Delsuites Offers Convenient Accommodation During Home Renovations

September 27, 2019

Renovating your home? Get out of the dust and noise and into a furnished Toronto apartment rental.

If you are currently undergoing a renovation on your home, there are a lot of advantages to vacating the property while the work is going on. You may want to stay put, but sticking around during a renovation can be stressful and can delay the progress.

Why You Should Find Accommodation During Home Renovations

Here are some of the reasons to find somewhere else to stay during a remodel:

– Although rentals do cost extra money, it can also cost money if you stay at home and you are in the way. Many contractors will charge more for projects where clients stay in the house, as this can slow down the construction process and cause additional cleanup costs.
– If the remodel is extensive (for example, if the roof or walls will be removed), the contractor may need to turn off your electricity, heating or air conditioning – which will make your home unlivable.
– The noise caused by home renovations can be stressful for cats and dogs. There is a greater likelihood that they will escape via a door or window left open.
– There will be loud noises, plenty of dust and non-functioning bathroom facilities. This can make your home very unpleasant to live in during the renovation.
– You may be paying contractors by the hour. If you end up in long conversations with them, you will end up paying more for the project. It’s better to let them do their work uninterrupted and check in occasionally.
– If the kitchen is being renovated, you face the option of eating out in restaurants or eating processed, microwaved meals for several weeks or months. This is neither affordable nor healthy.

Also, just being involved in the day to day action of a remodeling project can be draining. There’s something nice about being able to escape to clean and quiet accommodation during renovations. You can let the contractors do their job and then return home to a beautifully remodeled home.

Toronto – A Pet-Friendly City

September 20, 2019

Although Toronto is one of the largest, busiest and densest cities in Canada – it is surprisingly pet-friendly.

In fact, Torontonians love their animal friends. According to city planning staff, there are three to five dogs per floor in Toronto condos. There’s a growing number of dog-friendly establishments in the downtown area, and the general attitude to canine companions is a welcoming one.

In fact, Toronto condos are beginning to build in pet-friendly features to attract a clientele with canine companions – such as dog grooming services, dog parks, pet shops and pet-friendly cafes.

The Livmore is a great example. On the fifth floor of this chic, stylish downtown Toronto apartment building you will find a convenient dog-friendly area – which is home to a pet spa and an outdoor play area known as the “Bark Park.” This area, lined with artificial turf, features fire hydrants, benches and even a mini obstacle course for dogs to play on.

The pet-friendly aspects of the Livmore are just one of the many examples of how Toronto offers our furry friends a warm welcome.

What Makes Toronto Pet-Friendly?

Let’s take a look at some of the other aspects of the city that make Toronto a great place to hang out with your canine companion.

Welcoming Shops

Many of the boutiques and shops between Bathurst and Gladstone are dog friendly and won’t mind if you bring your pooch in with you while you look around. They might even offer water and treats for your furry friend.

Laid Back Breweries

If you want to enjoy a local beer, there are many places where you can bring your four-legged companion. For example, at local craft brewery Henderson Brewing, they host monthly dog friendly events and dogs are always welcome whenever you stop in for a tasting.

Green Spaces

There are many great parks and wilderness areas scattered throughout the city where you and your dog can get some exercise and fresh air. For example, downtown Toronto borders Lake Ontario to the South, so you can head down to the waterfront to take a stroll along the boardwalk.

There’s also Trinity Bellwoods park, which features a Dog Bowl off-leash area, where you and your pooch can hang out with many other dogs of Toronto and their owners.

Pet-Friendly Transport

Dogs are allowed on the Toronto transport system of buses, streetcars and subways – as long as it is outside of rush hour. So, you can bring your pooch on public transport and explore the city with them!

Canine-Loving Eateries

While most cafes and restaurants in Toronto will not allow your dog inside due to health and safety laws, there are still plenty of dog-friendly places to eat. For example, at Lick It Gelato on Queens Quay West, your pooch is welcome and they even sell a “doggie gelato” that is dairy and sugar free.
