Every year brings some new trends to shake up the interior design world. At Paragon Living, we’re always keeping on top of what’s new in the industry and what our residents are looking for.
So, here are the trends we’re predicting for rental properties that our current and prospective residents should keep an eye out for in 2022.
Unconventional Work Spaces
It’s been nearly two years since the COVID-19 pandemic forced many workers to bring their laptops and Zoom meetings home, and people are getting creative with how and where they set up their workspace.
Whether it’s temporary or permanent, we’re seeing unique working spaces in closets, under stairs, and in any nook and cranny you could think of. If you’re looking for ways to make your work from home space work for you, check out our blog post.
High Quality Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring is already in many Paragon Living rental suites, and we see this trend getting even more popular in 2022. LVP flooring gives your home a hardwood look that feels cozy, but with added durability. Because it’s more resistant to water damage (especially around sinks or showers) LVP flooring is replaced at a much lower rate than hardwood, saving you money and creating less waste.
Adding LVP flooring into more spaces that traditionally don’t have hardwood flooring (like bathrooms) adds continuity to your space and can make it feel bigger.
When it comes to decorating in 2022, more is more. The trend this year is about creating a cozy, soft feel, especially for your living spaces. This shouldn’t be a surprise with so many of us spending more time at home these days. Adding multiples of rugs, throw blankets, pillows, and other soft accessories will create the comfortable, relaxing oasis we all need.
Natural Décor Materials
Sustainability is top of mind in the interior design world, and we see that theme trickling into all areas of the industry in 2022. This is great news for plant parents, as it’s an excuse to add even more greenery to their space.
Decorating sustainably means choosing quality, handmade, locally or ethically sourced products to outfit your home. Paragon Living’s interior design partner Zoe Henry of Zoe Henry Designs suggests choosing natural materials like ceramic, wicker, woods, and stones to give your space a more earthy feel.
Along with highlighting the natural elements of our décor in 2022, we’re getting rid of hard edges altogether. And when we say we’re predicting curved everything, we mean everything – walls, furniture, décor, sinks, you name it.
Zoe Henry said while some people may need additional décor to bring curves into their homes, other Winnipeg residents already have them – many homes in Lindenwoods and Tuxedo areas have bull-nosed corners around their stairs and doorways. What is old is new again!
If you don’t have curved corners and edges in your home, you can introduce them with a few smart furniture purchases like curvy end tables, coffee tables and shelves.
Looking to Refresh Your Space?
If you’re looking to refresh your space this year, give one of these predictions a try! We’re so excited to see how the industry will take shape and what other interior design elements come to fruition.
