5 New Home Must-Haves for 2022

By Laura O'Sullivan

People looking for a new home this year have most, if not all of these items on their must-have list.

When looking for a new home, how many must-have items are on the list? Here, we explore our top five things homeowners are looking for this year.

  1. Home office

A home office or co-working space is high on the list for those looking to move home. Due to the pandemic, home working has increased and is set to stay meaning people are looking for more ways to utilise a room as an office. Co-working space is also becoming increasingly more in demand.

  1. Natural light

Natural light is a big must-have for many people when looking for a new property and can transform even the smallest of spaces to feel bright and airy rather than cramped and dark. A home that’s flooded with natural light creates a welcoming and healthy place to visit and live.

  1. Downstairs WC

A downstairs loo is topping the list of new home must-haves. They make a convenient space for guests to use rather than going upstairs to the family bathroom. A downstairs loo makes life easier for the elderly, disabled and children to use, making visits more comfortable for everyone. As well as ease for guests, a downstairs toilet also adds value to your property when the time comes to sell.

  1. Open-plan kitchens

Open-plan designs have become increasingly more popular to have. They provide functionality that allows for a more sociable way to live. Multi-purpose rooms allow for more natural light to fill the room whilst being more practical and versatile in use.

  1. Energy efficiency

An energy-efficient property has become everyone’s priority due to the recent increase in gas and electricity bills. There are multiple ways to make your home more efficient. New builds are known for being far more energy-efficient than older properties due to new installation, double glazed windows and new boilers.
