give the illusion of a large space and contemporary look. You can somehow do away with large carpets, but some buyers really prefer nice flooring. Hardwood flooring is highly preferred, but may come with a price. It is very attractive to prospective buyers, though. Other than hardwood, your other options would be engineered wood, laminated wood, tile, vinyl plank flooring, and a lot more. You can get a design specialist to refer you to a professional flooring expert.

Lighting Fixtures

New lighting fixtures can add enhance the look of your condo, but make sure that it is the correct lighting as well. If you are renovating because you have plans of selling it, you better be sure that your unit is in the best light when showing it to potential buyers. Wrong lighting can destroy the interior design of even the most beautifully furnished condos.

New Kitchen Counters

Kitchen fixtures can make a huge impact when renovated. Overhaul your outdated kitchen by adding new counters. Granite and caesarstone usually add a nice and impressive flair, which is why these are the highly desirable and most sought-after materials for the kitchen. You can also try the butcher block counters which you can get at a fraction of the price. If unsure on what to install, consult a professional for the best design that would complement the style of your condo.

Balcony Space

The balcony is a part of the condo that is usually left unnoticed when it comes to renovating. But the thing is, there is so much you can do to improve it. You won’t realize it but it can help boost sales potential if you plan to sell your unit. Most condo owners tend to overlook the functionality of a balcony space, thus leaving it untouched during renovation works. To enhance its functional space, just allot a small budget for wood decking, seating and plants and you’re good to go.

With Louie Santaguida’s tips in hand, you are more than set to renovate your condo to give it a fresh update.
