An inspiring home office

If you’ve been working from the kitchen table all this time, you’ve probably come to realize that you need a home office. Home office designs are one of the most popular projects after the first COVID wave. Homeowners tend to choose a hands-on approach to the home office, which is a good idea if you already have a spare room or a free nook you can convert. However, extension and full conversions projects such as basement and loft will require professionals on site. Ideally, the perfect home office combines practical and personal elements. You want smart storage solutions and ergonomic furniture. But you should also consider mood-boosting decor with a vibrant accent wall and some personal touches, such as family portraits. Also, are you looking for additional home office supplies, stationery, and other office furniture? Consider different options for your supplies that will help you stay organized, chic, and comfortable to help you achieve the look that you want. 

A motivating gym studio

If you’ve been working out on your yoga mat inside the lounge, now’s the time to fit a home gym design into your property. Home exercising studios rank high on the list of essential home improvement projects in a post-COVID world. It’s a project that relies essentially on professional designers and architects who can help you add value to the property with a new functional room. When you introduce an area dedicated to workouts, you can invest in quality equipment without worrying about cluttering other rooms in your home! Needless to say, a self-contained studio to exercise can help you stay active easily. How about squeezing in some reps before dinner or hitting the treadmill before your first Zoom meeting? 

A self-contained playroom

Are kids back to school? As long as the coronavirus remains a risk, it’s fair to say that kids will experience further periods of digital learning. There’s nothing wrong with learning from home via an online interface. But that means that your kids need a room where they can learn and play. Is the bedroom not suitable? A lot of parents have been starting playroom projects to keep toys and other kits together. A playroom keeps the house tidy and encourages organization and cooperation between children. Besides, it is a creative space that can be efficiently designed and decorated by parents with the help of their children! 

Swimming Pool

The final thing that we’re going to be talking about is a great addition to your home, especially for the summer months. If you have always dreamed of having a pool in your home, now is the time to do it. You can look into a whole range of types of pool, ensuring that you get the one that you want. For example, you can look at a fibreglass plunge pool, or another type depending on the space that you have available. Speak to an expert today to get an accurate idea of how much this is going to cost, and how long it will take to complete. 

Home office, home gym, or home playroom, which one will be your favorite improvement project this year? Depending on your layout, both the office and the playroom can be a DIY project. However, you can reach out to a team of expert designers and builders at any stage for best results. We don’t recommend tackling your gym studio alone, though.
