Spending too many hours at home has made us to be aware of the needs of our homes, increasing in these last months the interest in reform and purchase of furniture, as collected in a survey conducted by the Madrid School of Decorating.
Despite the fact that the part of the respondents did not consider it necessary to start reforms currently or you do not have the economic capacity to do so in these moments, more than 60% acknowledge that they have missed some improvement in home during the pandemic. A trend that is expected to continue during this 2021 being the renewal of the painting the main objective of many families. Also assume significance of the reforms of kitchens and bathrooms.

The exposure of our homes with telework, and the video calls have been made to grow our interest in the image that is transmitted. We have taken the conscious awareness that we live in a world that is very visual in that our house becomes a projection of our life. This shows the importance that the citizens have begun to give their homes, before forgotten, and the economic effort that they are willing to do to improve them.
More than half of the surveyed population is willing to invest up to € 5,000 in making a home more welcoming, and a third would be willing to reach up to € 15,000. In this way, we are faced with an increase in the percentage of spending on renovations and home care with respect to previous years, a trend that is very likely to continue this 2021.

The impossibility of going out to the street has revealed the shortcomings that many homes have. A good example is the natural light. The large and clear windows they have become the object of desire, and need.
Own space and not shared
Spend so many hours with the cohabitants has made necessary a little bit of intimacy and the need for a personal space where you can disconnect from work and the rest of the members living in the family unit. Spaces that we have begun to care for and pamper in search of peace and tranquility (explicndo the rise of trends such as the Japandi).
