Simple tips to add more character to your otherwise boring Condo

Simple tips to add more character
to your otherwise boring Condo!
By Anastasia Chapman

TP 201912 INTERIOR 16There is something special about living in a state-of-the-art condo! Most of them are often closer to downtown and are more pocket-friendly than renting or owning a free-standing property. Plus, it has no added exterior maintenance expenses, and on top of it, it houses better indoor amenities than the average, run-of-the-mill apartment buildings.


But with condos, the main problem is they tend to be painfully insipid. Picture spotless white walls, standard fixtures, angular nooks and crannies and little to no style - that's the description of a standard condo for you! Wouldn't it be great if that bland, white cookie-cutter condo had a bit more character and style? If it felt a bit more like home?


We are sure you would love to transform that basic boxy apartment of yours into a lively space that exudes stylish charm. Here are some simple tips to add more style, character and most importantly personal touch to your otherwise boring condo, even if it鈥檚 a rental or short-term purchase.

Come Up With Creative Customised Designs For Your Condo


TP 201912 INTERIOR 03You wouldn鈥檛 find much custom design in newly-built condos. DIY your way to creating custom designs to add character to your living space. Fill in any unused or blank corners of your house with custom-built shelves or artwork that match your home and your home only. Weave a story, narrate it through your decorating style and bring an element of you into your condo. Think of creating unique art display corners, and you can even go as far as to make them unique. The whole thing with adding character to your space is giving it special touches that every other home just like yours wouldn't have.

Avoid Fixed Sets


TP 201912 INTERIOR 05If your condo doesn鈥檛 come all fully-furnished, consider it an opportunity to experiment with the d茅cor. And when it comes to buying furniture for the condo, you need to follow a basic rule. It鈥檚 easy to think that buying matching furniture sets will give your place a cohesive feel. But the problem is your condo will start to feel like a showroom and not a lived-in space with personality. The best way to add character to your condo is to mix and match different styles and brands of furniture. You can also use layers of textures throughout the interior to add that luxurious feel to your space.

Rotate Accessories and Move Furniture


TP 201912 INTERIOR 09The pain of seeing the same white-washed, bland condo is a real struggle! It鈥檚 difficult to feel such a space is a representation of you and your style, especially when you cannot change any fixed elements. One of the things you could do to change the look of your condo is altering its furniture and decor a bit. Change the cover of the couch, move the lampshade to a different corner, move the coffee table, place new candles or a new showpiece on the shelves, add or remove piles of books, add some fresh flowers, and you will instantly feel refreshed and more excited about the space.

Invest In Light Fixtures


TP 201912 INTERIOR 10Lighting is often an overlooked aspect of home d茅cor. Honestly, you can jazz up your bland and boring condo in minutes if you consider investing in some decent light fixtures. They are great additions, because they are not just beautiful or functional, but you can also take them along with you when you move properties. Scones or pendants, chandeliers or fan lights, whatever you choose, just make sure the decorative lighting match your condo decor before buying.

Make The Walls Memorable With Removable Wallpapers


TP 201912 INTERIOR 12Paint is great, but removable wallpapers are even better when it comes to adding instant charm to your dull condo d茅cor. Get the best of both worlds, amazing patterns and colours, and it can be changed at any time. Artful adhesive wallpapers are more popular among interior design enthusiasts as they add drama and interest to any room. There are amazing removable murals that can be applied and peeled off easily without any damages - even you are in a rental or short-term living arrangement.

Dress Your Windows


TP 201912 INTERIOR 14Though often short on charm and space, the average downtown condo mostly has large windows that let in natural light. You can use drapery in shades and patterns of your choice to draw attention to windows with views. From soft pastels, floral to sheer fabrics to luxurious velvet - dress up your windows with colourful treatments. And with large windows, you can always hang the draperies higher than the windows to make the room seem taller.




Add In Natural Elements


TP 201912 INTERIOR 19Living in a downtown condo will often make you miss the countryside living amidst greenery and the numerous bounties of nature. Fret not, why not design a space incorporating natural materials, textures and styles! Put together a decor by contrasting lustre and luxury with raw, organic elements to create balance. For instance - a wood plank wall, a beamed ceiling, rattan wicker chairs, brick wallpaper and a variety of indoor plants can effortlessly and instantaneously create a cosy, full-of-character living space.
