Novel Corona Virus or Covid-19 has made a paradigm shift in the way we live. Starting its journey from China, the virus has traveled throughout the world at a lightning speed and caused catastrophic consequences not limited to only health hazards. We’re now trapped into our homes just like some animals are locked in the zoo. Whether or not we like it, we’re now living a different life.
Just like the world is not aware of its birthdate, we’ve no idea about its ‘date of departure’ either. Therefore, we need to follow the safety guidelines to safeguard ourselves and our loved ones from the claws of the corona.
With Covid-19 causing death and destabilizing the economy, it is surely going to change the interior design trends. Here is how a microscopic element like Covid-19 is going to induce both macro and micro changes in the way we decorate our interior. :
Covid-19 has scared us to such a point that we panic a lot while going out shopping even grocery items. These are the most basic necessities that we cannot do without. The best way out of the situation is to grow vegetables at home. Home gardening is already popular with the homeowners and soon going to dominate the interior space.
Small apartment owners can grow plants on their terrace. You can also make clever use of your balcony space to grow plants in small pots. Grow aromatic and seasonal herbs such as, basil, rosemary, mint etc in tiny pots and place them on the countertop or above the sink in your kitchen.
Most people grow flower plants in their balcony or on the terrace. However, you can grow almost anything from vegetables to a variety of fruits on your terrace or in the balcony garden. It will ensure a fresh supply of organic vegetables anytime you need them. A home garden also enlivens the interior space and works as a stress buster.
Lockdown is forcing us to spend more time together. That being a good idea to stay closer than ever, you just need to fit another aspect into your consideration and it’s all about creating space illusion. The best way to do this is to get more loft storages for clothes and other essentials.
Just imagine the scenario of clothes hovering around here and there, toys scattered all over the floor and smashed under feet, bulky luggage that you don’t need for a while bulging from a corner. In a word, you are likely to find your home at sixes and sevens as there is not enough room for storage.
A clutter-free interior space is easy to clean and maintain – which is more important during the Covid-19 pandemic C– and loft storage is a great idea to keep your living zone more organized. With it, you can tuck away many things such as winter wear, space-consuming international luggage and your baby’s toys.
Colors have a deep and long-lasting impact on our mood. Some colors are known for infusing positivity into our mind whereas some set a tone of melancholy. A positive frame of mind produces some great benefits on our physical health.
As Covid-19 is rotting and ruining the global economic health to a point of no immediate return to normalcy, we can at least, try to stay cheerful to cope with the upcoming challenges and contribute to the recovery of rickety economy.
Green is very effective in lifting one’s mood. The color symbolizes energy and vivacity whereas spreading a very soothing effect throughout the interior. Using a warm color to paint the entire interior is an expensive idea and might also not be a favorite with the minimalist inside you. Therefore, consider using bright colors or applying texture paint to the main wall to turn it into a statement wall.
Covid-19 pandemic, lockdown and ongoing crisis have brought a huge change in our mindset. Washing hands repeatedly, maintaining social distancing and sanitizing interior have become a new norm in our life. With no clues about how long we have to bow down to Covid-19 browbeating, home is undoubtedly the best place where we feel ourselves safest.
How to ensure that your home is immune to virus attack? The answer is proper and regular sanitization. But here is a catch! Not all furniture pieces are water resistant and neither are they designed to withstand regular use of strong sanitizer.
Interior designing trends amidst Covid-19 crisis are witnessing huge demand for furniture items made of upcycled materials. Pallet board is a suitable example in this context. They are extremely safe to use and can easily endure frequent sanitization.
Finishing is another aspect undergoing a sea change. Homeowners are now getting drifted to easy-to-maintain finishing. Laminates, lacquers and acrylic are some of the most popular low-maintenance finishing. They feature a smooth and stain-resistant surface. They easily lend themselves to proper cleaning and sanitization.
As we are staying at home almost round the clock, we are increasingly becoming aware of the reality that our interior space has a significant influence on our physical ability and comfort and mental peace and mood. So, let us make our nest a safer, healthier and better place to live a happier life.
Hello, I am a friendly homo sapiens with necessary compliments to see, feel sense and taste that comes my way and even sometimes, from a distance. I have interest in many things but all of them US politics is a must-have dish for my breakfast, launch, and dinner. I am passionate but not obsessed with US politics.
