COVID-19 Has Changed What People Want in a Home

This year has changed so much from the way people work to the way they get their groceries. Now, it’s changing the things people want in a home — and for good reason. 

Since the world shifted, many businesses are now closed with employees working from home. Because of that, home offices are more important than ever before. Adults need a space to go where they can have peace and quiet for conference calls, Zoom meetings or just a heavy workload. According to an article in the Tennessean, people with older homes are combating this problem by changing their formal living rooms into home office space. For people that are buying new homes, they’re actually choosing to make what could be a theater room into a home office. If you need some home office inspiration, Architectural Digest has ideas that can help you create a functional home office for optimal productivity.

That’s not all that’s changing, though.

With people spending more and more time at home, they’re also needing a space to destress. According to the Tennessean article, homeowners are wanting to do that outdoors. They're heading outside for fresh air and to take time off after a long at-home workday. That means outdoor spaces are more important than ever before. Homeowners are choosing to buy space with larger backyards. They want an area to enjoy a glass of wine, host family gatherings or just unwind. In some parts of Middle Tennessee, they’re opting for lakefront views to keep their backyards extra relaxing.
