South Shore’s research found that people are struggling with not having the luxury of a dedicated, managed office. Many feel disorganized in their home workspaces with printers, paper, craft supplies and music all getting jumbled together.

Many people also work with multiple screens, says Basenach, which creates desk space and cable management issues, and they don’t feel they have enough storage solutions.

They also found that many home-workers view traditional office furniture as ugly, cold and too professional looking to suit their home decor.

There is a real demand, says Basenach, for desks and chairs that fit into small spaces like kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms, good storage options to help keep surfaces clear and cables out of sight, and home office furniture that is affordable and appealing, as well as

Working from home in lockdown has no doubt contributed to the increase in popularity of the home office.

The kitchen has traditionally been the heart of the home, but could Covid-19 have flipped that to the home office?

The global pandemic appears to have shaped New Zealanders’ interests in interior design and home renovation – with a huge surge in online searches for home offices, as well as increases in hunts for retro style, wall panelling, conservatories and the new-but-old folksy aesthetic known as cottagecore.

Dropping in popularity, according to an analysis by UK company Roofing Megastore, are subway tiles, floral wallpaper, blue kitchens and macrame.

The build of a home and the design of a building are concepts that are being forced to evolve because of the pandemic.

“Larger corporate businesses are completely changing how they think about their space,” Ersela Kripa, the acting program director in the College of Architecture at Texas Tech, said. “There will have to be a cultural change in how we imagine social interactions because architecture is always so interested in bringing people together and so what does that mean now and bringing people together now has this other layer of safety.”

COVID-19 is leading to a change in the future of architecture and traditional design ideas.

“I think even if there is a vaccine or if we feel safe for indoor spaces, I really
