Keep It Fresh: 3 Interior Design Trends for the New Year

Where do you spend most of your time? For many of us, “at home” has become the resounding response to this question. Given this, families have come to view their abodes with a fresh perspective. In today’s world, a house is a home, a place where we do it all: spend time together, work, eat, exercise, learn, grow. This new status quo is causing an overhaul in the interior design landscape. Read on to discover the budding trends for 2022.

Double-duty spaces

Sure, there was a time in the not-so-distant past when it was common that a spare bedroom might function as a part-time home office. But these days, spaces throughout the home are expected — nay, required — to pull double duty. The kitchen island is for eating and studying. The dining room is for work meetings by day and family meals by night. A finished basement serves as a quiet getaway, entertainment zone, or home gym. “As people spend more time in their homes, they expect the spaces to work harder for them,” says interior designer Timothy Corrigan. Home builders like Celebrity Custom Homes know this and are helping families design their layouts to maximize every room’s potential.

Color, color, color

As we spend more time at home, the clean-line, minimalistic vibe of all-things-white has begun to lose its luster. A move toward browns and natural textures has taken its place. Browns of every shade are being embraced for their warmth, and leathers and nature-inspired surfaces, too, are finding favor. Bold accents are likewise on the rise in popularity.

A focus on outdoor spaces 

Gone are the days when outdoor living spaces were a priority only in the warmer summer months. Patios, porches, and other inviting outdoor living spaces offer fresh air, a connection with the outdoors, and a place to safely gather with friends and family. Designers and builders are embracing this evolution of indoor-outdoor living spaces and see the trend strengthening in the future.
