What’s going to be hot in 2022??

If you are considering new home décor for 2022, then there are a few simple techniques to make your property stand out from the crowd.

  • Splashes of colour
    Although plainer walls still define contemporary designs, brighter shades such as a vivid Red or Ultra Violet (Pantone’s Colour of the Year) provide a great stylistic counterpoint.
  • Gold or Copper
    Rather than plainer metals such as stainless steel or brushed nickel, a home can come to life with materials that have a warmer colour to them.
  • Mixing materials
    One of the key trends for kitchens in 2022 is combining different materials and tones. A more contemporary minimalist style can look fantastic but isn’t always practical in kitchens. Put, white surfaces get dirty quickly! Marble, tiles, and wood are all back on trend and provide a good choice for the kitchen.
  • Classic wooden surfaces
    Everyday items such as tables, flooring, and bannisters can stand out with a classic wood finish. Solid panel shutters are a great window treatment idea for living rooms and are once again gaining popularity among architects. Wood is a material that keeps on giving.
  • Black and white geometric shapes
    Bold shapes in black and white are coming back in for both designers and homeowners alike. Particularly popular for tiled flooring in Victorian townhouses, this trend now also extends to zig zag rugs, furniture and even window coverings.
  • Large feature windows
    These provide fantastic views for properties in more secluded locations, just as by lakes or wooded areas, although may not be as effective for a smaller inner-city home! Letting large volumes of light in, large feature windows sound great, but quickly can fade your furniture due to the bleaching effect of the sun. Therefore, it is important to think about window treatments like shutters which can temper the light when closed, or bi-fold out of the way when needed.

Above all, when exploring the home design trends 2022 has to offer, think about the shapes and colours you enjoy the most. Being on trend is a great plan if you’re considering moving and want to up-sell your property, but it may not be the most practical solution for everyday living.

What’s out in 2022?

Although stylish, open space is not suited to everyone’s needs. If you are in a new property and want to close up the space, there are choices such as shutters to divide rooms to help you get the design right.

Keeping your home stylish for the New Year is not just a case of looking for new additions; it also recognises which decorating trends are out. Your property may feature some of the design trends from years gone by, so what better time to spruce up your living space and bring it up to date?

Trends such as “popcorn ceilings”, lace tablecloths, textured wallpaper and ruffled bed skirts were popular for many years but eventually fell out of fashion. Why not revisit your home design this year, change your style or invest in different window coverings to breathe new life into your interiors?

Although interior design trends may change yearly, it is always satisfying to keep updating your home, taking advantage of the latest contemporary looks and reflecting your changing tastes.

  • Nautical/seaside themes
    Giving your home a holiday feel all year round, features such as rope, driftwood, portholes and model boats are on the way out as tastes change among interior designers.
  • Wallpaper borders
    Borders can be an eye-catching way to help split up two different shades on a wall, and for a time, were also popular to emphasise the divide between wall and ceiling. However, wallpaper borders are now being phased out in favour of clean walls and plain colours.
  • Pine furniture
    Due to the wood’s natural finish, pine has been a popular material for many years. Although it provides a classic look, this particular grain (and cheaper alternatives that give the appearance of pine), are being phased out in favour of alternate materials.
  • Vertical blinds
    As nominated by Elle’s Décor website, vertical blinds are seeming more and more outdated. Although the height of window fashions for many years, these solutions are difficult to operate, clean, and rattle with even the lightest breeze.

What are the latest styles in window dressings?

Although not a practical choice for every home, plain glass is one of the more interesting 2022 home decorating trends. Stylish for modern apartments with a minimalist style, having no window covering at all, it seems very metropolitan, although it is not ideal for properties which are overlooked by others. With no light control, the sun can also prove blinding when at its fullest, and there is no protection from the cold or nearby street lights.

Venetian blinds continue to be popular, especially in classic wood grain finishes, tying in well with one of 2022’s other returning trends. Timeless in design, Venetians are designed to block out light when closed and have several safety features to ensure they work in almost any environment.

Maybe we’re a little biased, but one of the other solutions that continue to be popular is stylish window shutters. Available from your local Shuttercraft in several shapes, sizes, colours and styles, shutters complement various interiors and can make a home stand out. The clean lines of shutters make them fantastic for creating a contemporary look, as well as maximising space and adding privacy and light control.


Keeping up with interior trends isn’t just about finding the latest style; it is a way of helping keep your home up to scratch in case you decide to sell. Every year designers recommend some changes, which may not be to your taste, and may be out of fashion again just 12 months later, so it is important to pick a style that works for you and will last.

Without a drastic overhaul of your living space, you can make a significant impact in your home by simply choosing one of the latest window dressings. Shuttercraft help you choose a shutter style to sparkle your house for 2022 and beyond!
