Top 6 Design Trends for 2022

Mavtect’s Top 6 Design Trends | 2022

Farewell 2021… I don’t think many of us will be sad to say goodbye.

Turning our attention to 2022, we predict a number of design trends to find their way into an increasing number of custom homes designs.

With housing prices going through the roof in 2021, we expect to see exisiting home owners opt for alteration + additions rather than buy and build from scratch.

Here are our insights on the top 6 design trends for 2022.

1. Sustainability  


Sustainability in design has proven to incur lower maintenance costs, reduce expenditure on utilities + provide their owners with a higher ROI.

In 2022, we expect this to accelerate in the form of eco-friendly materials and natural light.

2. Multi-Purpose Spaces 

Single-use spaces are a thing of the past.

Demand for multi-functionality has increased, especially in light of the pandemic + working-from-home.

A space that is flexible to complement your lifestyle is high on the wish-list.

3. Inside • Outside

With land sizes typically becoming smaller, we are finding more creative ways to bring the outdoors inside.

Expansive glazing, servery windows + simple connection between indoor and outdoor spaces is very popular.

4. Storage Storage Storage


With housing prices rising, we have seen preferences shift toward alterations + additions vs. new home design.

Period homes typically have limited storage, especially for growing families, and this is a must-have design preference.

5. Wine Rooms

A contemporary take on a traditional cellar, wine rooms create a unique aesthetic without compromising a significant amount of space.

It’s an ideal solution for the avid wine collector to tick an item off their design bucket list.

Chin Chin!

6. Curves

We expect the curves trend to extend into 2022 in various expressions including joinery design, feature walls and external built forms.

Curves soften the typical straight lines we often see in modern homes.
