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.

Tips for Packing Your Bags Without Stress

September 6, 2019

Packing your bags with everything you need for a trip, without bringing too much, can be a challenge.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of saying, “I’ll bring this along, just in case.” Before you know it, you have a suitcase that is overflowing with “just in case” items and is impossible to carry. Bringing an over-packed bag with you can actually make your vacation more stressful. You’ll struggle to drag it around and you’ll have to pay more in excess baggage fees.

However, with a few tips you can reduce the amount of stuff you bring with you and make packing a lot less stressful. Here are our helpful tips for packing your bags:

Packing Your Bags, The Smart Way

– Buy a smaller bag. We have a tendency to fill whichever bag or backpack we bring with us, so choosing a smaller bag will force you to be more minimal.
– Packing cubes are your best friend. They will allow you to organize your clothes according to category (pants, shirts, underwear, etc.) Then, you can bring out only the cube you need rather than having to unpack your entire bag.
– Choose clothing from lightweight but high-performance fabrics like merino wool, which will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
– When traveling in an unpredictable climate, bring multiple layers rather than one large coat. Bring your bulkiest coat on the plane so you don’t have to squeeze it into your luggage.
– Make sure that everything mixes and matches. All your tops should be able to be worn with all your bottoms. If not, it’s not worth bringing.
– Bring along items that do double duty. For example, a sarong can be used as a shawl, a swimsuit cover-up, a towel, a scarf and a blanket. A pair of dressy flip flops can be worn to the beach as well as out to a restaurant in the evening.

Packing cubes are your best friend!


– Stick with neutral colours so that everything will match, then add visual interest with scarves and accessories.
– You only need to pack enough clothes for 7 days, even if you are traveling for months at a time. You’ll simply need to wash them at your accommodation (if you’re in a furnished apartment with laundry) or find a laundromat once per week.
– Roll your clothing rather than folding it. Your clothes will take up less room and will look less wrinkled when you unpack them.
– Roll your socks and underwear into balls and place them inside your shoes. Why waste the space within the shoes?
– Don’t bother bringing toiletries you know your hotel or apartment will offer, or that you will be able to buy cheaply in your destination.
– Pack the heavier items at the bottom of your suitcase, as this will make it easier to roll your bag. Also, it will be less likely to tip over.

Last but not least, consider making a list of everything you packed and actually used on your trip. Next time you travel, you’ll be able to refer to your list and pack only the items you’ll need and nothing else.

Medical Stays in Toronto: What You Need to Know

July 26, 2019

If you are traveling for medical treatment – it can be a stressful experience.

Unlike traveling for a vacation, when you travel for medical stays in Toronto you may need to stay for awhile and you may be in some state of discomfort. This is why having a comfortable place to say is so important.

The short term, furnished apartments at The Livmore provide a convenient environment where you can rest and feel at home – which will help aid you in your recovery during medical stays in Toronto.

Toronto’s Medical System

Canada has a publicly funded, private provided healthcare system. Public Health Insurance is handled at a provincial level and when you go to see a doctor, it is covered by the taxes you pay.

This health-care system has an excellent reputation around the world and many international tourists visit to seek out treatment in high quality private clinics. In addition to the many robust public health facilities in Toronto, there are also a collection of high end clinics that offer treatment from doctors and specialist staff. (Here’s a guide to the best and worst hospitals in Toronto, from local website blogTO.)

Whether you’re coming to Toronto for a necessary operation, an examination or a cosmetic procedure, you’ll find the medical care in this city top notch.

Priorities for Your Medical Stay

When it comes to planning for a medical-related trip to Toronto, the following considerations will need your attention:

– Cutting down on expenses. Medical treatments are a large expense, so anything you can do to save money in other departments is desirable. A short term rental offers better value compared to a hotel, so you can cut costs here.
– Cooking for yourself. When you are recovering from a surgery or an illness, you might need to adjust your diet. Also, you might not feel like dining out in a restaurant every night. Having your own kitchen allows you to prepare the food that suits your needs – in the privacy of your home away from home.
– A home-like atmosphere. It’s hard to relax fully in a hotel room, as it doesn’t give you the feeling of being at home.
– Longer-term stay options. Chances are, if you are visiting Toronto for medical reasons, you might need to stay for awhile as you recover. Furnished apartments offer longer term rental options, so you can take your time.
– Necessary medications. Make sure that you have a prescription for all medications that you will need to carry you through the duration of your stay – including painkillers and antibiotics. If you need to stock up, there are many pharmacies located nearby in downtown Toronto.
– Friends and family. Recovering from an operation or an illness is much easier when you have loved ones around to support you. Staying in a furnished apartment with multiple bedrooms allows you to bring companions along who can assist.

Condo Energy Saving Tips

February 28, 2019

Condo Energy SavingEven if you live in a condo with a relatively small footprint, you may still be using a significant amount of energy – which can really add up over time. Fortunately, there are many little things that you can do which will help you to cut down on your energy consumption. These small condo energy saving tweaks can add up over time and make a big difference in your energy bill.

Here are some helpful tips. They might not all be relevant to your condo, but there will be many that you can start implementing right away in order cut back on energy use.

 Condo Energy Saving Tips

Condo Energy Saving -Ensure that the furniture in your apartment is not blocking any of the vents.

-Try to avoid running your dishwasher or other appliances during peak hours, to save time and energy. Check the Ontario Energy Board to find out when the peak and off-peak hours are, as they change according to the season.

-Also, when you run the washing machine make sure that you do a full load, as this will be more efficient.

-Washing your laundry on the “cold” setting will save even more power.

-Watch out for energy “vampires” which are devices that use power when they are plugged in – even if you aren’t using them. A good strategy is to plug everything into a power bar, so that you can switch it all off at once.

-LED lighting really makes a difference! Although they are more expensive upfront, an LED light bulb will last 8-15 times longer and will use 1/3 to 1/5 the electricity that an old-fashioned incandescent bulb would use.

-When you go out on a hot day, keep your curtains closed to block the sun from heating up your apartment – so you won’t have to use so much AC.

Condo Energy Saving -Make sure that you clean your vents regularly, including the exhaust fan in the bathroom, as this will help to keep them running more efficiently.

-Filling your fridge with full water jugs will help to keep it colder and make it run more efficiently.

-Heating water also uses energy, so avoid taking excessively long showers and turn the tap off when you are shaving or brushing your teeth.

With a few clever tweaks, you can make sure that your energy use in your condo is as efficient as possible. You’ll be amazed at how the little changes add up!
