Over the past year our homes have become so much more, serving as classrooms, offices, and gyms. We have changed our daily routines dramatically, and some of these new ways of doing things are set to become part of normal life moving forward. Now is the perfect time to update your home interior to best suit our new lifestyles.
Long topping the wish list for any contemporary home, the open floor plan may have finally lost some of its luster. Anyone who has had to manage an important business call in the same area where their spouse and kids are also working may have a whole new appreciation for the concept of private spaces. Many people are now looking to divide up or close off some of those wide open areas.
With many employers open to remote work even post-pandemic, homebuyers are making dedicated office space more of a priority so your remodel or addition will pay off even if you eventually sell. Instead of having everyone competing for space at the dining table for meals, Zoom calls, and homework, giving family members a dedicated space to work is more important than ever. Whether that’s a separate office or just a cozy nook tucked into another room it’s easy to design a multi-functional space that works for your family.
Pandemic life has reminded us why form should follow function in your home’s layout. A remodel can help you create flexible and comfortable spaces for all your home’s functions: living, entertaining, and working.
