Multiple window banks

Let the sunshine in this year with plenty of windows that will stream in natural light. Houzz predicts that many people will be opting for long banks of multiple windows, sometimes on two or even three walls if the structure allows, creating a space full of light, breeze (if the windows open), and views.

Long and linear backsplash tiles

Houzz says that many homeowners are searching for a modern twist on the classic white

Practical storage solutions

Storage strategies are important when it comes to a neat and tidy home—especially if you live in a smaller space. In the kitchen, pullouts bring pantry items from the back of cabinets to the front and drawer dividers will organize cutlery, plates, and bowls. Upstairs, Houzz has seen an increase in interest for cubbies for towels, hidden storage for laundry hampers, and more sneaky storage solutions like blow dryer holders. Get creative, and work with what you have!

Heated bathroom floors

This year, consider a heated bathroom floor to keep toes toasty. Houzz asked more than 50 home design and remodeling professionals what bathroom feature they most recommend to homeowners, and heated floors came out on top. Plus they’re relatively inexpensive and easy to install during a renovation.

Multiple showerheads

Also in the bathroom, multiple showerheads are a popular choice for 2022. More than half (55%) of homeowners who update their shower during a bathroom renovation choose a rain showerhead, almost a quarter (23%) go for dual showerheads and 16% add body sprays, according to the 2021 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study.

Cozy outdoor areas

Houzz search data has shown that people want their backyards to be relaxing extensions of their interior living spaces. Think an outdoor couch, layered pillows and throws to keep things extra cozy, and plenty of ambient lighting to set the scene.
