What Does At-Home Wellness Look Like in 2022?

What Does At-Home Wellness Look Like in 2022?

Ever since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve learned a very important lesson – being at home should be pleasurable and fulfilling. The pandemic made us spend more time than ever before in our homes. For many, they became a place for living, working, exercising and practising favourite activities while socially distancing.

Covid-19 also increased the focus on wellness as a part of interior design. Wellness, however, is a rather general term that means a lot of different things to different people.

This is why a number of at-home wellness trends have come into existence and they’re currently dominating home renovation projects. If you’re looking for opportunities to upgrade your living space, here are a few of the wellness ideas worth exploring.

A Complete At-Home Concept

Usually, a wellness corner is incorporated in the interior design of a single room – as a part of the living room or the bedroom, for example.

Over the past few years, however, more people are starting to make the switch to a wellness-centric home. Wellness is present in all parts of the residential space and it acts as a unified theme that ties the interior design of the home together.

Imagine being into well-paced, intentional and conscious living. If so, you’d want it to be featured in every single room. Natural materials, comfortable furniture, breath-taking views of the landscape revealed through large windows, a bedroom that’s turned into a relaxation boudoir, the absence of television (or minimal placement of multimedia appliances), a reading corner – all of these work together to ensure opportunities the home owner will want to enjoy every single day.

If wellness is really important to you, think about how you want to enjoy it every single day. When you have a clear concept in mind, you’ll get to decide about the specific décor elements that will bring the concept to your living space.

Indoor Gardens and Lots of Greenery

Plants aren’t just beautiful to look at, they play an important role in the execution of a wellness concept. Bringing nature into your home has a calming effect. Such serenity is important for many people who are forced to cope with the fast-paced city life.

Potted plants are typical for urban dwellers but some are taking the idea a step further.

If you have enough space, the creation of an indoor garden will really give you a lot to look forward to when coming home after a busy office day.

An indoor garden can be decorative or you can even consider growing your own fruits and veggies in a city environment. And even if you don’t have a lot of space, there are still possibilities. Hydroponic systems make it easy to grow plants without needing soil. These systems also minimise the use of pesticides and fertilisers, contributing to cleaner and much easier plant growing.

A Focus on Clear Air

For some people, wellness is about the creation of optimal, healthy living conditions.

One of the biggest problems in the city is air pollution. Gases, dust and dirt particles all reduce air quality and can contribute to a range of respiratory issues.

That’s why 2022 at-home wellness puts special emphasis on air purity.

A simple way to get cleaner air at home has already been discussed – plants aren’t just beautiful to look at. They’re functional in their ability to clean air. In fact, NASA experts have determined which decorative plants have the most powerful air purifying qualities. The list includes popular species like areca palm, snake plant, spider plant, gerbera daisies, aloe vera and dracaena.

Good AC systems also play an important role. And if you choose an energy efficient air conditioner, you’ll get an excellent return on investment.

Cleaner air is also about choosing low VOC paints and sealants, as well as other home renovation products that are free from harmful chemicals.

Colour Psychology

We have already discussed colour psychology and how different tones have the power to influence mood and even health.

Because colours are so important, more home owners and interior designers are putting colour schemes under the magnifying glass in 2022.

When making colour choices, don’t just focus on how pretty a certain scheme looks. You should also think of the way colours impact you – are they calming, stimulating, inspiring, romantic? Which room are you renovating? The colour selection for the bedroom shouldn’t be the same one you make for the home office.

But don’t just think about the theory of colour psychology. Personalise the colour scheme and select tones that make you feel happy. Some people like yellow because it’s the colour they associate with sunlight. Others like blue – like the sky and the sea. It’s really up to you to make those connections and bring positive, exciting tones into your living space.

These are just a few facets of wellness-inspired at-home interior design in 2022. Needless to say, wellness can be a whole lot more – nourishment, good communication, perfect acoustics for the music lovers, thermal comfort, mindfulness, sustainability and even innovation through relevant tech selection.

If you have a very specific idea of what wellness means to you but you don’t know how to execute that idea at home, contact Home Guide for our home renovation services. We love personalised projects that challenge us and get us thinking outside the box. Check out our residential portfolio for a better idea about what we’re capable of.
