Top 5 Modern Interior Design Trends

Whether you’re planning to sell your home right away or you want a home interior makeover that’ll give you a reason to stay in your home, here are some top design trends for your major rooms.

1. Kitchens Go Dark for an Ultra-Rich Look

The kitchen, which is arguably the heart of the home, has been dominated by dazzling whites and other sunny hues for years now. The new sought-after shades for cabinetry feature colour – deep and dark hues of bold colours matched with accents of walnut or natural stone. Cabinets that are painted dark blues, greens, and charcoal give kitchens a super-luxurious look. Take this trend to the extreme, and you’ll see all-black kitchens with sleek white countertops coupled with wood accents for a sleek and luxurious home chef’s hangout.

2. Bathrooms Warm Up for Tech

Splashes of warm whites and greys make bathrooms glow. You’ll see more matte black plumbing fixtures in Spring 2022. Natural stone and organic materials are also making way for more rustic feel for bathrooms. Also making a comeback is bold wallpaper in the bathroom! Have fun and choose something which embodies your personality. Modern bathrooms feature more integrated technology than ever, for example, vanity mirrors double as TV’s and phone screens that allow you to get the latest traffic and weather updates while you floss. Heated floors and towel bars make for a luxurious spa experience in your own bathroom.

3. Bedrooms Go Soft and Sustainable

Simple, clean-line designs are in. Designers will replace those straight-backed desks, chairs, and beds of conventional minimalist designs with softer curves and cushions. Natural and organic materials are in – sherpa and boucle to name a couple. You’ll see upholstered headboards on beds and fixtures that are made of sustainable materials. Cork board wall paneling, bold wallpapers, and vintage rugs are prominent aspects.

4. Lived-in Looks for Living Rooms Prevail

Living rooms are becoming more relaxed spaces. You’ll see these spaces outfitted with shiplap or faux wood ceiling beams that offer a rustic look. Designers will use vintage furniture in these spaces that appeal to the modern homeowner’s desire to live more sustainably. Those pieces will be accented with new furnishings that feature modern materials and textures. Many home buyers still prefer living rooms that are separated from other rooms in a house over open-space versions when they’re available. These buyers want living rooms that aren’t affected by the noise and smells of nearby kitchens and dining rooms.


5. Creation Work Spaces

The current trend is that designers expect more homeowners to ask them to create private nooks where they can work at home and not in the office. Home offices have gained popularity during the pandemic as make-shift kitchen office spaces don’t work for extended periods of in-home work. Office nooks should be positioned away from noisy areas of the home and away from distractions. Adding some plants and task lighting can help with concentration. You don’t need a lot of room to create these workspaces. You can transform the space under your staircase or near a large window into an efficient and private workspace.
