Six Big Picture Wellness Design Trends For 2022

Happy New Year! How are you doing? How’s your family? I hope ll is well on your end. It’s such a weird time, isn’t it? On the one hand, we have a new year with new opportunities. On the other, we’re still dealing with a global pandemic that reached our shores about two years ago.

As always, our homes play a supporting role in our lives. In addition to sheltering us, they provide sustenance, comfort, entertainment and functionality. COVID has really driven that point home, hasn’t it? It has impacted how we use our spaces, how we experience them and all the ways we want them to support us.

These are the six big picture trends you can look forward to in 2022.
