Interior design trends come and go. In the early 2000s, granite kitchen counters were all the rage. Today, everyone wants marble counters. Granite makes a kitchen look dated, which can negatively impact the value of a home.
Not all interior design trends are so cut and dry. Some trends never go out of style entirely—they re-emerge with a whole new twist. For instance, wallpaper is making a big comeback as a statement mural or as a bold backdrop for built-in shelving.
To learn which interior design trends are fading away and which ones are here to stay, Masonite commissions annual proprietary trend forecasts. That’s how we ensure we continue to offer on-trend doors for every style of home.
Neutrals will never go out of style—but all-white, clinical interiors are becoming less popular. Instead of cool-toned greys and flat whites, warm neutrals are on the rise. These cozy tones help any home feel more like a sanctuary.
Updating your all-white interior is easy: paint your interior doors dark for depth and incorporate calming, nature-inspired neutrals like an oatmeal-colored rug or linen throw pillows.
Fast furniture reached its peak in 2021 due to accessibility and affordability. In its place, homeowners are opting for reliable and sustainable pieces that prove to be more durable and timeless.
Some DIYers are getting creative with upcycled furnishings from resale shops and even crafting their own pieces with unexpected objects. For example, transforming an old door into a bench, desk, table or hall tree.
Spending more time at home throughout the pandemic increased the need for separation, peace and quiet and privacy. As a result, broken plans are becoming a popular alternative to open concepts. This trend ensures the interior of a home is as functional and flexible as possible without feeling too formal and closed off.
Achieving a broken plan is as easy as adding pair of sliding barn doors to your main living area to create a light, bright and instantly private area that’s perfect for work or play. The Masonite Barn Doors Kit comes with everything you need to make over any space in 90 minutes.
Marie Kondo’s The Joy of Tidying Up helped homeowners de-clutter their homes and simplify their lives. As a result, the minimalist interior design aesthetic reigned supreme for many years.
But now, homeowners are gravitating toward spaces that look organized yet also personalized. Maximalist elements like patterned walls, ornate doors, expressive art and eccentric furniture instantly add character back into stark spaces.
Although farmhouse is still having its moment in 2022, it is progressing into a more modern style that’s grounded in nature. Instead of rustic furniture and calligraphy wall art, homeowners are opting for natural light and authentic materials.
Oversized windows and doors with glass fill the home with sunshine while elevated accents like wood beams and matte black iron add subtle sophistication.
