2022 home remodeling trends focus on improving a home’s functionality.

Even as we approach nearly two years since the pandemic began, its impact on all aspects of our lives endures. In the year ahead, homeowners will continue to look for opportunities to improve the use of their homes. This emphasis on functionality will significantly affect the home remodeling industry and influence upcoming home remodeling trends.

Here are five of the top home remodeling trends to watch for in 2022.

  1. Sustainability
    From eco-friendly materials to energy-efficient appliances, homeowners are looking to incorporate sustainability within their households. Homeowners feel that sustainable solutions benefit both the environment and their wallets as they can provide a positive return on investment.
  2. Multi-Functional Spaces
    Creating spaces that can serve multiple functions is essential when you cannot build an addition or entirely repurpose a room. Remodeling spaces to fit numerous needs, such as a guestroom doubling as a home office, will be critical as we continue to do more at home.
  3. Outdoor Living Spaces
    This home remolding trend has been popular this last year and is here to stay. Outdoor living spaces serve as an extension of a home to provide more livable space and entertainment options. From decks to outdoor kitchens, homeowners will be looking for ways to upgrade their outdoor living spaces.
  4. Health and Safety
    Since the pandemic, health and safety are always at the forefront of our minds. Much like the sustainability trend, homeowners want to find ways to incorporate health and safety features into their homes, including doorbell cameras and other monitoring systems, touchless appliances, and even whole-house air purifiers.
  5. Multigenerational Households
    In-law suites will continue to gain popularity as more families of multiple generations choose to live together. With the increase of multigenerational households, the need for extra space to accommodate additional family members will influence home remodeling projects. This home remodeling trend will have homeowners creating in-law suites as either home additions or internal remodels.
