6 Bedroom Design Trends to Watch for in 2022
To sum up the 2022 bedroom design trends in two words: customized and cozy. People want a personalized space that allows them to truly be themselves, which means things like high-quality materials and statement-making styles are on the upswing.
1. Put Comfort First
Spending more time in our homes the last couple years developed a need for our homes to take on the role of calming sanctuary. It made us reevaluate our priorities and realize that our homes should always be kept comfortable and inviting. As we head into 2022, designing with comfort in mind is tops for bedroom trends. An easy way to hone in on coziness and tranquility? Try layering in soft, lush textiles and plush pillows. Incorporating calming and comforting accessories, like family photos, books you love, and scented candles, is also effective.
While sustainability is a concern that applies in all areas of the home (think paint, cleaning products, and food storage choices), prioritizing sustainability in the bedroom is just as important because we spend so much time sleeping there. As sustainability continues to grow as a priority, watch for natural, eco-friendly bedding options to be on the rise — recycled materials, organic fabrics, and sustainable fibers like bamboo. Products that are genuinely sustainable will show certifications like the Global Organic Textile Standard, Fair Trade Certified label, and Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
3. Vibrant Colors
Bolder, warmer shades are beginning to see an uptick in popularity as bedroom colors. While subdued neutrals like gray and white will never stop being favorites due to their soothing effect, expect to see more vivid hues like burgundy, caramel, orange and mossy green in the bedroom. In fact, earthy shades inspired by nature are generally on the rise throughout the home. As for the bedroom, consider going big by adding these warm, saturated colors to walls or bedding, or simply bring small pops of color to the room with accents like throws, pillows or tabletop accessories.
4. Bold Patterns
Experimenting with statement patterns in a shared living space might not be something you’re comfortable doing. However, since a bedroom is more private, trying out bold ideas should be a bit easier. Make your sleeping quarters a place you love — even if that means covering the walls in a wildly patterned wallpaper. And don’t be afraid to mix patterns on bedding, pillows and throws, or use an eye-catching area rug to ground the space.
5. Focus on Quality
Quality typically requires a bit more of a monetary investment. You pay for what you get, right? In 2022, expect consumers to be more willing to put up the extra cash for comfort, looking to products that are well-made and meant to last rather than items that are trendy but of lesser quality. The reason for this change? Being home more and splurging on higher quality home products. Now that people are used to quality, they don’t want to go back. When it comes to bedroom splurges, consider investing in pieces that are going to have the biggest impact — a new pillow, mattress or set of sheets, for example. Not only will they look extravagant, they’ll also have a direct impact on the quality of your sleep.
6. Spotlight on Guest Rooms
After a couple years of virtual events and canceled parties, people are ready to begin welcoming guests into their homes again. Many are finding, however, that their home is no longer ready to entertain or host overnight company. Guest rooms need to be refreshed, which will increasingly become a priority in 2022. If your guest room could use improvement, try using color to make the space more inviting. For instance, upgrade the bedding to something more warm and vibrant, or brighten up the walls. If you really want to make your guests feel pampered, splurging on a new mattress is another great investment.
