This year has forced us to rethink everything about our homes and how we interact within familiar spaces. Our household has become the place where we work, exercise, teach, learn, and manage all the drastic changes of 2020. With most of us working remotely while homeschooling our kids, we’ve become super creative to adapt, but have our homes altered to accommodate our new lives?
One of the most relevant design trends of the year is the multifunctional room. Whether it’s an office that doubles as a media/living room, or a garage that’s been converted to a yoga studio, we’ve learned to re-see our surroundings and ask, how is my home serving me today?
Did your guest room morph into a workspace? Or do you Zoom from the kitchen table? Maybe you created a cozy office in your bedroom with a desk and shelving combo. If you don’t have the extra space and want to draw a line between life and work, try repurposing your closet and using full length drapes to conceal your workspace when it’s time to clock out.
Check out this sweet conversion of closet to office… or should we say “Cloffice”?
Another great space-saver that’s perfect for multifunctional spaces is wall shelving. Webfoot’s residential carpentry team builds floating shelves and wall units to get you organized while making storage look beautiful.

Another trending multifunctional space is the playroom and guest room combination. Already using your living room as a playroom? Here are some helpful tips on how to create distinct zones to maintain your sanity!
