New interior design trends are constantly popping up. Some trends tend to last longer than others, with minimalism storming ahead for the last few years. Others are fabulous for one fleeting moment and gone the next. As we head into 2022, we will likely see some of our old favourites creeping back into the interior space. Don’t worry; your minimalist neutral home isn’t outdated just yet.
Here are the top interior trends predicted for 2022 and how you can implement them in your space.
Marie Kondo truly changed the face of interior design with minimalism. Everyone and their distant cousin are talking about minimalism and how to declutter your life. Marie Kondo focuses on only keeping items that bring you joy. Our homes have been scaled back and decluttered to the max. Minimalism has been the face of the interior industry for years now – and it shows no sign of slowing down.
Minimalism is one of the only interior trends that does not require buying something new. You just need to organise your belongings and remove anything that doesn’t need to be there. Simple.
The climate emergency has been declared, and there is a huge demand for sustainability across the board. The interior sector is no different, and many people are looking to incorporate natural materials into the home. Energy-efficient lighting, upcycled materials and natural textures can add a modern twist to your style. Use sustainable materials to brighten up your space and make nature the statement piece.
The pandemic created a demand for multifunctional spaces in the home. The bedroom also became the office, and the living room suddenly became the classroom. In 2022, we are likely to see more multifunctional spaces for remote working, exercise and relaxation. You could have a couch that faces both ways and an open plan kitchen to improve the flow in your space. Or, a bedroom fitted with bespoke wardrobes to create more space for a designated work space.
House plants have been an interior trend for decades. They have been scientifically proven to improve your mood and your home's air quality. What’s not to like?
House plants are going to the next level, and we will likely see more plant walls in 2022 homes. There will be interior walls cascading with hanging plants, cacti and shrubs.
