Westchester Interior Designer Cites Growing Demand For Multi-Functional Living Spaces
As New York and Connecticut reopen for business and companies prepare for a return to the workplace, many residents are taking a fresh look at their “home” offices and weighing their options for living in a post-pandemic world.
“People are starting to consider their homes as multi-functional spaces,” said Denise Balassi, owner of Spaces of Distinction, an award-winning interior design firm in South Salem. “Can the spare bedroom second as a gym? Can the dining room double as a home office? Can the kitchen be transformed into more of classroom for the kids?”
This “multi-living” style also involves a new perspective on the uses of outdoor space – think Zooming on your veranda – as well as incorporating new safety modes into home designs. “We just received a request for mudrooms that allow people to sanitize themselves,” said Balassi, whose firm is celebrating its 25th year in business. “The pandemic has really prompted people to rethink their homes.”
It also has prompted New York City dwellers to consider heading north and as many people flee Manhattan for more open space in the suburbs, they are going to either buy, build or renovate – and they are going to need local talent. This presents opportunities for designers to be even more creative and fits in perfectly with Spaces of Distinction’s unique approach. “Interior design is about people, lifestyle and the functionality of living space,” Balassi said.
