Planning: Bathroom Renovations

Bathrooms are usually the smallest rooms in the home so owners can afford to splurge on luxurious finishes such as sleek vanities, high-end tile, sophisticated hardware, or even a fireplace. Today, there are more options to choose from than ever before and while that can be helpful, it can also be overwhelming. When looking at thousands of product samples, where do you start? And how do you create a cohesive, coordinated bathroom design?

I have a mix of annuals and perennials during the spring and summer months, and I do try (in most cases) to transfer the perennials indoors prior to the onset of frost at night.

Coping with Higher Interest Rates and Ideas for Saving

In the one-year period from May 2022 to May 2023, interest rates more than doubled. The prime rate (an average of the best rates of major commercial banks) rose from 3.2% to 6.7% while the underlying Bank of Canada overnight lending rate rose from 1% to 4.5%.

The effect on Canadian homeowners has been significant. Imagine a family makes monthly payments on a $300,000 variable rate mortgage with a 25-year amortization. At 3.2%, the monthly payment would be $1,450, but at 6.7%, the monthly payment becomes $2,046—a difference of $596 each month.
