As we enter the year 2022 we’re still spending a lot of time at home, with many of us now working from home indefinitely or adopting a hybrid approach that takes us into the office some days and working remotely on the other days. With all these changes in recent years most of us are ready for a fresh start, which means home renovation projects are on the rise.
A new year means new remodeling trends mixed with trends from recent years. For those who are looking for home upgrades and want to stay in the know about the home renovation trends for 2022, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular features of home remodels we will be seeing this coming year.
Sustainability isn’t a new trend, but it will continue to be a popular home renovation request. Eco-friendly features and materials are at the forefront of home renovations as homeowners become more conscious about the environment and future generations. Homeowners are adding green features like solar panels, opting for sustainable building materials and doing their part to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels by investing in energy saving home features.
Let’s face it, we need more space at home than ever before. In the past couple years, our homes have turned into home offices, home gyms, virtual classrooms and multi-functional work and living spaces. Home renovations for 2022 will shift less away from open floor plans and more towards multipurpose rooms that have a dedicated space for each purpose we need them for.
Home office additions are becoming more popular as people get tired of make shifting their kitchen islands and dining room tables into home offices. More people work from their home offices now than ever before, so they need a comfortable, productive and dedicated space to do so.
Outdoor living spaces have become an extension of the interior of the home. We’ve seen a surge in homeowners who want to renovate their outdoor living spaces to become more functional and this will continue in 2022. When the pandemic first started, many people opted to entertain outdoors in order to socially distance. The pandemic also caused many people to get outside and spend time outside instead of being cooped up inside all the time.
Reclaimed materials will be used as both building materials and for interior design in 2022, including reclaimed wood and stone. Homeowners are becoming more eco-conscious, and genuinely care about the materials used for renovations and where they come from. Reducing carbon footprints are a priority for many homeowners who would rather use materials with less environmental impact.
