Reinvent your old home by updating it to modern living standards.

It’s no secret that modern families live differently from how they once did, even just a few years ago. As a result, older homes in established areas with boxed-in, individual rooms simply doesn’t cut it for our 21st-century lifestyles. Small, ill-placed windows are common in these older homes, which means homeowners can’t make the most of the views, outdoor living connections or passive-solar design principles. However, you don’t need to resort to demolition to get the home of your dreams. Older homes can be adapted to suit modern lifestyles through an open-plan addition.

Deter Demolition

You may think that you have to start from scratch to create open plan living. However, an older home can be turned into a functional modern home easier than you may realize. Building a new structure within your existing home may leave you with a far superior design than starting new.

Functional Space

Modern families want open plan living rather than several individual rooms. Not only does this bring people together, but it is functional for kids, parents, and seniors. Assess the space that you already have and add in the most practical solution. For example, boxed-in individual rooms of the existing house could function well as bedrooms or an additional bathroom. Take note of where you get natural light and implement windows and doors to bring the sunshine in, too.

Eco-friendly Construction

Eco-consciousness is a concern growing in today’s society. From recycling every material to changing the way we eat, there are plenty of ways to help the environment. Your older home doesn’t have to be inefficient with energy. The added benefit of the new addition containing the living zones is that it can be built using improved construction materials. As a result, walls, floors, and ceilings are better insulators, which help to keep the energy bill down.
