Building for a Lifetime: 4 Ways to Future-Proof Your Home

A home is one of the biggest investments you can make in your life. Hence, it is important to make sure that it stands the test of time. But with today’s unpredictable living conditions, making sure your home is future-ready is no longer just about how it can accommodate a growing family. These days, it’s also important to plan how a home can adapt to other future uncertainties. This is what future-proofing is all about: ensuring that your home remains sturdy, sustainable, efficient, cost-effective and adaptable through time. Future-proofing is about making sure that your new home becomes your forever home. And we’re here to give you 4 tips on how you can do this:

1: Investing in a Strong Foundation

Narra Park Residences Avia creates stronger homes with cast-in-place concrete.

The foremost way to guarantee that you have a home that lasts is to invest in a house built by a trusted developer using high quality building materials and tried-and-tested construction techniques. Alsons Dev’s newest housing development, Narra Park Residences Avia, is one such development.

Located in a master-planned township, Avia Estate in Alabel, Sarangani, Narra Park Residences Avia uses a construction method called cast-in-place concrete. With this method, concrete is poured directly into steel-reinforced molds and the molds are removed after the concrete has hardened. Doing this allows for a more solid structure with excellent structural integrity, avoiding the weak joints often caused by precast concrete or hollow blocks. By making sure that your home is made with the best construction materials and techniques, you ensure its sustainability and durability, not just with normal wear and tear as the home ages, but also its resilience when faced with natural calamities.

2: Maximizing Natural Light and Ventilation

Bring down your home’s energy consumption by maximizing natural light & ventilation.

One way to future-proof your home is to reduce its energy consumption to minimize your impact on the environment. A design choice can affect your home’s energy efficiency. Take Asian Tropical architecture for example, which features big windows that allow for more ventilation and natural light. This design lessens the need to turn on lights, fans and air conditioners in your home, which will not only lessen your home’s carbon footprint, but will also bring down your power bill.

3: Making Your Home Smarter

Create a more comfortable home with smart technology.

Integrating smart technology into homes is becoming more and more common. Investing in things like an automated home security system, a self-regulating lighting or air conditioning system, or a smart home entertainment system may seem costly initially, but it will make your home technologically relevant for more years to come. This, coupled with more energy-saving alternatives like investing in solar panels or choosing light fixtures and appliances that have higher energy efficiency ratings, can also help you consume less energy, and will save you money in the long run. More importantly, it will make living in your home easier and more comfortable for you and your family.

4: Embracing the Multipurpose Mantra

Multipurpose furniture and rooms save you both space and money.

Having spaces and furniture that serve multiple functions is a smart investment. An ottoman that doubles as a storage box hides clutter while adding to your living room’s aesthetics. A modular sofa that allows you to configure the number of seats based on need saves you from buying new ones in the future. A streamlined design and a murphy bed can make it possible for a home office to turn into a guest room on weekends. These are just some examples on how you can save space and also maximize your money’s worth by embracing a multipurpose mantra.

To summarize, future-proofing is about creating a home that is ready to meet future needs. It’s about combining sustainability with innovation and adaptability. With homes made stronger by cast-in-place concrete and designed with an Asian Tropical architecture style for maximum energy efficiency, Narra Park Residences Avia hopes to make your journey to future-proofing your home easier.
