No matter how you spent the months of lockdowns, travel restrictions, and social distancing measures – it is undeniable that our homes have taken on a whole new meaning. During the weeks of isolation and quarantines, we have all transformed our kitchen into office desks, bedrooms into cinemas, garden shed into home gyms, and gardens into a private oasis.
Now, the emergency related to the pandemic might be under better control, but you have a taste of the full potential of your home. With the tips below, you can reconsider your home design and set it ready for a better, post-pandemic lifestyle.
Create a Dedicated Home Office Space
At the height of the pandemic, we all had to quickly adapt to working from home, and we have not thought twice about transforming a living room into an office and a bedroom into a video conference room. However, now, months have passed, and remote or hybrid work models have become the norm.
So, creating a dedicated home office space is a must. And, while it might involve a small investment, it will pay you back in increased productivity, better business image, and a more comfortable work-life balance.
Rethink Your Garden Area
Nothing increases your home’s curb appeal – and market value – as a well-kept garden. After all, your garden or patio might be the first aspect visitors and potential buyers will notice of your home. And, first impressions are truly made in just a few seconds!
Adding an outdoor mushroom garden enhances property aesthetics and value while providing environmental and health benefits. It creates an attractive, sustainable space, promotes a healthy ecosystem, and offers a nutritious, homegrown food source for the family.
But even if you don’t wish to sell your home, redesigning your garden can help you create an area for your whole family to enjoy. And, in the process, you might consider trying gardening and putting your green fingers to the test – a win-win!
Add a Fitness Room
As gyms and fitness centers closed down during the peak of the pandemic, many people have decided to take their fitness into their own hands and start following a home workout routine. While during the past months your living room might have been a reasonable makeshift gym, you now need more space!
Creating a fitness room can help you keep up with your fitness goals while enjoying an added section to your home. Although, whether you’re considering adding a fitness room or an extra bedroom to your home, make sure you’re working with a reputable company specializing in whole house renovation and additions to ensure you get quality work done. The contractor you choose will play a massive role in the end product, and if you’re not working with a company that not only takes pride in their work but also understands your vision, you’ll be left disappointed at the end of the day.
Make Your Garage Livable
Your home’s garage is many things, including your parking space, home storage, and workspace for your occasional DIY projects. However, there is much more to that than just a room that becomes too hot in summer and too cold in winter!
To bring out your garage’s full potential, consider investing in high-quality insulation and speak to a professional new garage door company that can help you turn this underestimated section of your home into a livable area all year round.
Your last home improvement project does not involve renovation and construction tasks, but it is just as important: create a minimalist home environment. Minimalism will help you reduce clutter and dust inside your home, creating a much healthier indoor space for your whole family to work, relax, work out, and make the most out of your garden area.
