The confinement that is currently being experienced all around the world due to Covid 19, has drastically changed the way of living of the human being.
Having to get used to or adapt to this new way of living is leading humanity to forcibly remain at home. Therefore, it is urgent to make changes in the house, so that it meets the new expectations of each family.
This is why at Dream Home Builders and Remodelers we want to share with you some tips that could help you adapt your home to the new reality.
4 easy steps to adapt your home to the new normal
In other times, our homes were the place to meet when we returned from work, school, and from sharing with friends. Now, a house must function as an office, school, game room, living room, exercise area, etc. We no longer expect for members of the family to come back in the evening since we’re all staying at home all day long. So, consider the following steps when adapting your home to the new way of living:
- What we have and what we need: after cleaning, ordering, and observing each space in the house, establish what you have, what you can eliminate, and what you need to make everyone’s stay more pleasant and productive.
- Open some spaces to maximize movement from one side to another: besides requiring some well-defined spaces, our houses also require that the busiest spaces and rooms be clear enough so that interaction is comfortable and pleasant. For example, the kitchen, the living room, and the garden are the most common areas where we should move freely.
- Leave the main changes in the hands of the experts: counting on experienced people, like those who belong to a company dedicated to the field, translates into minimizing expenses, maintaining the integral design of the house and making better use of the space, and ultimately, ensuring the safe development of the project.
- Create delimited spaces for specific activities: it is imperative to remodel in order to set up an office to be able to work from home. A place with comfortable furniture and some privacy would be perfect for telework.
It really does not matter if the house is small or big. What you have to look for is to adapt it to new needs, which implies delimiting some spaces and opening others depending on the use that each of them is going to have. Here the concept “less is more” applies perfectly.
So it is about buying comfortable, durable, and functional furniture, installing good light where it is necessary, removing everything that takes up space unnecessarily, and, also, using folding desks, extendable tables, floating shelves, among others.
