With 2021 just about over, it’s time to start thinking about how you will decorate your home in 2022. It’s possible to predict the home decor trends that are about to be in fashion, so read on to see five of them below.
A retro touch can be expected in many homes in 2022, especially for those looking to remodel and breathe new life into their spaces. It’s possible to find some amazing pre-owned vintage furniture from your local thrift store or a garage sale in your area. These can be cleaned or reupholstered to make them look as good as new while still leaving a touch of retro in them. With about 30% of people looking for a new couch, you can search online ads to find people who are disposing of their current ones. This way, you will find a large variety of attractive vintage furniture from which to choose your perfect pieces.
Sustainability is becoming more than just a fashion trend thanks to its potential to help people go green. Natural materials that have been sourced ethically are about to become big news. Designers are making more use of materials like clay, brick, cotton, velvet, and linen in their creations, so you can expect a lot more of these to be available on the market in 2022. This is a great way to encourage sustainable practices and do away with the mentality that sustainability is dull, boring, and complicated.
Natural Decor Elements
As 2021 draws to a close, it’s already clear that nature is becoming a more dominant force in people’s homes, both indoors and outdoors. Up to 52% of people responding to a survey said they hired professional help to improve their landscape or lawn, while 41% of them wanted to save time. A final 30% said that they wanted to enjoy their yard more than they currently do, so if you fall in any of these categories, it’s a good idea to seek the help of a professional landscape artist. If you want to focus on the indoors, an interior designer may be better placed to advise you on which plants to get depending on your needs, as well as the best placement and proper care for them.
Minimalism has also been in fashion for a while, and more people are starting to realize that they can practice it. When done right, it improves the overall livability of your space. Declutter and decongest your house in readiness for a minimalist home, leaving the necessities and making it possible to enjoy the little that is left a lot more.
Fully Equipped Home Offices
This year and the last one saw a lot of people shifting their operations to their homes where they set up home offices. Many others also started up businesses from their homes. These decor trends are likely to grow even more in 2020 because of the ease of the working from home lifestyle, which has seen more people become more productive as they cut down on their daily commute. With the market size of interior designers in America expected to be worth $14.6 billion in 2020, it definitely surpassed this mark. To improve your productivity and the concentration of other individuals who will be working or studying from home, consider setting up a robust home office.
While decor trends come and go, some of them hang around for quite a while or make a reappearance soon after they start to be forgotten. With the events of the previous year and this one in mind, it’s clear that functionality, sustainability, and comfort are a large part of the considerations people will be putting in their homes when they remodel.
