What do you think of our renovations?

Home Technology Montreal is now three years old and I thought it time to do a little redecorating. I didn’t want to do a complete rebuild but, I did want a cleaner more up to date look.

What do you think of the result? I plan to continue tweaking a bit over the next few days but the overall style is there. Do you like the new look? Please let me know in the comments section. Are there some things I can add to make your visit more productive and enjoyable.

IMG_0605For those of you who like the tech bits; I tried a couple of so called modern themes but couldn’t get the look or performance I was looking for. So I went back to my original Canvas Theme from WooThemes and was able to get exactly what I was looking for. The latest version has all the new whistles and bells and is highly customizable so even rank amateurs like me can produce good results. I have seen some spectacular sites created by professionals¬†with this theme . Most importantly Canvas is responsive which means the¬†design will scale to fit on all browser widths/resolutions and on all mobile devices. I also wanted to bring added value in the form of the slider at the top of the Home page which highlights the 5 most recent product reviews. I hope you like it. I hunted high and low for the perfect application to accomplish this. I wanted something that was reliable, look good, load fast and also work on Mobile devices. SlideDeck 2 was the only slider app I could find that did the job.

Thanks to all of you who have been following Home Technology Montreal for the past three years. I home you will enjoy our new look, continue to come back and please tell your friends about us. You will see links to share via your favourite social media, please use them

    My IE 11 browser didn’t like some of the links I clicked on, but all in all I like the cleaner look so far.
