Does working up a sweat with virtual fitness classes in the living room and tackling work emails in your bedroom sound all too relatable? Due to the pandemic, many of us have had to get a little more creative and embrace the idea of multifunctional spaces. Needless to say, our home essentials have expanded beyond the basics and into a little bit of everything. Luckily for us, Amazon launched The New Home Essentials guide dedicated to making sure we get all of our home needs (both old and new) covered.

Amazon breaks down the new essentials into multiple categories — including living spaces, housework, wellness, and playtime — that include everything you need to work or learn from home, support your new gardening hobby, and so much more. The guide also includes helpful shopping tools that allow you to design a virtual living room and "like" or "dislike" items to curate product recommendations just for you.
