The years you just can’t hide
How dated is your house? If you asked five strangers to name its era, what would they say?
Would they automatically answer: “New! Lovely! Updated”? Or would they say “Oh, SO last century! Time for a change”?
Or might they say: “Timeless. Classic. Elegantly fresh for today”?
You can probably guess when you enter a home how up to date it is. Some places bear the obvious signs of another era. Orange shag carpet and avocado appliances come to mind, unless they’re meant to be retro. There are dozens of other signs, of course. Some you just can’t hide.
If you love your house but want to bring it to 2017 standards, you’ll find first-class renovators in the Ottawa area who can beautifully transform it for you. Many are members of RenoMark™, which is the sign of a professional renovator.
A “dated” home also means “dated” for your life. If your home was perfect while your children were toddlers, or if it suited you as a young family just starting out, that level of “perfect” may no longer be relevant. If your children have grown, or if they have moved out to start their own lives, or if you need a suite for the older generation, it’s probably obvious to you that it’s time for some updating.
Of course, “dated” can just mean you’re tired of the way your home looks. If you’ve been staring at the same old layout and design for 20 years, you probably know exactly what that feels like.
Renovation doesn’t have to mean a total makeover. Good renovators will help you create one change, or guide you through a bigger renovation in stages, just as it suits you.
When a skilled professional takes you through those stages, they can see ahead and plan accordingly, so there is no need for any of the work to be done again. It’s a sensible way to keep your renovation costs – and your stress level – down.
Is your home showing its age? Maybe it’s time to give it some beauty treatment from professional home beauticians. Check the RenoMark™ directory. And let the journey begin.
