Leveraging your Boca Raton condo as a rental property is one of the most profitable ventures in residential real estate.

design tricks to get the most from your small kitchen

Like our recent blog regarding expanding the limited space in your Boca condo laundry room, we know not every condo will be a sprawling 3,000-square-foot masterpiece to put many single-family homes to shame. For most, there is a small exchange of space for access, with waterfront and downtown condos in particular fetching a much higher price per square foot.

Thankfully, there are many devices, configurations, and storage solutions to remedy the problem of the seemingly shrinking condo kitchen. While there are many to choose from, we chose some of our favorite tips and tricks to place below to help you get the most out of your small Boca condo kitchen!

Choose A Cabinet Depth Refrigerator

It may not sound like much, and perhaps you won't spend much time hanging out 6 inches in front of your fridge, but this is one way to make your kitchen seem much larger without doing much.

the most effective soundproofing containers

Boca Luxury condos are largely built for comfort and class. Many fortunate condo owners will likely never deal with the noise and clamor of bad neighbors. Between the quality of individual buying in your building and the existing inbuilt soundproofing solutions, we don't expect many disturbances to your home life. However, in some cases, the murmur of your neighbor's television or the shrill bark of their Maltese may be enough to drive you crazy without offering much of a resolution. After all, choosing a pet-friendly condo means you may hear the occasional dog bark and your neighbor is permitted to enjoy their TV within reason.

5 Ways To Give Your Boca Raton Condo A Modern Vibe

5 ways to create a modern vibe in your condo

The days of tans, terracotta, and Mediterranean influence will soon be in the rearview mirror for this strongly Addison-Inspired community of beautiful luxury condos.

While in years past our condo decor relied on Renaissance art inspiration, making the most luxuriant of condos appear like a modern-Medici-era penthouse rather than a clean beachfront high-rise, today's modern vibes are cleaner, calmer, brighter, and more serene. Learn how these new trends have affected how we decorate our condos, and how you can upgrade your own to elevate the vibe to modernity.
