Interior Design Trends for 2022

December 5, 2021 4:59 pm Published by Comments Off on Interior Design Trends for 2022

If you’re working with a home builder in Chelsea AL like Scotch Homes, you’ll have the opportunity to work with our interior designer to help you choose your finishes, which include flooring, wall colors, countertop colors, light fixtures and more. Still, before you meet with the interior design team, it’s good to have ideas in mind so they can help you find the perfect items. With a new home, why not consider some new design trends. You don’t have to take on all of them; just select some of the elements that most appeal to you. With natural lighting, textured fabrics, lots of plants, and plenty of vintage and antiques popping up, you should easily find something you truly like.

Natural materials are showing up a lot for 2022, from kitchens to living rooms. Natural wood shelving in kitchens is paired with painted cabinets for a fresh look. In living rooms, you can return to the ‘80s — which is completely on trend right now — and look for furniture in rattan, wicker, and similar materials, but update them with more sophisticated cushion fabrics. Alternatively, you can stick with more traditional sofas and chairs, but look for ones with wood legs or wood arms. In this case, the vintage element comes in the form of the Art Deco period with softer, rounded edges to the furniture, which tends to be a bit more plush and cushiony. You can also include natural materials in rugs or wall hangings.

Vintage and antique pieces are making a greater comeback. Many people are going beyond Mid-century Modern and looking for true antique pieces, but the key is to mix and match them with more contemporary pieces to keep them up to date. Also consider using some of those antiques in spaces they weren’t typically used. An antique decorative-but-functional dining room sideboard could easily be used in a bedroom instead. You could also mix antique or vintage nesting tables with more contemporary sofas and chairs, adding a unique but useful touch to your living room. Or even nest an antique table beneath a simple, sleek, modern side table that almost serves as a frame for the more decorative antique.

Natural light — meaning plenty of windows and large windows — is a big feature for the coming year. Keep your curtains light, as well, or at least simple, even if you choose a darker fabric. After all, black is an on-trend accent color for 2022, so there’s no reason you couldn’t have black curtains and more earthier tones in the rest of the room, creating an elegant finish.

Of course, with all of those big windows and that natural light, it’s no surprise that houseplants are making a big return. Forget the single plant or a small grouping of succulents. You’ll look on trend if your living room or even a breakfast nook is filled with tall plants with full fronds or thick, dark leaves. Consider some hanging pots with dripping tendrils, as well.

These are just a few of the top trends for 2022. Marble, and lots of color and pattern are all showing up in a variety of ways in new homes. So as you work with Scotch Homes, a home builder in Chelsea AL, start thinking about how you want to incorporate some of these ideas into your brand new beautiful home.

    We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
    After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

    From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

    Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
