Home Remodeling Projects for the Post-Pandemic Era

The COVID-19 virus put many people’s renovation plans on hold. As people learn more about proper safety protocols and how to stay safe, they are starting to pick up where they left off. Others are leaning toward remodeling projects that accommodate home-based activities such as working from home and homeschooling.

In today’s post, local interior remodeling contractor DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Schaumburg shares a look at the projects that are on people’s minds for the post-pandemic era.

Home Offices

The recent months have seen a huge spike in the number of people working from home. In addition to purchasing work-from-home essentials such as laptops, headsets and office chairs, many homeowners are looking into creating an office in their homes. Working at the kitchen table or on a couch can become uncomfortable over time, and you probably would rather not have children or pets walking in during videoconferences.

A dedicated home office can make a dramatic difference in your home working environment. Whether a home addition or converted attic room, your home office needs to have ample lighting and nice aesthetics. Your home renovation may also include storage space for office lighting and soundproofing through wall and window insulation.


Mudrooms are where you remove shoes and outerwear, wash your hands and disinfect whatever you’re carrying. Since mudrooms are typically built like service bathrooms, drains and plumbing are very important. They are ideal for households where children and the elderly live, as they can help prevent the spread of germs into the house. When the pandemic eases, mudrooms will still be useful for homeowners with allergies and pets, or when you just don’t want to track wet shoes into the house.

Bidets, Bidet Showers & Smart Toilets

People hoarded toilet paper during the first few weeks of the pandemic. Fortunately, this is not the case today. And while you can easily purchase toilet paper online or at the nearest grocery store, you have to have a backup plan in case either option isn’t available. 

Many homeowners have taken to installing bidets or bidet showers in their bathroom. Smart toilets are becoming more popular, with features like heated seats and touchless flushing. They help reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, and have features that help you save on water and toilet paper.
