Staying at home might be driving all of us a little crazy right now, but there’s always a way to make things work! Apart from benefitting from home offices and more outdoor space, what are some recent home additions that people are looking for?
Online shopping can be quite addictive, and you might be finding that parcels are piling up at your front door or in the hallway. It may be better to keep food deliveries and anything coming in from the outside world separate from commonly used areas. The best option is to keep this storage area close to the entrance so that you can limit the spread of germs and also create some order as those packages build up!
Just like how it’s helpful to make a distinction between work and sleep areas, having separate work and play areas are also great if you struggle to unwind at the end of the day. Having one centralized area for relaxation is also a great way to bring the family together into a shared area and get in some quality time together. If you have children at home, creating these boundaries can also help solidify a routine for the youngsters.
Unless you’re limited to one bathroom at home, now more than ever it makes the most sense to separate guest and personal usage of these spaces. If it’s unavoidable to have certain people over, keep in mind that this works best if you and the rest of your household also opt for personal bathrooms instead of the designated ‘guest powder room.”
