As we spend more time at home for the foreseeable future, it’s more important than ever to create home we love. An experienced design-build team can help identify what that looks like and how to achieve it.

Fall in love with your home all over again

Get creative for spaces that work in the home you love

As you think about your home and stroll through the familiar rooms, what do you love?

The neighbourhood might jump to mind, or the yard, but what about the space itself … Would an up-to-date kitchen make those cooking sessions with the grandkids more enjoyable? Maybe a luxe bathroom would provide the retreat you need in these hectic times.

The fact is, as we spend more time at home for the foreseeable future, it’s more important than ever to create a home you love, explains Robbyn McDonald, from MAC Renovations in Saanich.

“We’re seeing considerable interest from homeowners who in other years might have invested in travel and now want to invest that time and energy in their homes,” McDonald says. “What do you love about your home right now, and how could you love it more?”

To gain a better understanding of your home and how you want to use it, it’s important to determine both what you want to renovate, and why – perhaps you think you need more space, for example, but really you just want a more functional layout. “This is why our comprehensive design-build process is key to pinpointing what you want, what you need, and how to achieve it,” McDonald says.

Kitchens: For years at the top of the renovation list, kitchens assume even more importance as we stay close to home. Whether you enjoy entertaining your close friends and family, need more space to get creative with the grandkids, or need the right tools to support your expanding culinary repertoire, the right kitchen makes all the difference!

Bathrooms: Luxurious spa getaways are a little harder to come by these days, and in fact, getting just a few moments alone can be challenging with everyone at home. That’s just one reason bathroom renovations are a popular way to create your own escape, if only for an hour at a time. Whether it’s carving out a little more space or upgrading the fixtures and finishes, a bathroom renovation can be a great way to find your happy place.

Creating a home that works: Whether it’s creating an open, family-friendly layout or transforming a basement for your university student now Zoom-learning at home, the MAC professionals will help make your vision a reality.

Other dreams are longer-term. Some families are creating an inviting suite for the homeowners, while the younger generation settles into the larger space with their own children, McDonald notes. Everyone gets to stay in the community they love, with parents aging safely in place, children finding a solution to a challenging real estate market, and families staying connected at home, no matter what the future brings.
