Quarantine changing way homeowners make remodeling and design decisions

School is starting in most places, and many homeowners are trying to figure out how to handle more people working at home.

For us, the living room has turned into the working room, and the dining room has turned into the school room.

If you’ve caught yourself fantasizing about a dedicated workspace or more storage place for all the supplies you will be housing this semester, you aren’t alone!

Design trends are reflecting what more and more people need during this pandemic, as this article points out.

In addition to the dedicated office space, more homeowners are looking to add spaces to exercise, for their kids to play, or for a more luxurious feel in their bathrooms, the article says.

And with COVID-19 on the top of people’s minds, a revamp to the outdoor space for safely entertaining guests is on many shoppers’ lists, the article says.

In some respects, this is 2020’s version of aging in place. Take this article from the Washington Post, for example.

Homeowners are also factoring into account wheelchair accessibility and planning for space to accommodate aging parents or in-laws, according to the article.

Other changes include lowering kitchen counters, curbless showers, and even adding an elevator in extreme cases, the article says.

Well, if you’ve made it this far, you deserve a treat. And what could be better than seeing how the One Percent live?

Justin and Hailey Bieber just purchased a modest $25.8 million house in Beverly Park, which I’m told is not the same as Beverly Hills.

Anyways, TMZ has pictures (because of course they do), and you have to see the massive pool, huge range hood, movie theatre, and (presumably) master bedroom with a walkout balcony.

Have a great week!
