Where are Home Décor Trends Headed in 2022?

May 7, 2022

 It’s a new year, and that makes it a great time to freshen up your home. Heading into the next 12 months with a fresh outlook is on the priority list for many people, after the Covid-19 pandemic took a huge toll on the enjoyment anyone could take from the previous two years. 

Taking a look at your home décor and evaluating where you may want to make changes is not only a chance to reset and refresh your living space, but also a fun and creative activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. 

If you’ve never taken much of an interest in your home décor before, you’ll discover that it’s a great way to express yourself and project how you feel about the world on to the space around you, helping to establish a deeper connection with your home and satisfaction with your living environment. 

Just to make the deal sweeter, it’s a fulfilling hobby in its own right. Read on to find out more about the fashionable home décor styles in 2022.

Curved furniture 

According to all predictions, curved furniture is going to have a bumper year in 2022. For most households, especially those that are lean on space, having square furniture is a way to maximize the space available in the building, with fixtures hugging the walls to open up the distinct areas of the home as much as possible. 

However, with modern design and manufacturing capabilities continuing to improve year on year, it has become much more viable to create furniture with curves in a time that’s profitable.

There are notable benefits to curved furniture—curved designs step away from the minimalist, standard nature of square furniture and add expression into the home, while the softer, sculpted tones evoke feelings of relaxation, and redefine the spaces we are used to.

Vintage and Upcycling

With so many products manufactured every day, there is a huge amount of second-hand, vintage, or upcycling shopping that can be done to reduce both costs and carbon footprint, as well as have fun in the meantime.

The climate is on everyone’s conscience, and reducing the products we use helps to avoid pollution and discourage large-scale production, which is a huge factor.

Whether you’re looking to build new desktop workstations, dining tables, or a chest of drawers, all of these items and their respective materials can be found online and in second-hand stores everywhere.

Taking inspiration from nature 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, almost everyone was stuck inside for a considerable amount of time—and with all but a few essential services closed, people had to make use of nature and the natural world in order to pass the time and stay sane.

It’s understandable, then, that in 2022 people now want to bring the essence of nature and greenery into their homes—especially as many found new connections with nature, and discovered the stress-relieving properties and beauty of being immersed in the natural world.

Plants have always been a welcome addition to many homes, but earthy tones, natural shapes, and bringing the outdoors indoors are accompanying them this time.
