5 Functional & Stylish Home Remodeling Trends of Summer 2022

Summer is a perfect time to give your home’s aesthetic an update. You have more flexible scheduling, and it’s easy to get out of the house for a weekend or a few weeks on vacation.

Often, great remodeling starts with a single design aspect you love. Maybe it’s a new color you’re drawn to or a feeling and tone you want to create in your home moving forward.

Although each person’s tastes and preferences are different, we’ve compiled the top remodeling trends for summer 2022 to inspire you. Below is a sample of many exciting ideas you can use to update your home!

Kitchen Islands With Built-In Appliances

Kitchen islands have long been a favorite of many design styles, but we’re seeing more and more homeowners choosing to locate appliances within the island itself.

This could be a wine or beer fridge, a microwave nook, or even the kitchen’s range or cooktop. Rethinking the island allows you to maximize your workflow and design a kitchen remodel that will work best for your needs.

Sophisticated Aging-in-Place Designs

If you’re looking to renovate your forever home with accessibility and gaining in place in mind, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics. Many universal design features can be as beautiful as they are functional.

Curbless or low-curb showers, grab bars, and shower benches can be catered to any style or taste while remaining safe and functional for all ages.

Free-Standing Bathtubs

In the past, some homeowners debated whether to keep a tub in the main bathroom, but many are now opting for a luxurious free-standing bathtub in addition to a shower.

There are many great options on the market to fit any style, with a flat-bottom acrylic soaking tub being the most common choice.

Blue Bathrooms

This year, one prominent trend is using the color blue in bathrooms. Blue integrates well with shades of white, gray, and black, making it a great versatile choice.

Many homeowners have been incorporating blue vanities or storage cabinets into their bathrooms to add a nice focal point that doesn’t overpower the room.

Efficient Laundry Rooms and Mudrooms
