If you are planning to renovate your home in the near future, it is important to take into account the fact that your children may be staying at home longer than you had originally anticipated. Rising costs in housing and the ability to complete post secondary education goals remotely on a laptop, have led to a renewal in home office and suite renovations. With the cost of college tuition on the rise, more young adults are staying at home longer. This is great news for parents who want to save money, but it can be a challenge when it comes time to renovate a home. This shift is having a major impact on the way families live and work, and it's also changing the home renovation industry.

You may need to make changes to your design: If you were planning on a complete overhaul of your home’s interior, you may need to scale back those plans if your children are going to be living at home for an extended period of time. Instead, focus on making smaller changes that will still provide a fresh look and feel for your home, like interior painting and installing new floors.

You may need to reconsider the timing of your project: If you were hoping to complete your renovation before your children left for college, you may need to adjust your timeline. With your children staying at home longer, it is important to factor in their schedules and needs when planning your renovation. Your children may need their own bedroom or suite. If this is the case, you will need to choose flooring that is durable and easy to clean. Carpet is a good option for bedrooms, as it is quiet and warm, but you may want to avoid using it in areas where they spend a lot of time, such as the living room or kitchen. Instead, opt for durable hardwood floors or tile, which are more resistant to damage.

If you would like to explore options in flooring for a home office or suite, visit a local showroom. You’ll discover a stimulating gallery setting and knowledgeable staff with experience in flooring solutions to accommodate young adults who stay in the family home.
