The New Normal Home Living: Adapting the Usual with Transformative Thinking   

The “new normal” has taught us that the things and activities that we used to do outside of our home are really doable within the confines of our house, despite its limited size. Thus the emergence of smartly designed units that cater to new normal living. 

Discovering a new way of living that is quite different from the old normal we were used to, property seekers now want smartly designed spaces when it comes to choosing a home such as a condo in Cebu to purchase and occupy. 

Here is what tops the list of what people are looking for in a new home in the new normal that will make sure that their home investment is crisis-proof with whatever life has to throw.

The need and importance for multi-purpose home spaces

Because of the pandemic, everything that you used to do outside is now done indoors. Your home is also now your office, school, parlor, gym, even restaurant all-in-one. Because of this, it is important to live in a home that you can rearrange to fit your lifestyle.

Condo units in Almond Drive range from studio-types to two-bedroom units with a floor area of 14 to 59 square meters. There are a total of eight types of units to choose from in Almond Drive which gives you the freedom to choose a layout that works best with your lifestyle. 

Because these units have an open floor plan, you can utilize each and every corner in your home for different purposes or you can make multi-purpose spaces. 

Your bedroom: The home office/kids classroom/hotel room

For example, your bedroom can double as your private home office. Move things around so you can set up your work area with a sensible desk, office chair, and a well-placed extension cord for your electronics. You can even get yourself another monitor to make working a little bit easier.

If you have kids and they have their own room, that can double as their classroom for online classes. Just set up a designated table in the corner of the room as their designated work and study place.

Make sure all the materials you need like books, pens, paper, and even laptop or study equipment are within reach so you don’t need to stand up and frantically look for them when needed. 

Be sure to also place good work-from-home lighting in that are with the use of natural light from windows or have LED lamps strategically placed for better visibility on whatever it is you’re working on.

If you miss traveling or staycations then why not upgrade your bedroom set-up to feel more hotel-like? Paint the walls with your favorite color, match it with the sheets and throw pillows in there as well. 

Place a few plant pots for greenery and add a humidifier to give off your favorite scent— lavender maybe? You can even throw in some themed “room service” to get into the spirit. No need to book a hotel, just enter your room and feel like you’re on a staycation. 


Your dining area: A fancy restaurant for a fun dinner with the kids or a romantic date

Instead of eating outside, you may convert your dining area into a restaurant with help from home decors which will make you feel like you are eating in a fancy restaurant. 

Spruce up the space with fancy lighting from chandeliers. Use simple and elegant glasses, cutlery, and plates to elevate your dining experience. You can even set up table cloths and napkins for that extra dash of elegance!

Want a romantic vibe? There’s nothing more romantic than adding scented candles or a fresh vase of flowers! Go the extra mile and set them up with the rest of the lights closed so that the candles can illuminate your night.

For a fun dinner with the kids, set up your table with colorful tablecloths and plates! Just make sure all of them are plastic or not easily breakable to avoid accidents. Add in some fun place mats with activities that your kids can do while they wait for the food. It’ll feel like those days in the pizza places with crayons and papers waiting for you on the table the moment you arrive.


Your Living room: A trip to the cinema or your indoor camping grounds

For the living room, there are so many things you can do! If you miss the cinema, one way to recreate that is with a wide-screen projector, some soft carpet, or even your bed cushions on the floor, and your comfiest sheets pillows, and pillows— there you have it, a homemade comfy cinema!

Longing for the great outdoors? Set up camp right in your living room! Layout some comfy blankets, pillows and get yourself a cute little star projector or get close to the balcony door. It’ll feel like you laying under the night sky. If you’re feeling extra, light a candle that reminds you of the forest smell and have a makeshift campfire so you “roast” marshmallows and create smores.


Your Bathroom: Your very own spa or hair salon

Need some R and R? With a few scented candles, you can turn your bathroom into a spa. Gather all your favorite skin and body care products, play some relaxing music on your phone or speakers, and leave a ‘Do not disturb’ banner in front of the bathroom door for some peace and quiet.

But if you’re in the mood for a new ‘do, time to get those do-it-yourself hair dyes, a pair of scissors, and a friend to help you out. You can easily turn your bathroom into your very own salon with just a high stool, wrap a cloth around yourself (to mimic the hairdressing gown you wear at the salon), and get your materials salon-ready.

This versatility of space is one of the factors property seekers are aiming to find and without a doubt if this is on top of your list, a condominium in Cebu in Almond Drive is the perfect one for you!
