How High-Rise Remodeling can Upgrade an Outdated Property

High-rise residential buildings have all the appearance of glam and glitz, especially in booming metropolis areas.

However, your high-rise building may be a bit dated, depending on when it was built.

And now more than ever, renters and potential condo owners want to know their dollars will get them the very best.

So how do you renovate a high-rise building? And is remodeling your high-rise something to consider?

Renovating and remodeling high-rise buildings can be challenging for several reasons. That said, it can update your property and make it all the more appealing to potential residents. Here are some ways you can renovate your high-rise building and where to start.

Examine public spaces

From the lobby to the outdoor area, take time to see how you can improve your resident’s life by upgrading the public spaces. This ensures that every resident, new and old, can enjoy bonus amenities and upgraded common areas.

Start with the basics

Whether it’s improving the flooring or adding in new appliances, start with improving the basics before you move to more complicated and individualized changes. And since you can make some of these improvements in bulk, you’ll get more done in less time. This will allow you to present an updated space to potential residents and fill vacancies more quickly.

Check the color scheme

While it may seem minor, changing the color scheme of an apartment can make a huge difference. Color theory shows that certain colors make people feel calm, anxious, hungry or even sleepy. If you have outdated color schemes in your high rise, take time to update it with something neutral and welcoming.

Consider the cost of layout adjustments

It’s true; updating the layout of an apartment can increase its value. However, it can also create a waterfall effect on other updates that you need to address. For example, if you want to update the layout of a bathroom, you’ll also need to adjust the plumbing completely. If you have the budget for this, it’s a worthwhile investment. However, if you’re not at a point where you can afford those changes for more than one or two units, you may want to come up with a contingency plan.

Connect with a consultant

Upgrading high-rise buildings is a smart move for any building owner and one that needs to be done from time to time to ensure the building is safe. That’s why it’s a good idea to work with a skilled consultant to discuss your options and create a realistic update based on your budget and timeframe.
