Coronavirus pandemic has had an effect on almost every industry, including homes. With so many people being forced to work from home, more and more people are focusing on nesting.
Given people's increased attachment to their living spaces, we can't help but wonder about what's on the horizon for home design post-COVID-19.
FUNCTIONALITY ABOVE EVERYTHING
The foyer serves as a transition between the outside world and the interior of your house. And now, more than ever, cleanliness is important. As soon as you walk in, you'll need somewhere to put your keys, bags, umbrella, or coat.
The living room has suddenly become grand central. We've been rearranging the living room to make more spaces within. There might also be a game or snack table in addition to the coffee table. The couch can be stuffed with pillows to make it more convenient to watch a movie in the middle of the day. The living room has reclaimed its place in the spotlight.
People are using their kitchens more these days, so it needs to be more prepared. Space has become even more important as homeowners stock up on bulk groceries.
Our philosophy as a design firm is based on recycling, upcycling, and exploring small businesses. It's a win-win situation because it helps local businesses while still providing the homeowner with instant satisfaction.
Consumers are now craving colors that instill a sense of reassurance and comfort as a result of the pandemic, which understandably has caused unrest, grief, and anxiety.
AN EFFICIENT OFFICE SPACE
There is a distinct lack of proper working space in most homes. For home-based learning, even children need a proper study table. Many of our clients are having their rooms/homes redone to include home offices.
LITTLE OF NATURE
Plants have a calming effect on our nerves. Make sure to incorporate potted plants into your home, whether on the balcony or along the walls. Start with the plants that are simple to grow.
When natural lighting is clearly the best way to boost your energy levels, you can also use cove lighting for a relaxing effect or a feature wall under track lights for a little drama.
