Choosing a designer for any project is a formidable task, but choosing for a condominium project has its own unique set of challenges. It is a cross-section between the residential and commercial, something that needs to withstand heavy use but feel like home. There can be challenges in gaining buy-in from the owners, especially if the renovations will impact their day-to-day.
Lesley Wong Interiors is the right fit for your condominium or multi-residential project. Let’s consider three areas where our team’s expertise can truly benefit your community.
We have experience in a broad variety of projects, from assisting with small residential refreshes, to large hotel renovations.
Having an extensive residential background will make your design feel like home. We gain to understand how your residents will use the space and make sure that the area is functional, as well as aesthetically pleasing.
With our hospitality and commercial background, we know how to build designs to last. Our fabric, flooring and lighting choices will be with materials that can withstand increased use. We know the specific bylaws, regulations and codes that must be followed and will ensure your design will be compliant, down to the very last detail.
Price is much more of a factor in a condominium project than, for example, a national brand. No property manager or board wants to announce a fee increase, or worse, a special assessment. There are funds allocated from your reserve fund study and your costs need to fall within a pre-determined budget.
At Lesley Wong Interiors, we understand the real-life implications of overspending. As a small design firm, our overhead costs are low. We can offer exceptional designs at a fair price point that your community will appreciate.
Additionally, we design with future costs in mind. For example, we like to include bursts of colour in smaller items that can be easily replaced, ensuring that your design is on-trend and universal for years to come.
3. Knowledgeable & Professional
One challenge that many property managers face is explaining to owners and residents the necessity of a renovation project and the return on investment for the costs that will be laid out. We have the knowledge to clearly explain those benefits. As well, given our years of experience, we can foresee the challenges that pop up in any project and minimize or sidestep those challenges altogether.
Additionally, we have a high level of professionalism and will provide only excellent customer service and communication, whether to the owners, the Board or the third-parties on the project.
