Colored cabinetry makes a powerful statement in the kitchen.

With a new year comes new trends. What will be hot in home decor this year? Although many existing trends are slated to remain popular, a number of new trends are also emerging.

Here are some of the predictions for what will be on trend in 2022.

1 | Tile. Whether on the floor, walls or as accents, the prominent use of tile remains on trend, especially in bathrooms and kitchens.

2 | Wallpaper. Wallpaper remains hotter than ever. Whether you choose to use it on an accent wall or to cover surfaces in an entire room, wallpaper provides an opportunity to infuse both color and texture into a space.

3 | Tone on tone. Yes, it is still OK to infuse bursts of color, but monochromatic or tone-on-tone interiors remain modern and fresh.

4 | Two-tone cabinetry. The trend started roughly a decade ago of mixing different cabinets in the same space. This mix of colors and materials remains on trend.

5 | Cozy elements. Hygge is still hot as it relates to infusing cozy elements, such as fireplaces, into a home.

6 | Home offices. As society continues to pivot more and more, workers will continue to work from home. The home office trend is predicted to continue to grow.

7 | Black and white. Many people continue to look for a color palette that is timeless yet elegant, and black and white remains a popular choice.

8 | Bronze, brass and copper. Although traditional finishes, such as chrome and nickel, have their appeal, many homeowners are opting for more unexpected finishes, such as bronze, brass and copper.

9 | Mirrors. Mirrors are back in vogue. Whether you are using them down a hallway or in a series to mimic the look and feel of windows, a generous use of mirrors remains a popular trend.

10 | Colored cabinetry. From red to black, blue and even purple, the trend remains to incorporate color and individuality into social areas, such as the kitchen.

The bathroom is one area of the home that you shouldn’t put off cleaning. Unlike living areas or bedrooms, bathrooms are exposed to much more than everyday dirt or dust and the occasional spill. Surfaces like sinks, toilets, bathtubs and shower fixtures can collect bacteria, hard-water deposits, mold or mildew, soap scum and other gross buildup over time, so it’s crucial to stay on top of regular bathroom cleaning.
