Why choose a condo more than a house for investment? Condos make immense rental properties. Whether this is your very first real estate acquisition or not. Condo purchase makes a remarkable investment. Say that one day, you make a decision to get married. You can always put it up for rent if you cannot find a good deal on selling it. From time to time, people would buy and sell units time and again before the paint was even dried up or worn out on the new construction. As a result, condominium values are depressed and ripe for savvy buyers.
Styling a condo is more challenging because of the limited space. But that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to living with functional but ugly furniture. There are a lot of new designs that are suitable for condos (compact!), but are still chic and stylish. I especially love ingenious transforming furniture such as this:
The Doc sofa/bunk bed unit by Bonbon Trading is a single couch that swings easily into two separate beds. Now that’s what I call a real space saver!
Making your condo chic looking can actually be easy and cheap. All you have to do is pick the right furniture to have in your apartment. You can have a small or large space and it won’t make a difference. Shabby chic is a style that exudes class and elegance. Think rustic decorative style that is oh so French! (Refer to photo above)
This style has the vintage vibe and is normally in a light color (white, pastels) You can create this look easily if you are patient. “Make do and Mend!” If you can not afford antique furniture you can still make it look like one! First step is to choose a classic style furniture. Apply two coats* of Chalk Paint – painting with a big brush in all directions. Then wax and use sand paper to take off paint to reveal old color. Then apply another coat of paint (preferably of the same color but thicker coating now) Then sand with fine or medium sandpaper. This will now look like it’s rustic and vintage. Voila – you’ve now created Chic!
