Underlying shifts behind the movement of interior design trends

As you may have understood by yourself, there are a few broad thought processes behind interior design and home decor trend shifts.

Here are some of them.

More ‘efficient’ design

This is not ‘efficient’ as in ‘useful’.

This is ‘efficient’ as in ‘design value’.

In other words, each design accessory or step must add deep value.


Eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle that minimizes the impact on nature is a thought that will continue into 2022.

And this will have an impact on home design and decor.

With that being said, let’s take a look at some home interior design trends and see whether they will continue in 2022.

Open floor room design

An open floor room design is a type of house plan in which one large room functions as multiple rooms.

Different corners or sides are assigned different roles, and typically are in sight of each other, that is there are no dividers between them.

This is a home design trends that might be OUT in 2022, with people wanting more privacy in individual rooms.

Furniture buying will become more selective

People will look for more value in their furniture.

Value can be either aesthetic or ergonomic, or both.

Buying furniture simply on the strength of brands might reduce, and there might be more demand for bespoke furniture design.

Open shelf trend

Open shelves have been wildly popular for a long time, not just in 2021.

They’ve been a lot more popular than use-specific cabinets and other such storage furniture.

However, along with value-based furniture buying, users will look for deep value in storage furniture as well.

That means it is likely open shelves will see a reduction in demand, replaced by specific types of cabinets and such.

Neutral colours

Neutral colours like white and grey have been popular for a long time.

However, for many places, like cabinets, accent walls, and kitchens, neutral colours, especially grey, are losing popularity.

People are looking for more energetic colours, like orange and yellow instead.

Floral patterns

Especially after the pandemic, people are looking for more mental peace and joy in their homes.

And what can be more peace-inspiring than a nice floral pattern?

You can easily go on this trend by getting floral patterned wallpaper.
