It’s a brand-new year, and you know what that means — new remodeling and design ideas! Keep reading to get all the details about our favorite 2023 remodeling trends!
As the population ages, more homeowners are looking to make their spaces accessible to accommodate aging-in-place. While there are ways to make every room in your home accessible, creating a safer, aging-friendly bathroom should be a top priority. Lower countertops, slip-resistant flooring, upgraded light fixtures, and safety rails are the most important elements of an accessible bathroom.
Another big remodeling trend for 2023 is creating multi-functional areas by incorporating flexible design elements. Imagine a home office that doubles as a guest room or a mudroom-laundry room combo. Getting creative with design increases the functionality of your home and ensures it will continue to work for you, even as your needs change.
Home Office Configurations
Remote work is still going strong in 2023, and homeowners are looking to create home office spaces that are both comfortable and practical. Having a dedicated space for work helps maintain a healthy work-life balance and boosts productivity. Incorporate technology like smart boards and projectors, ample storage solutions, and functional lighting to create an efficient, organized space.
Expansive windows, retractable screen doors, enclosed porches, patios and decks, and outdoor kitchens can add outdoor luxury to your home in 2023. Outdoor living spaces aren’t just for warm weather either. Incorporating fire features or heaters into the design ensures this remodeling trend can be enjoyed well into the cold season.
Living arrangements have transformed over the last few years, with young and older adults merging households with family members. This shift in traditional living arrangements has created a demand for homes set up to accommodate multi-generational living. So, it’s no surprise that accessory apartments and in-law suites are a big 2023 remodeling trend! These living spaces typically include their own entrance and kitchen to add privacy and independence, whether it’s a basement suite, garage apartment, or backyard structure.
If you want to ditch the clutter in 2023, a decked-out butler’s pantry is the way to do it. These walk-in storage solutions have everything you need, including a sink, outlets, appliance storage, and ample counter space. If you love to entertain, consider adding a dishwasher and extra fridge!
There are plenty of lighting trends, but it’s safe to say wall sconces are stealing the spotlight! Available in a wide array of styles, wall sconces are an eye-catching way to add soft, appealing light and create a cozy feel inside large spaces.
