Life is what you make it, and if you live in a condo, then everyday can be like staying in a fabulous hotel. Let’s take a look at the reasons why.

The front lobby can be one of the best welcome home experiences. When you exit the underground garage, you enter the lobby which is filled with beautiful finishes, soaring high ceilings, beautiful large scale lights, the warmth of a fireplace and plush seating. You may have a water feature or beautiful art that makes you feel at ease and happy to pass through the lobby every day.

You are also welcomed by the familiar face of the concierge that watches the doors as people come and go. Not having to shovel snow or clean the front entrance is an added bonus.

Sure, your condo may be smaller than your previous home, but at least you don’t have to worry about all the extra renovations that a single home has. No need to replace the windows or roof. Instead, you can get creative with some higher end storage space or focus on upgrading your finishes. You can have custom woodwork and built-ins, exotic lighting and fabulous furnishings or maybe even go with California Closets for some sleek storage. Hardwood flooring granite tops and Stainless Steel Appliances are also popular features.

Vacations are the best times to get some inspiration and space saving ideas from hotels.

The amenities in your building can also be similar to a hotel. The games room, exercise area, weight room, entertainment and Wi-Fi enabled common areas. Ironstone for example, will have a landscaped rooftop, courtyard and privacy pods/seating areas, built-in Barbeques and an outdoor kitchen. Here are a few more Davies Smith common areas to brag about.
