Let’s get started!
Whether it’s been inspired by the global pandemic or an increasing awareness of the dangers of overconsumption, minimalism is back in fashion. Specifically, lots of new home builders are constructing homes with minimalism in mind.
For example, they may prioritize open air and lots of free space rather than cluttering living rooms or kitchens with furniture and gadgets. The minimalist trend also extends to color choices; lots of new homeowners are opting for relatively neutral shades like white and gray instead of more bombastic colors like yellow and red.
Home Gardens and Green Spaces
The rise of green living principles in suburban areas is likely to continue into 2022 as one of the most popular interior design trends. Many new home interiors are being designed with spaces explicitly for the development of home gardens, potted plants, and other green spaces.
These choices have a number of advantages. For example, some gardens allow homeowners to produce their own fruits and vegetables, while other green spaces improve the mental health of everyone in the home just by bringing a bit of nature in from the outdoors.
Round Shapes and Soft Lines
Many interior designers are shifting their styles to reflect a more rounded, softer philosophy. Round or feminine-inspired shapes are the go-to choice for many new homeowners and designers; this trend is affecting everything ranging from furniture choices to the shapes of stairs or doorway entrances.
When done properly, round shapes can make homes seem more inviting and comfortable compared to the angular, geometric designs often seen in the past.
Safety in the Kitchen
From fixtures and appliances to decors, kitchen design in 2022 will likely highlight safety. If you are thinking of flooring, you want something easy to sanitize and can withstand high foot traffic. Vinyl flooring for kitchens is a good option because it’s low-maintenance, stylish, and resilient.
Stainless steel countertops that you only used to see in commercial kitchens are likely to be popular in homes in 2022. Spills and bacteria are easy to wipe away on such countertops. Touch-less kitchen faucets and other fixtures with the same technology will be a hit, too.
Lastly, many homes are being built with multi-functionality in mind from the get-go. For example, combined kitchen/dining rooms or guest room/home office. Flexibility is key to creating a space that looks stylish while meeting the constant pressures placed on it.
Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide how the interior of your home looks. Contact us today for more ideas or inspirations and learn about how we can incorporate some of the interior design trends for 2022 into your new home on the Main Line.
