As we start a new year, you might get the urge to refresh your home. If you’re ready to change things up, we have 7 interior design trends for you!
Sustainability has been a major concern for years, and it’s not slowing down any time soon. When it comes to choosing more sustainable furnishings for your home, think about choosing long-lasting items. Textiles made from natural fibers like cotton, wool, or linen and household items made of bamboo are affordable, sustainable, and easy to find. You can also opt for real wood furniture over cheaper, but less durable alternatives.
Sustainability can also factor into other parts of your home like your windows and doors. Trading your outdated windows or doors for modern, energy-efficient ones is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint and your energy bills – while keeping your home more comfortable.
For years, white and gray have been the most popular neutrals in interior design. But in 2022, brown is making a comeback. Rich chocolate browns are the perfect way to make a neutral statement, while shades of tan and camel are great substitutes for gray.
In line with the comeback of warm neutrals like brown, leather furniture is poised to be big this year. Go all out with a leather sofa or just add a touch of leather with an armchair to get on top of this trend.
In 2022, more people will be leaving minimalism behind and moving toward maximalism. Where minimalism is an ultra-modern style that encourages you to use just the essentials and a monochromatic color palette to create a completely uncluttered space, maximalism does the opposite. Maximalist interior design embraces color, texture, and things. It encourages you to fill your space with things you love, in a rainbow of colors.
Along with maximalism, bold patterns and lots of color will be in this year. Ditch the neutrals for jewel tones, skip solid colored walls for fun wallpaper, and adorn your space with brightly colored accents like blankets, throw pillows, and art!
In 2022, adding visual interest with texture will be big. Adding texture can mean mixing different textiles, adding a new rug, or hanging three-dimensional items on your walls like baskets and tapestries. This goes hand-in-hand with maximalism, since you’ll be mixing and matching different textures to get the look and feel you want.
With more people working from home for the long haul, multi-purpose rooms are on the rise. Your office may also be your craft room, your bedroom might also be your home gym, and your dining room has likely functioned as a work space for a while. In 2022, people will be setting these spaces up for long-term multi-purpose use with alterations or renovations.
