Whether you’re looking to update your home office space or amp up your outdoor area, TikTok offers keen DIYers countless ideas to help them take their homes to the next level. From DIY hacks to whimsical house tours, the platform is a treasure trove of inspiration for the home, and some of the top trends you see on your “For You” page can even increase the value of your property.

In a new study, Rated People analyzed more than 800,000 home improvement jobs to uncover the 20 biggest home improvement trends in 2022. The researchers then interviewed more than 2,000 potential property buyers, revealing how much extra they’d pay for a property if it had each of the tops trends.

Outdoor kitchens are a staple this summer. It doesn’t have to be a huge kitchen set-up—small balcony areas have enough room for a grill—but outdoor kitchens can add $6,800 to a home’s value. Plus, they’re a popular pick among TikTokers, with the tag #outdoorkitchen having over 125 million views to date.

With over 5 million views on TikTok, herringbone floors are a style that adds classic charm to any space. Whether rendered with wood or tiles, the zigzag pattern brings in movement and texture, making the floor a statement piece in its own right. The survey found that buyers would be happy to pay around $6,600 more for a home if it had a herringbone floor in its interior, making it one of the most profitable home improvement trends.

According to the study, “living walls” can increase a home’s value by an average of $6,308. DIY content creator shared a genius hack for creating a faux plant wall on a budget, while @benmakesbits added a plant frame to a wall mirror.

Finally, while green walls have been a popular choice among many people for a good few years—who can forget Dakota Johnson‘s iconic green kitchen? — the trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The tag #greenkitchen has 55 million views on TikTok, and according to survey respondents, adding a lick of green paint to your space can increase your home’s value by $6,406.
