The home improvement trend picked up tremendously after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and is showing no signs of stopping in 2022. As people continue to spend more time at home, they want their house to be a comfortable place for them to live, work, and play. Thinking about renovating your home in 2022? Consider these popular home upgrades:
Not-So-Open Floor Plans
Previous interior design trends focused on creating as much open space in a house as possible, combining the kitchen, living room and dining room. With the family in the house more often, the need for separation is more apparent than ever. Homeowners are looking at creative ways of dividing up large rooms, including adding walls for privacy or installing glass doors or dividers to block out sounds.
This year, homeowners will upgrade their kitchens to achieve a more customized look. Nature-inspired colors for cabinets and gold or brass hardware are on-trend for 2022, as well as double islands and marble countertops. Large windows over the counterspace and skylights above islands will help to bring in desired natural light for these new designs.
Eco-friendly is the name of the game for many home renovations in 2022. From solar panels to energy-efficient appliances and windows to sustainable flooring, homeowners are doing what they can to help the environment. Don’t forget about the little fixes too; applying new weatherstripping, installing LED lightbulbs, and composting are also sustainable upgrades!
Sunrooms and Outdoor Spaces
The desire to connect with nature will drive many renovation projects this coming year. Outdoor living rooms, kitchens, and lounge areas are popular upgrades that allow homeowners to spend more time outside. Sunroom additions also offer a great view of the outdoors and will continue to be sought after by homeowners.
For many, working from home is here to stay. After almost two years of telework, homeowners are ready to upgrade their home offices in a big way. Additions include new doors (for peace and quiet), windows (for natural light on Zoom calls) and cabinetry (for storing your work essentials). Now is also the time to customize the home office with a fresh coat of paint and personalized accessories.
