Top 6 Interior Design Trends for 2022

The Kitchen Master | December 29, 2021

With a new year comes new interior design trends to inspire your kitchen and bathroom remodeling plans. At The Kitchen Master, our team has helped homeowners keep their interior spaces on-trend through our unparalleled craftsmanship since 1977.

One of the strongest themes we expect to see in 2022 is a focus on comfort, sustainability, and functionality. The following are just some of the ways you can incorporate these elements into your next remodeling project:

Bring the Outdoors In

Finding opportunities to unify indoor and outdoor living spaces will be a top trend in 2022. Bringing the outdoors in can take many different forms: It can be as simple as choosing a neutral color palette with natural woods and warm browns or as complex as creating an indoor-outdoor dining area for you and your guests to enjoy.

Large, unobstructed windows that allow for plenty of natural light will be particularly important for achieving this aesthetic as you decorate your surroundings with plenty of plants that need sunlight.

Multifunctional, Multipurpose Living Spaces

Following the 2020 global pandemic, 2021 saw a sharpened focus on multifunctional design and comfort. This trend isn’t going anywhere in the new year as homeowners continue to find ways to maximize both comfort and utility across their living spaces.

Whether it’s a custom kitchen island that doubles as an office desk or custom shelving in your family room’s media center, multifunctionality is a must.

Minimalist Design Remains Popular

With more time spent at home than ever before, it’s become critical for homeowners to keep their minds at ease by decluttering. As a result, minimalist design has seen even more growth in popularity.

Bring minimalism to your kitchen or bathroom remodel by choosing one or two main materials for your cabinets, flooring, and countertops, such as wood or steel. Introduce different textures and patterns through contrasting surfaces to bring interest.

Sustainable & Organic Materials

Eco-conscious design will be of particular importance moving forward, with many homeowners moving away from specific materials, such as plastic. In its place, we’ll see more glass.

Including energy-efficient appliances in your remodel will also be key for bringing more modern, eco-friendly amenities to your home.

Soft & Curvy Design

Comfort is key in the post-pandemic world, so incorporating soft lines and edges into your kitchen or bathroom will lend itself to feelings of peace and serenity while at home.

Consider softened edges for your countertops or a standalone clawfoot tub in your master suite to evoke feelings of calm and comfort.

Smart Furniture & Storage

As we mentioned earlier, multifunctional design is on-trend for 2022 — and this theme extends to the design and functionality of your furniture. Smart home and furniture features are in increasingly high demand, ranging from accent tables that double as house speakers to remote-controlled shelving that slides open to reveal a projector screen. Including custom cabinetry and shelving solutions in your home remodeling project can help make your living space smarter and easier to manage.
