Interior Design and Decoration Trends in Retail 2022

Interior design will continue to be in demand for the foreseeable future and as more public and private spaces become available they will need to be modified to better accommodate recent Covid-19 rules and avoid overcrowding. as interior design will not only be in demand but also required in homes and retail businesses. Retailers around the world are focusing on creating more immersive and engaging interior environments for their customers, which includes designing spaces that are both visually appealing and user-friendly. Retailers are also using technology to improve the customer experience, especially when it comes to personalized recommendations and real-time inventory updates.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Angelique Dhama, CEO of OBEETEE Retail, said, “Interior design and decorating trends in 2022 aren’t just about what’s beautiful. It’s also about what feels beautiful on the inside. The Henrys (high income not yet wealthy) and millennial homeowners today are focused on creating a space that reflects their inner selves and they are steeped in the concept of sustainability. Consequently, the interior design space now revolves around using products made from natural and sustainable raw materials – a trend that I have personally noticed in the carpet industry as well. In terms of design, the minimalist approach is prevalent among the public with an understated and subtle color palette.

Talking about how while much of the world was captivated by the pop culture phenomenon that was Pokémon Go in 2016, another technological advancement was quietly creeping into our homes – augmented reality (AR), Uttamaditya , CEO and Founder of U&I Interiors pointed out that Augmented Reality has been on the minds of engineers and innovators since its conception in the early 1980s. However, he shared that only in recent years has it has started to make its way into our daily lives.

Highlighting what these interior design trends will look like in 2022, he listed ideas:

1. VR and AR – While we are still in the early days of virtual reality and augmented reality, both are set to become popular interior design trends over the next decade. Virtual reality lets you imagine what a space would look like with different furniture and decor; augmented reality uses your smartphone to do a similar thing. We can expect these technologies to continue to improve at an impressive rate. Both also have environmental benefits as they rely on natural products like wood or stone, while virtual reality works best when paired with organic cotton helmets.

2. Artificial Intelligence – Five years from now, virtual reality and augmented reality will have had a significant impact on interior design. Architects will use these technologies to customize each client’s interiors based on many factors: budget, tastes, desired environment, etc. Today’s artificial intelligence may not be able to meet all of these demands at once, but five years from now it will be fully capable of doing so.

3. Smart Home Technology – Smart home technology will soon be able to capture and store data about its owner’s habits and habits. It will then use these observations to customize itself accordingly, for example, it might adjust indoor temperature or light levels when a user enters a room. This personalization of natural products is sure to become an incredibly popular trend over the next few years.

4. Nanotechnology – Beyond making human-sized robots, nanotechnology could play a role in future interior design. Nanotechnology uses tiny particles to create materials that are lighter, stronger and cheaper than their natural counterparts. This is great news for designers trying to create furniture and other items with a high level of customization at an affordable price; the use of nanotechnology makes it possible to create lighter materials without sacrificing structure.

5. Creator Bots – To personalize your home, you’ll want to make sure everything is exactly the way you want it. That might mean tweaking the look of your sofas or adjusting your favorite artwork to better fit a wall, but what if you don’t have time for all of that? What if you wanted a bot designer to do it for you? We already have AI helping us with shopping, why not interior design too? In 2022, you might be able to use an app on your phone to take a picture of your living room and let an AI tell you what colors would work best there. You can even try out different furniture arrangements and see what they look like before buying anything!
