Choosing flooring that works throughout a home is difficult. Our experts are extremely useful here as they can advise on what is best and most likely to remain in style for a longer period of time.

House: This would be the most expensive when compared to the condo and the townhouse in terms of both, total purchase price and ongoing maintenance, but also gives you the most independence and privacy. You will not have any shared walls and you will even have a yard or a garden. A yard is also great for pets, children, barbeques, private pools, hot tubs, and relaxing in the fresh air. Houses are normally bigger than condos and townhouses, so you will probably have more space. Houses typically have the best investment value when compared to another form of homes.

Home DesignBrowse through our kitchen design, bathroom design, bedroom design, and additional living spaces to create a sanctuary no matter the room. There are many directions you can take when planning each room. Deciding on which room is most important, and what you use it for, is a useful idea. For example, if you would like a bedroom which is a personal getaway from the rest of the house, then choosing calming colours and a large bed, can really add to this relaxing feel. Home ideas are all very personal and so having a few decorating ideas before you start a new room is imperative. The modern room design is a popular one now amongst many home owners as, although the style is evolving, it is an easy one to create and maintain without a lot of effort. The simple and matching colour palette can be used in most rooms too, creating an easy solution for home design ideas.

I’ve been using this app for several months to dive neck deep into a remodel project, however lately it continuously freezes up on me. I have been unable to do more than open a drawing, click on a task and that’s it. Done. I close, clear history, reopen only to have the same thing happen. It’s now pretty much useless. I’ve tried many times to delete the app and reinstall without success. I’ve got a lot of hours of work into my remodel layouts including accurate house measurements AND furniture measurements. I’m incredibly frustrated. I tried clicking on ‘support’ and got some nearly illegible message about ‘maintenance’. And yes, I did purchase all the ‘in app options’.
