Today let’s look at a Trending Concept that is quite new. For the past fifteen to twenty years the over-riding concept that is very popular is the Open Concept layout in a new home. This is where the view from the kitchen is unobstructed on into the dining room and living room. The idea is that it creates a feel where the family is all together.
Many factors are now causing families to re-think basic design tenants within their new home. COVID has had a huge impact on how families conduct their daily routine. Mom and Dad are working at home far more than in the past and honestly, they see this as a trend that is going to continue. The majority of the kids are going to school virtually via Zoom. It was only a short time ago when none of us even knew what Zoom was and now it is in our lives all the time.
Back to home design! The Open Concept has a new friend and it is called The Separate area; that space set aside where the home office can be along with a place set aside for the kids to do their school work.
This new space is not part of the Open Concept, it is a new Trending concept to have a separate space somewhat removed from the entire family where a quite space is needed both for mom and dad along with The Kids.
