5 ways might change home design in the future
Thursday Dec 03rd, 2020
Even though we’re still in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, it’s never too early to start looking at how we will move forward. Many things from how we work to where we exercise could all be different after we recover from the virus. Here are five ways in which the pandemic might alter home design in the future.
Spaces that Put Hygiene First
Not surprisingly, one of the changes we’re likely to see is a strong focus on health and hygiene in the home. Design that puts an emphasis on stopping the spread of germs will become a priority as we learn from this experience.
Home Offices Will Be in High Demand
After working at home for an extended period of time, many people are discovering they can do their jobs just as well from home. And with the high cost of commercial space, it’s possible companies may decide that large offices are no longer that necessary. As a result, there could be a dramatic increase in working from home even after the pandemic ends.
Flexible Living Spaces
When your home has to serve as a school, gym, office, and park, you need flexible living solutions. Especially if you’re one of the many urban dwellers who reside in a small space.
Incorporating Technology in the Home
Meetings, big events, and even visits with family are all happening via video conference these days. But many of our homes lack a good spot to accommodate these virtual meetings. A space with good sound and light that is separate from the main living area is already something many people are considering.
Creating A Connection to the Outdoors
Research shows that our physical and mental well-being relies on getting outdoors to enjoy fresh air and sunshine. But now that we’re spending so much time at home, many of us are lacking a connection with nature. And with some homes not having any outdoor space, incorporating natural elements is more important than ever.
