How to Make a Dallas Condo Feel More Spacious

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Uptown Dallas Condo buildings are often stylish, modern and upscale, which is why so many Dallas residents are making the move to one of these beautiful buildings. Just some of the Uptown Dallas condo buildings that we love include: the Azure, the Ritz-Carlton Dallas condos, and the Metropolitan Club condos.

Downsizing from a spacious home to a smaller condo residence, however, can often pose a few problems.

In particular, purchasing a condo residence in one of the many exciting Uptown Dallas condo buildings may require you to get creative with a smaller space. Luckily, there are a number of ways you can make your time in one of the Uptown Dallas condo buildings quite comfortable.

Here are a few ideas for making your condo feel more spacious:

  • Cut down on the clutter – Too many things inside your Uptown Dallas condo will instantly make the space feel smaller. It is therefore always a good idea to take a few days and decide which things will stay and which things no longer have a place in your condo – or your life. When cutting down on the clutter, ask yourself if you’ve used this item within the last two years. If it hasn’t seen the light of day, it is probably time to get rid of it. Before tossing your unwanted belongings, however, consider what you can donate, sell or gift to friends.
  • Think in terms of scale – Furniture that doesn’t fit the size of your rooms will likely create disconnect in terms of comfort and style. In other words, larger pieces that may have fit nicely in your single-family home may simply be too large or awkward to fit into a smaller condo space. Too many pieces of furniture in any space will make it feel tight and claustrophobic, so consider eliminating any extraneous pieces from your home.
  • Consider multi-purpose furniture – When furnishing a condo or other small space, consider purchasing furniture that has multiple purposes. A coffee table with storage, an ottoman with storage or a sofa that folds out for a guest bed are all great ideas for condo furniture.

Condo Sales are Looking up in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

The 23-story Ritz-Carlton Tower Residences are a sign of recovery for the Dallas-Fort Worth condo market. In all, about one-third of the 95 properties have been purchased. Residences here range from $700,000 to more than $3.5 million.

This is good news for a market that has been struggling to recover since the economic downturn took hold. The building staff notes that business is picking up, much to their relief.

There have been 10 sales closed at the Ritz-Carlton Residences since the beginning of the year

Bryan Street Station and how it

Monday, June 1st, 2009

If there’s one thing that the national housing market free fall of the last few years has taught us, it is that we all may be changing our vision of what makes a fine residence.

While some of the more upscale downtown Dallas condos are sitting idle on the market, or being rented out instead of sold, the condo and townhouse residences of Bryan Street Station are being quickly snatched up by eager homeowners.

In fact, the first phase of the Bryan Street Station is already sold out, and the second and third phases of the project are garnering a considerable amount of attention.

Why? Perhaps it’s the excellent location and urban, contemporary design. Or maybe it’s because they offer residents fine amenities at affordable prices. The residences of Bryan Street Station offer either European-style flats or townhomes from $143,000 to $300,000.

Although there is certainly proof that the Dallas market has cooled off considerably over the last year, new construction is certainly not a thing of the past. Builders and developers are simply switching gears and realizing that, along with the multi-million dollar condos of yesterday, there is certainly more than enough room in the condo market for affordable, yet stylish, downtown condo living.

Bryan Street is a fine example that you don’t have to sacrifice convenience and location for price. Just some of the examples of what Bryan Street Station affords its residents include:

  • Ten-foot ceilings
  • Close proximity to the Dallas Arts District, American Airlines Center and public transportation
  • One, tow and three-bedroom units
  • Hardwood floors
  • Gourmet kitchens with euro-style cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances
  • Hip, contemporary architecture and interior design
  • Large, walk-in closets
  • Secure parking garage
  • Four, different floor plans
  • Spacious interiors
  • Pre-wired for cable
