The pandemic has swept through the world and kept many of us tied down in our homes and unable to leave, which led us to discover necessary home changes that we had not thought of before. Due to the pandemic and the lock-down, homeowners have now started looking to add more space, upgrade existing rooms and install new improvements to enhance their lifestyle. Below are the top new home additions in Edmonton for 2022.
1. Multifunctional Rooms
Working from home used to be a luxury before the pandemic and was not a necessity for a lot of families. However, during the lock-down, employees were required to work from home, and students had to complete their studies at home as well. This enabled many people to continue working from home and discover the benefits of online schooling. Whether you’re working from home or your kids are studying at home, you will need to make sure that you have enough space and privacy for the both of you. Some homeowners have remodelled their garage space to include an office space with a desk, work lighting and and storage. Others have remodelled their living room and installed a soundproof room divider to make more workspace available. Rather than having to battle over the same study or workspace, you can invest in minor renovations within your existing space. Not all homes can accommodate separate rooms for an office, a bedroom and a kids’ learning room, which is why in 2022, you should consider multifunctional rooms.
2. Outdoor Space
Not being able to leave the house for days on end was very constraining and made everyone feel imprisoned in their own home. Since social distancing in outdoor spaces was not lifted until early 2022, homeowners began exploring how to utilize their outdoor spaces as efficiently as possible. Sitting out on the deck or the patio in the summer and spring is a breeze, but what can you do to enjoy the outdoors during Edmonton’s cold winter months? Building an enclosed patio or sunroom is one of the most popular ways to enjoy the outdoors without being exposed to the cold weather. You can have an entire outdoor seating area where you can open the windows, enjoy the cool summer breeze, cozy up on the couch with a hot cup of tea, and enjoy the snow falling gently on the window sill. An enclosed outdoor space is the best way for you to be outside without leaving the house.
The longer we spent time in our homes, the more we realized that our homes weren’t well equipped for people with limited mobility. Homeowners are now starting to slowly renovate their homes to make it easier for people with limited dexterity to access the house easily. You can start by adding grab bars in your bathroom to make it more accessible or installing a porch ramp to make it easier to enter and exit your home. Having an accessible home will always be a beneficial investment.
