In preparation of the upcoming year, Taylor Morrison invited a group of design experts from coast to coast to share the latest trends for 2022. The six highlighted points touch on the pandemic’s effect on homes, popular colors and design styles, and how technology will influence design in the years to come.
- Pandemic’s influence: The COVID-19 pandemic has led many home buyers to place a renewed focus on comfort and functionality. “Our customers want homes with expanded everyday entry zones, more bulk storage, bigger kitchens, increased outdoor space, and more dedicated areas to study and work from home,” says Taylor Morrison’s vice president of product design, Brian Juedes.
- Old meets new: Just like fashion, home design styles never really leave for good. In 2022, Taylor Morrison designers predict homeowners will mix traditional design elements, like colorful patterned wallpaper and rich wood tones, with more contemporary pieces. “People are staying in their home longer so they’re opting for a look that doesn’t go out of style quickly,” shares Las Vegas-based designer Laurie Jiu.
