What will our living rooms look like in 2022?

27th January 2022

If you’re a design enthusiast, one of the most exciting aspects of going into a new year is getting to grips with the latest trends.

From a refreshed palette of colours to innovations in construction, who knows what awaits you! This year, it looks as though the living room is ready to take centre stage. So, get ready to refresh your space with sofa covers and a new lick of paint to ensure you stay on trend in 2022.

Pantone colour of the year

Pantone consistently leads the way in popular colours. This year, they’re putting the spotlight on Veri Perri, a member of the blue family, to create a gentle, joyous atmosphere. Inspiring creativity and joy with undertones of red and violet, it’s undoubtedly a tone to pay attention to this year.

Vintage maintains popularity

Over the past few years, we’ve seen an increase in vintage pieces. People want to supplement their new items with second-hand, vintage finds as we all become more eco-conscious and sustainable. The current issues with the supply chain are only amplifying this, and vintage is set to be bigger than ever in 2022! So, if you have a bureau from your great grandfather in your loft or an old mirror collecting dust, now’s the time to take them out and give them a new lease of life.

Upcycling increases sustainability

Alongside vintage pieces, another way that people are becoming more eco-friendly is through upcycling. This is the trend of taking a second-hand or old item and redecorating it. For example, you may paint an old, drab chest of drawers to make them look new again, or cover a sofa that’s a little faded with a sofa cover. It means that rather than buying a whole new piece of furniture, you can keep what you have and still stay on trend!

Clever storage that works for you

One of the key demands of the modern homemaker is creating a multi-functional space. The living room isn’t just a place to relax anymore; it’s also somewhere you’ll entertain guests and work from. It may even double as a playroom if you have children or grandchildren! To make your space fit for all of these purposes, you need clever storage that works for you. In-built cabinets, fold-out desks, and multi-functional units make it easy to turn your home from an office into a relaxing TV room.

Following new trends is a fantastic way to find inspiration for your own space. But, it’s important to remember that a really beautiful home reflects the people who live in it, not just what’s in every magazine. Blend current trends with your own unique tastes to create a space that you love to come home to!

If you don’t know where to start, why not keep things simple with a fitted sofa cover? It’s an easy change that can totally transform a room, and give you a starting point to work from.
