Why Staying in is the New Going Out

"Staying in" has become the new "going out" to an extent so investing in your property makes even more sense. Just imagine after a busy day, whether it is working from home or looking after the family, you have an area where you can relax. Better still if it is an airy and comfortable place where you can enjoy the garden, even in mid-winter because it is double-glazed and perfectly warm.

Things will ‘’never be the same again’’ to a greater or lesser extent and time will tell how society recovers from a year the like of which no living person can remember. Let us hope that vaccines are developed but some aspects of living may have changed forever.

That is just one of the reasons why you may be looking at your home and wondering whether you could or should adapt it to this new reality. If you have the opportunity to create extra space, perhaps for a dedicated work area but also to give all family members more space in itself, then why not look at ways to create that?

The quality of conservatories or orangeries can transform a house, both in space creation but also in adding to the value of a property. The costs involved are more than covered by the increase in value that is usually achieved. If you need more space and can create it without moving, think about the money saved on the fees involved in any move.

While no one can predict how many workers who are currently working from home will continue to do so once the problem fades, the home will become the new norm for a significant number of workers given that the internet has transformed the opportunities to function effectively.

Social lives are changing and the gathering of huge crowds at sporting events, concerts and rallies are certainly off the agenda at present. No one could ever imagine that would happen. Families that spent limited time at home, with everyone having something outside to do or someone to meet has had to adjust their lives to some extent.

Mel C of Spice Girls’ fame had a solo hit ‘’Never Be the Same Again’’ and in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic when everyone is wary of a second wave, this phrase has never been more relevant. Who knows whether a vaccine will result in the virus becoming no more dangerous than a bad cold? Everyone hopes so but we will see.
