Our predictions for 2022 architectural and design trends

As we look forward to a hopefully brighter and more positive year ahead, we thought we would discuss our top five trends that we expect to see in 2022 architectural design. 

Focus on sustainability 

Sustainability and eco-friendly living has been on the agenda for most of 2021 and is an area that shows no sign of slowing down. Homeowners, want to reduce as much expenditure as possible on utility bills for environmental benefit but also due to the increasing cost of energy additionally, sustainability also allows homeowners to make a higher return on their investments. 



Herringbone tiling is a trend we began to see make its come back in late 2021 and we expect to continue in popularity in 2022 with a timeless and elegant appearance it is perfect for both floor and wall tiling across all spaces of the home.

Versatile and multi-functional space 

As Covid-19 has a sustained impact in the UK, the need for versatile and multi-functional spaces will continue to be popular in home design. Homeowners need their homes to meet all their demands, even if that means a kitchen has to be easily transformed into a home gym, home office, or creche. 

Neutral/natural colour pallets

In 2022 we expect to see the continuation of a neutral/natural home pallet as people continue to spend more time at home with the government extending working from home. Bold and bright colours don’t create the correct ambience and can easily annoy/distract homeworkers. Neutral/Natural colour pallets open up an array of possibilities for your home and also enable you to experiment with different tones and colours for accents through interchangeable accessories.

Black accents 

In 2022 we expect black to become the new black. Whilst we still expect neutral and natural colour pallets to thrive in 2022, we believe that black accents and hardware will be the exception by adding depth and edge to minimalistic neutral spaces. Examples include black bannisters, black window frames, black doors, black fireplaces and even black appliances.
