Read on to learn more about what people are doing these days in interior design.
The Pandemic Changed How Many See Their Homes
With many people working from home, many kids learning from home, and many entertainment choices being only in the home, lots of families were there for long stretches versus just at night and the weekends. So instead of an after-work or after-school haven, the living space became the everything space. Interior design started to reflect that.
- Technology. With a whole family using the internet in ways they hadn’t before, some WiFi systems got overly taxed, leading people to look for technology solutions to ensure the internet did its thing. Many added whole-home solutions to spread and boost the signal.
- Personal space. Distinct personal areas for work and learning became a must-have. Some people turned their bay window into a convenient nook for a child by adding external curtains to create a small room. Others added room-dividing vertical solutions like Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, to create a clear demarcation when needed and be fully open when not needed.
- Decorations. Being at home had many people considering the style and décor around them. Some people commissioned beautiful wall murals while others added bold new paint or textiles. Still others brought in elements that reminded them of travel, like accessories from another country or artwork that evoked a sense of place.
- Cleanable materials. Even before the pandemic, there was a push to find antibacterial and easy-clean materials for the home. This past year only increased that. Washable floor coverings became very popular. Great choices for other indoor items, such as window fashions, include natural fibers such as bamboo and oak, which are inherently antibacterial and can actually prevent bacteria from growing. If you’re wanting new natural window treatments to increase the antibacterial components in your home, check out Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades.
