How StreetSide Designs Homes for Families
Jan 23rd, 2018
From condos to townhomes to rowhomes, we understand the importance of a well-designed family home – a welcoming place that nurtures the growth of those you love.
With over 65 years of experience building homes for families, we’ve fine-tuned the formula of what works and we’ve discovered the essential elements necessary for a functional and warm home.
It starts in the heart, with an open-concept layout. Combining the living room and kitchen creates a large space to gather and entertain. In the living room, a fireplace can elevate the cozy atmosphere, acting as a centerpiece to huddle around in the winter months, and a simple shape allows for more furniture options.
There’s also space for a dining table, a setting for intimate meals and feasts with friends. A kitchen island invites company while cooking or a spot to read the morning news over a cup of coffee. Within this open plan, there are separate areas for all the members of your family to enjoy the feeling of home together.
An efficient kitchen is key with any family. Lots of storage, plenty of workspace, and appliances that make everyday living a breeze are all indispensable. A StreetSide kitchen integrates all of this, plus the attractive finishes that make you want to be there and proud of your home.
Beyond your open living area, bedrooms and bathrooms are designed to be sanctuaries, ideal places for a little quiet time. And, throughout the home, natural daylight brightens moods and contributes to a healthy ambiance.
In townhomes and rowhomes, which can have as many as four bedrooms plus a den, extra space can easily be used as a guest room, an office, or a playroom for the kids. These larger homes typically include a garage and a yard or patio. Barbecue your summer dinners, grow herbs, have a picnic, or enjoy the first snowfall of the year in your private outdoor space. The homes are just like single-family homes, but with the benefits of a lock-and-go lifestyle.
Outside your home, we create communities that bring families together. Common green spaces, play structures, or shared gardens encourage you to meet your neighbours and create lasting friendships for you and your kids.
We’re always looking for ways to improve spaces for family living, and we welcome your ideas and feedback.
