Vancouver is a city that's constantly changing and evolving, and as new condo towers are built and old ones are renovated, the trends shift with them. If you're thinking about renovating your condo before searching out a new building, it's important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends so you can make sure your home is both stylish and functional.
As we quickly approach the end of the year, here are some of the top condo renovation trends you can expect to see in 2023.
Open Concept Kitchens
One of the biggest trends in condo living right now is open-concept kitchens. This trend first gained popularity in single-family homes, but it quickly made its way into condos as well. Open-concept kitchens make small spaces feel larger and airier, and they're perfect for entertaining. If you're planning to sell your condo in the next few years, an open-concept kitchen will help increase its value.
Another big trend we're seeing in condo renovations is the rise of luxury appliances. More and more people are investing in high-end stoves, fridges, dishwashers, and washer/dryer combos. If you've got the budget for it, upgrading your appliances is a great way to add both value and style to your home.
Smart Home Technology
As technology becomes more and more advanced, we're seeing more and more condos being outfitted with smart home features. From automated thermostats to voice-activated lights, there are all sorts of ways to make your life easier with smart home technology. If you want your condo to be ahead of the curve, consider adding some smart home features during your renovation.

Natural Stone Countertops
One of the most popular materials for countertops right now is natural stone. Granite and marble are both classic choices that will never go out of style, but we're also seeing more unique stones like quartzite and soapstone becoming popular in condo kitchens and bathrooms. Natural stone countertops add a luxurious feel to any space, and they can help increase your condo's resale value.
