Buying a New Home During the Pandemic- This is What you Need!
December 3, 2021
Being at home in a lockdown during the Pandemic has completely transformed everyday experiences in more ways than we could ever expect or imagine. With a brand-new outlook on our lives and especially our homes, this pandemic has taught us more about the things we need for this new way of life.
For instance, the need to recreate our spaces to relive some of the experiences such as a relaxing spa in a spa-inspired bathroom, a private and functional workspace and more! With many people accepting this new lifestyle, there’s some key features homebuyers are demanding in their new Homes. If you’re in the middle of a house hunt, look for these cool features as it may not only increase your home’s value in the future but also help you enjoy the finest comforts of a smart home.
Bonus or a Flex Room: Having a space that you can customize to your needs is very essential. Use it as creative studio, a kid’s playroom, a man cave or even a yoga studio, the possibilities are literally endless. Having a space already laid out in the floorplan will save you additional reno costs in the future.
Mudrooms: A Mudroom is incredible to have as a designated entryway from the rear of your home. Let the kids (and even the dads) leave their dirty shoes and wet jackets in the Mudroom closets and not bring the outside in!
Spa-Like Bathrooms: We don’t even need to call it a luxury anymore as it is more of a necessity, considering the stress we have in our lives! Spa-inspired bathrooms with floor to ceiling hand-tiled backsplash in the enclosed glass shower cubicle are a must have feature, likely to bump up your home’s value.
Main Floor Powder Rooms: Hell Yes! The one thing I personally hate is taking guests through the house to use the bathrooms. A stylish powder room is the entertainer’s dream come true where you can have accent fixtures and maybe a popping wallpaper to make a statement and give your home a more luxurious look.
Home Office: With so many people having to work from home during the Pandemic, it has somewhat become a new lifestyle for many. A private space dedicated for work where you can take those meetings and answer important calls is a major must have for a lot of new home buyers.
Outdoor Living Space: We all need a healthy dose of Vitamin D, and an outdoor space is perfect when you just want to relax and bask in the sun. Enjoy the long summer evenings with Family BBQs in your own private oasis (with a built-in BBQ gas range), because Why Not?
Upstairs Laundry: A Laundry room upstairs is more efficient and convenient! Having it right next to the rooms saves you all the trips up and down with buckets of laundry.
Dual Vanities: Get ready together! Have your own personal vanity right next to each other in the private ensuite right next to the primary bedroom of the house.
Finished or unfinished Basement Space: Depending on your requirements, having additional space in the basement for a rec room or a guest suite can be so advantageous when you and your family needs the room to grow.
Smart Thermostats: Control your home stats from anywhere with just a fingertip. Smart thermostats let you control the temperature in your home from your phone with an app. Come home to a nice warm and toasty feel at home after the brutal winter chill.
