Three-Minute Trend: How Our Homes Must Change

Has all this time spent indoors changed how we use our homes? The answer is a resounding yes. Two in five Europeans are now using their homes for activities they previously wouldn't do there (Samsung, 2021) and globally, two in five consumers made changes to their interior to accommodate this (Ikea, 2020). It's creating an appetite for lasting adaptability that will support future lifestyle and household changes too.

Smart solutions with shapeshifting properties are creating open floorplans for such all-round spaces. The brands behind these designs are offering the resilience consumers crave, while contributing to a forward-facing housing stock.

In this Three-Minute Trend, Dewi Pinatih, Stylus' senior editor of Product Design, tracks some of the most exciting space-efficient interior innovations and explains how brands can target both consumers and developers with designs optimised for flexibility.

In this time of accelerated change and global volatility, Stylus' Three-Minute Trend videos offer short, sharp insights into the business challenges and commercial opportunities that matter right now, whatever industry you're in.
