What people did to their homes in 2021 and trends for 2022

2022 is all about creating main character moments; luxurious bathtubs, crackling fireplaces, sprawling soft blankets and fabrics

TaskRabbit has revealed the tasks the nation needed most help with in 2021, and its home improvement forecasts for 2022.

Using internal TaskRabbit data, identified trends focused on removing the mundane elements of homes as a result of the monotony of lockdown.

Instead, the global tasking platform saw Brits add bold murals and eye-catching furniture to their homes as well as pops of more traditional materials like gingham and linen. Heading into 2022, this will only continue, with terrazzo set to be big, and idyllic window seats being the next must-have home feature.

The last year proved to be the biggest yet for TaskRabbit globally, with bookings increasing by 75%, reaching more than 300,000 in the UK and over 2.8 million globally.

Top-trending tasks of the year:

Livening homes up with bold design choices

Brits were bored of boring and wanted to bring in brightness. This year more murals (+233%), textured walls (+150%), painted ceilings (+132%) and neon lighting (+78%) were installed than ever before.

Cottagecore is key

2021 was all about the aesthetic. With the rise of cottagecore, Taskers saw a 15% increase in requests for gingham, linen, net curtains, and vintage items, while requests mentioning antique furniture soared +84%.

Power (washing) to the people

In the year that satisfying power washing videos went viral on TikTok, the nation was inspired to turn to TaskRabbit for their pressure washing needs, with requests up 134%.
