Appleby Gardens Condominiums – The Benefits of a Condo Lifestyle

Whether you’re making the move into home ownership for the first time or are downsizing for convenience purposes, Appleby Gardens Condominiums offer the perfect condominium lifestyle. Condos are buzzing right now and Burlington is a fantastic location that brings you close to the big city of Toronto while allowing you to live in a quieter and more serene setting. Forget the Yard Work You won’t have to bring along any type of yard tools when you live in a condo. When it snows in the winter any shoveling of the paths, the driveway and the parking lot will all be handled for you. During the warmer months you won’t have to mow the lawn, trim the hedges, add any fertilizer or clear any gutters. More time equals more freedom and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you live in a condo. Save Money When you own your own home you always have to have some extra money put away for the what-if scenarios. What if your roof starts to leak? What if the furnace breaks down? What if the basement gets flooded? You can put all these questions aside when you live in a condo because all of the major repairs are going to be handled. It’s the law that a portion of your condo fees will be into a special reserve fund that is used for major repairs and renovations. All you have to do is pay your condo fees monthly. This is a set-and-forget type of situation where you’ll be in greater control of your money because you’ll know exactly what your monthly budget will be. You won’t have to worry, since it will be built into your monthly fees. Feel Safer When You Live in a Condo Condos provide better security features so that you can go to bed at night feeling safe. It’s difficult for strangers to enter a condo building with secured entry, and more neighbours means  there is more of a neighbourhood watch over the building. The level of security is higher in this type of environment because of the security feature put in place, such as cameras and secured entry. Appleby Gardens...

Choose An Appleby Gardens Condo For Your First Home

Buying your first home can be an incredibly exciting time, but can become overwhelming. One major decision is the type of home to purchase. There are a number of options available, and determining which one is right for your lifestyle can be tricky. For many first time buyers, opting to buy a condo over a house can be the best way to go, as it offers many of the same perks as owning a house, with fewer drawbacks and financial risks.   Condos Often Have Better Value When looking at your first home, you may not be overly interested in the size of the surrounding property itself, preferring to focus on the number of rooms and size of the living space. In many cases, condos will offer you more for less, when compared to a house, in terms of the number of rooms and the size of the living space. In addition, condos often offer amenities that would be out of reach for the average first time home buyer in terms of cost. Access to special features like a pool, tennis court, and exercise room are often all included in your condo fees, helping to make your investment into your first home stretch even further.   Lower Maintenance Condo owners don’t need to worry about cutting the lawn, weeding the garden, or taking care of the exterior of the property. For many first time buyers this is an incredibly big perk of condo ownership. This frees up more of your time to focus on things that are important in your life, or just to relax after a hard day’s work, without the need to worry about landscaping or raking up the leaves in the fall. For a person with a busy life and packed schedule, condo ownership can offer the perks of owning a home without any of the time-sucking drawbacks.   Convenient Locations Condos are often located in areas that are prime locations; areas where purchasing a home could be significantly more expensive or less practical. Appleby Gardens Condominium, for example, offer easy access to shopping and culture without the need to hop in the car and drive...

Interior Design Tips to Maximize Condo Space

Living in an Appleby Gardens luxury condo has many benefits such as access to great amenities and public transportation, low maintenance level and costs, green space access, and much more. Another great aspect of condo ownership is the high level of customization you can bring to your home’s interior design. Designing your condo’s interior is a great opportunity to showcase your personality and add your own flair through your design choices. From paint colour to furniture choices, making your condo fit your style is all about how you want to present your space to your guests. Here are a few decorating tips to give you inspiration for your condo interior design:     A well-placed mirror can make a big difference in a room! When you place a mirror opposite a window, the natural light from the window is reflected throughout the room. This brightens any space and makes it feel more open and airy. The bigger the mirror, the more light that is reflected!     Incorporating metallic or shiny fixtures and décor items, like a metallic lampshade, can also help reflect and disperse light in a room, creating that natural brightness. It’s also a way to incorporate a bold piece into your décor!     Floating shelving is a great way to provide storage, without the bulkiness of a bookcase or shelving unit. Install floating shelves right onto the wall for a modern sleek storage option.     Making your curtains the same colour as the walls creates an unbroken flow to the room and makes the room feel larger.     Decorative pieces that can be used for dual purposes are excellent for condo living because it saves space. A stylish ottoman that doubles as a storage chest is an example of a double-duty piece! There are many ways to decorate your condo space, even incorporating lovely planters to add a touch of green freshness to a room. At Appleby Gardens Luxury Residences, your condo is your oasis. Our open floor plans and modern fixtures offer a wonderful canvas for you to add your own interior design flair.

Spring Cleaning Tips for Condo Owners

Spring has finally arrived, and with it comes bright sunlight and open windows. This is also an ideal time to start spring cleaning your condo. In order to take full advantage of the wonderful weather, here are some tips you can use to minimize the time you spend cleaning your condo, and maximize the enjoyment you get out of living in Appleby Gardens. Have The Right Supplies Before you start cleaning, take a look at what cleaning products and items you have, and buy what’s missing. When it comes to cleaning products, be sure you buy the most effective ones. This allows the product to do most of the work, not you, and will save you a lot of time. Work Room By Room Trying to clean your entire condo can feel overwhelming, and can actually slow you down. A better way to approach this, and to feel accomplished as you clean, is to work room by room. To refine this even further, start in one corner and work your way out. The noticeable difference will be encouraging, and can help motivate you to work faster. De-Clutter Before you start to clean, go around your home and tidy up any clutter. Most of us accumulate a lot of things throughout our lives, and experts estimate that only twenty percent of those items are actually important. Go through your home and throw out, shred, or recycle any clutter. This will go a long way to making your home look tidy even before you clean Clean Smarter, Not Harder Using cleaning supplies that are efficient and effective will help reduce the amount of scrubbing you do. Letting the products sit and soak in before wiping them off will ensure that the products are doing their job, and that you don’t need to work up a sweat while cleaning your condo. Other things, like letting the dishes soak and using self-cleaning settings where possible will also save you time, and energy. Don’t Ignore Hidden Areas Things like window coverings, exhaust fans, refrigerator coils, and the area behind the oven tend to get overlooked, even when condo owners do a big clean. Don’t...
