The new year is a great time to start fresh—whether that means finally organizing your closet and decluttering your kitchen, or taking things a step further by updating the aesthetic of your home. To get a sense of the top design trends that will dominate our living spaces in 2022, we asked several trusted architects and interior designers for their predictions, and also gathered insights from recently published industry surveys. 

As it turns out, many of the top home design trends of 2022 are iterations of concepts we’ve seen in recent years, but it’s not due to a lack of creativity. Instead, it’s likely because we’re continuing to lean in to our personal tastes and needs. “We are living in the future where individuality and confidence rule,” says interior designer Andee Hess, principal of Osmose Design, an award-winning interior design studio in Portland, Oregon.

Jean Lin, founder and curator of Colony, a New York City design cooperative, gallery, and studio that represents independent furniture, lighting, textile, and object designers, shares a similar outlook. “There is a movement against the big-box retailers that pushes back on the homogenization of our homes and design in general,” Lin says. “We are settling for what’s readily available less and less—and seeking out our most expressive and genuine lives at home.”

Read on for the top home design trends that architecture and interior design experts have seen steadily emerge—and those they expect will fade as we move into 2022.

Better Homes & Garden’s Top 8 Interior Design Trends for 2022

By Jessica Bennett with Better Homes & Gardens

Let’s put a bow on 2021, our second year of pandemic living. As many elements of daily life began to ease back toward normalcy—bolstered by vaccines—we started to venture out into the world and gather again with family and friends. But for many, our homes remained our center of existence.

The desire for comfort and stability drove many of our decorating and design choices this year, and these same themes will continue to dominate interior design trends in 2022, experts say. “The last couple years have given so many of us the opportunity to reflect on who we are and how we want to live,” says interior designer Joshua Smith. “Our homes should inspire our mind and nourish our spirit, and that can be expressed in so many various ways for different people.”

To determine what styles, colors, and materials we can expect to see more of in the coming year, we tapped a variety of interior designers and industry pros for their expert insights. These are the top 8 home design trends experts say are about to be everywhere.
