The big objective for interior design in 2022 will be to reclaim spaces around the home that have been adapted to home working.
There’s set to be a renewed interest in bringing the natural world indoors and a drive to decorate homes more consciously.
These ideas will then spill over into colour palettes and design ideas - so what should we be looking out for in 2022?
Turning bedrooms into a peaceful sanctuary
Bedrooms have had to endure a lot over the past couple of years, doubling up as offices in some cases as working from home became the norm.
But 2022 could be the year for reclaiming that bedroom space and turning it back into a peaceful sanctuary.
Bedrooms are needed for recuperation and rest, and interior design trends will reflect that in the next 12 months.
Quality of sleep is paramount, so decluttering with sliding wardrobe doors, choosing soothing colours and creating an inviting space with cushions and furniture will all be popular choices in 2022.
DIY and upcycling
The goal of creating a more ‘mindful’ home will also be high on priority lists in the next 12 months, so DIY and upcycling will be popular once again.
People are already sewing and making over old outfits, as well as creating garden furniture from wooden pallets - and those trends are set to continue.
A recent Blinds Direct survey has revealed over two thirds of homeowners are choosing to complete a variety of home improvement tasks themselves.
That kind of motivation can also be applied to our sliding wardrobe doors, which can be fitted quick and easily at home by even the most inexperienced DIYers.
Shades of green
Colour trends are constantly changing, but keeping in with the theme of bringing the outside in and creating a more natural space, green is set to be the colour of choice for 2022.
The idea comes from people spending a lot of time indoors over the past 12 months, so experiencing a more ‘natural’ colour that is often associated with wildlife is what will be desirable.
This can also be applied to our sliding doors, which come in a huge variety of colours and combinations - including green glass.
Lighting has been moving increasingly towards a decorative object in recent years, and 2022 will be no different.
The ideal light will be equal parts functional and fashionable, and statement lighting allows people to spotlight some of the best features of their homes.
Searches for 70’s lighting have increased 344% in 2021, whilst searches for sculptural, decorative and vintage lighting are also on the up.
And you don’t need us to tell you about the benefit of mirrored sliding doors when it comes to lighting.
Opening up the room and letting light reflect will only create the illusion of more space, as well as help create a calmer and more peaceful setting - depending on your colour choice.
