This year, the real estate industry is seeing luxury home trends like never before. Warm colors are still in, but almost every other trend is brand new. Let’s take a look at what home buyers are vying for in 2022. 

Zen Retreats

Arguably, the last few years have been the most stressful in recent memory. It’s no wonder home buyers are looking for homes that are also their sanctuaries. Warm neutral colors invoke a sense of peaceful minimalism when paired with the color of the year – sage. Textures also play a key role in invoking this meditative feeling. Trendy homebuyers are opting for bamboo, wood, and cotton. Accessories such as rugs, vases, and couch pillows also add a tactile texture to an environment.

Seamless Designs

Doubling down on the zen vibes, homebuyers are opting for spaces that flow into one another. Giving a greater sense of spaciousness, this home trend takes the open space concept to the next level. There is less of a focus on dedicated spaces, with the exception of kitchens and master bedrooms. Common spaces like libraries and offices are replacing guestrooms that include a small reading area and desk. Efficient built-in storage in places like the bathroom to put away styling items or built-in storage in walk-in closets are also making a splash in 2022.

Eco-Friendly Homes

Today’s homebuyers care more for the environment than past generations. Survey results published in Blue and Green Tomorrow found that 73% of Americans would pay more for an environmentally friendly home. This includes technology that consumes less energy, laundry rooms with high-efficiency washers and dryers, and solar-paneled rooftops.

Outdoor Amenities

According to Forbes, out-of-town homebuyers are outspending locals by over 25 percent. Transplants from places like New York City and Chicago saw their life shrink down to 1,000 square feet during the pandemic and are in no hurry to relive that experience. These homebuyers have discovered that by journeying south to Miami they are able to purchase private outdoor spaces along with a more spacious home at prices at or lower than they were used to. 

If recent home trends tell us anything, it seems that buyers are not just looking for more outdoor space, but outdoor amenities as well. ​​Pickleball courts, dedicated outdoor entertainment spaces, swimming pools, and big patios with increased privacy are becoming more and more popular this year.
