Property of the Week: Cozy up your Condo

So you’ve finally sealed the deal for your own condo unit. Now how do you go about decorating it?

The whole process of getting your own condo unit, from scouting prospective developments to finally seeing your name on the lot title, is exciting. The next big task is decorating your new place, which is an equally thrilling experience. However, the latter can also be daunting.

After the unit has been turned over to you, it might be overwhelming to start decorating your space and making it more you. There’s the matter of how you’re going to fit everything you’ve acquired before you made the big move, or if the developer will even permit the structural changes you want done in your unit. So, before doing major renovation work, check first with your condo’s administration to know what can and cannot be done to the unit. You might be fantasizing about putting intricate shelving on one wall, only to realize, too late, that you’re not allowed to do any. After all, even if you do own the unit, there are still rules and regulations that you have to abide by.
