As I’ve shared on more than one occasion, the pandemic was responsible for shifting the way we live and work which prompted many New Yorkers to look for bigger homes, more outdoor space, privacy and new amenities. “Home” is where many spend a majority of their time these days, even as we have made significant strides in combating COVID.

More time at home most likely means more money in the pocket now that dining out, entertainment and travel may not be happening as frequently as before the pandemic. This in turn has people applying their “unspent” disposable income toward investments in home improvements, given the quantity of time spent there. And the good news is, they don’t have to go at it alone. Experts in almost every aspect of home space, living and lifestyle are now in greater demand.

Whether looking to declutter, add houseplants, hang artwork or even have custom-made scents created for each room, there is a consultant available to help. The pandemic prompted many of us to reconfigure and improve upon our home space, thereby generating a need for home living and lifestyle experts whether it was by watching a YouTube DIY video or hiring an actual consultant.

Granted, a majority of people may not be in a financial position to hire a consultant to “help select a paint for a certain room”, or may just see it as a little extravagant and would rather put their hard earned dollars to better use or savings. And of course, there are those multi-talented individuals, who have the green thumb or discerning eye for home design, that don’t require any outside assistance.

Nevertheless, the residential market’s astounding recovery over the past 18 months has carried over into homeowners rethinking their current way of living and doing what they can to make home a little bit nicer—some even going so far as to hire feng shui practitioners to enhance health and prosperity in their homes and others enlisting environmental psychologists to help create spaces that enhance and stimulate moods and one’s performance.

The notion that anything in New York is possible couldn’t be more true. You can get anything you want, anytime. It just may cost you a pretty penny.
