1. HOME OFFICE

Remote working, thanks to technology, became a must for many businesses in the last year. It also was a boon for their employees. "Seventy-seven percent of the workforce say they want to continue to work from home," Global Workplace Analytics' president, Kate Lister, president of Global Workplace Analytics said at Forbes.com.

2. HOME GYM

3. SWIMMING POOL
