2022 Remodeling Trend: Style Is Matched By Practicality And Durability

As people continue to spend more time at home, virtually every space has to fulfill multiple functions, unlike in the past when a home might have a rarely used room or other under-utilized space.

Now, a spare bedroom may serve as a home office and a workout room. If two adults are working from home, the kitchen may also be doing extra duty as a second office as well as a homework space for the kids.

This, in turn, means more usage of each area, so homeowners want more than just style in the materials that go into their remodeling projects. They also expect better performance in terms of practicality and durability.

Start From The Floor Up
Perhaps no other surface in the home is subject to more tough challenges than the floors. They face a constant parade of feet and paws, spills, dirt and dropped objects. So, homeowners want durable flooring that’s low maintenance, easy to clean and comfortable, yet also stylish.

Luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank are both among the top flooring trends because they’re affordable, durable, easy to maintain, resilient for more comfort underfoot, and often waterproof. Plus, today’s luxury vinyl captures the look of genuine wood and stone in amazingly realistic and stylish detail.

Other popular hard surface choices include tile, waterproof hardwood, and waterproof laminate.

In cases where a soft surface is desired for warmth and coziness, waterproof and stain resistant carpet is an excellent option. Yes, waterproof carpet is real. The choices are attractive, easy to clean, and made to last.

Focus On Flexible Furnishings
With rooms frequently serving double and even triple duty, furnishings have to stand up to heavy use while also serving multiple functions, including work surface, seating, storage and space divider. Along with heavy use comes more exposure to spills, dirt, scratches, and more. As with flooring, furnishings must be durable, comfortable, practical, and easy to clean. Using outdoor fabrics for interior applications, such as canvas for seat cushions, is another popular trend. With their ability to stand up to harsh elements, they can certainly handle interior demands.

In cabinetry for both kitchens and baths, soft close drawer glides and door hinges reduce wear and tear. Plus, flexible smart storage options add extra convenience.

Beautiful, non-porous quartz countertops are a fast-growing trend because they’re tough, don’t require sealing or other expensive maintenance, and are easy to clean and sanitize.

Find The Best Fixtures
The demand for better performance even extends to cabinet hardware, bathroom fixtures, and more. Since these items can make a big style impact in pulling a look together, homeowners want to know they’ll keep their appearance and function properly under extended use. Stainless steel, brass and bronze are among the most preferred choices when it comes to enduring visual appeal and lasting performance.
