Throughout the last 2 years “working from home” has unfortunately been the case for most of us, because of this more people have created in-home work spaces (study rooms/offices) not just for themselves but as well as their children who had to learn from home as well. As working from home gains acceptance and more roles are fulfilled in remote settings, the fundamental principles of workplace design will still apply — just in a residential context.

Multi-Use Space

As we head into 2022 & summer, more design ideas come into play. Obviously, we have seen in 2020/2021 home offices being built but many more families wish to have their home include a multi-use space that can work as an office, gym, remote learning space, or recreational area. This comes in line with families wishing to bring more and more pursuits into the home.

Solar Orientation

Another trend that has arisen from COVID is a bigger focus on getting better solar orientation. Families are more focused on how to build the home for winter sun, the summer sun, and their general orientation. This trend is proving great for customers, as having the right orientation can save money on power and makes the house more pleasant to live in.

Here are some of the displays we have at Home Innovations Display Centre that can help you design your home going into 2022.
