Outdoor Spaces: The Top Trends of 2022


During the coziness of the winter season, it's easy to keep your focus solely on your interiors, but if you're looking ahead to warmer months, right now is the ideal time to get a head start on your patio updates. To help you create the perfect outdoor space, here are the top trends to keep in mind for 2022.


Maxed Out Modern

A great way to maximize your outdoor space is by incorporating elements like lighting, heating, and shade, so it's usable no matter the time of day or season. Not only are homeowners looking to maximize their outdoor space—they want to modernize it, too.


As a part of a more modern patio space, clean lines are essential. Geometric patterns are big, as they offer clean lines and an uncluttered look. Flooring is becoming more geometric as well, as we see more exciting layouts with hexagons and herringbone patterns.



Luxe Entertainment

There is already a significant rise in demand for outdoor kitchens, and some homeowners are taking that to the next level with luxury custom entertaining zones. We're seeing large outdoor kitchens with island grills, pizza ovens, bars – and even dishwashers and fridges.

Outdoor living rooms are trending as well, and many homeowners are adding TVs and projectors to catch the game or have a fun outdoor movie night.



A Hot New Update

Fire pits are always a welcome addition to a cozy outdoor space, but the latest trend is a fun new update– the fire table. Fire tables offer a sleek look that perfectly complements the modern design trend.



Color Cues

Monochromatic color schemes are an interesting trend we're seeing, especially when paired with pops of color in outdoor furnishings, plants, and other decor. Dark accents in hardscaping and landscaping are also huge, with deep tones being used for walkways, retaining walls, and more.



Plan Ahead

As you're designing your outdoor space, keep this in mind: PLAN. It's critical that you think ahead about your most-wanted features because adding them later will likely be less cost-efficient and more tedious.
