Turnover Tips #1

Your New Home Is an Investment

With the actual unit’s price aside, your new space is an investment so shop for things that are really worth it. Invest in big pieces like your couch, dining table, and bed.

Turnover Tips #2

Get Inspiration

It can be your favorite hotel, the interiors of your favorite show, or from a celebrity’s home. Design inspo is everywhere!

Turnover Tips #3

Think UP

If your unit is limited horizontally, make the most out of it vertically. Bunk beds and tall storage options are your new best friend! turnover tips

Turnover Tips #4

Keep it classic

If you’re unsure on how you want your space to be, keep to a classic looking space. Interior designer Iriss Mangio points out you can never go wrong with these details: wood, cement, black, and white!

Turnover Tips #5

Your Condo is Not Just a Condo

You have to remember that your space is not just where you eat, sleep, and bathe, it’s a living space where you relax and commune with yourself and guests.

Turnover Tips #6

Your Home is Your Story

Your home is not a walk-in catalog of beautiful things, it’s a space where you can display things you have collected through the years. Remember that you can incorporate family heirloom pieces in your new home for a personal touch.
