In 2022, the design community will be faced with the final, looming push of the pandemic. The crisis has already changed how we live and decorate our homes paired with our whole lifestyle, including technologies we invest in, the products we buy for entertainment, the way we travel and work.
The new year hasn’t yet mentioned its plans for the future; it has definitely given the world some perspective. Design trends, therefore, have taken on a new flavor than they used to; and customers have become more comfortable with non-traditional materials and textures. Post corona affected the residential real estate industry: people’s needs and priorities have changed.
Give space some space
Yes, you read that correctly. According to a survey done in the realty franchise sector, more and more interior designers are being asked by their clients to expand their homes and create space while retaining their aesthetics.
The idea of minimalism comprising the use of necessary, sustainable, and durable items over luxurious and high maintenance artifacts has taken over and brought back the traditional approach when it comes to interiors.
Sustainability all the way
Due to the post-pandemic period, many people have learned to respect nature, be environmentally conscious, and limit their carbon footprint.
As a result, the desire for green space and technology to construct sustainable housing projects has grown in importance and prominence.
The use of organic and natural materials and textures rather than those destructive to the environment is rising.
Change the colors
Bright and flashy colors made way for the more earthy palette while complimenting the green and natural aura.
So be ready to discover the beauty in the subtlety of sea blue, pastels, and caramels that are waiting to daunt the walls, giving it a warmer ambiance.
Keep it natural
Gone are the days when you had to spend a lot of money on pricey coverings and skirtings to hide the exposed areas of your room. Instead, the latest style is to leave them with defined boundaries that complement their inherent beauty.
Space is always an issue when it comes to homes and living spaces. This involves the creation of utility furniture that can be folded and unfolded according to the needs of the residents.
Because of technological advancements, it is now feasible to transform conventional furniture into contemporary items that take up less room.
Storage space revamped
The only image that springs to mind when it comes to storage space is crammed rooms packed with discarded objects that we don’t want to throw away.
Residents, fortunately, are more accepting of the idea of decluttering their houses and using the storage room as an entertainment space or a quiet private place to spend time alone.
Move from 2D to 3D
3D design and art will be the flavor of the year, adding intrigue and mysticism to the interiors that have been missing for a long from the living space.
