Last year drastically changed the way we operate. From work to school and everything in between, the “next normal” has officially been ushered in. Whether we work or do school from home, we’re all navigating the ups and downs of a stay-at-home world. Now that a new year has begun, it’s time to start thinking proactively about the comfort levels in our abodes. So, take a good look around, find areas that could use an infusion of comfort, and invest in the one location you’re at a majority of every day.
