Maximizing Space in a Condo Living Room

Working with a Vancouver condo contractor lets you take advantage of their planning and design expertise, in addition to their experience performing the actual renovations. Designers can help you plan exciting updates while staying true to your condo’s unique architectural characteristics. Your designer will also offer a wealth of knowledge about material types, quality, and costs so you can choose the palette, finishes, and features that make sense for the space and your budget.

Add a new and even dramatic feel to your condo by:

Opening Up the Floorplan

Consider knocking down any non-load-bearing walls between the living room and adjacent rooms. Add wide entrances between the rooms to create a continuous space that offers ease of use and a contemporary appearance.


Updating the Focal Point

Every living room needs a focal point—a distinctive visual element that immediately draws the eye. Some excellent focal point updates include: 

  • Mounting a sleek, modern fireplace on one wall. The flames add warmth and strong visual interest.
  • Installing floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases or shelving on one wall. The vertical lines make the room feel taller.
  • Creating a textured accent wall with shiplap, brick, stone or wallpaper to turn the wall into a work of art.

Enhancing Lighting

Proper illumination is key to pulling together your Vancouver condo living room renovation to achieve a bright, open, and welcoming feel. Increase general lighting by installing recessed ceiling lights. Add track lights or pendulum lights over focal features. Combining ambient, task, and accent lighting prevents shadows and makes the room sparkle.

Color Schemes for Modern Condo
Living Rooms

Lean on your designer’s expertise here. A primarily white or light gray scheme with black and wood accents offers a sophisticated look. Cool tones, like pale blue or green, promote tranquility. Warmer tones, like tan or light yellow, can brighten the room. With pillows, rugs, and other decor, colourful patterns can be added and easily swapped out.

Achieving Cozy Vibes in a
Minimalist Setting

A minimalist theme for your condo living room calls for sleek, uncluttered spaces. The key is layering. Use textured linens, cozy knits, and natural materials to soften hard surfaces. Try covering a leather sofa with a chunky throw blanket and fun pillows of all sizes. 

You can also add curated objects like clay vases, woven baskets, and organic wood accents to incorporate natural elements without weighing the look down. Organize the room in a way that delivers a calm overall aesthetic. These condo living room renovation tips will help you achieve an inviting minimalist look.
