Now that it looks like we’re all going to be working from home in some capacity for the foreseeable future, why not make the most of it? A & R Renovations offers home renovations such as hardwood flooring, new energy efficient windows, and freshly painted walls that can all add to your quality of life. Two popular home renovations right now are building home offices and turning basements into apartments.
As a home renovation, building a home office in your basement or another part of your house has many benefits. Perhaps most importantly it creates a separation from work and private time. This can not only help to reduce stress by taking your mind off of work when it doesn’t need to be, but it can also improve your productivity.
A home office creates a place for privacy, where you can go to “put on your game face” and avoid interruptions such as traffic, kids, and endless other distractions.
Turn Your Basement into an Apartment with a Basement Renovation
Now that the price of condos is not much lower than the price of homes, your previous plans to sell your large house and move to a smaller condo may have been put on hold. If this is the case, perhaps a basement renovation that turns your downstairs into an apartment may be a good idea.
Turning your basement into a self-sufficient apartment is a basement renovation that offers benefits, such as a source of income, potential companionship, or even a place for friends and family to stay over for the weekend or on holidays. Besides, staying in the home you love allows you to stay in the neighbourhood you know, support the local businesses you have known “forever”, and stay close to your friends. So why not give us a call for more ideas on how to spruce up your empty nest?
