As we stand at the precipice of another potential national lockdown, we reflect on how our homes have changed this year and which of these changes are here to stay post-pandemic.
Here, we delve into what this new chapter might hold and share our advice on how best to adapt.
1. ‘Broken’ not ‘open’ plan
2. A place to be alone

Many of our clients are also asking for seating areas in their bedrooms. This gives them a much deserved retreat away from the sometimes manic nature in the rest of the house. In smaller rooms, even a simple armchair can do the trick.
3. Loving not listing
A nation of DIY-doers

Decorating during the pandemic has been a challenge to say the least thanks to huge delays in manufacturing and a backlog on trades.
That, combined with a lack of weekend plans has meant that we’ve been painting our walls rather than the town.
But as a nation we’ve learnt that DIY isn’t quite as painful as we thought - and we’ve all felt the smug satisfaction of completing an upcycling project for next to nothing!
We believe, and hope this is a trend that remains beyond this year. By realising that we can upcycle what we already have to fit our needs, we’ll have a hugely positive impact on the environment.
