What lockdown could mean for our lives at home, during C 19, and beyond…
In many ways, our homes have become our entire worlds through lockdown, and as our horizons shrank through quarantine and lockdown, we’ve been forced to reassess how to continue living in a much smaller domain.
Lockdown may be easing for many around the world and we’re finally getting an indication of the adapted behaviours and attitudes that may stick for the foreseeable future. Tech giants talk of the success of working from home and even suggest now doing it ‘forever’. As we brace ourselves for ‘the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression’, we are likely to also be spending less on going out and spending more time in the home, even after the spread of COVID 19 has significantly slowed.
To explore this, we at Discover.ai have analysed the online conversations around how people are re evaluating their homes. We’ve put blogs, magazines, and social media, all discussing the shifting needs and uses of the home, into our platform.
What has surfaced are insightful snapshots of how people are physically transforming and restructuring where they live, and how emotionally, we are recovering our sense of what we want this most intimate space to mean to us and the people we share it with.
We found that life at home during lockdown (and beyond), is all about:
- Fighting the Blur
- The Surprise Guest
- Keeping the Spark Alive
- Fortifying the Ramparts
- Occasions to Decompress
