We’ve all been spending a lot of time at home lately. The question is, how to best utilize space in your home during quarantine? Today’s home environment doesn’t just require space for cooking, dining, and sleeping. We are now trying to find the space for homeschooling our children, working from home, or providing child care for an essential worker. Or in some cases, it’s all of the above.
Therefore, finding the room inside your home to find a work-life balance can be a challenge. Let’s talk about ways best utilize space in your home when it’s needed for multiple purposes.
A large kitchen island can be the solution to a lot of quarantine woos. Many modern kitchen arrangements include a large center island with seating. An island allows you to keep a close eye on the kids doing their schoolwork while you move around the kitchen preparing lunch or a quick snack.
Food storage space has never become more pertinent than now. A large walk-in pantry gives you space to stock up on canned goods, boxed cereals, and other non-perishable essentials. Use your pantry for storing the small kitchen appliances that have now become more useful for cooking quick meals.
Flexible Living Spaces
The days of formal dining and living spaces are over, but these spaces are perfect for the days of quarantine. How do I use my space during the quarantine? Use these first-floor flex spaces for the kid’s playroom, a home office, or a home schoolroom.
Need some time away? In a quarantine, we need to make the most of quiet time at home. Your bedroom should reflect you. Create a quiet sitting area for reading or writing. Add some candles in the bathroom to create a spa-like experience or turn your walk-in closet into the dressing room that you’ve always dreamed of.
The perfect place to escape from it all could be a second-floor loft or finished bonus room. You can transform this space into a room to entertain safely or into a personal home theatre. Did you take up a hobby? Design a space that is perfect for unleashing your creativity. The possibilities are endless.
