More than six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, life still looks a lot like it did in March. Many of us continue to work remotely, and spend time with family and friends outdoors. In addition, parents and children are now preparing to start another year of distance learning. Some gyms, stores and restaurants are open, but we’re still primarily exercising, shopping and cooking at home. And many of us are realizing that our homes don’t provide the space or functionality we need for this new normal.
So why not make your home work better for you? Here are a few ways that homeowners are remodeling their spaces to fit their needs in the pandemic – and beyond. Contact The Chuba Company to discuss your needs and vision.
Distance Learning and Remote Work
If you’re going to be working from home into the new year, or you have a child who will be attending school from home even part time, you need a space that is conducive to learning, focus and efficiency. A dedicated home office with good lighting, air flow, and soundproofing will make both working and learning more productive. Don’t have enough space? Consider an addition!
Exercising and Relaxation
Although gyms have mostly reopened, many people are still working out at home. Having the space and equipment to stay active and healthy is important for both physical and mental health, and will be essential once winter arrives and outdoor fitness becomes more difficult. With some creative planning, you can fit a workout space into almost any corner of your home – or even the garage.
Maybe you gave up on sourdough bread months ago, but you’re still cooking almost every meal at home. Get the space, storage and setup that will make meal prep and cleanup easier. If you’re wary about the expense, visit our blog post on making kitchen remodels more affordable.
Our backyards have become some of the only places we can see friends and family, celebrate milestones, or simply relax. Make your outdoor space more versatile so you can use it throughout the fall. Consider turning your backyard into a true retreat by adding a deck or porch, fire pit, lighting, cozy seating and more.
