With the COVID-19 pandemic slowly diminishing, it’s been a pleasure seeing loved ones again, attending essential appointments like the dentist, and trying to get to a new normal. However, after two years of travel restrictions, a halt to dining out and being stuck at home, there’s an increase in Canadians remodelling and doing home renovations.
In 2021, almost 1 in 3 people in Ontario have or were planning to do home renovations (Chaudhury, 2021). That statistic also increased for homes in rural locations, like the Bay of Quinte and Prince Edward County, because homeownership rates tend to be higher outside of larger cities (Chaudhury, 2021).
Our homes have developed into the central spot for where we eat, work, play, study, rest and entertain. Who wouldn’t want to make their home functional and beautiful, especially when you’re in it 24 hours a day and seven days a week?
A New Normal
With home automation becoming readily available and more affordable, it’s becoming the new normal for its many benefits. For example, it increases the value of your home, is energy efficient, and has the potential to get you savings in home insurance.
However, investing in home automation can range anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on your wants and needs. You have a budget, emergency expenses come up, and a renovation (both big and small) can feel overwhelming. And this is when financing can become necessary.
