Whether you bought your condo years ago and the style is no longer relevant, or you just moved into an Arizona golf community and you want to make your new space truly your own, remodeling your golf condo can be a creative and fun project that can also add value to your investment. A few key areas in your home can get you the biggest impact for your budget.
The kitchen is really the heart of the home. It’s where you cook family meals, bake holiday cookies, mix cocktails, and gather with friends. Your kitchen should be comfortable, functional and stylish. With the size of many golf condo kitchens, you can get a great package deal to remodel the entire space rather than focusing on one element like the appliances or counter tops. Then, you can select each element to coordinate with the others. Of course stainless steel appliances are considered almost standard now, along with non-porous natural stone countertops like granite and quartz. For your cabinets, consider solid wood for a traditional or transitional look, or clean white fiberboard for a clean, modern feel.
Flooring is another top consideration for your remodel. Wood floors have been growing in popularity and will likely remain on buyers’ wish lists for a while. You can choose from hardwood and engineered wood floors, depending on your budget. Hardwood looks stunning and can be durable when it’s cared for correctly. Although scratches, dents and moisture are definitely possible with hardwood, you can refinish the floor multiple times. Engineered wood floors are less durable because they can only be refinished a few times. They also add less value than hardwood.
If you love the look of hardwood but need something a little more practical for pets, kids or just daily life, wood-look tile is a great option. Porcelain and ceramic tile can also be less expensive than hardwood while easier to maintain. Depending on the color, size of tile and wood grain pattern, wood-look tile can fit into a traditional-style as well as a modern-style home.
Lighting design is an often overlooked element of a home. Changing up lighting fixtures in your golf condo can be a cost-effective upgrade that can make a huge impact. New lighting fixtures emphasize the style of your home and bring attention to its best features. Likewise, outdated lighting fixtures can be a distraction and make the style feel disjointed.
Sconces in a hallway, pendant lights above a kitchen island, or a new chandelier can all add stylish details. The bathroom is often neglected when it comes to details and finishes, but subtle yet stylish vanity lights can take a bathroom from basic and boring to thoughtful and elegant.
When you embark on your golf condo remodel, remember to check in with your HOA first for any restrictions. Also keep color palettes and styles consistent throughout your home to make the remodel seamless. Little touches can make a big difference!
