The pandemic has greatly changed our reality by making us spend more time in our homes. Do you think decoration can make a difference in the post-pandemic era?
This year has been very atypical in many ways. As soon as we started 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic had already started, turning our routines literally upside down.
We went from one moment to another forced to stay at home by a microscopic enemy, without being able to socialize, embrace, walk and do other things so natural and commonplace to the human being.
For some, staying at home was torture, for others, not a problem.
But surely if your home is a cozy space, with “your face”, spending quarantine at home was very easy!
Decoration is a powerful transforming agent, not only in the image of the space but in the sensory and emotional reflexes and that is what we will talk about today, how it can help after the pandemic.
The impact of the pandemic on the issue of “being at home”
Being in a pleasant environment directly impacts you. It may not seem at first glance, but we are more productive and cheerful in a cool environment.
The fact that we are spending more time at home than usual can make a person bored, stressed, or anxious. However, for those who value their home and see it as a personal and welcoming space, staying at home is a source for pleasure.
From one moment to another, we had to do everything at home: work, exercise, attend classes, buy, etc.
Thus, the decoration with the aim of humanizing the space so that it meets the fundamental but also emotional and affective needs of human beings has become a premise.
Due to a busy life, many had never realized that their homes are large dormitories, where they wake up, go to work and return only at night. The space is lived in its fullness only on weekends and sometimes, not even on these occasions.
The pandemic has led to changes in the way people perceive their homes. We will talk about these changes below.
The pandemic and its impulses of changes in the decoration
Those who were not much of a fan of staying in your residence can come out of this crisis with the desire to move and give up their homes, change the decor, precisely because they have spent so much time confined.
During quarantine, many began to observe more attentively and deeply the place where they live and were perceiving aesthetic and practical needs, besides wanting to feel pleasure in the space they live in.
Even unintentionally, the pandemic caused some impacts and changes in the decoration field.
After all, we don’t know how long this will last and this is causing people to invest in decorating their homes.
The pandemic established the Home Office as practically mandatory, and many began to invest in a work-at-home space, looking for functional furniture and that makes the work pleasurable and productive.
The positive impact on decorative changes has led people to see new ways to enjoy their home, paying more attention to the spaces due to prolonged stay at home.
Details before unnoticed began to make all the difference. And this has made people more likely to make changes to the decor in order to improve their relationship with the home they live in.
The greatest legacy of the pandemic is perhaps this, we value the company of family and friends more, and face our homes as extensions of who we are, since we put our personal “marks” when we choose one style or another of decoration.
Interior design will be more valued after this period we live in, so how about giving that new “face” to your home? So call anyone who understands the subject, A Decor Influencer will help you on this mission!
