Summer is on its way and Ottawa renovations are already in full swing.
Indeed, many new homeowners are moving into recently built condominium complexes and have very little to do in terms of renovation. However, there are also many Ottawa residents who will soon be moving into a condo that was previously inhabited, and who think their new space might be due for a little (or big) update.
Condos in the National Capital Region are often smaller than traditional bungalow homes, so maximizing the space is also another reason Ottawa renovations are in high demand during moving season!
Are you curious to find out which common renovation jobs are requested by homeowners who plan to move in a previously inhabited condo? Here are just a few:
Yes, wallpaper was all the rage in the early 90s and chances are your condo’s previous owners may have had a particular fondness for the pink variety then available on the market. Indeed, the quick removal of wallpaper is a renovation job that also requires workers to sand and repaint the condo walls … much to the new owners’ relief!
Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade
Kitchen condos are known to be compact yet still offer an excellent space to cook and entertain as well. When purchasing a condo that is more than 20 years old, many new tenants will choose to conduct one essential renovation in their kitchen: cabinet upgrades.
Luckily, the best Ottawa renovation companies are experts in helping their clients choose and install new cabinets to suit their style and budget.
Installing a Radiant-Floor Heating System
Nothing says luxury and comfort like a radiant-floor heating system for your new condo. Whether you are thinking of underfloor heating for your ceramic or ultra-trendy concrete floor, you can bet this renovation adds incredible value to your condo while instantly providing you with an incredible feature to keep your feet cozy for many winters to come.
While the above are examples of commonly requested condo upgrades, Ottawa renovations are as diverse as their respective owners! For this reason, should you choose to pursue one or more renovations in your new condo or house, it’s best to consult a renovation company with a proven track record of satisfying their clients year after year.
If you are downsizing or moving on up to a new condo, choose the renovation company you hire wisely and let the fun times begin!
