1. Accent Walls

An accent wall, otherwise known as a "feature wall," is a wall that has a different design that makes it outstanding among other walls. Accent walls have been trending in 2021 and will continue to become a home feature that designers look forward to seeing on the 2022 list. Accent walls could showcase your client's personality and sense of artistic expression. Including them in your designs could make your architectural 3D renderings more customizable and likable.

The accent wall is best featured in the chimney breast of the living room or the wall behind the bed headboard. But it could be anywhere else your client like to see them most. 

To start, get to know your client a little more, then start drafting the "statement" or "appearance" that expresses their personality. Explore how other people who have the same personality make theirs. Don't limit your client's accent walls to paints and wallpapers. Be as creative and resourceful as possible.

2. Multi-functional Spaces and Convertible Furniture

The existence of the pandemic allowed your clients to discover that it is now possible for a part of their homes to be turned into an office, gym, or cinema. If prospective clients have kids, explore the idea of having a study room beneath stairs on your rendering. 

If your client wants a design for their tiny home, try to include convertible beds/sofas in your 3D rendering for their small space. You may also share with them the idea of turning tables into a divider, wall paintings into chairs, cabinets into television wall mounts, and beds into living room walls.

3. Curves on Furniture and Décor

Based on most designers,  Straight lines and smooth and sharp edges will temporarily be out of trend. 2022 will pave the way for more rounded shape furniture and home decor. According to professionals, round shapes or curvy figures provide soothing energy, tranquility, and fluidness to a space that perfectly complements the world’s current condition. If your client is currently aiming for an updated style, make sure to incorporate curves in your 3D renderings for their home.

4. Art-Deco Patterns

If your client is into displaying luxury and glamour, you might want to think about including this feature at home. Incorporate sleek furnishings. Zigzags, trapezoidal, triangular, chevron, sweeping curves, and other geometric patterns on your 3D renderings. You may showcase these design elements on your client’s furnishings that are attached or displayed on their walls, ceilings, or floors.

5. Kitchen-Slab Backsplashes

In 2021, kitchens with solid (slab) backsplashes became popular. According to experts, these slab backsplashes will continue to thrive in 2022. 

A slab backsplash refers to a modern kitchen style that shows no distinction between the kitchen’s countertops and its walls. Granite, Marbles, and Quartz are the most common materials used by homebuilders in creating solid slab backsplashes. 

Take a look at the photos below for some of the most popular slab backsplashes in 2021. Take inspiration from them so you can include some more appealing kitchen features in your 3D Rendering.
