To help get those home remodeling projects ideating, here's a look at a few trends we anticipate seeing in 2022. 

Going Green, Literally and Figuratively

Green is one of the highest trending home colors for 2022. From deep emerald to soft sage, we are seeing green on walls, cabinetry, and doors. It’s the perfect color to make your space feel both fresh and comforting. And in the figurative sense, we are seeing a higher level of awareness for the environment with homeowners choosing to use reclaimed and sustainable materials, lighting, appliances, and outlets that consume less energy, and more natural materials like wood and stone.

Investments in the Home Office will Continue

Home offices will continue to be in high demand as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect work environments. In some cases, people have made the permanent transition to working remotely which calls for dedicated office spaces with desks, built-ins, tech solutions, wet bars, and more. Maximizing the design of this space can aide in concentration, motivation, and productivity.


Enhanced Outdoor Spaces and Features

Once we get through the CNY winter, we’re all eager to spend as much time as we can outside. We will continue to see interest in expanding outdoor spaces with decks, patios, pools, water features, and dining space.

“Homeowners are also investing in outdoor rooms. Pools, water features, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and extensive seating and dining areas are high on wish lists. Materials are more organic and natural, such as ipe and travertine. Outdoor kitchens will feature commercial-style grills, refrigerators, and wine coolers. Indoor rooms opening up to terraces with a series of French doors or doors that fold back is another way to connect with the outside.” - Jean Brownhill, founder of Sweeten

Enhancing Natural Light

Light is always a coveted resource in the home, and we continuously see homeowners requesting more natural light through bigger window and door openings.

“People are increasing the natural light in their homes and creating a more direct connection with nature by adding doors where there were once windows, or adding larger windows for a greater sense of connection to outside. We’ve noticed homeowners embarking on remodeling work to replace more traditional patio doors with large scenic versions to create a connection between interior and exterior spaces for more seamless transitions and a sense of freedom.” - Christine Marvin, chief marketing and experience officer at Marvin
