As the new year gets underway, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight some of the latest home design trends we expect to see in 2022. While design is constantly evolving, it’s always a good idea to know what’s trending, especially if you have plans to build or remodel soon. Scroll below to see some of our favorites!
It’s safe to say the last few years have turned the world of learning upside down. Although many students have returned to the classroom, distance and online learning aren’t expected to go away any time soon. So, it’s no surprise dedicated homework spaces have remained a popular home design trend. Whether it’s a homework nook or a decked-out room, there is no doubt kids will benefit from a private learning space.
Another big trend for 2022 is using flexible design elements to create multi-purpose spaces. Imagine a home office that doubles as a guest room or a mudroom-laundry room combo. Getting creative with design increases the functionality of your home and ensures it will continue to work for you, even as your needs change.
Stylish Alcove Tubs
Freestanding soaking tubs have gotten all the glory in recent years. Now, it’s the alcove tub’s time to shine! You can easily spruce up a basic shower-tub combo with an attention-grabbing tile surround, built-in niche, and sliding glass doors.
Compact Laundry Spaces
Full-size laundry rooms are often at the top of many homeowners’ wish lists, but it’s not always feasible. The good news? With smart space planning, practical storage, and organizational tools, even the smallest laundry areas can be high-functioning. Compact laundry spaces are becoming more common in mudrooms, ensuite closets, and even the garage.
Expansive Kitchen Windows
Who doesn’t love a light, bright kitchen? Incorporating windows into your kitchen design allows natural light inside, but in 2022, homeowners will be taking this design trend a step further with wall-to-wall windows. Adding long banks of multiple windows brings in plenty of natural light, fresh air, and outdoor views.
