Long a sprawling suburban city, London Ontario has seen a recent increase in the number of condominiums being developed across the city. And while condo development companies are having no problems selling them, many new condo residents are faced with an interior decorating dilemma.
After all, many new condo owners are baby boomers who spent a large portion of their lives raising children in a single family house. Their children have since moved away and begun their own lives, and they no longer need the sprawling backyard or three plus bedroom home they once had.
Hence the desire to downsize. But moving from a house to a condo can be a daunting task for some of these people, who often find they have “too much stuff” to fit into their new home.
Deciding on what to keep, what to sell, and what to put into storage is an overwhelming prospect to those with a lifetime of memories built up in their home. As a result, many are turning to an interior decorator service to help. Mati Edwards of MatiDesign, a London Ontario interior decorating service, had this to say:
“People who have raised kids have usually been around long enough to have a good idea of what they want and what they don’t want in their homes. A good interior decorator knows this, and won’t be pushy or force their ideas down your throat. Instead, we can help gently guide you out of your comfort zone and consider new ideas. For example, people may have avoided buying a white couch out of fear their kids would ruin it. But now that their kids have grown, a white couch might not be so taboo.”
Condo development, many are hoping, will breathe new life into the city’s long-neglected downtown core. With more baby boomers reaching the age of retirement and losing interest in tending to a large garden or shoveling a two-lane driveway, condo life becomes more and more appealing, the hope is that they will bring their money and influence downtown. This can only be a good thing for the core’s businesses.
