Home improvement trends unpacked | Woodworking Network


A new study1 from Singulart reveals how many people have renovated their homes in the past year, as well as the hotspots of 2022 and the interior trends that are expected to dominate.

When asked about work done on their home throughout 2021, of the 86.82% who did, the average renovation took 2.83 months and cost $6,367.04, the room bathroom, kitchen and backyard being the most popular rooms to transform.

But how does this compare to the city level throughout the year?

New York City was crowned the renovation hotspot for 2021 with 93.94% agreeing that they spruce up their home, taking 2.88 months to complete and costing perhaps $7,297.90. Jacksonville (93.44%) and Phoenix (92.86%) placed second and third, with both cities spending between $5,985.83 and $5,992.75, just below the national average.

Among the top 10 cities to renovate is San Diego, which happens to be the site of Wood Pro Expo California scheduled for April 27-29, 2022. In addition to booths showcasing woodworking machinery and supplies, a program of conference will offer important information to help woodworkers manage their business and improve their processes. Conferences include adding cabinets to a company’s operations.

With redecoration plans set to continue through 2022, the top 10 renovation hotspots for next year are:

Top 10 hotspots for renovations in 2022.

San Antonio takes the top spot for the city with the most renovation plans in 2022, with 94.12% of residents sharing their thoughts on upcoming plans. El Paso comes in second, followed by Los Angeles in third.

However, when it comes to those who can’t forget remodeling, New York (93.94%), San Diego (91.30%), Houston (90.91%), Los Angeles (89.66 %) and Austin (88.24%) residents all said they had made changes to their homes in the past year, as well as plans for this year – talking about renovation fever.

With remodeling and interiors often going hand in hand, Singulart also revealed the top interior trends set to take 2022 by storm. Modern (15.55%), Modern Farmhouse (13.24%) and Country (11.07%) are the styles Americans will implement the most in their homes — think herringbone floors, layered white-on-white, or stone and brick walls accompanied by sturdy, wooden furniture.

Commenting on the research, Marion Sailhen, Chief Curator at Singulart, said: “It is clear that renovations are at the top of most people’s agendas as we prepare to enter a new year, and it is really interesting to see what interior styles those who opt for remodeling.

“If a modern aesthetic is high on your list, we recommend minimalist art styles or even geometric pieces. Whereas if your plans are a modern farm or country, nature, animal or landscape pieces will complement them best.
