The comforts of home have never been so appealing! When uncertainty causes us to feel a little off-balance, our homes provide the security and serenity we need. The Covid-19 derailment will eventually be resolved, but its valuable lessons have influenced home design for the future. Our homes are evolving to provide the perfect solutions for a balanced life. Here are some of our favorite ideas.
Floor Plan Versatility
The intelligence of open concept floorplans has been confirmed by their ability to adapt and be reconfigured. Areas to work, study or exercise will be nestled into our most active rooms. When our needs change, the rooms can revert back to their original plan.
More Storage for Self-Sufficiency
When your home becomes an island it’s critical to have provisions on hand. A walk-in pantry has plenty of space for your latest Costco run while providing an organized space for storage. Drawer allows for easy sorting and accessibility while open shelving keeps everything in sight.
Zoom Meeting Backdrop
When it’s possible to dedicate space for a home office, consider the acoustics, lighting and a sophisticated impression for video conferencing.
Private Outdoor Space
The popularity of outdoor living space will continue to soar and include luxury features like pools, spas and kitchens. Indoor-outdoor connections will always serves to calm, refresh and satisfy us.
While outdoor-to-indoor transitional space has always been desirable, the focus is now on surfaces that are easy to clean and disinfect.
Room for a Workout
You may find that less of a commute to work or school leaves more time for your daily workout. As a self-care reminder set up a space with you favorite equipment to make it happen naturally.
Your Personal Getaway
When togetherness becomes overrated, create an in-home escape to help you get through the day. It doesn’t have to be in the traditional sense of a man cave or she shed. Everyday spaces, like this closet, can become more inviting and luxurious with a little special treatment.
Endless hours within your four walls may result in boredom unless you are looking at something beautiful. There is a renewed interest in design and architecture as we now have more time to thoroughly examine our homes. Finely crafted details will wrap you up in comfort.
