The past few years have allowed us the opportunity to be better acquainted with our homes thanks to the various lockdowns and quarantine restrictions that were implemented in an attempt to quell the spread of a certain virus pandemic. 

 

 

Thus, this shift in paradigm to spending extended periods of time within one’s house will no doubt inspire a change in house designs not only in the Philippines but all over the world as well. And hopefully, this article will give you a brief overview of some predictions for housing trends in 2022.

 

Sustainable Practices

This particular house design trend has been on the rise for a while now, considering that people are becoming more concerned with the environment and the effects of climate change, thus it is conceivable that home plans in the coming years will be designed with materials and technological innovations that put sustainability to the forefront such as smart thermostats, recycled water systems and green energy.

 

Nature Inspired Hues

Undoubtedly, people who have lived through the last few years of lockdowns and home quarantine will try to incorporate the colors of nature in the outdoors into any future house designs, as going outside and experiencing the natural world has been greatly missed as of recent times.

 

Indoor-Outdoor Living

In line with incorporating nature into home plans, Philippine architects will most likely design homes that incorporate exterior living spaces and natural sunlight and airflow in the foreseeable future, as homeowners who have spent the better part of the last couple of years trapped behind four walls and a ceiling will probably want to reconnect with the natural world.

 

Casual/ Rustic Designs

As the saying goes: “less is more”, as such, it can be predicted that prospective homeowners will opt for more rustic and inviting interior and exterior house designs with emphasis on softer, lighter paint colors and exposed woodgrain that give a more relaxed aesthetic.

 

Vintage and Reclaimed Aesthetic

Another in the line of trends that move towards a future of sustainability and being more connected with nature. This is perhaps a result of the disruption in various supply chains of furniture and building materials, but it is possible to see a rise in the purchase of secondhand vintage furniture, or perhaps incorporating furniture made out of reclaimed material into future home plans, after all “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.
