Many homeowners and renters have to deal with small condos and cramped living space. Even a two or three-bedroom apartment can start to feel too small at a certain point. But with some smart design decisions and savvy storage solutions, you can make the most of any small space.
- Look for multi-story units.
Builders are finding more ways to expand living space and create family-style homes by designing two-story units. This gives kids their own privacy and extra space upstairs, while the downstairs can be devoted to daily family life.
- Balconies and terraces should be multifunctional.
These days, it’s not enough to have a balcony to store your bike and a few plants. Instead, condo and townhouse builders are designing large terraces with gas and water connections to increase the amount of livable outdoor space. Look for multifunctional outdoor space as part of your condo shopping list.
- Consider your storage needs.
Many townhouse and condo complexes have designated storage areas for residents. Make sure these storage units are well-lit, easily accessible, and secure. While on-site storage is a definite plus, you should also keep nearby self-storage facilities in mind as a good storage alternative.
- Look for flexibility and flow.
As you shop for a new condo or apartment, look for kitchen and living spaces that flow together seamlessly and are easy to maneuver. Rooms should have high ceilings and plenty of windows for a spacious, bright feeling. And look for rooms that you can repurpose as your family changes and grows. Can the sunroom be a bedroom one day? Can the dining room be converted to a home office? This will help your family make the most of the space for years to come.
