12 Home Trends To Expect For 2022

12 Home Trends To Expect For 2022

With 2022 just a few months away, many homeowners are ready to refresh their living spaces. This is especially true as many of us have continued to spend more time at home since the start of the pandemic.  From new color schemes to creating multifunctional areas and embracing the styles of the past, here’s a look at some of the most popular trends emerging for 2022:

Home Offices

One trend that is expected to remain a favorite well into 2022 is the addition of the home office. The COVID-19 pandemic changed how we work and many employees are still conducting at least some business from home. The increased use of Zoom and other video chatting programs has also made it important to have a quiet, professional room for calls and virtual meetings. 

Indoor Plants and Outdoor Gardens

Garden spaces and indoor plants also became popular during the height of the pandemic. As a result, live greenery is expected to remain a top trend as we head into 2022. Plants are soothing and relaxing, as well as beautiful. Making space in your home for plants can boost your mood and potentially improve air quality. If you have yard space, you might even choose to start a garden. 

Multifunctional Rooms

Using the common areas in your home, such as the dining room or the living room, as multifunctional areas is quickly becoming the norm. Start simple by styling the room with a piece of furniture, such as a bookshelf, and adding clever storage options, such as a coffee table with hidden storage or a storage ottoman. When you’re ready to go bigger, play around with room combinations, such as setting up part of the living room as a playroom or incorporating the dining room into the kitchen. 

Energy-Efficient Windows

We are living in an era of sustainability. Energy saving windows reduce the amount of energy used by your home. You can also achieve this effect with plantation shutters. Plantation shutters are naturally energy-efficient, so they keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Installing plantation shutters on your windows is an eco-friendly solution to curtains and blinds. 

Retro Furniture and Decor

The past is the future. The home decor trends in 2022 will look more like the design styles of the 1970s and the 1990s. The 70s is back to bring us elaborate tile floors, art deco styles, decorative patterns, rattan chairs, and muted, earthy colors. The 90s revival, meanwhile, brings with it blonde wood, white kitchens, and familiar color palettes, like neon and pastel. If you’re looking for 2022 inspiration, look no further than the designs of these decades.

Natural Paint Colors

The past two years have seen a rise in homeowners looking to create an oasis inside of their homes. Instead of the bold, bright colors spotted in the years before the pandemic, more natural colors are now the preferred choices. In 2022, expect to see many different shades of green, deep yellows, and faded blues that are reminiscent of the 70s and 90s trends. You’ll also spot earthy browns and neutral colors, like beige. 

Circle and Oval Shapes

2022 is set to be the year of circular furniture. Tables with curved edges and soft, round lounge chairs are trendy and tie into the current 1970s nostalgia. There has also been a resurgence in mid-century modern furniture styles. 

Less Clutter

While the full minimalism look is on the decline, there is still a certain type of minimalism that is on the rise. This new style of minimalism strives to keep homes looking cozy and lived-in while minimizing clutter. Storage and organization, especially organization alongside multifunctional spaces, is the look of the new year. 

More Wallpaper

Once considered a relic of the past, wallpaper is more popular than ever. Textured looks, florals, tropical plants, birds, and art deco patterns are trendy for 2022. 

Black Accents

A pop of black color makes a bold, dramatic statement and is an extremely popular paint choice for 2022. Join the trend by adding black accents to an otherwise neutral or earth toned room. 

Plush Fabrics

Comfort is the name of the game for the new year. Look for 70s style plush couches and chairs, as well as corduroy cushions and even shag rugs to ring in 2022 like it’s 1972. 

Earthy Materials

Wood is a natural material filled with charm and character. Natural materials like wood, rattan, wicker, and bamboo are all trendy choices for furniture and decor in 2022.

“The members of Shenandoah Shutters are extremely professional. The first contact came in and measured the windows that were to be done. The second contact was with the guys who installed the shutters. In and out and they look wonderful. Can’t be more pleased with these shutters.”

Janet, Lynchburg, VA

“This company is fantastic. From the first contact we had with them (visiting their showroom) to the final installation, they are #1 professionals. After we visited the showroom, the salesperson came to our home, showed us a sample shutter, and made recommendations (and gave different styles) for our windows. After we accepted the contract, she made an appointment to come out and do exact measurements. We love our new shutters, and every element of this contract could not have been better. They even left a jar of VA peanuts!”

“We love hearing from our clients – Here’s a review we received this week……..”My shutters were delivered and installed this morning. From start to finish the installation took about 90 minutes. I am beyond impressed with the high quality craftsmanship and over the moon with how gorgeous they are. I’d also like to note, that everyone from Marcia in sales, Jodi in billing, and the installers, whose names I didn’t catch, are supremely professional. As a Richmonder, I love that the money from my purchase stays in the local economy, too. I will be singing this company’s praises for years to come. Thank you, Shenandoah Shutters!” Jessica – Richmond, VA”
