As we enter a new year, many of us are considering giving our homes a much-needed makeover, but what are the top interior design trends for Australia in 2022? Let’s take a look.
Embracing natural light with large windows
One of the first trends that many modern Australian homes will be embracing is making the most of natural light with large windows. Installing large windows, paired with blinds and sheer curtains, is a great way to add interest and depth to a room while embracing Australia’s warm climate and abundance of natural light.

Opening up spaces with sliding glass doors
Interior and exterior sliding glass doors is an interior design trend that was abundant in 2021, and it looks like it’s here to stay in 2022. Installing internal door systems and glass partitioning is a great way to separate your interior spaces, like your home office and living space, without blocking out natural light.
Traditional hinged doors have become outdated as homeowners value making the most out of their existing space with contemporary and open designs. Sliding glass doors can blend seamlessly with the design of your home while adding a sleek and contemporary touch.

Bringing the outside, in
The houseplant trend skyrocketed throughout 2021, and it looks like it is set to continue this year. Bringing greenery into your home is a great way to give your mood a boost and improve the internal air quality of your home.
Whether you have a green thumb or struggle to keep your houseplants alive for more than a month at a time, there’s a species of plant to suit everyone’s needs. Fiddle leaf fig trees are a great option for homes with plenty of light, while sweetheart plants are happy to thrive in shaded spaces. If you’re likely to forget to water your plants frequently, snake plants and cacti could be ideal low-maintenance options.
Minimalism has transitioned from being a popular habit to becoming an interior design trend we’re likely to see in homes across the country. As homeowners attempt to clear out their unwanted belongings at the start of each year, they tend to focus on the core purpose of each room.
By decluttering your space, you can highlight the most basic requirements for each room and strip back unnecessary items to create a clean and organised space. If you think that your home might look a little bare, consider decorating with contrasting colours and textures. Minimalism might not be practical for everyone (particularly those with large families), but if you can achieve it, it can provide you with an open and relaxing living space.
