To give you an idea, our real estate agents have compiled some of our favorites that we expect will be trending in 2022 and beyond.
- Designing a Multi-Functional Room
If every room in your home is only for one purpose, then you may need to step up your game a bit. These days, many homeowners are designing multi-functional rooms that add convenience while also saving space. Options include an office that doubles as a gaming room or possibly a mini-theater with a small bed tucked in the corner for guests.
- Setting Up Your Own Home Office
Ever since the pandemic started, millions of people began to seriously consider working from home or realized that it had become a necessity. Upgrading your existing home office to include better flooring, a bigger desk, additional shelves, and other necessities are all great options. And if you're office is simply a desk in the corner of a room, install a few new shelves and consider new flooring or an overall change to the entire area.
- Adding Colors and Patterns
At this point, there are practically endless color and pattern combinations available for your household. Many homeowners are opting for bolder colors for their kitchens and bathrooms, but lighter shades of blues, oranges, greens, and reds are still extremely popular. As for patterns, if you're not a fan of stripes or plaids, there's always a large variety of shapes, mosaics, and other patterns that will give your home a unique appearance.
- Building a Functional Outdoor Room
There's no shortage of outdoor rooms that professionals can build for you. If you'd like, you can design an entire second living room complete with entry door, tile floors, big-screen TV, recliners, and other conveniences. Outdoor kitchens are also extremely popular and can be equipped with a stove/oven, refrigerator, grill, microwave, cabinets, and anything else that you find indoors.
- Creating an Entertainment Zone
Thanks to advances in home technology, creating an entertainment zone has not only become more popular, but it's easier than ever to achieve. Just imagine having a mini-theater complete with bar, concessions, reclining seats, and huge screen right in your own home. Or you can go all-out and add items such as a pool table, air hockey table, full-size arcade games, dartboard, foosball machine, and other entertainment favorites.
- Upgrading the Existing Bathroom
Could your bathroom use a facelift? If your bathroom sink, toilet, shower, or even medicine cabinet have seen better days, it's time for an upgrade. If you're looking for a small home improvement project for 2022 that will make a huge difference, this is it.
- Constructing a Walk-In Pantry
No matter the size of your home and the number of cabinets in your kitchen, a pantry can be a veritable godsend. If you want to truly take advantage of this extremely convenient concept, you should consider constructing a walk-in version. This will give you more than enough room, make items easily accessible, and free up space in the kitchen for necessities.
