It seems like the trend of remote work is here to stay. With more people at home most of the time, home design has become more important than ever. Whether you want to increase your house’s curb appeal, focus on interiors, or upgrade to an entirely new space, there are a variety of 2022 home design trends that can provide ample inspiration.
Design Trends for 2022
Colors and Decor
Neutral shades will continue to be extremely popular for both interior and exterior design. The Sherwin-Williams 2022 Color of the Year is Evergreen Fog. It is neutral organic gray-green. Neutral colors like this, as well as beige and ecru are easy to accessorize and go with almost anything. In keeping with the growing public interest in sustainability, organic-looking materials like wood and glass are being used to craft light fixtures, coffee tables, and more. Synthetics like plastic and resin are growing in popularity alongside other finishes like quartz, marble, and even wood-mimicking laminate.
Once upon a time, homes had different rooms for everything. However, the popularity of the modern open floor plan has caused homebuyers to seek out versatile spaces that can serve multiple functions. Maybe your kitchen has a large island that can also function as a workstation, or your living room has a special play area for children that is set apart from the main area. Multipurpose rooms allow you to take advantage of every inch of your home.

As technology keeps advancing, it’s only natural that home design will follow suit. Like with interior design trends for 2022, sustainability will play a huge role in shaping home technology trends. Renewable power sources like solar panels are popping up on roofs all over America. Smart appliances are another burgeoning market. Many devices like refrigerators and thermostats now have Wi-Fi capabilities to assist you in monitoring your home and reducing energy consumption.
Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity – not a threat.
