Due to the global pandemic, we have finally come to realize that it is not enough to make a house feel like a home – it should be an escape from the outside world.
As a result, people are seeking sanctuary in many ways: cozy spaces and comfortable furniture; natural materials and calming colors; simple details that add texture and adding warmth into their homes.
Here’s a look at the top interior design trends that we have spotted thus far pertaining to the post-Covid world we live in today.
Changing Use of Space
Most American homes are shifting away from the typical formal dining room and, instead, are bringing the focal point of their home straight to the kitchen or living space. In an open-concept floor plan, this is a perfect set-up that allows those who are cooking and cleaning to remain in discussion with their guests who may be sipping on wine at the kitchen island or lounge chair.
In replacement of the dining room, homeowners are transforming their unused space into USEABLE space. Who would’ve thought?! As people spend more time working from home, office spaces have taken a forefront and are becoming one of the most used rooms in the house.
Basements, guest rooms, and other spaces have also been converted into an at-home gym, so people can get their daily exercise in without stepping foot out the house!
Expanding Countertop Surface Area
In addition to changing up the living spaces within the home, rooms are also transitioning into multi-faceted concepts where kids can get homework done, adults can get work done, and everyone can cook on!
Expanding surfacing material, such as the kitchen island countertops, with a larger surface area allows more space for family members to sit down and be productive. Installing durable and long-lasting countertops are crucial for a multi-functional space so no stains or scratches are left behind.

Adding Family-Friendly Materials
Because everyone is home more often, the home is experiencing more traffic than it ever has before. This means: more wear and tear.
Fortunately, we have found an increasing number of homeowners bringing outdoor materials into the home, as they are not only durable, but bring a sense of nature and beauty into the home.
Things like outdoor rugs and refurbished furniture are finding their way indoors and they are here to stay. Living with material that is made to withstand stains, tears and blemishes creates an easier lifestyle for the family and little-to-no maintenance or clean up.
In addition, the digital world has made shopping for these kinds of materials easier than ever with online visual tools so you know exactly what you are getting before making your purchase.
One of the best tools in home design is a kitchen visualizer, which allows you to view what you kitchen would look like with various types of countertops, cabinets, flooring, paint color, furniture and more.
