When some buyers look at a one bedroom condo, they tend worry about the amount of space and whether it will fit their possessions but they will absolutely love the lifestyle. These 5 ideas will make your space stand out to potential buyers….
1. Use Neutral, Light Colours
Keep the colour palette light and bright, even a simple warm white will give the illusion that the space is larger. Ensure you use the same colour throughout your condo because using contrasting colours can give the impression that some rooms are smaller even if that’s not the case. And do not ever consider painting the ceiling a darker shade than the walls, this gives the impression of the ceiling being much lower than in reality.
2. Less Is Always Best
Keep the furniture to a minimum and choose size appropriate furniture for your space. Large, bulky pieces just clutter your space making it feel smaller than it really is. Consider using a staging company, they will provide you with furniture that is the perfect size for your space.
3. The Kitchen
Remember light, bright and sparkling clean. It doesn’t have to be all white but white upper cabinets give the illusion of space. Trying pairing these with pale grey or high end wood finish bottom cabinets with modern contrasting countertops. Add some sparkle with some crystal or nickel drawer pulls.
Declutter, de-personalize and declutter again!! It’s not just about clearing surfaces, purge and organize inside all of your cupboards. Trust me, buyers look inside. If you have things crammed in they will assume you don’t have enough space, which means they won’t either.
5. Photographs & Artwork
Family photographs and drawings are personal. Clear the walls except for 1 or 2 tasteful pieces of artwork, the rest needs to go into storage. Too many pieces can take away from the space of a room, buyers like to imagine their own furnishings in the space.
