Top Design Trends Expected For 2022

Our own homes have increased in value recently both monetarily and figuratively. As more time is being spent at home from imposed pandemic changes and a larger number of people working from home design trends are becoming more personal. 

“It makes sense as people have gone from having to be home to wanting to be at home in an environment that expresses their personalities and individual tastes,” says Laurel Vernazza, home design expert at The Plan Collection. “Since no one could travel, homeowners had to bring those experiences into their homes.”

According to The Plan Collection’s team here are the predictions of home design for 2022. 

Hardwoods With Patterns

It may be a throwback to years ago when we used to see patterns in hardwood flooring we could see return. Plan to see patterns, different tones or even two-tone inlays for some creative interest. 

Kitchens With Color

We have already begun seeing this trend starting recently where kitchens are getting more daring with color. Nevermind the all white kitchen as homeowners are looking to “spice things up” by adding interest with color. Expect to see more painted cabinets of color coupled with countertops of different materials. It is a fast emerging trend to even mix countertop materials with sometimes featuring an alternate material on the island. 

Buildings With Curves

Curves add more interest and character to a building’s architectural aesthetics. We expect to see more barrel-vaulted ceilings, arched entryways and openings, curved walkways and even curvy furniture as accents. 

Black Accents

On the inside of homes expect to see black appliances, accents and even entryway doors. On the exterior expect to see more black window frames and doors. 


Expect to see an increased demand for high-quality and unique antique furniture as people make their decorating choices. “While people are traveling less, they have more expendable income so creative expressions of personality infuse interior design. Furnishings, rugs, art, and paint reflect past travel destinations or future dream locations that bring this idea home.” designers say.
