Interior design is the art and science of analyzing people’s behavior to create useful and aesthetically acceptable places within a structure where equipping or embellishing a space with aesthetic elements, sometimes accompanied by guidance and practical help, is called decoration. Interior designers determine the space requirements and select decorative things like colors, lighting and materials to make interior spaces functional, safe and beautiful to synchronize with the changed world where spaces are becoming more and more personal, with standard styles such as minimalist, luxury and industrial moving towards a more hybrid mix .

Nothing is set in stone everything is possible and we will see an amalgamation of styles based on individual choice, taste and needs and the pandemic has taught us the need to build more connection with nature which is also reflected in our preferences in interior design. Retailers around the world are focusing on creating more immersive and engaging interior environments for their customers, including designing spaces that are both visually appealing and easy to use. Retailers are also using technology to improve the customer experience, especially with regard to personalized recommendations and real-time inventory updates.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Uttamaditya, CEO and founder of U&I Interiors, said, “One of the most popular retail interior design trends is incorporating nature into your space. This can be done by integrating plants or trees into your shop design, by adding natural materials such as grass or stone, or by applying green walls or ceilings. In addition, designers love to mix neutrals with pops of color to create a truly unique environment for shoppers.”

Lahari Shetty, Chief Designer Architecnix, revealed: “Natural textures, finishes such as natural stone, earthy colors and antique finishes will gain traction. Sustainability, repurposed and upcycled furniture will no longer be just new ideas. Augmented Reality and Metaverse are exciting concepts. For interior designers Virtual and Augmented Reality add value to their design by creating a more immersive experience. Similarly, Metaverse can be a game changer in our online shopping experience. Brands and companies can create Metaverse avatars for their physical stores. In short, 2022 will see the rise marking a fusion where we embrace futuristic technology while remaining in harmony with our roots and with nature in our living and working spaces.”

According to Mustafa Johar, co-founder and CEO of Makemyhouse.com, the job of an interior designer involves a lot of hard work and the ability to make tough decisions as interior design has taken the lead in developing residential housing, office space, commercial businesses and organizations such as hospitals, schools and religious centers over the years. He already said it about what interior design will look like in 2022:

1. Personalization – Personalized design means it’s made just for you. It’s so important because we can think about accessibility and design it beautifully at the same time. Each design field requires personal information about the person for whom the design is being created. We prefer a place where we can feel our own aura. A perfect design would be one that justifies it. The term “custom” is often used to describe personalization. In the field of home improvement and interior design, the term “customization” is often used. Your interior designer or contractor should develop unique ideas with a range of suppliers to suit your individual requirements to truly deliver a quality bespoke experience.

2. Nature – The global pandemic of the past two years has had a huge impact on our way of life, living spaces and interior trends in 2022. During the corona era, we learned to refocus on the important aspects of life. In our lives, awareness, slow living and connection with nature have taken on new meanings. By using natural materials for interior design and introducing more plants into our homes, we have gradually embraced nature in our own four walls. We are all looking to better connect with nature as we spend more time indoors than ever before. This has led to a rebirth of natural materials, such as stoneware, terracotta, marble and travertine, used in everything from backsplashes to bathtubs, furniture and decorative objects. The raw, porous, imperfect nature of these organic materials adds depth, soul and visual fascination, while also mimicking the peaceful, restorative atmosphere of nature. This desire to reconnect with nature has led to an interest in huge trees in the home. Brown-tinted, sculptural and curved furniture, including earth tones and natural elements. In 2022, it became all the rage.

3. Augmented Reality in Interior Design – The benefits of augmented reality in customer interior design include better visualization. Using augmented reality in interior design, the client can see the project before it is built. The application of augmented reality in the interior design allows the user to arrange the space exactly as he wants. Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that allows designers to add computer-generated input to parts of a user’s physical world. Inputs are made by designers.

Interior design is a craft capable of creating spaces that suit our new world and it is the only industry sector capable of doing so with a skill that will blend into the functioning system. As the new normal begins to take hold in our society, demand will rise rigorously.

Interior design will remain in demand for the foreseeable future. As more public and private spaces become available, they will need to be adapted to better comply with recent Covid-19 regulations and avoid overcrowding, as interior design will be not only wanted but also required.
