5 Renovation Trends for 2022
The start of a new year typically brings change to our lives; we start that new diet, or finally take up yoga. We reflect on our goals and vow to create better habits and get rid of bad ones... in short, we set out to transform into the best version of ourselves and live our best life! For many people it is also a time to refresh and renovate their homes- and with 2020 and 2021 forcing people to stay home more the ever, 2022 looks to be the year in which interior design takes on a larger role in helping people bring their dream spaces to life. Following are 8 trends to look out for this year.
NO.1 HOME OFFICE MAKEOVER
(Adorned Homes by Katie Kurtz)
The home office has never seen as much action as it has in the past 2 years and this trend doesn't seem to be going away any time soon with people preferring to work from home and many companies adopting home/office hybrid schedules. Finding the right spot in your home to create the perfect office may involve moving things around and rethinking the use of certain areas. This design by Katie Kurtz is a gorgeous example of how she turned her own dining room into an office. There are other options of course, such as the guest room, or perhaps the garage- whatever your particular needs it will be important to choose a space that will be functional for you and still flow with your home.

NO. 2 OUTDOOR GLOW UPS
The end of 2021 saw an uptick in people transforming their outdoor spaces which is expected to continue into 2022. Creating areas that are similar to indoor spaces but suited for the outdoors is going to remain a big trend this year. That means we will see covered areas with gorgeous layouts and furniture that is more reminiscent of an indoor space yet durable and weather resistant. We will also see more outdoor dining spaces, T.V. areas, pools and fireplaces.
NO.3 TEXTURE TEXTURE TEXTURE
More than ever clients are looking for dimension and visual interest in their home so that means texture in everything from finishes to fabrics will be big this year. Textured wallpaper, faux finishes, raw metals, panels, will all take center stage as people are looking to express their personality and style in their homes
NO. 4 BOLD
We are going to see more COLOR than in the past few years, with white and grey taking a back seat to bolder colors. The popularity of wallpaper will also usher in bolder looks as people are opting for fun, colorful, elegant, sophistication in their homes.
NO. 5 SIDE HUSTLE SPACES
The growing number of entrepreneurs has people looking to the spare bedroom as a flexible space for their side hustle. Whether you are creating, promoting products, or shooting influencer videos the aesthetics of this space will serve as the backdrop for personal branding.
