5 Predicted Home Renovation Trends Of 2023
As we move closer to a new year, interior designers and home renovators are already beginning to discuss the coming trends that will be celebrated. Following a few years of upheaval, the values and designs of homes are changing rapidly, with many new trends leading to shortages of resources as manufacturers fail to keep up with sudden demand.
This is why many residents are now looking ahead, wanting to get ahead of that which is soon to be popular and ensure that their home renovations are completed without hindrance. As such, and drawing from some of the most popular industry trends, we’re sharing five essential and predicted home renovation trends, those that are certain to become even more popular as we enter 2023.
Likely inspired by the necessity of lockdown, as well as a growing teleworking culture, multifunction rooms are becoming increasingly sought after. This means that room design and furniture are each becoming more flexible, allowing for a room and its function to be adjusted quickly and easily. Home offices, for example, requiring desk space and storage, can be hosted on a folding or modular desk, one that, at the end of a working day, can be concealed away.
Environmentally friendly living is an ever-growing trend with residents seeking carbon neutrality within their homes. This is leading to a number of home renovations and installations, from solar panels to upcycled furniture.
For those wanting to improve their carbon footprint, the home is a great place to begin and residents can offset their environmental impact with sustainably manufactured furniture, compost systems, and even better insulation.
From garden shed renovations to summer houses, outbuildings are becoming one of the most sought-after assets and will certainly dominate the market next year. Offering property and expansion of space, as well as better use of their garden, even during colder months, these structures are hugely beneficial.
Regardless of how residents choose to use them, whether as relaxation spaces or home offices, they contribute greatly to a home’s value because of their flexibility and potential.
Future Proofing Fun
Smart home technology is, for urban properties, inevitable. Our living spaces will become more efficient, more adaptable, and more technologically advanced. This could be as simple as voice-activated lightbulbs or as advanced as proximity detecting heating systems, those that activate a boiler when individuals or families are at home, then switching off as they leave.
Getting ahead of these advances is a good idea, especially when it comes to wiring a home. Many gadgets will require homes’ electrical systems to be flexible and secure. So, as greater demand is placed upon smart technology, it is beneficial to have your foundations in place.
Open Plan Living
If a wall isn’t essential to a property’s infrastructure, it is increasingly likely that it will come down. Residents are demonstrating a preference for open-plan living spaces more and more, enjoying the amount of light and flexibility such spaces offer a property. Being also conducive to multifunctionality, we can certainly expect homes to become more open and spacious as time goes on.
