The COVID-19 crisis has compelled individuals and families to stay indoors. If anything, it has underscored the value of a home. The pandemic has made abundantly clear that your house must be the safest and most comfortable place to stay. That’s why many homeowners have pursued home improvement projects amidst the pandemic.
But as we’re gradually going back to normalcy with lighter pandemic restrictions, there is yet no sign of stopping for home improvement projects. Some homeowners will continue to renovate their houses in the new normal. They hope to boost their residential property’s overall aesthetics and functionality.
As we start a new year, consider undertaking a house renovation project. If you’re clueless about what interior designs to incorporate into your house, here are 2022 house renovation trends to consider:
1. Home Office
At the onset of the pandemic, many individuals have resorted to working from home (WFH). When asked if they wanted to go back to the office, a vast majority prefer to work remotely for good. It appears that the remote work setup will determine the future of our business landscape. If you haven’t set up your home office yet, it’s about time to do so this year. As such, consider remodeling your house. First, look for an ideal room or dedicated space conducive to working. Plus, invest in work devices, tools, and supplies and install them in your home office.
2. Dedicated Study Area
Many children have been out of the classrooms since the COVID-19 outbreak. In fact, about 117 million students worldwide have not gone back to school. Even if they do so, online education will eventually take ground in our society. Why? Many families and mentors have seen the value and efficacy of digital learning. As such, consider having a study room for your children. You’ll probably have a dedicated study area in the bedrooms. But if not, have a separate room exclusively for learning and studying.
3. Side-Hustle Space
There’s no denying the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 crisis. But if anything, the pandemic has taught individuals and families to pursue side hustles at home. Some have even gone as far as doing business online while in the comfort of their homes. That said, it’s best to renovate a space somewhere in your house, where you and your kids can get creative and sell products for money. Of course, it depends on what type of mini-business you’d like to launch. Just make sure that your space is ideal for craftsmanship.
4. House Gym
The COVID-19 crisis has led a lot of people to a sedentary lifestyle. As such, it has compromised the health and well-being of people. But thanks to resiliency and resourcefulness, many individuals have found ways and means to stay physically active. In fact, the pandemic has paved the way for the rise of house gyms. If you haven’t set up yours yet, consider renovating a part of your house for exercising. While at it, invest in workout tools and equipment.
5. Smart Home
It’s no secret how the pandemic has made individuals and families bored at home. Yes, they most likely spend their time hooked on their phones while surfing the internet. But thanks to digital tools and technologies, many families can now install smart home devices. They can boost their home entertainment and provide the utmost convenience to the whole household. As such, check your house interior and see what appliances and electronic devices to acquire. From there, invest in advanced equipment and turn your house into a smart home.
6. Entertainment Hub
When it comes to surviving at home, entertainment is the key. That’s why many families have remodeled their houses and spruced up their home entertainment. If you haven’t done so yet, consider having an entertainment hub on your residential property. There are a handful of ways to do so. For one, you can resort to basement finishing and remodeling. From there, you can transform your basement into a mini-bar, a movie theater, or an entertainment hub.
7. Green Home
There’s a push for sustainability in this time and age. Not only does sustainability apply to businesses, but it works for residential properties as well. As such, many families have started ‘going green’ at home. For this reason, you might want to consider doing the same as well. This renovation type doesn’t entail installing indoor plants inside your house. It can go as far as using organic materials, installing solar panels, and investing in energy-efficient equipment and appliances.
