Rather than migrate to the suburbs with your family, consider purchasing a luxury condo in Appleby Gardens and making it your home! Below are some of the reasons why condos are great family homes: Amenities Living in an Appleby Gardens luxury condominium with your family means you have easy access to all the amenities your family could need. In-building amenities such as a party room, you can enjoy hosting a big birthday party conveniently located steps away from your door. Also with a fitness center in the building, a workout is a short walk from your condo saving you valuable time when you are busy raising a family.

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...

Green Thumbs Up- Tips for Condo Gardening

Living in a luxury condo has a plethora of benefits, one of which being your ability to customize your space to fit your taste and lifestyle. You can choose a décor theme, and furnish your condo however your heart desires! Another way to customize your home is to add a bit of green, and get gardening. Though you may not have a typical yard space for a garden, there are many ways you can tastefully incorporate plants into your condo. Planters Plants can add a splash of colour to any room, and provide a taste of the outdoors in between trips to the nearby park. A potted plant can be placed in any living space, and range from large leafy spreads to small succulent terrariums. Depending on your preference, you can customize an indoor planter however you like, from the plant type you choose to the amount of maintenance they require. Succulents and cacti tend to be favourite indoor plants due to their low maintenance and array of beautiful colours. Window boxes Another style of indoor garden is the indoor window box, a small rectangular glass box that fits on any windowsill.

A great idea for the indoor window box is placing it in a kitchen window and planting fresh herbs in it.
