2022 Home Improvement Trends - Haring Realty

If you've been searching through the long list of amazing Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale, you've probably already noticed that each one is chock-full of unique designs and amenities. It may not take long, however, before you're ready to add something extra to your new or existing home.

Let's take a look at a handful of home improvement trends for 2022 and beyond. 

  1. Multi-Functional Room
    A big trend that's been happening over the past few years and will continue into 2022 is creating a multi-function room. This is where you basically take a single room, and instead of using it solely as an office, guest room, or other such function, you combine two or more aspects. This means you can create a sweet movie and gaming room but also stick a desk in the corner so that it doubles as a home office.

  2. Better Workspace
    Speaking of creating a home office, the pandemic has caused millions of people to either start working at home or consider doing so. If this is something that's currently part of your life or could be in the future, then you should either create a workspace or revamp an existing one. You can do this by setting aside an entire room or sprucing up a corner with new shelves, plants, paintings, etc.

  3. Colors and Patterns
    If you want to give your home a sizeable makeover, you should definitely consider adding various colors and patterns. Bold-colored kitchens, for instance, are becoming more the norm as they stand out from the tried-and-true white kitchens homeowners have loved for decades. As for patterns, you can go with stripes, plaids, shapes, etc.—anything that tickles your fancy!

  4. Outdoor Living Space
    Each year, our realtors are more amazed at the growing trend of "the great outdoors" incorporating indoor living styles. Most homeowners know that they can construct an outdoor kitchen, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. If you have the funds and the inclination, you can go as far as installing an enclosed living room outside complete with HDTV, couch, coffee table, fireplace, and practically anything else you'd like to put in there.

  5. Upgraded Flooring 
    Although carpet is a very functional, attractive type of flooring, many homeowners have decided to upgrade to either wood, tile, or laminate. All three of these solutions come in many different colors and styles, which means you'll find something that fits your personality and matches the rest of your home. As a bonus, these surfaces are easier to clean and won't trap dust and other pollutants.

  6. All-Purpose Drop Zone
    Also called a "mudroom," an all-purpose drop zone is typically close to the front door and designed to hold a variety of items that you may routinely need whenever you head outdoors. This is the perfect place for those who need a dedicated area to put their car keys, but it could hold anything from boots and jackets to medical items and phone chargers. This is also a common area to place a washer and dryer so that you can drop off clothes when you enter, as needed.

  7. Walk-In Pantry
    Even if you have tons of cabinet space in your existing kitchen, you may find yourself needing more room for food items as your household grows. Installing more shelves or cabinets is a good option, but constructing a walk-in pantry may just be the perfect solution. This will allow you to easily store and access food and supplies.
