Each room in the home has its purpose. Most recently, we are noticing more and more people are carving out spaces that meet their lifestyle and needs when it comes to design. Here are what types of spaces are trending in the design world.
Wellness has become more relevant, especially with an increased focus on self-care. When it comes to your home, how do we incorporate such a space? It all starts with designating a space in your home (and it doesn’t have to be large) where you can mediate or read a book. Mainly a place where can unwind without any distractions nearby. Some must needed pieces for a wellness zone include a comfy lounge chair or couch, floor cushions, candles, and warm lighting.
A Listening Room
Much like a wellness zone, a listening room is a space that is used to decompress by listening to relaxing music or your favourite musician’s latest album, or even a space to play an instrument that brings you joy. This is a place in your home that can be enjoyed solo or with a group of friends. With the rise of the vinyl record, we are seeing more and more dedicated areas to enjoy music. When designing a music zone or listening room, ensure you have adequate storage space to organize your vinyl's, CDs…etc.
This trend is on the rise. Spaces that incorporate elements of nature and bringing the outside into the home is becoming popular. Often you can leverage a feature wall or have smaller areas in the space just dedicated to greenery and incorporate natural wood pieces. This is a space where you would want to have larger windows to let in the natural light of the outdoors. Readings have claimed that a space like this helps boost your mood and naturally cleans the air in your home.
Focus/Office Area Working from home really has changed the way people live in their space. More and more people like to have a separate space or a closed off area for their office or space to do some quiet work. During the pandemic, people resorted to working off their dining table or in their bedrooms (which should be reserved as a sanctuary not an office). So, now we are looking to have a place in the home that is more conducive to office work or a place where you can focus on some quiet work that keeps out the regular noises around the house.
