Interior Design Trends to Look Out for in 2022

When was the last time you gave your home a makeover? If you’re still trying to make decor and furniture from 2010 work in your space, you’re overdue for an upgrade.

Let us help you stay ahead of the hottest new home decor trends to be on the lookout for. Keep reading to find the hot 2022 interior design trends to consider for your home.

Throw It Back

Just like clothing, make-up, and hairstyles, home interiors go through cycles that pay homage to the “good ol’ days.” Decor that was in every 1970 home is going to be popping up in all modern homes in 2022.

If you’re lucky, you have parents or grandparents who held onto their furniture knowing it would come back into style someday. If not, you will have to hit up the designer home design stores to find the perfect pieces for your space.

You’re going to be seeing accent chairs and sofas in all shades of brown, orange, and yellow. Shag carpeting will be making a comeback as well as gaudy lampshades and lava lamps.

If the ’70s are a bit too far back for your tastes, some key styles from the ’90s are also making a return.

Neon signs are all the rage right now, though they have received a modern update. Gone are the crude “bar” and “live nudes” neon signs that had their heyday in the ’90s. They are instead replaced by cutesy cloud, space, or inspirational quote (e.g., “good vibes”) signs.

Floral wallpaper was popular in the ’90s and you’re going to be seeing it everywhere in 2022. Don’t worry if you’re not committed enough to botanical prints to use real wallpaper and paste. Many manufacturers are now focusing on less permanent (and easier to use) peel-and-stick varieties.

Hello Greenery

Many modern homes are being built to include spaces explicitly for displaying plants or developing home gardens. When you consider the many, it’s not hard to see why we’re prioritizing them in 2022.

There’s no shortage of ways to display your houseplants. Hang them from macrame planters (another vintage trend that’s back in style). Build or buy a plant shelf to display in front of a window.

Air plants in terrariums are another hot trend to consider. They are very low maintenance and easy to keep alive, perfect for every brown thumb in the crowd.

Invest in Futuristic Technology

There’s no denying the hold that technology has taken on our lives. There was a time where technology was only found in our computers, but now it’s used for a wide variety of purposes. It’s no surprise that interior designs have begun using smart technology in their home interiors.

Lighting adds a certain ambiance to every room of your home. Smart technology in your lighting allows you to control the intensity, color, and brightness of your home. Being able to control every aspect of your lighting ensures you can set the mood no matter the occasion.

If you consider yourself an artist, you might invest in a 3D printer to DIY your own art. These high-tech printers can make almost anything you can think of from lamps to vases to furniture and everything in between.

The thing with smart technology is that it can cost quite a bit up front. You might consider getting a home improvement loan to help manage the initial investment.

Go Back to Basics

If you want to be ahead of the 2022 home trends, you should consider repainting your space. While bright walls and pops of color were a hit in the recent past, the focus is now on going back to the basics.

Shades of black, white, and grey used to be considered bland, but now designers are choosing them more often than not. Neutral colors make your space feel calm and relaxing. Neutrals are blendable, versatile, and allow for a wide range of decor options.

Bold wall colors tend to take center stage which causes your home decor to fade into the background. Neutral shades allow for the textural elements of your space to be the center of focus for once.

The great thing about neutrals is that they go with almost any other color. You can still have pops of color in your space and they won’t clash.

Embrace Minimalism

Minimalism is nothing new. In fact, it’s been dominating the last decade or so thanks to TV shows and best-selling books. Don’t expect this trend to change in 2022, either.

Minimalism focuses on simplicity and objectivity. It acts as part lifestyle choice part design trend.

Choosing to have fewer things in your home has many benefits that. When there is clutter in your space, it’s harder for your brain to focus. Clutter can cause poorer working memory and cause your brain to overload.

There are several steps to take once you decide to embrace minimalism in your home.

Only the absolutely necessary furniture should stay. Do you need the clutter-covered coffee or side tables in your living room? when was the last time you sat on the clothing-covered accent chair in your bedroom?

Accent decorations should be kept to a minimum. A simple vase with fresh or high-quality faux flowers will make a beautiful statement in your kitchen or dining room. Your office desk with a single-family photo will be easier to focus at than one covered in stationary and pens.

The focus should be on quality over quantity. Instead of having hundreds of items collecting dust in your home, a minimalist will have just a few things they really love.
