Working from home 2020
Because of the quarantine, people have been forced to work from home.
Despite already being already a trend among the freelancers smart working was absolutely not a common thing before the Corona virus crisis.
This crisis will prove to companies – that didn’t believe in this model of work – that it’s actually possible to work from home, and to people that working from home can improve well-being and be a really sustainable choice.
We will for sure see a return to dedicated workspaces at home, real functional home offices, more than just temporary corners in a room.
When you spend a lot of time working from home, you need to have a space which is actually separated from the rest of the house, to be more productive but also to have a clear separation between working hours and relaxing/staying at home hours.
Comfortable office furniture, good lighting, efficient storage, will see a rising demand soon in the interior design.
In addition to this, we will design home offices to be suitable for video calls, that’s to say to be as much soundproofing as possible, but also aesthetically pleasant to be showed on a screen.
As highlighted in the point before, we are starting to do some activities at home that require new solutions we did not have before.
As for example, video calls require soundproofing solutions, a trend we already saw a lot last year among workspaces and that will be now part of the home environment as well.
By staying in quarantine for weeks, maybe in large family with kids, we are also all reconsidering the concept of privacy.
This may lead us to reconsider home layout towards a close scheme, instead of the open plans that have been a key trend in interiors in the last years.
