While COVID-19 leaves a great deal of hardship and heartbreak in its wake, there is some good that has come out of the pandemic. Hatchett Design Remodel was fortunate to be among the essential businesses allowed to continue operation. However, it meant overhauling our 60-year tried and true process. It wasn’t easy, but our team rose to the challenge. Together, we found innovative ways to maintain our high level of customer service while protecting our employees and our customers.
Adapting to Change
Jessica, one of our Designers, had this to say, “I have been so impressed by everyone’s ability to adjust to a new way of doing things – our team and our clients. Our team was quick to learn Zoom, Prezi and other ways of holding virtual meetings. We did whatever we could to create a user-friendly process. We’ve held zoom consultations with clients that have probably never made a video call before.” It has taken determination, resiliency and innovative thinking to get us through this past year. And that led us to an even more stream-lined, efficient process for our clients.
Homeowners and Their Homes
Another positive outcome of the pandemic is a new found appreciation for our homes. As we spent the vast majority of our days inside our houses, we realized the immeasurable value of a comforting space to call home. Jessica added, clients are now also “more aware of how they use their space, because they have been in it more than ever.”
How you use your space has a direct impact on how we design it. The need for at home work spaces is one area of interest to homeowners. Our design team will find a solution that meets your needs and your budget. Possible solutions include an in-home office, a built-in work station or a large kitchen island with room to spread out.
Some growing trends in home remodeling aren’t just out of necessity however. In response to COVID-19, many families are looking for ways to add comfort, luxury and fun to their homes.
In the era of social distancing, there’s a high demand for upgraded outdoor living spaces. Gathering with friends and family in an open-air setting is the only safe way to enjoy a social life these days. Outdoor living spaces have long been considered a luxury. However, once you renovate yours, you’ll likely wonder how you ever lived without it.
Luxury in the Details
Amenities like heated bathroom floors and warming towel racks are in high demand as well. These types of features are simple upgrades that bring a touch of joy to your everyday routine.
