10 Home Renovation Trends You’ll be Seeing a Lot of in 2022

“So many homeowners are inspired by historic and organic references as of late, which pairs with Yelp’s research showing that searches for reclaimed materials are up by 38%. I can see the majority of home projects in 2022 being centered around getting back to the root of materials. For example, stripping down lacquered cabinetry to expose the unfinished walnut underneath or replacing existing countertops for a marble slab with raw edges—there’s something perfectly imperfect about reclaimed materials that help your space really begin to tell a story.”—Jeremiah Brent, interior designer

“Plantlife has been working its way into homes in more creative ways, and we’re seeing innovations happen daily. Most recently, herb fridges have become a new kitchen appliance feature that is not only full of function but also stylish and urban with glass fronts showcasing the greenery bringing an organic touch to kitchen spaces.” —Devin Shaffer, lead interior designer at Decorilla Online Interior Design

“The pandemic created the realization of health, the environment, and being less materialistic. With that being said, reusing furniture, pursuing materials that support the environment, promote recycling, and hold meaning will be popular next year. Not to mention, natural materials like wood, rattan, clay, stone, etc. pair perfectly with any style, color, or material. These textures add warmth and lightness to home decor and make us feel like we’re on vacation in our home since many of us are unable to travel.” —Farris Wu, founder and CEO at DecorMatters

“Awareness of our environment and of Mother Nature makes us conscious of our carbon footprint and how we affect our planet. Using sustainable materials and lighting that consumes less energy brings less guilt in how we manage our planet and, thankfully, they look good too!” —Jhoiey Ramirez, principal of the Sycamore Collective

Connecting with nature

“Homeowners have been requesting more natural light in their homes through bigger window and door openings for years, and that’s a trend clearly continuing into 2022. 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
