It’s possible that you haven’t paid any attention to your home’s interior in the last two years due to the pandemic. However, 2022 is the year that you can finally start revamping your interior design.
We’ve compiled a list of top interior décor trends of 2022. They’re functional and will induce more joy in your life.
Sustainability: A Norm
By 2022, we all must understand that sustainability is no longer a trend. It’s a new norm that should be encapsulated in interior design. With demand for sustainable practices gaining momentum, you should seek out flexible and environmental-friendly solutions for interior décor.
Based on this concept, here’s what you should be on the lookout for:
1. Biophilia – One With Nature
A term originally curated by Dr. Edward O. Wilson, a Harvard naturalist, biophilia describes our inherent instinct to focus on natural processes and life itself. In simple terms, it means being drawn to nature.
So if you’re redesigning your room or living room this year, make sure your room is in affinity with nature. Staircase gardens, house plants, floral ceilings, and small gardens in balconies are some of the ways you can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home without harming the environment.
2. Bid Farewell to Sharp Edges
2022 has and will see more acceptance of comfy and cocooning upholstery. More people are investing in curbed bar designs, kitchen islands, and sofas than ever. Your home is an escape from the rest of the world. It should instill comfort and calm. Nothing screams calmness more than softer, round curves. Statement pieces such as headboards and sofas can embrace such playful, rounded contours and curved shapes across the home.
3. Statement-Making Fixtures
There’s a consensus on the key role of lighting. It’s no longer only a functional necessity. Lighting may have been reduced to a practical need in the past, but now it is being used to reflect one’s personality.
With beautifully curated yet energy-efficient lighting pieces, you can add richness to your interior décor. The best places to display lighting and create a focal point are kitchens and dining rooms, where much of the entertainment takes place.
Well-made and innovatively-designed lights can transform any room’s ambiance if positioned right. However, make sure you pick lighting fixtures that don’t consume much energy to remain true to sustainable practices.
4. Live With Less
More people are becoming mindful of the environment. 2022 is the year people have finally begun to understand that they can do more with less. Many people may downsize, while others may become more creative with their current homes.
Creating multifunctional spaces is the new trend. For example, some work-from-home employees have turned their garage or living room into a workspace, while others use the backyard as a workout station.
This focus on living with less is inspired by the very concept of sustainability. You can also do more with less by investing in an eco-friendly home. Build your own green home with us.
