Since the recent pandemic hit, there has been a drastic shift in how people view work and travel, as well as basic sanitation practices. Here are a few remodeling ideas that you might consider implementing in your home.
More Hours at Home
Many lifestyle trends are happening in the post-pandemic era, but the majority of them involve spending more hours indoors. Working from home has changed from being a “last resort” option to the only choice. The classroom setting has given way to home-based learning experiences, and even indoor hobbies have taken center stage.
One of the biggest post-pandemic home upgrades are room and deck additions. These projects are geared towards providing more floor space for a home’s occupants. Room additions are great for both home school and office setups, while decks and patios are ideal for at-home relaxation.
Post-pandemic home remodeling projects addressing modern sanitation needs focus mostly on the kitchen, bathroom and home entrances. Kitchen and bathroom remodelers say that a great way to improve indoor sanitation is to update surfaces with materials that have better germ resistance or are simply easier to wipe down. Other changes also include upgrading to no-touch faucets or door and window hardware that minimizes hand contact.
To minimize disruptions caused by other members of the household, remodelers turn to upgrades geared towards privacy and noise reduction. Offices and study areas benefit from soundproof walls and partitions. Bedrooms can be improved by adding curtains for more privacy. Even cosmetic changes such as changing color schemes in different areas of the home can create a sense of separation.
