How the Pandemic Is Changing the Future of Homes


With the changes taking place across the globe, people are looking at their lives—and their homes—differently. You are spending much more time in your space, which gives you the opportunity to look around and see how you can make it work for you. We have seen a lot of people at Seigle’s who are finally ready to make their homes into their dream spaces. Will this sentiment last beyond the pandemic? Recently Domino, a home and style magazine, posted a fascinating article that polled experts to see what they thought about the “Future of Homes Post-Quarantine.” A few of their opinions seem to really line up with what we’ve seen at Seigle’s so far! Here are some of their predictions:

Bigger kitchens

When you are staying at home for more meals, you are really giving your kitchen (and your cooking skills!) a workout. Did you discover a love for baking like everyone else when stay-at-home orders were put in place? Or are you honing what you can make for your family, knowing special meals can be savored at home? If so, it’s quite possible that this new passion showed you that your kitchen style, design, and flow are inadequate. We can absolutely help you! Let us know what you want out of a new kitchen, and we’ll work with you to understand what’s available, the cost, and how to get there! And best of all, design and estimates with Seigle’s are free!

Virtual shopping

As soon as stay at home orders were put in place, Seigle’s made “virtual appointments” available. And the best news? You can do so many early steps of a kitchen or bathroom remodel without having to leave your house! Our designers love the opportunity to get projects started, understanding what customers like or don’t like about their current setup, what you hope to accomplish, and even getting a “virtual tour” of your space while you are in it! Check out this virtual visit we filmed to show you what you could expect—and stick around for the reveal of the design, which is so fabulous and fun.

Multifunctional spaces

With everyone being home more often, families found the need for spaces to do extra work. A lot of people without home offices suddenly found themselves in need of a desk space—whether it’s to achieve a comfortable space for working, an organized and motivating work area, or an appropriate (or even an impressive) Zoom backdrop. Kids needed a schoolwork area. And with everyone around, organization of any space—the basement, laundry room, mudroom or entryways—can help reduce stress and chaos. Custom cabinets can go a long way at making your spaces work for you. Check out these space transformations!

Shopping local

As a family owned business, we can offer personalized, affordable service to you to help you achieve your remodel dreams. Of course we love what the expert in the article had to say: “More than ever, I’m asking my clients to be aware of who they’re supporting with their money—not every antiques store or small furniture-maker is going to survive. We have to back the people doing work we believe in.” And the great news about Seigle’s is that we can offer you full service start to finish, including free design and estimates, financing through Greensky, and installation through our ProInstall program.
