Top Covid-19 Home Renovation Projects

As millions of Americans transitioned from going into the office to working from home, virtual learning, & coping with state regulated stay at home orders many found themselves struggling to find enough space within their home.

We quickly realized our home wasn’t as functional as we thought. The kitchen became a space where we took zoom calls, made all of our meals, & helped our kids with their homework. Our laundry room quickly became a storage room, and the living room transitioned into our home office. We found ourselves frustrated & stressed out due to lack of space.

So, what were some of the top COVID-19 home renovation projects?

Kitchen.  Thanks to COVID-19 your kitchen just might be getting the makeover of your dreams. This is the one home renovation project many are pulling the trigger on this year. The kitchen has always been the focal point of a home, but it hasn’t always been the most functional space. We started to realize this as we spent more time there. Creating an open concept, adding a multifunctional island, & designing a walk in pantry are just some of the design trends that will help turn your kitchen into a functional, stress-free space.

Outdoor Space. With a majority of family vacations canceled due to COVID-19 many found themselves spending a lot of time in their own outdoor space. Your outdoor space quickly  transitioned into your own personal resort. Add a pool, an outdoor bar, and a play area for your kids and it’s almost like you never missed out on your family vacation.

Bathroom.  The bathroom is one of the only spaces in your home that you might be able to squeeze in some alone time. Bathing rituals have taken on a new importance. More & more people are starting to carve out more time to relax & have a spa like experience in their own home. Some of the top bathroom design trends that we are loving is adding a deep soaking tub to your space, a double-vanity, and a stand-alone shower.

Basement. Do you currently use your basement as an extra storage space, gym, and maybe even a laundry room? Have you thought about cleaning it out and transforming it into the finished basement of your dreams? We realized this space has been misused for way too long. A finished basement not only increases the value of your home, but it gives you even more space! Some of the top trends we are loving include an office space, a play-room, and a man cave.

These are just some of the top home renovation projects many have taken on due to COVID-19. Now that you have spent more time living in your home what are some of the top design trends you would add to your space to create a more functional home? Deciding whether to add more storage to your kitchen, create a spa inspired bathroom, or add an office to your finished basement might be one of the hardest decisions you make all year!
