Many Baby Boomers are buying Real Estate in Victoria and it is a trend that will continue for some time.  A recent article by Joanne Hatherly, Times Colonist reads:

How do you ignore 10 million baby boomers?

The answer is: You can’t.

With those numbers in mind, the KitchenAid Kitchens for Cooks Institute’s recent Kitchen Trend Report predicts that aging boomers will demand the home’s first “age-free spaces.”

P.J. Wade, strategist for KAKCI, says the notion of a kitchen built just for a particular age or mobility group will fall away as all kitchens will be built for all generations.

“Age-free environments have flexibility designed in,” writes Wade who predicts that universal design, which is used now in homes for mobility-impaired people, will become commonplace.

What will kitchens of the future look like? Wade says they’ll have wide hallways for ease of access, levered door handles and adjustable-height counters. That will make them as good for Grandma as they are for grand-kids when it comes to food preparation in the kitchen. End of Article.

Since my own love for cooking and food rates up there with oxygen, the kitchen is very important to me. Last year Liz and I did a complete renovation on our kitchen, it was a fantastic project and when everything was said and done we spent over $50,000. For us this was worth every penny since we entertain a lot and also have a large blended family with family dinners every Monday night.

If you have some kitchen ideas, just drop us a comment below. We would love to hear from you.

You can contact us anytime should you have any questions about Victoria Real Estate.
