If 2021 taught us to explore the potential of every corner of our homes, 2022 promises to consolidate the trends that make domestic spaces increasingly versatile.
The growing concern for well-being and the right balance between dedication to work and one’s mental health will be the main protagonists this year. Therefore, solutions that expand the spaces and make them more versatile become the most sought after by those who want to create a home that welcomes, in the same place, the different needs of its inhabitants.
If you are planning your home, or are simply looking for inspiration to give your home a new look in 2022, here are our tips:
Islands with sliding tops that help delimiting, without limiting, open spaces
Solutions such as the Twice and Twice Top systems allow you to use both sides of the kitchen island according to the needs of each moment: pull the top towards the kitchen when you engage on culinary activities or simply slide it towards the living room when you want to have a table available to study, work, or make a video call that does not feature the kitchen as background.
Other solutions, such as Top 33 and Sestante, help to keep the space organized: when closed, these tops completely or partially cover the worktop and hob, thus helping to keep the house visually cleaner and tidier.
Retractable desks help establish when the working day is over
Pull-out desks or folding desks are effective solutions to officially declare when the working hours are over. In a few moments it is possible to store the entire workstation in a wardrobe, on a shelf or even in a drawer, transforming the same space into a reading or meditation corner where you can take care of your health and well-being.
Let the sunshine in and enjoy the most of natural light at home
The power that sunlight has on our mood, health and well-being is indisputable. So use and abuse of solutions that allow light to circulate more easily through the different rooms, such as sliding glass doors.
Speaking of glass, renovations to use outdoor spaces even during the coldest months have grown a lot in 2021 and should continue in 2022. How about having lunch on a nice table on the veranda all year round?

With the extension of the Italian Furniture Bonus, 2021 is the perfect time to invest in furnishing solutions that make the most of domestic spaces
For those thinking abou refurnishing their homes in Italy, 2021 is the perfect year!
The incentive of the Italian Furniture Bonus, intended to furnish properties which have been reformed last year, has been extended until December 31th 2021 with a new limit of 16 thousand euros.
It could be the perfect opportunity to create multipurpose environments at home, perfectly suited to these post-pandemic times and the new use we make of domestic spaces.
Here are 3 ingenious tips that use transformable furniture solutions, able to make home spaces more versatile and also stylish:
Home Office is King
The global pandemic has made Home Offices the main protagonists of our homes in 2020, but the new ways of working remotely will most probably remain long after Covid is under control: in Italy, for instance, 2 in 3 companies plan to maintain remote working solutions even after emergency.
To create a space dedicated to work or to study is now an investment one cannot renounce to.
For those who want an agile Home Office, concealed solutions a are a great idea. A single movement is enough to extract a large desk from the cabinet, while keeping the internal compartment free to store the comuter, any documents and other office materials.
The great advantage of these solutions, especially in multipurpose environments, is to clearly delimit the spaces and times dedicated to work: opening the workstation desk is equivalent to starting the working day, while closing it means disconnecting and changing the focus to other activities.
Enjoy the Open Space
Space is never enough when you spend many hours at home.
Uniting the kitchen and the living room in an Open Space results in a larger environment and, consequently, increases the feeling of well-being.
Atim creates very useful solutions for the kitchen island. Its various models of sliding tops, for example, can be used in different ways: as an extra surface to place the ingredients while preparing lunch, as a table to invite friends for dinner, as a snack corner for a quick bite. Morover, it is also possible to transform them into a workstation when necessary, use the sliding tops to do homework with the children and even support them with home schooling.
Be inspired by Multifunctional Solutions
Another key concept in any home these days is the optimization of spaces. It doesn’t matter if you live in a big city, where the available square meters are limited, or if you are in a spacious countryside house: the great advantage of multifunctional furniture is to use space and environments in an intelligent way.
The usual cutlery drawer gains an extra function with a top that acts as a table for a quick snack. You can also take advantage of a regular drawer to insert a cutting board, equipped with knife holder and a practical basket for the mixer or waste. Or, if you really want to give carte blanche to your imagination, with the right furniture system you can turn the drawer into a coffee table to be used in the kitchen, where the space and the tables are never enough.
