5 Interior Design Trends To Look Out For In 2022


Every year, homeowners research the latest home décor trends to incorporate into their homes in order to create stylish spaces worthy of praise. Are you planning to renovate your home this 2022? We’ve compiled a list of key interior design trends to keep an eye on in order to inspire you with interior design ideas.


1. Basic Colours

The use of earthy and grounded shades found in nature was highly popular in 2021. This will continue as we enter into 2022. Muted colours in a neutral colour palette, such as beige, creams, whites, browns and light greys will continue to dominate the interior design industry. These colours create bright and airy interiors that are ideal for a relaxing day at home. 


Muted Color Interior Design Idea


If muted colours like the ones mentioned above don’t tickle your fancy, consider incorporating Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2022 – Very Peri or 2021’s favourite colour – Classic Blue.

2. Round Shapes

Arched walls were popular in suburban homes throughout the 1980s and 1990s. This interior design idea would have been considered out of date in the early 2000s, but it is making a big comeback.


Round Shapes and Arched Walls Interior Design Idea


Today, softness and feminine forms such as round shapes and fluid lines are in vogue. These elements saw a rise in popularity in 2021 and you can’t go wrong with incorporating them into your architectural structures, furniture, and home décor. 


Strict and straight lines give the appearance of a cold and rigid home interior. As a result, adding fluid lines and round shapes to homes can help soften them and make them appear more welcoming. 


3. Nature

The use of natural elements was one of the rising trends in 2021. When nature is incorporated into a home’s interior design, it creates a soothing and peaceful atmosphere that helps calm your body and mind, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalised. They add so much joy to your life that they may remain popular for many years to come. 


Interior Design Idea of Using Nature inside a Home


The addition of house plants, wildflowers, or pampas grass is the simplest way to bring nature indoors. They not only add a touch of greenery to your home, but they also help to refresh the air in your home for better air quality. 


You can also incorporate natural materials, such as wood, marble and rattan to add a touch of nature into your home. 


4. Home Office

In 2020, the pandemic introduced a new way of working to the world: working from home. When we were first sent home to work away from others, many of us made do with the kitchen countertop, dining table, or sofa, thinking that it would all be over soon. But, two years later, these work-from-home arrangements are still in place and aren’t cutting it because they cause problems like body aches from poor sitting posture.

Fully equipped home workspaces are becoming a trend in 2022, and they will be extremely helpful to many of us. Get yourself a comfortable set of home office furniture, including ergonomic chairs and adjustable tables, to boost your productivity and stay on-trend.


5. Combined Spaces

Combined spaces are created by combining rooms into multi-functional spaces, such as combining a kitchen, living room, and dining room into a space that can function as all three. Gone are the days where we all had separate kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms and dining areas.


Combined Spaces as an Interior Design Idea


This interior design idea will help homeowners achieve stylish yet highly space-saving and functional rooms without overcrowding their homes with furniture, especially in an era when flats in Singapore are getting smaller. 


Not only is this concept a result of smaller home sizes, but the pandemic has also transformed our homes into places where we exercise, work, sleep, and play in order to stay safe and away from others.


There you have it, five interior design trends to help you gain some interior design ideas for your own home. Whether you plan to follow the trend or deviate from the norm, the interior of your home is ultimately for you to enjoy.
