Home Sweet Home: Making Your Space Perfect for You

When older adults retire, they often focus so much on their new lifestyle that they don’t stop to consider if they are living in a space that not only fits their needs, but their wants as well. While choosing the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of is important, it’s equally important to choose and enjoy a home that is perfect for you. This can often mean choosing the right floor plan, making customizations and decorating in a way that reflects who you are. This is important for a number of reasons!

“When customizing your home, it’s important to have an idea of what you’re looking for,” says Jeanie Tini, Marketing Director at The Estates at Carpenters, a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, Florida. “Do you want roomy and spacious? Do you want space to entertain? Do you want a blank slate or simply some say in the design and color scheme? Do you think you’ll spend a lot of time in your home or very little? While it may seem like these decisions are easy, when you’re choosing your forever home, you may find it’s much harder than you thought! We can easily help with input from our Move-In Coordinator and customizations and inspiration from our design studio.”

Turn Your Home from Ordinary to Extraordinary at The Estates

There are a number of ways that we can help you put your own stamp on your new home! Consider some of the many choices you have at The Estates.

  • Choose a room with a view. Tour the community and choose the floor plan and room with the view you want to see. Do you want a patio or lanai? Do you prefer to see nature or the hustle and bustle of the community? By knowing your options ahead of time, you can enjoy exactly the view of your choice.
  • Make sure your chosen floor plan is big enough. If you currently feel cramped in your home, choose a bigger floor plan. If you know you don’t need near as much space as you have now, choose a smaller plan. No matter your preferences, we have floor plans to meet your needs and desires. The Estates offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes with 13 unique floor plans ranging from 475 to 2,500 sq. ft – one for every budget, one perfect for you.
  • Ensure you have adequate space to entertain or enjoy the company of others. Need an extra bedroom for the grandchildren? Want an island in the kitchen so you can entertain? Does the thought of an open floor plan appeal to you as you cook with guests over? It’s important to consider your future needs and preferences ahead of time so you are able to sit back and enjoy the company and not feel cramped.
  • Customizations Available. Does your bedroom need a pop of color? Do customized floors, closet systems, countertops and window treatments sound like something you’d enjoy choosing? Work in our design studio to create the home you want! Then, decorate it to fit your style. Check out the thrift stores, buy unique pieces and display your most treasured items on custom shelving. It’s all about making your space reflect you!
