Today’s Condo Trends

Few types of home are susceptible to trends more than high-rise condos. By their very nature, condos attract a more progressive, design-oriented, urban buyer, as the newest styles tend to evolve in the city first. Today, we offer a glimpse into what’s currently trending in the condo marketplace.

Less is More:
When it comes to floor plans & room layouts, less is more with condominium living. When making a condo purchase, buyers tend to be less concerned with square footage, but rather the functionality of the space. For example, rather than have space wasted for a corridor, use it for an additional bathroom or closet. Dividing walls can have shelving and cabinets built into them, as well as working spaces built around windows. Condo owners are very aware of spatial limitations & look for ways to make the very most of these unique areas without waste.

Double-Duty Furnishings:
The unique floor space of a condo offers opportunities for dual purpose layouts. Take, for example, the dining area – tables can be easily set-up from concealed cabinets for dining and folded back, when done, for extra room. A kitchen island can double as a breakfast bar by using stools instead of chairs, a great space saver. Stools can then be transitioned into other areas, or stacked away in closets. Some even come designed with storage spaces.
In the living room, consider using a tablecloth covered trunk as a coffee table, functioning as both a unique décor item and storage space for throw pillows and blankets. Sofas and Futons can double as beds, & built-in entertainment centres are perfect for additional shelves and surface area.

Hotel Living at Home:
Many condos, like Exhibit, eCondos, 1 Yorkville and Crystal Blu, feature luxury comforts and urban amenities that rival those of five-star hotels. With features than can include pools, fitness galleries, lounges, & private bars. Some buildings will even go that extra mile with 24/7 concierge service, to achieve that hotel experience from the comfort of your home.

Shop and Work from Home:
Many savvy millennials & young entrepreneurs are choosing condos as startup housing, allowing them to conveniently and comfortably work from home while staying connected. Also, new developments like Emerald Park, have integrated a retail component. Coffee shops, eateries & speciality boutiques on the ground floor or lobby provide an added level of convenience in your home.

Entertain (& Be Entertained) at Home:
Most condos come equipped with a shared space, but well-equipped amenity spaces are ideal for entertaining & make any event you host memorable. Our eCondos tower features a glass cantilevered pool & lounge, offering incredible 360 views of the city. 1 Yorkville boasts an outdoor theatre and firepit lounge, perfect for hosting summer get-togethers. Last, but not least, Exhibit’s rooftop oasis comes complete with a gorgeous reflecting pool & lounge. When buying a condo, look for outstanding amenity spaces that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
