Remodel Contractor - April 27, 2022 - With 2021 being compared to anything from a train wreck to a dumpster fire, people are cautiously welcoming a clean slate and a new start to their lives: 2022! With New Year’s resolutions and new trends in abundance, many people are looking for ways to bring exciting, hopeful changes to their lives. What better way to do that than remodel your home? We’ve gotten to know our own homes more in 2021 than ever before with quarantines and social distancing. Maybe it’s time to show our homes a little more love since we’ve grown so close to them last year. So, for your New Year’s remodel, here are seven home remodeling trends to look for in 2022.
There are plenty of design predictions out there for 2022, but eco-friendly fabrics and sustainable furnishings are definitely in vogue. We’ve seen some progress on cleaning up our world during quarantine simply from the lack of activity. Now it’s time to keep it going by bringing it into our homes with sustainable, durable rather than mass produced and easily damaged furnishings, natural fiber carpets, and sustainable linens and bedding.
2020 brought new meaning to the phrase “cleanliness is close to godliness.” After the pandemic instilled in all of us the obsessive urge to wipe down every surface with Lysol, a trend to look for in 2022 is easy-to-clean surfaces and fabrics. This means durable rugs and upholstery and non-porous surfaces like glass and metal. This is practical for germ-killing and for daily spills and messes.
3. Land and Sea
The two color trends to look out for in 2022 are soothing sky and ocean blues and warm, earthy tones. Our homes have become our sanctuaries, and these colors are calming and cozy. Earth tones create an inviting atmosphere to relax and recharge, while blues that mimic the sky remind us of clear days meant for productivity. This makes those soothing blues the perfect color for our next trend, the home office.
4. Home Offices
Admit it, after working from home for a couple of weeks, you wished you had more in your home office than a desk and those cardboard boxes of junk you never unpacked from your last move. As the world moves more towards virtual and at-home work and learning, we’ll be seeing a spike in home office remodels.
After the stress of the pandemic, we’re looking for sanctuary and familiarity in our homes. As such, remodeling styles are leaning towards nostalgic vibes with a modern spin. Shabby chic, art deco, traditionalism, and grandmillenial styles are becoming the rage, as well as vintage redesigns. Antique stores, here we come!
6. House Plants
Especially for those living in apartments or with small yards, house plants have become a must-have. In 2022, we’re bringing the outdoors in with everything from succulents to creepers, and we’re loving the fresh oxygen and lively green they’re bringing to our spaces.
7. Personal Spas
Since we couldn’t go get mani-pedis and relax in a saunas in 2021, bathroom remodels to make these spaces our own personal spas are on the rise. Self-care for the win.
Let these trends inspire you as you show your home the same love it’s shown you over the past year. Or maybe start your own trends. It’s 2022: the possibilities are endless!
