Condo Interior Design

Similar, but different; unlike apartments, condominiums often feature exclusive communal facilities or services (e.g. 24-hour security, gyms, tennis courts, swimming pools or steam rooms) in a wider variety of residential offerings. Some condominiums offer a combination of the usual apartment-style units, alongside studios, penthouses, townhouses or SOHOs. Usually, condominiums will also come with basic fixtures, such as a kitchen hob/oven, built-in dryers/washing machines and bathroom fittings.

Here’s what you need to know before you start your renovation:

  1. Different condos have different renovation guidelines: Depending on the developer, each condominium has a different set of rules and workable areas where you can renovate on. Always check with your condo’s management office before starting works.
  2. New condos in general cost less to renovate: Why so? Remember that most condos already come fitted with the basic kitchen and bathroom fixtures, sometimes flooring. That already cuts back a chunk of what you’ll need to work on.
  3. Resale condos however cost more to renovate: Nevermind the fact that resale units cost more - for condos, additional works are required to conceal cables for that sleek look, unlike apartments where you can have exposed cables or pipes.
