If you’re planning on redesigning your space, it’s only natural that you would want to be aware of what’s currently trending. Here are some of the current design trends that can help guide you as you make plans to renovate and update your space in 2022.
Minimalism aims to create a decluttered, simplified space. It involves getting rid of unnecessary possessions and only retaining the things that you truly need or love. As part of creating a minimalist space, consider painting the walls a light, bright color that will help the room feel larger and more inviting. Minimalism tends to favor a more contemporary look for features like furniture and cabinets — clean lines with little ornamentation are key to this style.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused many people to start using their homes as a multi-functional space for work, school, and daily living. Even as routines go back to normal, many households — particularly those with less space — are continuing to make use of this trend. Options for creating a multi-functional space could include multi-use furniture, or even crafting a custom storage or cabinetry area where you can fold and stow furniture and other items when not in use.
Style trends don’t just apply to your home’s interior—they affect the exterior as well. People are increasingly trying to make their backyard an extension of the home. This can be accomplished by installing a patio or deck that matches the overall aesthetic of the house, and incorporating usable features such as fire pits or outdoor kitchens. This can turn the yard into a space you can use year-round.
