Design Trends

If you're ready to start planning your projects for 2023, our brokers suggest exploring some of the new interior design trends that might be a good fit for your home. Here are some of the top 2023 design trends. 

  • Wallpaper with Bold Colors and Patterns
    While wallpaper has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years, this trend is expected to become even more popular in 2023. Adding wallpaper to a wall, nook, or built-in is an easy way to incorporate color and fun prints into your home's decor. 
  • Intricate Surfaces
    Countertops with ornate patterns are a top selection as more homeowners add statement pieces to their kitchens. These intricate patterns are popular across a variety of kitchen counter materials, including marble and granite. Some of these designs also incorporate dramatic colors for a bolder look.
  • Light-Colored Kitchen Cabinets
    As homeowners opt for darker-colored countertops, they'll lean towards light-colored cabinets to create an aesthetically pleasing contrast and brighten up their kitchens. White cabinets and cabinets with light staining will both be popular selections. 
  • Nature-Inspired Elements
    Tones, shapes, and textures inspired by nature are expected to appear in more homes. Furniture, wall trim, and other decorative elements will feature soft, rounded curves intended to replicate the shapes found in nature. Expect decorative pieces, like bowls and vases, to use different textures that lend visual complexity to a space. Soft browns, mossy greens, and tranquil blues will be popular hues for wall paint and artwork. 
  • Sleek Appliances
    As homeowners design kitchens that showcase their style using bold elements, they want their appliances to complement the space rather than attract attention. Appliances that are sleek, efficient, and offer a terrific cooking experience will be top options. 
  • Decorative Elements with Stripes
    Wallpaper, window coverings, rugs, and painted designs will embrace striped patterns to create a dramatic, attention-grabbing look. Striped pieces use visual contrast to attract attention to the space. 
  • Gold Hardware and Fixtures
    Fixtures and hardware with gold finishes are sophisticated options that go well with a variety of home decor styles. Depending on the hue, gold can add a contemporary feel to the room, or it can be used to complement a more traditional space. 
  • Hobby Spaces
    Homeowners want areas where they can have fun. Whether they like to listen to records, sew, knit, paint, write, exercise, or read, they want dedicated spaces where they can relax. You don't need an entire room to create a hobby space. Extra closets and corner nooks are both excellent alternatives for homes where adding a dedicated hobby space feels tricky. 
  • Coffee Stations Outside of the Kitchen
    A more luxurious trend that's surging in popularity is setting up a coffee station somewhere in a home other than the kitchen. Perhaps the main bedroom has an area to set up a brewing station (and eliminate the morning trek to the kitchen for an invigorating cup of coffee). Or, maybe the home office would benefit from a coffee station so that you can quickly grab a cup while you're working. 
  • Curated Items
    Homeowners are forgoing minimalist decor trends and focusing on adding items and styles to their homes that they love. This includes collections and artwork, along with prints and patterns. 
  • Inviting Laundry Spaces
    As more homeowners realize the value of an attractively decorated laundry room, more homes will have laundry rooms that are inviting and stylishly decorated. Laundry rooms will feature sleek organizational systems along with wall pieces and floral arrangements that add character to the space. 

As we head into 2023, there are a host of home trends to inspire and motivate homeowners to create and design rooms that are inviting, stylish, and functional. Ready to purchase a property with more space? Contact us to get started.
