Planning for Long-term Renovations

 

If you are planning to renovate your house, why not do it proper so it lasts a lifetime? Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to live in the same house from adulthood till retirement age. Always go for layouts that can be used and adapted easily by individuals of different ages as well as by people with disabilities.
 
The problem with most home renovation styles is that they are not designed keeping children, disabled and elderly people in mind. It is recommended to go for design elements that are kid-friendly and safe enough to be used by an elderly person. Because disability can happen unexpectedly, it is important for your home to be easily accessible by wheelchairs or other special equipment. Also, arthritis patients need to open cabinets and doors effortlessly to avoid pain, and keep in mind stairs can pose challenges for young and old alike.
 
While going for home renovation in Montreal, don’t blindly follow trends, but opt for styles, finishes, and materials that will stand the test of time without becoming dated. Instead of focusing on the current trends, keep in mind design elements that have stayed the test of time.
 
Go for furniture with outdoor fabric upholstery since they can be easily maintained and cleaned. When it comes to kitchen flooring, go for natural stone and tile instead of vinyl. Though the latter can be replaced at a cheap price, it can be a real hassle to replace.
 
The kitchen often turns out to be one of the most expensive corners of a home for remodeling. So take extra effort to design a timeless kitchen by combing quality, technology, and functionality. As tempting as trends can be, avoid designing a trendy and cutting-edge kitchen.
 
Unless you for-see yourself remodeling again in a few short years!
