2022 Home Design Trends to Watch,
Plus Tips On How To Achieve Them
2022 home design trends include current favorites that can go the distance, some oldies making comebacks, and timeless classics that hold strong. With this variety, you can create a home that is on trend, and that will also remain in style for years to come. The emphasis on sustainability and natural elements continues to grow, along with home offices, and keeping clean spaces.
70’s Retro | Gentle ‘pops’ of moss greens, burnt orange, and other warm neutrals brighten up interiors. To achieve this, look at your local flea markets, vintage or thrift stores, and antique shops. You probably will not find the perfect piece the first time out, perseverance is key to finding vintage. Check out trusted vintage furniture websites like 1st Dibs or Chairish. Other places to check out include your local estate sales and antique auctions.
Design With Nature | For 2022, go the extra mile with your nature-inspired design by bringing authentic greenery into your home. Live plants will complement your natural wood tones and warm browns, and they will purify the air. Some of the best plants for ‘green’ interior design include:
Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree, a hardy tree for sunny rooms.
Monstera, a family of plants with cut-out-shaped leaves that do well in low-light interiors.
Snake Plant, easy to maintain and rumored to absorb negativity.
Sweetheart Plant, a climber that is happy in shaded rooms.
Remember to do your research on care, and toxicity if you have pets, before you make your decision on which plants to purchase.
Zen Vibes | Elevate your environmentally-friendly design aesthetic by showcasing sustainable living in interiors. Light woods, clean lines, and floating surfaces can set the tone for a calm zen lifestyle. Think organic and natural, and less is more with this look. Plants are often included to add to the calming effect.
Home Office Ideals | Create a home office space that is perfect for you. They can come in all shapes and sizes, from a roomy space with everything you need at your fingertips, to a fold-away desk in a cozy corner. Aim to make the space work for you! Keep in mind that practicality, functionality, and aesthetics are equally important. When designing your office space, keep these points in mind:
Location, is the space quiet and out of highly-trafficked areas of your home?
Equipment, include everything you need and avoid things that only add clutter.
Storage, you need space to keep everything organized and neat. Some containers can double as decor.
Color, think about calming colors like greens, blues, and neutrals.
Decor, it should be kept to a minimum to help you stay focused. Consider wall art, and unique shelving.
Rounded Edges | This design trend has been thriving for several years. Furniture and decor with softer edges can complement your traditional angled pieces. Rounded furniture can include soft-edge tables and reimagined contemporary chairs and sofas. You can also find it in vintage and antique shops.
Smarter Furniture | Multifunctional spaces are on trend now, and furniture designers are following suit. Smart furniture design includes pieces with integrated technology too. Look for multi-cornered couches with multiple shape sectional options and storage.
Basic, Natural, Neutral Colors | When you use neutral color as your base, you always have a forgiving canvas for your interior pieces. Choose wall colors that make natural materials feel at home.
Light Flooring | Light floors do their part to bounce light across a room. They offer a minimalistic look that complements brighter colors in your decor. Warm up rooms with soft textures and curated artwork groupings.
