Condo Space-Saving Tips
The condo market is one of the busiest sectors of residential real estate in Calgary these days. More Calgarians are choosing to live in condos in downtown Calgary and surrounding areas because of lifestyle preferences. There has been an increase of young professionals who are making the decision to give up a larger home and more space in exchange to be in the hub of the city, close to their place of work, bars, restaurants and more…
For these residents it is important to maximize space in their apartments and condos. This is especially important for kitchens which have a tendency to be smaller in condos. Below you can find a few tips to help keep your condo kitchen tidy and prevent it from looking clustered:
1. Build up: Take advantage of the space that you have above your cupboards and shelves. Use items such pot racks and storage containers placed on top of your cupboards. This will help maintain your counter space and keep things looking clean.
2. Purge: Do you really need the blender, ice cream maker and deep fryer on your counter? We all probably have something in our kitchen that is no longer of use or needed all the time. Remove bulky items that take up counter space and tuck them away in your cupboard.
3. Utilizing Wall Space: Since you don’t have an excess of space it is important to fully utilize the walls surrounding your kitchen. Placing shelves and hooks will keep clutter such as dish towels away from hanging off your stove, counters etc. Your wall space can also be used to hang large mirrors which can create the illusion of making your kitchen look larger than it actually is.
Following these simple steps will allow you to enjoy your condo, even if it’s undersized, to its full potential .
