Decorating Ideas to Create A Luxurious Feel in Your Condo

If you are downsizing from a large house into a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may be wondering how to decorate your new space. Your new lake lifestyle at Isla Del Sol Condominiums should be low maintenance, yet still be high-end so you can take advantage of all the lake has to offer including world class boating, golfing, fishing, and shopping. It is important to organize your space wisely to take advantage of storage areas while still maintaining a lavish look. Here are some top-notch decorating ideas that compromise on space, but not style:

Downsize In Your Kitchen and Dining Area

By living in a luxury condo at the Lake of the Ozarks, you have access to many great waterfront restaurants. If this limits your time in the kitchen and dining area, there may not be a need for large appliances or bulky dining tables and chairs. Play up the expansive view of the lake with sleek dark walls. It's dramatic yet friendly and cozy. It makes a perfect atmosphere to enjoy hors d'oeuvres with a few friends or neighbors. 

Create Privacy In Your Living Area

Place a table in front of a full-length window. This may seem detrimental to the 360 degree panoramic views you receive at Isla Del Sol Condominiums, but wall-to-wall windows can sometimes be intimidating. You can anchor them by putting a small sofa and table or bench in front of them. Hanging full-length drapes to frame the window and add intimacy can create a luxurious feel. You will still have the stunning Lake of the Ozarks as your backdrop.

Accessorize Your Space 

Incorporate some bright-colored accessories into your space. Step up a solid interior with small pops of color. Use candles, throw pillows, vases, and flowers in the season's hottest hues. To help you choose a color to use as an accent piece, pick a color in the largest pattern in the room, whether it is in
the drapes, upholstery fabric, or large rug. Then choose a color based upon that piece.  

Accentuate Your Fireplace

Go floor to ceiling with your fireplace. Turn the fireplace wall into the focal point of the room by choosing show-stopping decor that stretches to the ceiling. Instead of a piece of artwork, you could add mosaic tiles that would reflect light on the wall from the glow of the embers. Another option is to add a mantle if it does not already have one. Paint it a bold color or add some eye-catching objects to it.

Isla Del Sol Condominiums Offer Style and Functionality

If you are ready to discover your Lake of the Ozarks luxury condo, then look no further than Isla Del Sol Condominiums. This spectacular condo project offers all the luxuries of a large home along with incredible amenities including an exquisite resort-style lakeside pool with zero-entry fountains, and splash fountains for children, a dog walking area, ample parking, boat docks and PWC slips. You will feel right at home in your private island escape.

14 Tips to Make Your Condo Move Easy and Stress Free

Packing up all of your things and moving to a new Lake of the Ozarks condo may seem like an overwhelming task. Unless you are a minimalist, moving can take time and can be a considerable amount of work. However, by planning ahead and staying organized, you will be ready to enjoy your luxury condo at the Lake of the Ozarks in no time. And of course, it doesn't hurt to keep your end goal in mind. You will soon be sitting poolside at Isla Del Sol Condominiums. Here are some steps to get ahead and make your move as stress free as possible:

1. Get Organized Ahead of Time

Avoid waiting until the last minute. Create a list of items you need to get accomplished and order them week by week.If you have extra bedrooms and storage areas that are rarely used, this is a good place to start.

2. Plan Your Moving Strategy

Your moving strategy will depend on if you are moving across town or to another city or state. If you are just downsizing or moving to another neighborhood, you may be able to talk some of your friends and family into helping you move. If you are moving long distance, you will probably want to consider pricing out various moving companies and vehicles. In any case, know your plan ahead of time.

3. Get Rid of Your Unwanted Items

This is your chance to purge any items that you are no longer using. If you have enough time and the time of year permits, hold a garage sale. There are also many online websites you can sell your larger items, such as furniture. Local charity organizations will accept gently used clothing and other goods.

4. Put Together Packing Kits

Make a kit for each person packing. Include inventory sheets, a black marker, boxes, tape, and packing materials. Go room by room and have a system, to make unpacking easily done.

5. Reuse Boxes

Each time you go to the grocery store before move day, bring home a couple of boxes. Keep in mind, large boxes can get heavy when full and smaller boxes can be easier to carry up staircases and narrow hallways.

6. Take Inventory of Your Items

Keep track of everything that you pack, especially if you hire a moving company. Consider making a spreadsheet with all of the boxes and their contents. This will be useful if something goes missing. You can number each of the boxes and label them with the corresponding room.

7. Label Everything

If you have hired a moving company or even just recruited friends, it is important that they know what room each box belongs in. Be sure to label the box on all sides with a permanent marker. This way it can be visible in a stack of boxes.

8. Find Out Your Condo Rules

In most condos, you cannot just backup your truck to the front door and unload your belongings. If you are on an upper level unit, you may be dealing with stairs or putting items into the complex's elevator. Talk to the condo association beforehand about where you can park and if there is a service elevator.

9. Prepare a Moving Day Kit

Keep one box aside for the day of the move for "essentials". Pack cleaning supplies, light bulbs, toilet paper, garbage bags, your toiletries, and a change of clothes.

10. Schedule Deliveries After Moving Day

If you have purchased any new furniture for your condo, schedule delivery for after moving day. This will keep you focused on the task at hand and avoid congestion between movers and delivery people.

11. Hook Up Utilities and Other Services

Before you get settled in, find out how essential services (gas, electric, water, etc.) are supposed to be transferred from the previous owner to you. If necessary, have your Internet, cable, and phone line hooked up as well.

12. Find a Pet Sitter for the Day

If you have a pet that could get nervous about a move, arrange for them to stay somewhere for the day. If you have a long-distance move, make sure to have safe transport for your pet.

13. Greet Your Neighbors

Let your neighbors know what your up to by not only telling them what unit you will be living in, but what vehicles you are in for the day. Make sure moving trucks aren't blocking their exit.

14. Treat Your Movers

Last, but not least, be sure to acknowledge your friends and family that helped you move. Be prepared with food and drinks when everyone is ready to take a break!

Moving can be an emotional time, but can easily be managed with some planning and organization. Isla Del Sol Condominiums is ready for you to discover your new private condominium paradise. Once you move into your waterfront condo at the Lake of the Ozarks we are sure you won't regret it!
