As the allure of condo living increases, discerning buyers are considering several elements in buying their ideal property; location, views, size, potential for resale and often most importantly, cost. There is, however, another set of elements that buyers should consider, the interior design features. “Unlike buying a house, if the design isn’t ideal to start and renovations are required you may run into many challenges,” says design expert Janette Ewen. “Besides the smaller space, there are condo board rules and regulations that you have to follow.” Always take the time to look at model suites and showrooms before making a purchase. Though some features may not be standard, it gives you an idea of custom finishes that are available to add some opulence to the property. Long gone are condos with drab kitchens and cheap big box furniture, they have given way to more sophisticated and stylish furniture, fixtures and appliances. King Blue Condos are a prime example of this luxury living without compromise; from the hardwood floors to the polished granite counters, to the glass tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, everything is top of the line. “Design in condos is getting increasingly decadent. Just look at King Blue Condos,” says Janette. “Decadence is seen on all level of finishes, everything from paneled walls to super chic moldings. This is also working its way into furnishings as they are taking on level of luxury normally reserved for larger ultra-expensive homes.” One of the benefits of investing in a luxury condo is that they enlist the best designers in the country to create and develop their design schemes and palettes.
