3 Interesting ways lock down has changed our homes

3 Interesting ways lock down has changed our homes

The coronavirus lockdown changed the way we live our lives dramatically, and perhaps affected the way we live at home most of all. We take a look at 3 ways the lockdown has changed our lifestyles.

Home offices are more important than ever

With most of the country working from home, having a quiet space away from distractions has become a precious commodity. As many of us enjoyed the experience of remote working, we’re starting to transform spare bedrooms into permanent home offices with built-in desk and storage. Indeed, at Custom Made, we’ve noticed enquiries about office furniture are more popular than ever. 

Outside space has never been so important 

With strict travel restrictions in place during the height of lockdown, we couldn’t get out and about as much as we would have liked or get away from the stress of it all with a holiday. Suddenly, as we turned to our outside space for a sense of escapism, we realised just how important our gardens are. Even small areas, such as courtyards and balconies, have seen a lot of use over the past few months and provide a great spot for al-fresco dining or relaxing with a good book. 

Re-thinking home organisation 

Space has never been more important than it was during lockdown and so we had to seriously re-think how we use our home, whether that was to make the most of our living areas or improving the way our bedroom is organised. One of the ways many people overcame this was to sort out their home’s storage with made to measure furniture that helps free up space. As custom made furniture is designed to the unique specifications of your home, it makes the most of every nook and cranny to free up more space than stand-alone furniture ever could. 

Custom Made Furniture builds bespoke fitted furniture that perfectly reflects your lifestyle and needs, whether that’s built-in wardrobes, practical home offices or living room storage.
