Portland Condo Design and Remodel Consultants

Refresh Renovations Condo Design and Remodel Consultants

Living in a condo is a common trend these days as it comes with lots of upsides, including closer proximity to work and school, as well as needing little maintenance or upkeep. However, you may be feeling limited by the predetermined layout that is identical in every way to all the other condos in your building. Refresh Renovations Portland can help you create a unique space and take care of every aspect of your condo remodel!

Our bespoke design and build process will not only ensure you achieve a result that suits your tastes and matches your condo’s existing aesthetic, but also do so on time and on budget.

What are some popular current trends in Portland for remodeling a condo?

When it comes to renovating a condominium, our Refresh Renovation Consultants know precisely how to take advantage of your condo’s original framework and update it to reflect a fresh new look.

Most Portland condo homeowners remodel to add resale or rental value to their property. This includes investing in practical improvements such as replacing floor and tiles, refurbishing walls, adding kitchen cabinets, and updating bathroom fixtures.

Many others remodel with the goal of making their condos more comfortable and enjoyable to live in. The biggest trend when it comes to this is utilizing an open floor concept and maximizing space to make your small condo look and feel bigger. This creates a seamless flow that allows for better home entertaining. 

As for the often small and cramped condo bathrooms, it’s all about focusing on what is most important to you. Your local Refresh Consultant can either help you completely change the layout and design of your ensuite, or simply replace the materials to help create a fresh new aesthetic.

The process for a Portland condo remodel

The Refresh process is one that's catered to your taste and lifestyle. Your local Renovation Consultant is your local expert and will be your guide from the first stage of planning until the final piece of paperwork. Your project begins with a brief consultation to flesh out your design plan and condo renovation ideas. Whether you're after a small condo bathroom renovation or a complete condo remodel, this first phase will get your ideas on the table.

Next, your Renovation Consultant will assess the feasibility of your project based on your budget and property. When remodeling a condo, there are plenty of permits and HOA regulations in place, which your Renovations Consultant will be able to help you adhere to as the project progresses.

After completing working drawings and final costing, the construction work begins. Your Renovation Consultant will have access to an incredible network of condo remodeling contractors to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to get your condo remodeled in Portland?

As no two projects are the same, the cost of remodeling a condo depends on the scope of work you want, the materials you choose, any existing damage, the required permits, as well as the amount of time and labor necessary to complete your remodel.

However, when you work with Refresh, your Renovation Consultant takes all these costs and factors into account and provides you with a fixed quote before the project begins. They also provide expert advice on staying within your planned budget.

Will Refresh take care of any permit applications?

Absolutely! Your Portland Renovation Consultant will ensure your condo remodel is carried out in accordance with all Oregon standards and regulations. Should your project require a building permit or sub-permit, Refresh will take care of the application process on your behalf.

For more information, please contact one of our local Renovation Consultants or check portlandoregon.gov.

Does Refresh deal with the Homeowners Association? 

With condominiums, you also have the Homeowners Association, who have their own rules and regulations: the CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions). Rest assured, the Refresh team is skilled at dealing with the HOA, having completed thousands of projects all over the world. This means you can sit back and relax while your remodel process is completed with exceptional results.

What is the condo remodeling process when working with a Refresh Portland Consultant?

Usually, renovating a condo comes with its fair share of complications because you only own what’s inside the walls of your apartment, whereas all exteriors such as shared areas, roofs, and potentially even balconies, are the collective property of all building residents. Condos also often include odd-angled walls and columns that are structurally key, therefore it’s wise to bring in a Refresh Renovation Consultant to figure out what walls can be moved or modified, and which ones need to stay in place to ensure your safety.

Refresh will take care of your entire project from beginning to end and make sure it is completed on time, on budget, and to the highest standards. 

Remodeling a condo in Portland can...

  • Add value to your property. Condo remodels can do wonders for property value. Whether your goal is a simple bathroom remodel for your condo or a larger-scale renovation, you are sure to increase your property's value with a condo redesign.
  • Add another room. Your condo should be able to change along with your lifestyle changes. Whether you'd like to add another bedroom or a home office, your Renovation Consultant can help you create that extra space.
  • Create open plan living. Reimagine your space with an open concept plan. In condo remodeling, this is a popular way to modernize a condo and creating a spacious flow in the home. Most often in small condo renovations, this open plan concept creates the illusion of more space and adds to usable square footage.
