The speedy transmission of the global crises has led many in the design and architecture community, to re-evaluate and take note of what it might mean to design and strategize for a world that will surely never be quite the same again, especially when it comes to home interiors. This is because the pandemic has already been redesigning our ideas of home to underscore the prime aspects of hygiene and wellness coupled with an efficient work/life balance.

Highlight on important facets

The homes in the post-COVID world have to function as they have never before. Considerate and thoughtful plans, quality of craft, and multifunctional spaces are the forerunners of a novel era in design. 

This multi-functionality will probably outspread to outdoor spaces, too. In the past couple of months, there has been a massive movement towards semi-private exterior spaces, especially in metropolitan cities, where-in this is slowly becoming a widespread norm. In this new pandemic era, probable home buyers are going to be scouting for more of those amenity spaces because they enable you to socialize with a more organized and controlled group, thus allowing you to adhere to social distancing norms.

The modern-day futuristic homes designed for the post-COVID consumers will be equipped with mudrooms being armed with a bathroom, shower, and dryer in order to enable complete desensitization the moment one enters the house. Back entrances which were not given much precedence as a design element is all set to grow moving forward. 

Wellness qualities
Indeed, the notion of a discrete barrier between the external and internal may essentially alter the way we approach entering our own and other people's homes too. Interior designers are also focused on designing a more sterile-looking environment to cater to the modern-day wary consumer.

The fascination with the hearth aesthetics amalgamated with health will endure predominating in the new era.

Home Office
With work from home the new mantra during the pandemic times, the home office trend which had lost its charm seems to be returning back. With the very uncertainty of these times, there has been an amplified demand in flexible-spaces that can be modified for diverse requirements.

Besides being used for home offices, these spaces can also be utilized for homeschooling which is also the need-of-the-hour during unpredictable times such as these. Small-size apartments that can't essentially contain a built-in office or home-schooling station, can opt for larger bedrooms, which can be doubled up.

The pandemic is surely making us do the things that needed to be done a long time ago. Hence, while looking forward from this time of great ambiguity, let's find hope in the leeway of starting fresh with well-designed homes that speak volumes of a renewed gratefulness for well-being, thus making homes a better place to live in.
