As we welcome the New Year, it’s a great time to think about what projects you want to tackle in 2023. Perhaps a home renovation or a remodel has been on your list for awhile, and this is the year you’ll finally get it done. Both renovations and remodels can increase the value of your home, while also making it more suitable to your needs. If you’re looking for some home reno inspiration, here are five trends we expect to see a lot of throughout the year.
Everyone needs a place to relax and unwind after a long day, so why not transform one of your bathrooms into a peaceful, tranquil spa-like environment? Features like a large bathtub with jets, soft lighting and calming color choices can make you feel like you’re indulging in a spa day every day. Add some scented candles and soothing music for a final touch.
You may think that wallpaper is very 1970s, but bold and striking wallpaper patterns are back in style. Wallpaper is a great way to add dimension and character to a smaller space, and you can choose to wallpaper one accent wall or all of them. Another benefit of wallpaper is it’s more affordable than paint, so if you’re on a tight budget, consider using a striking wallpaper.
Large Statement Windows
Natural light enhances any room in your home, especially if you live in a sunny climate and enjoy gazing at clear blue skies. Consider adding large windows in your living room and in your kitchen, two rooms where you probably spend most of your time. You can opt for floor-to-ceiling statement windows or a large window bank, built with UV-blocking technology to keep you safe. One of the best things about adding large windows to your home is that it instantly makes the space feel more open.
Kitchen Islands That Are Multi-Functional
If you’ve ever been in a kitchen that has an island, you probably observed that it serves as the central hub of the kitchen, a place where everyone gathers whether they’re eating or not. We’ve seen a recent trend of people saving space by building dishwashers, sinks, pull-out garbage cans and even wine fridges into their kitchen islands, making it a more multi-functional space.
Custom Storage Solutions
Storage is something that many people struggle with, so renovating or remodeling provides you with the perfect opportunity to build custom storage space. Built-in storage features like cubby shelves in the entryway, multiple bathroom hooks, and organizers for all of your electrical cords are a trend we’ll continue to see throughout 2023. You can customize your storage solutions to meet your exact needs, so whether you want your items to be easily accessible or hidden away, there are options for everyone.
