The year 2022 is here, which means it’s time to start thinking about what will be popular in the coming year when it comes to home designing. Our homes should inspire and nourish our minds and spirits, and this can be represented in a variety of ways by different people.
We’ve compiled experts’ predictions for home décor, interior design, home inspiration, and living room trends for 2022. What are some of the most frequently stated renovation ideas? Continue reading to know.
1. Sustainability Everywhere
As more intense weather patterns and changes in nature’s cycles begin to touch our day-to-day lives, environmental issues have gained root in the collective American consciousness. As a result, it’s no surprise that so many people are looking for more environmentally friendly, sustainable items and solutions for their homes. Expect to see landscaping that is both attractive and protective, particularly in places prone to wildfire or flooding. Repurposed flooring is expected to grow more popular within the home. Furthermore, ecological materials such as bamboo and cork are gaining popularity. Look to the roof for solar panels that go even further in terms of environmental friendliness.
2. Converting a spare room into an office
We believed we’d all be back in the office in 2021, but then Omicron came along. If you currently work in an office, it’s safe to assume that you’ll require an office space at home in the coming years if you need to shift to working from home for whatever reason. Consider a multipurpose area if you’re scared to convert a whole room into a home office.
3. Mixing Vintage and New
Vintage shopping is more attractive than ever, especially in the face of supply-chain breakdowns and months-long backorders. Vintage shopping is not only cost-effective and environmentally friendly, but it also adds character to a room. People are increasingly mixing antiques and vintage items with more modern designs, rather than buying all new furniture. Antiques and vintage-sourced decor and furniture are not only environmentally friendly because they are recycled goods, but they also allow for a juxtaposition of old and new in a place.
4. Glass walls
After spending almost a year indoors because of the epidemic, homeowners now want to feel like they’re outside. Glass walls on the inside or outside of a house can make homes appear larger and inviting. Glass barriers are an excellent method to maintain an open appearance and at the same time they also provide privacy for family members.
5. Large master bathrooms
Large master bathrooms are new in trend these days. These larger suite areas didn’t truly take off until the 1980s, and now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they’re getting even bigger and better. Most of us have deliberately and subconsciously improved our hygiene in the last year, and a master bathroom is a big part of that. Walk-in showers, double sinks, lighted mirrors, touchless faucets, greater storage, and heated floors are becoming less of a luxury and more of a need.
6. More Houseplants!
You may expect to see more living walls and hanging plants both in amenity spaces and houses since indoor plants have a relaxing impact and produce clean air.
7. Black Accents
Black accents and hardware will be a prominent house trend we’ll see in 2022. Choose light, neutral colors for the main elements of your home, such as paint colors and huge sofas, and incorporate black accents for contrast. Adding that is a fantastic way to bring some edge and depth to more minimalist interiors. Black accessories, such as lamps, can serve to enhance and provide depth to a space.
