As more people are staying home this year, there has been a reported increase in home renovations. Additional homeowners are upgrading their kitchens or renovating their bathrooms. Some are even improving their home offices.
According to Houzz, both interior designers and architects reported higher levels of activity in the residential renovation market in the third quarter (versus the second quarter) of this year. Amanda Schneider, the founder of ThinkLab, uncovered research that shows a shift in commercial interior design projects now that offices are closed and more corporations have transitioned to a work-from-home strategy. The data shows that residential interior designers are busier than their commercial counterparts.
