Life changed drastically for a broad section of the population when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. These changes shifted some of the ways that we operate when designing our living spaces. More people rely upon a home working space than ever before. The way we work is different now and there are no signs that this shift will let up any time soon. A popular situation is hybrid work, which can bring the stresses of commuting alongside the need for an office space within your home.
The increase in need for working areas of the home also happens to coincide with a real estate boom. Availability of new homes is low and prices are up. So if you require more square footage and wish to stay at your current location, creativity reigns supreme. At Paisley House in Houston, TX, we can help you to restructure your existing condo space to allow for more functionality by bringing your bed into the great room. Maximize the amount of efficient space by moving the communal space to a more intimate bedroom location. If the pandemic has shown you that you do not fully utilize your great room, put it to use!
Rethink The Purpose Of Each Room
Homeowners and renters may take the name of a room as the gospel truth. But there is no true rule as to which area of your living space is devoted to which task. Be more creative with your use of rooms in order to get a living experience that suits your needs.
If you live in an urban environment, there is rarely space to spare. Effective spatial management can help you to be able to do everything you want within a more confined area.
An Urban Texas Requires City Design
Here in Houston, we live in one of the largest cities in the United States. Still, there is a general hesitancy to embrace how urban our environment truly is. Since we are not as geographically constrained as some of the other metropolitan areas, we have a lower rate of density. That has been changing over the last few decades, however, and people are flooding the city center. Walkability has been improving as young professionals are ditching the cars and the long commutes.
Embrace this new Texas by moving your dedicated social space to one of your current bedrooms. This city has so much to offer that you may meet your friends and family at parks or coffeeshops. Work can require a dedicated space, and a specific office area may be more necessary for your space.
