Redecorating one or more rooms in your home is an exciting project that requires extensive planning and often a large amount of research and testing. However, the effort is normally worth it as it can make a real difference to your happiness and comfort level when relaxing in your own home.
If you are someone who enjoys researching and learning about the latest trends in home décor and design, continue reading to discover some of the most exciting and affordable home design trends for spring and summer this year.
Open Plan Kitchens
Open plan kitchens have been quietly increasing in popularity over the past few years or so, but in 2022 they have truly taken the home design world by storm.
The installation of an open plan kitchen is much more affordable than you may think, especially if you are concentrating on widening the space and increasing the level of possible social interaction, rather than redecorating the walls and replacing the cabinets, white goods and other fixtures and fittings.
An incredible improvement to the overall aesthetic appearance of your home that is currently trending is that of timber windows and doorframes.
Not only will the installation of quality timber windows from a respected and established window supplier mean your home is on trend for the summer and beyond, you will also benefit from an increased level of energy efficiency and therefore a reduction in your household bills, as well as an attractive aesthetic, and durable and low maintenance fixtures.
European Farmhouse Style
Farmhouse kitchens are one of the most idolized styles of kitchen of them all, but this spring and summer the shift in home décor and design trends has moved towards a more European farmhouse style.
Essentially, European farmhouse combines the refined elegance of European style with a rustic, relaxed and lived-in feel, with key pieces possible including heavy oak furniture with curved chairs and countryside themed cushions and other textures.
The Color Green
With such an emphasis on nature and finally an increased importance placed on being in and around nature from people across the length and breadth of the country and beyond, the color green is incredibly prominent in home décor and design trends this year.
Green is considered, amongst professional mental health experts, to evoke feelings of positivity, refreshing rejuvenation and an overall atmosphere of calm and peace.
Choose greens that are close to those tones and shades you would find in the natural environment and use to accent certain areas of your interior living spaces, including blankets, bedding and even wall art.
Arches & Curves
The move towards rounded and curved furniture pieces is one of the most prominent home design trends prevalent for spring and summer this year and certainly is not restricted to larger items.
Perhaps consider your feature wall in the living room covered in a bright and eye-catching geometric pattern featuring half-circles in different shades of the same color, or else maybe some beautiful ornate wooden ornaments in the bathroom made from different sized archways.
