With so many professionals forced to bring their work home at the start of the pandemic, it’s no surprise that home office renovations became such a popular design project in 2021.
Since we’ve learned exactly how effectively we can transition our work out of the office, it makes sense that people want to continue working from home—if not permanently, then at least more often than they had been in the past. As a result, creating a home office that is beautiful, comfortable and functional continues to be at the top of everyone’s minds in 2022.
If you want to redesign or create a workplace in your home this year, you’re in the right place. We’ve pulled all of the top home office trends people can’t get enough of in 2022. No matter where you are in the design process, you’ll find something you want to incorporate or emulate below.
Read on for subtle inspiration or a complete map forward in your office design project.
Top home office trends
A singular perfect home office doesn’t exist since everyone is looking for something slightly different—but just because you can’t find your dream office by looking at someone else’s, you may still glean insight or elements that will help you in designing your own.
Here are some things to consider incorporating in your 2022 home office:
- Adaptable desks: If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the months since March 2020, it’s that our work doesn’t take precedence over our well-being. While a home office in the past may have just been a desk big enough for a laptop tucked into a corner, today’s workers are looking for larger surfaces that allow them to spread out, organize their space to suit their current project and adapt as needed to get their work done comfortably.
- Natural elements: A rejection of the fluorescent-lit cubical, home offices in 2022 are all about embracing natural light, scenic views and natural elements like houseplants or water features—anything that helps offset the drain of blue light in your workday.
- Scandinavian design: The effortless elegance of Scandinavian design is all the rage in 2022 home office design. Not only are its minimalistic and calming principles conducive to stress reduction and enhanced focus, but it’s also an eco-friendly school of design that leaves plenty of room for you to add personal touches without clashing with the overall aesthetic.
- Room for respite: Rather than simply putting your head down and working straight through from 9 to 5, you can take advantage of today’s home offices to create space to step away from work and take a break. This could mean a lounge chair to take reading breaks in or a dartboard to unwind with—whatever allows you to catch your breath and pause.
