Part of the excitement of moving into a new condo is furnishing and decorating your new home. You may already have some furniture or perhaps you're starting from scratch; either way, keep the following tips in mind.
Be realistic about the amount of space you have. You don’t want your condo to feel cramped by filling it with an oversized couch, a California king bed or a 7 piece dining room suite when the square footage just isn’t there.
Before going out to shop for new furniture, measure out the space carefully. Make a scale drawing of each room including windows and doors and anything else that occupies floor space (like a column or bulkhead). Only then should you decide what pieces you need to purchase.
To keep your condo looking spacious and roomy opt for pieces better scaled to a small space. This means taking note of furniture details. For example a couch with a rolled back will take up more room when placed against a wall than one with a flat back and a chair with a busy pattern demands more visual space than one with a neutral colour scheme.
Keep multiple functions in mind when selecting furnishings for your condo. Take the humble ottoman for instance -- many not only provide storage space but they can also serve as footstools, extra seating and coffee tables.
