When it comes to remodeling your home, the possibilities are endless. Are you planning a complete rehaul of your space? Or maybe just touching up a few walls with a fresh coat of paint? And how do you choose between that tangerine orange or sunkissed tangerine? What does sunkissed tangerine look like anyway? It’s a lot of information to process. If you aren’t sure where to start, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out some of the top design trends of 2023 that will be the perfect inspiration for your dream remodel this spring.
Good news. Gray on gray is not our bae. In a world where gray has been king for several years now, we are now welcoming the riot of color that 2023 is bringing. Classic Blue has been elected the Pantone Color of the Year, but that doesn’t mean that that’s where the use of color stops1. Color is seeping its way into all areas of the house, from bedrooms and office spaces right into those stark-white kitchens. And the best part? The current trend is flexible with how bold your color choices are. Do you love high contrast? Blacks on whites? Whites on blacks? It’s in. Prefer some subtlety in your life? Also in. Especially with warm earth tones and small pockets of color to accent, it’s the perfect way to update your home this spring and year-round.
ProTip Takeaway: Color is in, specifically warm earth tones with bold pockets of color.
We live in a very industrial world, but the benefits of the outdoors to health and mental wellness are immense. It’s no wonder another 2023 trend is to bring some of that outdoor goodness inside. Natural finishes such as wood, rattan, and wicker not only help to soften the feel of a space, they bring comforting warmth and beauty as well.
In addition, the use of these natural finishes is so flexible. Try adding a wood ceiling detail, rattan furniture, or a wicker detail in a custom cabinet. The results can be breathtakingly beautiful and help your space feel natural and livable.
ProTip Takeaway: Natural materials such as wood, rattan, and wicker help soften a space and bring warm, natural beauty.
Your kitchen is one of the most valuable spaces in your home. It’s also where you and your family spend a great deal of time. These two factors alone should make this a priority space for a spring remodel.
While white kitchens with open shelving have been the trend of the past, today's kitchen trends welcome closed cabinets that actually allow you to store things and use the space in a functional way. Because who really only has three canisters and their freshly harvested hanging spices to store on their open shelves? And more importantly, where are they putting their Tupperware?
Another popular kitchen trend for 2023 is to select focal points in your kitchen and add a splash of color. Maybe it’s your island. Maybe it’s a section of cabinets. Maybe it’s that amazing geometric pattern in your backsplash. Another way to do this is to go with a two- or even three-toned kitchen. Gone are the eras of the past where everything had to match. So let your inner creative thrive, and mix and match to your heart’s content. And don’t forget: add some natural wood tones to the mix to bring a little natural beauty from outside, inside.
ProTip Takeaway: Open shelving is out. Closed cabinets with two or more colors can bring warmth and personality to your kitchen.
The power powder-bath trend actually started before this year, but we’re happy to report that it’s still going strong. Powder baths are such small rooms that they can be less expensive to update while still adding style and pizzazz to your home. Bold wallcoverings or tile patterns are a favorite for these miniature rooms. Let your patterns play off each other or go for a high-contrast look through a fantastic backsplash or floor tile. If you do decide to embrace that bold wall pattern though, do yourself a favor and make sure that it will hold up in wet spaces. Your local contractor or designer can help make sure you get a fantastic pattern that will last.
ProTip Takeaway: Use bold wallcovering in your powder bath to add personality. Remember to make sure the wallcovering you select will wear well in wet spaces.
Trying to configure your space to fit a small tub? You might be better off creating a larger walk-in shower. According to a recent study done by Houzz, many homeowners today aren’t including a tub in their master bathroom. Instead, they’re opting to go with a larger walk-in shower2.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you should automatically veto a tub in your master bath. A tub can be a fantastic focal feature and provide an amazing place for a little R&R. Freestanding soaking tubs can be the perfect solution to adding a splash of sophistication while creating a beautiful spa-like ambiance for rejuvenation.
ProTip Takeaway: Tubs can be replaced by a larger walk-in shower. Or if you opt for a tub, select a freestanding or soaking tub.
They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but when it comes to looking at homes, most people start by judging the outside. That’s one of the reasons it’s so important to remember to give a little TLC to the outside of your home too. This can take many forms. It may come from giving your home that paint job it’s been wanting, or adding some siding. Or maybe it’s not your home itself that needs a little TLC, but the yard. Adding a deck, patio, or outdoor kitchen area can not only be a great way to improve your home’s exterior aesthetic but can provide an excellent place to make memories all summer long.
ProTip Takeaway: Add some siding or fresh paint to the exterior of your home. Adding a deck or outdoor kitchen can add an exterior aesthetic.
And last but certainly not least, make your space personal. This is by far our favorite trend of 2023 because it’s all about embracing your styles and preferences. This trend starts by taking what’s already there and mixing in design aspects that reflect you. Maybe it’s your love for color. Maybe it’s the tech-savvy of a smart home or creating that cozy book nook you’ve always dreamed of. Whatever it is, integrating your personality into your space to create something that feels like you are a fantastic remodeling investment to make now because it helps your house feel like your home. And that’s a trend that is timeless.
ProTip Takeaway: Add design aspects into your space that reflect you. This is one trend that is timeless.
