There are abundant theories and projections for what life will be like after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. One of the most obvious ones is that the crisis-induced upsurge in working from home could have a significant and lasting impact on our work-life balance and the way businesses operate. This makes it a shrewd prediction that many more home offices will be built in the near future!
Also, being restricted to their homes has given many people a rather rude awakening on how cramped their living space is. It can certainly feel that way when you are trying to work remotely, with homeschooling or bored children to distract you. Are the walls closing in a bit?
On the plus side, staying home for so long could lead to a stronger family bond, and a desire to create more communal living areas, or to move elderly parents in. This is likely to generate a renewed interest in rear extension ideas to build family rooms or the modern equivalent of ‘granny flats’.
Baby boom or seize the day!
There are other reasons why Warwickshire architects look set to be in demand post-pandemic.
We can’t fail to mention the most obvious reason why you may need architectural services to map out new rooms at your Warwickshire home. The impending baby boom! It is a logical outcome of the confinement and emotional minefield.
However, there’s also a real possibility that some homeowners will simply want to finally realise a long-held dream. This global crisis has taught everyone that life can bring cruel twists and turns. So why wait? If you want a sumptuous master bedroom in your home, or a family games room, go for it!
How to get ahead of the rush
If you are already looking around your property and wishing it was bigger, or even better laid out, at least you have time on your hands to start finding feasible and affordable solutions.
This could include mapping out and researching the best ways to create a rear extension, convert a garage or build upwards into your loft.
It’s also sensible to start sourcing architects in Warwickshire and discussing your options, aims and budget.
That way, while you and your family enjoy going out and about post-pandemic, work can start on building a home you will still want to come back to!
Meanwhile, please Stay Home.
