Approximately 4.3 million people have done it in the last 12 months, and an average Canadian will do it 5-6 times in their lifetime. What is it you may ask? MOVING!

People move for many different reasons.  You may move because

  • Your family has grown (marriage, kids, taking in grandparents)
  • Your job has relocated.
  • You move to attend a new college or university, looking for a larger backyard or home in the country or closer to a city/hospital.

The reasons to move are endless, and many people live in multiple homes throughout their lifetime.

Here are some interesting stats from the Canadian Association of Movers.

Why Do Canadians Move?

  • Family size increase (marriage, kids) – 42%
  • Job relocation – 37 percent, but much higher in Alberta – 53%
  • Family size decrease (divorce, death, empty nest) – 20%
  • Retirement – 18%
  • Came into more money – 14%
  • Home needed renovations – 14%

There are many things to think about when moving and logistically several items to coordinate, book, plan, and budget. One commonly forgotten thing is WINDOW COVERINGS!

People tend to remember air conditioning, furniture, appliances, fencing, but blinds, shades, and shutters are often overlooked.  At the time of purchasing a new home, everyone admires large, open windows and lots of them.  The natural light pouring into your new home only highlights the features of this new space and welcomes you into it.  However, once moved in, you will be looking for window shades to dim bedrooms for sleeping, block harsh UV rays, protect hardwood floors and furniture, provide privacy and add décor value to your home.  There are so many window treatments to choose! Where to start?  Check out our full library of blogs to help guide you through different window coverings, advantages and disadvantages to each product. You can learn about bathroom blinds, patio door blinds, bedroom blinds, office blinds, kitchen blinds, dining room blinds, recreation room and basement blinds, theater room blinds, garden door blinds and more. https://miltonblinds.com/blog/
