Leaving behind the year 2022, we eagerly anticipate the potential of 2023, which provides fresh furnishings for our homes. New styles in home decor emerge every year, and 2023 is shaping up to be no different, with experts predicting a mix of contemporary and rustic elements. We chose a few of our favorite trends that custom home builders predict will be popular this year.
It's hardly surprising that shared areas are gaining popularity. By converting some of your existing rooms into multi-use spaces, you can make greater use of the space you already have in your house.
Open floor ideas are trendy, but many people still want private offices, home gyms, and other dedicated multipurpose areas. Recent popular approaches in partitioning vast, open floor designs have included the use of furniture, the purchase of separators, and the creation of invisible borders using color.
Make use of your living room by turning it into a home gym or office. Why let a vacant guestroom go to waste when you could put that extra space to better use? You may also use the spare bedroom as an office, craft area, or gym by relocating the necessary equipment there.
Neutrals and earthy colors
It's hardly surprising that earthy tones and neutrals are trending again after the wild ride of the last several years. Walls painted in soothing pastels like cream, gray, brown, green, or yellow take us back to nature while also providing a sense of calm. It is also possible to combine bold colors with neutrals, such as purple, orange, and dark blue furnishings.
In and after 2023, we predict the second coming of 1970s aesthetics. This includes everything from wooden wall paneling or low-slung furnishings to retro earthy colors like trending brown, burgundy, cognac, ochre, or saffron.
In 2023, it's possible that retro furnishings may once again be popular. Saucer chairs are both aesthetically pleasing and functionally useful due to their rounded, vintage shape. It would be a wonderful touch if you also included cube-shaped shelves or decorations.
Incorporating arches into your house is a popular new trend in interior design. Arch-shaped doors and windows provide a happy medium between the two extremes, making rooms seem both linked and distinct.
Arched entrances are beautiful, but they may be prohibitively costly to have placed in your house. Arched mirrors, window coverings, curvier furniture, and arched décor items are all great ways to incorporate arch patterns into your house without overwhelming the space.
Artisan pieces and sustainability
There has been a rise in interest in arts and crafts in recent years. As a result, many of us now value handmade goods even more highly. This is the year when our homes will be filled (but not overrun) with handmade items produced by us and our favorite makers and tastemakers.
