Seven Ways On How The Pandemic-Driven Trends Will Define Home Rehab Styles


post-pandemic home rehab styles

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the United States has seen surges in demand for housing.  The rise has been fueled in part by falling mortgage rates.  However, data tells a more complicated story when it comes to rehabbing homes.  Consequently, home design and  style will adapt to change.   Here are the eight post-pandemic home rehab styles to experience:

  1. We’ll want more houses.  The pandemic has spotlighted the importance of having an elastic home, one that can stretch to accommodate everyone.  With  adult children suddenly out of work, elderly parents eluding nursing homes, home styles will stretch to become an office, school or a gym to adopt change.
  2. Working from home has  become the norm.  Those  working at home (happily ditching their neckties, suits, high heels, dry-cleaning bills and time-sucking commutes) are carving out clever ways to make their home office be more than a temporary shelf in the closet. They are designing attractive, productive, Zoom-worthy workspaces that are not just for now, but for years to come.
  3. We’ll reclaim the outdoors. Because the best cure for cabin fever and the safest place to socially distance with friends is the great outdoors, our yards will become the new frontier for home improvement. Whether a backyard, front porch, balcony or rooftop, outdoor spaces will transform into extra furnished rooms, featuring fire pits, kitchens and living areas.
  4. We’ll find prettier storage solutions.  One challenge of working or attending school from home is trying to make it look like you don’t. When your home also becomes an office or classroom, more stuff comes in the door, overwhelming whatever storage you once had. The importance of attractive storage will swell, as people seek to cleverly conceal more stuff.
  5. We’ll close the door on open floor plans. A popular trend in residential design for years, open floor plans often backfire, especially during a pandemic when what those living together crave most is a wall and a door. Going forward, we’ll see more defined spaces that are versatile and offer functional privacy.
  6. We’ll move from green to clean. While the last 10 years have been about living green, the next 10 will be about living clean. Now that we have all become germaphobes, wearing masks like bandits and washing our hands like Lady Macbeth, get ready to see more touchless light switches, sinks and toilets in homes, as well as keyless entries, voice-activated appliances, such as televisions and coffee makers, motion-controlled doors and built-in HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters. We will also seek out finishes based on their cleanability and a new generation of antimicrobial cleaning products proven to kill as well as repel harmful bacteria and viruses.
  7. We’ll ramp up our home improvements. Now that we know when the world closes in, home becomes our everything, we will invest even more in making home better. Because we’re home, we will actually get to all the improvements we’ve put off. We’ll paint that room and update that bath. And we’ll improve with an eye toward making homes serve more people and more purposes for now and for always.

People, particularly those who bought into a lifestyle centered around a busy mall or bar-lined high street, have had to rethink their future living in tiny-boxed,  post-pandemic home rehab styles  among hundreds of other residents living in more tiny boxes.  The crowded elevators and cemented common spaces had all been tradeoffs for living 10 to 15 minutes away from work, play, or preferably both. Traffic was the enemy then. Now it’s an equally insurmountable virus.
