Redecorating Your Home Amid Pandemic

Don't let the pandemic get in the way of redecorating your home

After coping with the sudden disruption caused by the lockdown, families across India are now settling down to make the best of their lockdown situation. In the initial few weeks of the lockdown in April, there was anxiety-led buying as users scrambled to stock home necessities and personal protection supplies.

According to the buying trends in May and June, online buying expanded to include more home use products like utensils and pressure cookers as well as summer apparel products. Users also bought products in pursuit of new hobbies especially cooking, gardening. The need for minor repair and maintenance work at home also led to increased sales for DIY small repairing kits etc.

With time and opportunity at hand and with the festive season now commencing, many users are taking up small home improvement projects.
