Whether you’re remodeling your home or just want to redecorate, keeping on top of the latest styles and interior design trends will ensure your home is comfortable and fashionable. Picking interior design trends with staying power can even offer a powerful return on your investment if you decide to sell or rent out your home in the future. Before you talk to an interior design expert about your plans for a home renovation, look at these top interior design trends predicted for 2023.
Gone are the grays, beiges, and shades of white that have been a staple of interior design for so long. 2023 ushers in the year of vibrant color choices, colorful accents, and sophisticated color blocking. Plan on using color in a surprising way in each room of your house. For instance, paint your kitchen cabinets a contrasting color to the walls, choose a vibrantly colored wool area rug for the living room, and install colored tiles in the bathroom. If you are brave and bold, you might even choose to use different shades or hues of the same color family in a room’s wall color, flooring or rugs, drapery, cushions, furniture, and other home decor.
Stop buying furniture from big box stores and start buying it from local craftsmen. In 2023, we’ll see a dramatic shift towards supporting local artists and craftspeople when seeking out home furnishings and decor. Look for furniture that will stand the test of time and be passed down through generations of your family. Pick out large, natural wood dining tables, butcher block kitchen countertops, hand-crafted cabinetry and shelving, and anything else that is designed thoughtfully and lovingly. Visit local furniture makers in your area and ask your interior design consultant to recommend some companies that specialize in hand crafted furniture.
As the saying goes, everything old is new again. In 2023, we’ll see people shopping vintage stores, flea markets, and estate sales for quality vintage furniture and retro home decor to add a whimsical, funky element to their home decor. Rather than cookie cutter home decor that every other neighbor on your street has, seek out unique pieces that can’t be replicated. Shopping for vintage decor is not only eco-conscious and environmentally friendly, but it can also make a confident statement in your overall home design.
More and more people are embracing elaborate displays of indoor greenery throughout their homes in 2023. We are seeing people combine botanical prints and fabrics with indoor greenhouses, hanging air plants, lush aquaponic gardens, and vibrant green succulents. Living plants can make your home seem warmer and more inviting, while also offering emotional and health benefits to you and your family. Combining living plants with natural stone, wood furniture, warm colors, and organic fabrics creates an environment that is genuine, welcoming, and fresh.
If replacing your kitchen cabinets is a part of your home renovation plan, consider choosing natural wood cabinetry. Wood cabinets look classic and clean, without giving in to the whims and trends of previous years. In 2023, the primary interior design and renovation focus will be trends that stand the test of time and won’t grow old or tired. Natural wood cabinetry is a solid investment that will last for decades without looking dated.
Another key interior design trend of 2023 focuses on mixing old with new. As we discussed with hand crafted furniture, vintage pieces, and natural wood cabinetry, you can also combine natural plaster walls with botanical print wallpaper to create cohesive interior design. Limewash and plaster walls look natural and antique, but in a rich, elegant, and surprising way. Combining natural walls with nature-inspired wallpaper carries your design theme from room to room and brings further warmth and life into your home. Choose neutral colors for your limewash and plaster walls and use wallpaper on one or two walls as an accent. Look for wallpaper with patterns in vibrant, natural colors like orange, green, blue, red, and brown.
In keeping with the elegant, natural interior design created by natural woods, fabrics, and living plants, your lighting should also be fresh and bright. Opt for natural lighting whenever possible by covering windows with gauzy drapery or paper shades. Use lighting fixtures and lampshades made from paper, fabric, silk, or linen for a soft, ambient glow and dreamy atmosphere. Avoid large metal or glass lamps, as those will look heavy and overpowering. Instead, choose lamps or lanterns that have thin wooden rods or bases, or look for lamp bases that are nature-themed, such as birds, plants, or animals.
Natural stone flooring is an elegant, timeless home renovation element. Your interior designer can recommend natural stone flooring that works for your family’s lifestyle and budget. Most home renovation companies offer terrazzo, stained concrete, Spanish tiles, travertine, marble, slate, granite, and more. You can also use natural stone elsewhere in your home to continue with your overall interior design theme. For instance, your interior design consultant may suggest natural stone tiles for backsplashes, shower tiles, countertops, and trim.
Another amazing way to add color and texture to a room is by using tile countertops. Tile is unique, vibrant, and easy to install. You can typically choose between solid colors or patterns, and you can often find hand painted tiles with botanical or nature themes, like flowers, butterflies, birds, and animals. You can even ask your interior design consultant to design a mosaic-like pattern with cut pieces of tile and glass. Colored tiles can also be used in your bathroom, shower, and backsplashes.
