Style Watch: Multipurpose Workspaces
Jun 20, 2022
Since the beginning of the pandemic, working from home has only become more and more common. And while we are slowly getting certain parts of life back to normal, working from home is not something we see being taken away any time soon. From the lack of commute to the flexibility that remote work allows, many industries are recognizing the benefits of allowing their employees to do their jobs from wherever they see fit – and oftentimes, that means working from the comfort of their own homes.
If you are one of the many who works in a partially or fully remote position, you know the importance of creating a productive space within your home. Not everyone has the space for a home office, which brings us to one of our favorite interior design trends in 2022: Multipurpose Workspaces. This post-pandemic style puts emphasis on creating a workspace in your house that you can feel good about, that helps you relax and most importantly, that helps you be your most productive self.
Whether you have a home office or a coworkspace shared in your household, upgrading your space with floors that function well and feel good is the perfect way to elevate your work area, lift your spirits and amplify your efficiency on the job. Check out some of our favorite flooring products below to start creating your dream workspace at home.
