A Home Of Generations

With the ever increasing change in our society and how it functions, it makes sense that we would see changes in the home life and the ways in which our families react to it! More and more, it is becoming increasingly normal for families to live together for longer periods of time. Children seem to be moving out at later ages for financial security and purpose, and parents seem to be moving in with their kids as they get older and may need a little extra help on their day to day. As we move towards a new norm involving more people in one place, we need to consider the home and how it can accommodate such changes in living styles and population increases.
When it comes to accommodating multiple people, in terms of space, the basement is one of the best locations to renovate and succeed in making a space for everyone. Basements are like blank sheets of paper that are just ready to be redesigned and formed into a new purpose. Lets break down the possibilities that could serve your extended home family!
  • Kitchens: generally kitchens can become crowded really fast with the generic population of four per household. So to not add to this burden, consider making a second kitchen in the basement that will be sufficient for the other members of the household and their daily foodie needs.
  • Bathrooms: Now that the basement is going to play a vital role in the everyday needs of your family, it will be important to make additions to the basement bathroom that is similar to your closet space in the entry way. See where room can be added and in what layout you can add the necessities like a shower or tub.
  • Main-floor bedroom: Depending on the additional household members, it may be a wise choice to add another bedroom on the main floor that will result in an easy maneuverability and security. Generally this could be for the older members of the family that may need a little more attention or have some restrictions on movement.
  • Generations of Design: Your home is a place of peace and tranquility, and should be for all members of the home. When making renovations for room and the necessities, be sure to include the variations of styles that are appreciated in the home and will create an environment that can be appreciated by everyone. We all need a space that we can call our own, and that space should reflect us.
  • Vehicle Accommodation: For those family members that use some form of assisted transportation,  they need to have an environment that is conductive to their assistance. This may require some alterations to the doorways and hallways, usually a widening for allotment of moving space. Another thought is the  removing the normal swing doors and replacing them with pocket doors, which may prove to be an easier interaction for the family member.
As the generations come together, the home should be reflective in that cohesion. If your family is becoming bigger in the home, or remaining at maximum capacity, consider renovations for the home that will translate to a form of embrace for everyone involved!
