Whether you’re looking to re-decorate your property in order to boost value, make a speedy sale or simply improve your existing living space, there are plenty of cost-effective ways to transform your home – but what are the most popular DIY decorating trends of 2022 so far?
Unique bathroom design
While sleek and minimal aesthetics have been the go-to bathroom decoration trend for years now, 2022 has seen more homeowners going ‘all out’ when it comes to designing their bathrooms.
Whether it’s incorporating vivid colours, split-level flooring, which adds the illusion of extra space and creates sectioned ‘zones’, or space-saving vertical radiators, don’t be afraid to go with interesting and unique design features when re-decorating your bathroom space. This not only improves your everyday experience of using the bathroom but also adds considerable value to your property if you’re thinking of selling.
Comforting kitchen space
In the same way that the trend for bathroom design has moved away from the cold minimalism so prevalent in the last decade, more homeowners are now choosing to make their kitchen spaces more homely and inviting. You can make your kitchen more comforting by incorporating soft fabrics (think towels and tea cosies), colourful, fragrant flowers and natural materials into the space – consider choosing richly-coloured wooden kitchen cabinets over dark, minimal storage drawers.
Neutral, natural bedrooms
Seeing as greens, blues and neutral colour tones have been proven to aid relaxation, improved wellbeing and a better night’s sleep, it seems only natural that we’re seeing more bedrooms designed with a natural, neutral vibe in 2022. From your choice of bedding and carpeting to furnishings and the colour of paint on the walls, try to go with neutral tones to foster a more tranquil sleeping environment.
Rustic and homely living rooms
This year has seen a growing trend for incorporating nature-inspired textures, shapes and colours into living room design. As the primary space for socialising and relaxing in the home, it’s essential that your living room is up to scratch.
Much like your bedroom, one of the easiest ways to add extra comfort to the space is by incorporating natural materials and neutral colours.
2022 has also been a year in which homeowners have started to place more of an emphasis on authenticity and heritage when picking out fixtures, fittings and furnishings for their properties – popular choices include pre-loved flowerpots, antique clocks and textured rectangular coffee tables.
