Flex Spaces: The New Norm

While homebuyers continue to search for a home that accommodates spaces that can provide multiple uses, multifunctional designs continue to stay top of mind and in high demand. Forbes claims flex spaces are highly considered when designing a room to future-proof the area. Utilizing the space in large walk-in closets for multipurpose functions is rising. Here are the top ways to transform homes to serve the high demand for "flex spaces."

Walk-in Closets

Walk-in closets have always been at the top of everyone’s wish list when buying a home. While that remains true, mindsets have shifted to wanting a walk-in closet that can be a “get-ready room.” Closets with vanities to do make-up, hair, and accessories have been the new way to consider walk-in closets.

Work(out) from home!

Home gyms haven’t gone away, and it doesn’t look like they will. Who doesn’t want to save money on a gym membership and not have to wait in line for equipment? Dedicating a space for a gym has become a new standard for homes. Whether in a spare bedroom, basement, or garage, repurposing an area that may not get used is a great way to add a home gym.

Home offices are taking over!

Working from home continues! The NAHB shared that 70% of employed people work remotely at least once a week post-COVID. This has shifted homeowners’ priorities to sacrificing space to fit an office or, better yet, a flex space. If adding an office isn’t an option, consider repurposing an unused closet or corner.
