Do-It-Yourself and Design
Einstein defined creativity as intelligence having fun. Although not everyone can be a genius or an inventor, many find it rewarding to design something and, ultimately, bring it to life. Your home becomes a place in which to express your imagination and dexterity. This is even truer today, as the pandemic increased time spent at home and expanded the cultivation of hobbies capable of giving us a lot of satisfaction.
About one fifth of Italians recently declared that they dedicate themselves more to Do-It-Yourself projects, and this has become even more established in countries such as Germany, Belgium and France.
Among the many activities carried out, gardening represents the favorite for 70% of people interviewed. This is followed by small carpentry work (58%). In recent months, increased attention to values such as health and well-being has been accentuated, and so have the spaces dedicated to small urban vegetable gardens, as seen in enhanced balconies, condominium roof spaces, and other residual spaces, which demonstrate a combination of gardening with DIY.
Also, adapting one's residence for professional activities has given further impetus to inventiveness in optimizing workstations.
