We can all agree that the “new normal” has meant several significant changes in everyone’s lifestyle. As one of the leading kitchen remodeling companies in the area, we are seeing an interesting trend involving home interiors being reshaped to serve multiple functions. Whether it is for remote work, virtual learning, or other essential activities, we expect the following to be the focus of many remodeling projects in the next few years:
Many fitness centers closed down last year due to restrictions imposed at the height of the coronavirus outbreak. For many who are stuck at home, going outdoors to work out wasn’t an option. This presented an opportunity for them to convert part of their basement or utilize a seldom-used room into their home gym. Even as the state has eased restrictions on these business establishments, expect home gyms to be a popular remodeling idea among homeowners.
Home confinement paved the way for the so-called “botanic boom.” For sure, many of your friends posted on their social media their houseplant hauls or the ongoing progress of their herb or flower gardens. Since going outdoors was limited, it made sense for people to take on a hobby that will help them combat the feeling of loneliness and isolation. Aside from backyard gardens, many homeowners refurbished their underutilized spaces into indoor greeneries complete with replacement windows to let sunlight in.
Remote work isn’t a new concept, but because of the pandemic, it became as ubiquitous as face masks. Separating work life with daily living proved to be a challenge, leading to underused spaces being remodeled to empower homeowners to work from home productively as they would in an office environment. It won’t come as a surprise that post-pandemic homes will feature professionally designed workspaces complete with comfortable furniture, organized storage, and ample amounts of natural and artificial lighting.
