There’s little doubt that the COVID-19 has changed our world and the way we look at our interiors. The pandemic has had a massive impact on our health, the economy, how we work, and the way that we live, especially in the perspective of our own homes, and how it has become our sanctuary and safe place.
If you’re looking to renovate your entire home, or simply refresh a few rooms, such as the kitchen or the bathroom, we have some simple tips to help make your home more adapted to the current circumstances.
A house is no longer just a place to eat, sleep, and relax anymore - it has become a gym, an office, a place for socialising, and we want our homes to better reflect this.
As we see the incorporations of workspaces into bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens, it’s advised to start making smart spaces by decluttering and moving around your existing furniture.
Spend some time seeing how you can minimise the way that you live, and getting rid of things you don’t need - don’t just throw away, if it’s unneeded but in good condition, donate it to a charity shop.
Decluttering may seem overwhelming, especially in places that have been overlooked or neglected for years. Set yourself a plan of action, make a deadline, and begin creating multifunctional spaces that work for you.
The importance of function and form
With the increased amount of time we spend at home now, it is important to spend some time planning your makeover. We now place more importance on our interior spaces, and the function they need to serve.
The style and aesthetic of your home does play a vital role, but the functionality of your interiors is now more important than it once was. Resist the urge to impulse buy, and be smarter with your purchases, especially for essential furnishings and basics.
That doesn’t mean you can’t dress up your newly designed interiors with modern decorative accessories, so visit our store today for more inspiration.
