Some people take up remodeling projects as a hobby, while for others, it is more of a necessity to make their homes more functional.

No matter which category you belong to, if you are to take up a home remodeling project, it’s worth knowing the latest trends. To save you time, we have done the work for you. If you’re planning to upgrade your home in 2022, here are some latest house remodeling trends you should consider:

1. Mudroom

A mudroom may seem like a waste of space to many, but it serves several important functions.

Having a mudroom is a great way to keep your home’s interior clean and tidy by encouraging everyone, family or visitor, to take off their shoes before entering the living space. This helps keep all the dust, dirt, and germs that make their way into your home via shoes out of it.

A well-constructed mudroom also helps keep the keys, coats, gloves, socks, hats, backpacks, or any other such daily use items organized in one place.

It can also be used as a drop zone or as a sanitizing station in times of COVID.

According to construction companies, an increasing number of people who’re building from scratch are opting for mudrooms. You can also convert an underutilized space of your home, near the entrance, into a mudroom.

2. Big Windows and Folding Glass Door

It seems people finally realize the importance (and benefits) of letting all that natural light into their homes because the demand for bigger windows is increasing. While the trend has been around for a bit, it is expected to grow in 2022.

In addition to bigger windows, another home remodeling trend gaining increasing popularity is folding glass doors in the living room that open into the patio or backyard. It takes the indoor/outdoor lifestyle trend to a whole new level and allows maximizing the space.

3. Home Office

The job market experienced a historical shift when the pandemic spread worldwide at the beginning of 2020. As the outside world became scary, the world shifted more to working from home. This initiated a new global digital transformation, and many companies shifted to remote work permanently. With the pandemic continuing into 2022, the work-from-home trend continues, pushing people to build their own work areas in homes.

Having a home office allows you to keep things organized and helps improve productivity.

The Sum Up

While there are several new trends emerging in the house remodeling industry, the ones highlighted above are some of the most popular ones expected to make it even bigger in 2022.
