As we have spent a few months in the new year it is time to start looking at the best interior design trends that will rule 2022. Now that those two quite difficult years are behind us, we can all agree that everyone’s homes should be decorated the way they will thrive in space. It is essential that you are creating a home where you will be comfortable and productive, so here are some trends that you can take as inspiration.

Main Interior Design Trends 2022

During this year the biggest emphasis is on natural and sustainable elements. The aesthetic aspect of homes is becoming more covetable and refined. This year we are seeing a merge of many different styles such as natural, retro with a dash of Zen elements in the trends. And the biggest thing in 2022 is setting up your perfect home office along with keeping all the spaces neat and clean. 

Small and Multifunctional Spaces

Because we have been dealing with a pandemic and working from home, a lot of people had to sacrifice a room and dedicate it to a study room or an office. But as it looks like the option to work from home is not going to change any time soon, it is very important that everyone knows how to utilize a small space and make it more multifunctional. It is important that you are rethinking the way of living and think about the functionality of certain rooms while still creating something that will be comfortable for you and suit everyone’s needs. As you will have to work from home as well as kids will have to do school from home, multifunctionality is key to all the designs. People are thinking of different creative ways they can find usage for every single nook and cranny in their homes. One of the most popular things people are adding are floating sleeves, platforms as well as ladders that will give them more storage and use of different spaces. Another very popular thing is furniture that is acting as a room divider, so there is some privacy while still having the ability to use that piece, rather than it just being something that is dividing the space. 


As there are more and more one-person households in 2022, people are also opting for smaller spaces rather than large ones. It is mainly because they are making a conscious decision. A smaller living space means more sustainable living. 

Retro/Vintage Vibes 

If you love the look of a retro interior, this year it is all about adding retro and vintage vibes to your home. The thing about this type of trend is that a lot of people don’t know where to find things that will give them that vintage touch. Make sure that you are visiting your local fairs, markets as well as antique stores. They will usually have a wide range of vintage and retro pieces. But if you don’t have any luck there, you can also find vintage and retro pieces on online furniture stores as well as in estate sales. Another thing that a lot of people are doing is choosing lesser-known brands as they are less expensive and easier to come by, yet they will still give you that look that you are going for. 

Nature Is All Around Us

Because we have spent so much time inside during these past few years, nature-inspired designs are one of the biggest trends for 2022. This year is breaking authentic greenery into everyone’s homes. Adding plants to your home interior will not only complement things around your home but they will also make your air crisp clean. But the key to designing your home with natural elements is choosing ones that can actually survive in your home and look good. If you are new at plants, make sure that you are choosing plants that are a bit easier to take care of such as monsteras, snake plants, fiddle leaf plants, succulents, ivy and cacti. If you are not confident in your plant care skills, or you know that you don’t get much sunlight in your home, a great way to add some natural vibes is by adding vases of flower arrangements, branches for a rustic vibe or just a few goat willow branches to spice things up. 

Decorate With Natural Materials

As we have mentioned above, natural elements are the way to go in 2022, they are the most popular home decor trend. More and more people are opting to decorate their homes with natural materials, which will also help with the whole sustainability trend. Adding decor and furniture pieces that are made out of natural materials will complement the whole nature wave and give your home that natural look. When you are going for a nature-inspired home make sure that you are choosing items that have their materials ethically sourced as that will not only be more sustainable but will give your home the look that you are going for. There are many places where you can buy furniture online that will state that their materials and products are ethically made. 

Biophilic Designs Are Very Popular

Following along with the nature vibes, biophilia is the human desire to make a connection with nature. A lot of people will go for biophilic prints on their walls as well as wallpapers that have the same print. There are many different connections that you can make in your home that will bring you closer to nature.
