Wellness design surged in popularity at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, and over the past several years it has continued to dominate design trends as homeowners seek out innovative ways to keep their homes safe and healthy. This year’s 10th annual Design & Construction Week offered an up-close glimpse into the newest products and trends influencing wellness design over the next year.
