Minimalism, as defined by Oxford Languages, is a movement characterized by simple, massive forms. The minimalist design prioritizes the essential, it keeps things simple, neutral, and avoids excess clutter to achieve pure elegance. Warm minimalism is derived from minimalism; it combines simple elegance with coziness.

What to do to achieve this style:

  • Follow a warm and neutral color palette based on soft colors
  • Quality over quantity rules, be very selective with the items in your home
  • Add some texture using natural materials
  • Use mirrors, lamps, and tables as accent pieces


Tip for future Lift owners: We recommend the Cibes Air if you want a home lift that fits your warm, minimalistic interior. 



Plants are must-have interior pieces, so it makes us happy to say greenery is here to stay, but not necessarily in the way we are used to. In 2022 bigger is better. We will see a trend in purchasing larger plants instead of tiny succulents.

What to do to achieve this style:

Tip for Lift owners: A great way of decorating the area around your lift is by adding colourful plants on high potters near the lift.



No more fast home decor: in 2022, it’s all about quality over quantity. People will be looking for high-quality, durable materials and adding furniture that brings colour and playfulness to their home environment.

The source of the goods is just as important; ethically sourced materials will be sought after as we stray away from mass production. Refurbishing and renovating will be trending since it is an environmentally friendly way to revive spaces! Needless to say, there is no reason to buy new when you can renew the old!

What to do to achieve this:

  • Buy new products that are built to last
  • Focus on extending the life cycle of your products by giving them the proper care and maintenance
  • Purchase items that have been sustainably produced
  • Look for vintage stores with antique furniture
  • Repurpose old furniture to fit your new style
  • Focus on energy-efficient appliances
  • If you need to get rid of a piece of furniture; always check if your family, friends, or local charity organizations are interested

Tip for Lift owners: Now, if you are a home lift owner and would like to upgrade your lift or give it a different look, the most environmentally friendly way is to modernize your old lift! Read more here:  4 Ways to Extend the Lifecycle of Your Home Lift.

Tip for future lift owners: If you are looking for an energy-efficient lift, and sustainability is one of your concerns, Cibes EcoDrive System is a great option. A lift equipped with Cibes EcoSilent runs with 45% less energy than a lift without it.



What goes around comes back around, they say, and that is why we expect the 70s interior design trends to make a comeback in 2022. Do you think of disco and bold, bright colors when you think of the 70s?

The 70s are characterized by vibrant colors, flowery prints, and eccentric furniture. There is nothing not to love about the fun and eclectic design of the 70s.

5. Natural Materials

In 2022 it will be more common to see raw materials in furniture, appliances, and even lifts! Due to the focus on quality and extended lifecycles, whicker, silk, natural wood, stone, and fibers will become more popular.

6. Multi-functional rooms

Due to the pandemic, home isn’t just a place to dine and watch movies, but it has become an office space. Most of the world had to work from home and adapted their space into a work environment. Because of this, multi-functional rooms and furniture will be in high demand in 2022!

What does this mean? Rooms that can transform from bedrooms to workspaces and living rooms to home gyms will be more common! Multi-functional designs are up and coming, with creative chairs that become tables, room dividers, and mobile furniture, the new trend in functionality is here to stay!
