  REALTOR Magazine: 13 home trends stealing spotlight in '22  

While buyers are still seeking homes that offer safe, enjoyable shelter, new wish list items are emerging that give houses better design and function.


Home design trends that are expected to loom large in 2022 are an evolution of what started during the pandemic when life was disrupted and more homeowners started reevaluating their surroundings. Cases in point: the rise of the home office and backyard pools.

Some hot trends started years earlier, including energy efficiency, conservation of natural resources (especially in fire- and hurricane-ravaged areas), and affordable housing. In addition, each cohort has its own wish list-baby boomers want lower maintenance and millennials want strong broadband connectivity. One caveat: Know that there's no universal agreement about what's in and what's out, even among our pundits.
