Some of the nation’s top designers have compiled the design trends they expect are on the horizon for 2022. Read more to see what 2022 home design trends our team at Corken + Company thinks will be popular.
We are seeing the effects of our ‘buy it and throw it away’ consumerism on our planet. People may soon realize that developing a personal, lasting style, is not only unique, but good for the environment.
Colors + Prints
After more of a subdued few years, in terms of fabrics, we see people embracing fun colors and unique prints in their everyday furniture. Colorful printed fabrics, custom upholstered sofas, chairs and window treatments are a fierce way to bring personality into the space.
With the busy lives that we all live, paring down the amount of stuff to deal with in the home will feel enticing. Prioritizing our important, functional and high-designed pieces is the best way to feel more free and in control.
Bringing the Outdoors In
More people are enhancing their outdoor living spaces, which means more stylish outdoor-rated furniture! More intentionally designed outdoor living spaces that don’t sacrifice on style and expand the family’s living and entertaining space in the home.
Children continue to drive design spaces and homework is not going away. As the world turns, people may continue to opt-out of full classroom settings and opt-in for more private spaces. As a result, they have created ‘mini corporate offices’ for their smallest bosses. Also, these private classrooms have interactive smart boards, prerequisite hi-speed wifi and plenty of plug-in outlets.
Not to be confused with what is formerly known as a ‘basement’ — these [spaces] are not your parents’ basements. These spaces now have full kitchens, theater tiered seating, games, home gyms and Golf Simulators. In addition, these spaces allow for more family fun and safer entertaining with small groups.
We believe that people will continue to seek out quiet, thoughtful spaces within their homes and when space allows for it, they will dedicate the purpose. To do this, you might add in a massage table or a yoga mat too.
