Over the past 18 months, more people spent time at home, which allowed them to think about what they wanted. Thus, according to a recent article released by PRNews Wire, the home trend in 2022 involves more designs that showcase one’s creative expression, individuality, and freedom. Make sure you’re aware of these types of designs that are foreseen to showcase one’s creativity and personality so you can consider them before finalizing your 3D rendering plans for your clients. 

Design Trends

Eco-friendly Interiors

Biophilic design has been part of 2021’s interior design trend list. And in 2022, experts forecasted that this design would continue to thrive in the years to come because of the aggravating condition of our planet. Therefore, in your 3D rendering samples, try to  incorporate the following elements:

1. Indoor Plants
2. Organic Materials
3. Nature-inspired shapes and forms

Which biophilic design elements seem exciting and suitable in the architectural 3D rendering you’re planning? Is it coming from the list of indoor plants, organic materials, or nature-inspired shapes and forms?

Before finalizing your thoughts, allow HomeRender to share other trending designs in 2022 that we have included in our list. 

Designs that utilize the colors of nature

Different companies have different versions of their “color of the year.” In our case, we go with Sherwin William (largest paint supplier) version to match practical applications for home, and it is none other than the Evergreen Fog. Check the video below to know what evergreen fog looked like.

Aside from evergreen fog, another color of nature that is bound to trend in 2022, according to design experts, is brown.

Fiona Gould, the founder of  Chelon Design, said that brown would be the new black. She notably stated that the "brown" she's pertaining to are the shades of caramel, tan, and chocolate browns combined with soft creams.

How did you find the designs so far? Are you slowly creating an exciting interior design in your mind? Let's see as we unfold the last two interior designs that we have included in our 2022 list. 


This design is more likely the new version of Shabby Chic. However, cottagecore design more likely resembles the way of life, unlike the former, where certain design elements must be incorporated, like feminine floral prints, slipcovers, designs that signify country designs, and other vintage elements. 

How does cottagecore design work?

If you plan to design a cottage core-inspired living room for your 3D rendering, try to incorporate home elements that allow for a more simple and sustainable life that is harmonious with nature. 

Cottagecore enthusiasts often utilize natural color palettes with neutral and warm tones to accent their place. They also decorate them with dried flowers, fresh flowers, and houseplants. 

You may find that cottagecore has slightly similar elements to the previous two designs we've mentioned. So how does it differ?

Cottagecore embraces history and romanticism, which may not be present in eco-friendly designs, and designs that utilize greens and browns. 

If you can relate with the cottagecore proponents, here are some cottagecore-inspired designs you can use for your architectural 3D rendering.

Extreme Minimalism

The final design that you must take note of this year before you have your 3D rendering samples ready. 

Even if we have seen minimalism in the previous years, 2022 is up to bringing an extreme version of it. This can be traced back to the hard lockdowns, which push people to declutter their belongings to create more space for daily home living activities and ease stress.

Have you ever rendered a minimalist style of rendering before? What would the changes be if you rendered an extreme version of it?  

Let’s take a look at the photo below for a sample 


Eco-friendly interiors, designs that utilize the colors of nature, cottagecore, and extreme minimalism are the design trends that you must consider for good rendering in your architectural 3D rendering projects for 2022.
