The outbreak of the global pandemic and a country-wide lockdown has shaken our everyday lifestyle. It has affected and changed our ways of living and perceiving spaces. Due to the unprecedented restrictions, people are developing techniques to adapt to their new lifestyle characterised by social isolation, self-quarantine, and working from home. But the two things that are now a must in a home are dedicated spaces for work and recreation in the house.
With the post-COVID era transitions, developers have stepped up their architecture and home designs, realising the need to accommodate and integrate these global changes and offer you know homes that are luxurious yet safe and happy!
Here are some points which we need to consider while designing a home post-COVID-19:
- Ensuring Light And Ventilation:
Lighting and ventilation need to be the primary determinants in designing future homes, with adequate cross-ventilation to ensure that your house remains a healthy place.
- Creating a mudroom at the entrance:
It is a great idea to create a small chamber at the entrance for washing your hands, sanitising, removing your mask, shoes, and dirty clothes before entering your personal space during these times.
Half of the global population has adapted to working from home. A separate workspace is necessary to maximise productivity while doing so, among many homely informal distractions and surroundings. Home office, or at least a corner in the room, is essential for this new work culture. Here are a few points which we need to consider while designing our workspace:
1) Aesthetic relaxing space:
Ideally, the environment in which we spend a lot of time working should be conducive to relaxation with good lighting, ventilation, and plenty of greenery. Keep some green pots near your working area.
2) Use of disinfecting materials:
Our workspace must include antimicrobial surfaces to prevent the growth of bacteria and viruses. It will make them cleaner and hygienic, ensuring the safety of everyone around.
As viruses and bacteria are on the rise, our homes need to be smart, with contactless doors and automated surfaces. It reduces the risk of coming in contact with any outside person, ensuring the safety of everyone.
When everyone is confined to their homes, homes should have their entertainment zones. It could be done by including spaces where the family can come together and spend quality time, such as terrace gardens, huge balconies, and sitting corners.
- Terrace Gardens And Balconies:
With more time spent indoors, spending time in open spaces can aid us in feeling rejuvenated and relaxed and help us spend quality time together with family.
