Have you decided that the home you currently live in is where you want to raise your children? Maybe you have the perfect location, neighbours, schools, and neighbourhood! Sometimes, this means that a complete home renovation in Toronto is in order to transform your home into the ideal space that your family needs. iRemodel Home Renovations has created a list of areas and ideas you should focus on when having your home renovation completed.
Incorporate a “Great Room”
A great room is known to be an open concept floor plan that is located at the center of the home. It usually includes both the family room and living room and in some cases the kitchen. When planning your home for your family, a great room will give you good sightlines in order to see your children in your visual range where ever you might be.
Consider Adding a MudRoom
As the front entry can easily get congested when there is each family member traveling in and out, having a mudroom creates a space for everyone to keep their shoes and jackets neatly stored and out of sight. Have kids put their muddy boots and wet winter jacket away in the mudroom without having dirt tracked into the home.
Basement Renovation for Entertainment
When your children start to age, the demand for privacy begins to grow. Although each child has their own room, creating a basement hangout area with a TV to watch movies and a spot to play games, can make all the difference. A basement renovation can add value to your home and create a space for everyone to enjoy.
Include Enough Bathrooms
Are there enough bathrooms for the family? The rule of thumb here is to usually have two bathrooms for every three beds. This allows the family to function better in the morning and at night. As well, parents should always have their own luxury private ensuite bathroom to relax in!
Laundry Appliances & Storage
A laundry room has a variety of purposes to serve in a home. It should be a space to accommodate a washer and dryer, a spot to hang clothes, a folding space, and a space for ironing. Your laundry room should also incorporate storage space by adding shelves or cabinets to walls above the appliances. Also to note, when purchasing these appliances for a family, it’s best to invest in quality machines.
