Swiss Army Knife Design

One of the terms used in the ACME BRICK article was Swiss Army Knife Design which means, rooms that are multi-functional. Specifically, the article said, “Single-use spaces seem to be a thing of the past.” 2022 interior design trends will feature ideas for multi-functional rooms.

The kitchen island is a multi-functional space in the kitchen. It serves as a desk for homework, a surface for crafts, a spot for coffee and conversation, and a bar for your breakfast and late-night snack. Today's floorplans are open, allowing for multiple uses. 
Working from home (WFH) which started in 2020 continues to grow as a trend - one many believe may be a permanent shift. Homeowners have had to pivot to include space for a home office. When designing your home office, no matter what size space you have available - remember to design with functionality, practicality, and aesthetics in mind.
