Our homes have become so much more than just a place we go to after work. It’s become workspaces, classrooms, gyms, and so much more. But when there’s so much activity taking place under one roof, it’s time to look into functionality.
While some have returned to work, many are still staying home, working from home, and adapted to different ways of life. We’ve delved into some interior design trends that are seeing change since the pandemic.
If the past few months have taught us anything, is that our homes need to do more than just look good. They need to have the ability to wear many hats. Today, designers will make use of every space available in the home to ensure functionality and usability.
These spaces include ladder desks that can double as desks, bench seating with hidden storage, an aesthetic wall for Zoom meetings, and so much more.
Home Is Where The Hygiene Is
Hygiene has become the first thing we think about when we leave the home and when we return. New interior design trends will start including materials that are easy to clean and have antibacterial properties.
Gatherings have become smaller and guests no longer just rock up. While the home is generally safer than going out, design trends will start reflecting this. From having a dedicated dining space for the homeowner and guests to investing in larger dining tables. Outside gatherings will start becoming the hub and allow guests to have fresh air while enjoying time together.
Bringing Nature Indoors
Lockdown has definitely made it harder for many people to enjoy being outside and spending time in nature. And this is where it’s time to bring nature inside! Plants can have a massive impact in any room and can attribute to how you feel as well. Spend the morning at the nursery, shopping for the perfect indoor plants.
