Happy New Year! With the fresh new year at hand, you can finally say goodbye to all of the hardships you might have endured, or good riddance to any poor design decision you might have made in 2022. It is time for a fresh new start and one of the best ways to get that fresh new year feel is with a couple of interior renovations.
Let’s take a look at some of the best and brightest interior design concepts that are bound to be popular this year.
Natural Stone Slabs
Natural stone countertops aren’t exactly a new trend but this is a classic that will still be huge in 2023. The prediction for this year is that homeowners are going to take the stone effect a little bit further by extending it to the backsplash through to the ceiling. While this certainly will create a very luxurious feel, it might seem a bit pricey with the current natural stone prices. Don’t worry though, you can always opt for quartz tops and tiles instead. These man-made sheets are just as beautiful, durable, they are available in a much wider range of colours and they are much more affordable.
Vivid Colours Might Make A Comeback
The mainstream home interior trend these past ten years was mostly focused on neutrals, all whites, and cool greys with mostly everything muted. Most interior designers predict that 2023 will be the era of colour and fun. Yes, it is believed that bright colours are going to make a comeback inside homes. With that said, it is best to be a little bit careful when selecting wall paint colours. Vivid walls have a tendency to be overpowering and can draw too much focus. For a soothing yet vivid feel, we recommend warm base colurs like latte shades of brown, earthy red, creamy shades, and buttery hues. You can then pair these base colours with more vivid room accessories for an accentuated feel.
Lots Of Texture
The era of sleek and smooth is gone. Texture is making a comeback because it add lots of visual interest and can give interior spaces a lot more body. You can definitely consider adding more textured features in the form of textured wallpaper, textured rugs or carpets, natural elements like wood or bamboo, and lots of textured pillows and scatters.
Up till now, open-plan kitchens have been the norm in modern households but the closed kitchen design is slowly making a comeback. Instead of open kitchens, a lot more homeowners will be focusing on closed kitchens because it creates a more focused cooking experience and the additional walls is extremely helpful for installing lots of shelving and cabinetry. These closed kitchens are also a blessing in busy households where you might not have the time to clean and wipe countertops right away.
Natural wood and wood grain furniture have been gaining a lot of popularity these past few years. While most people were focused on lighter or faux wood tones like ashy and white tones, more natural wood colours will be popular in 2023. These natural tones with earthy colour pallets are wonderful for adding texture and value to rooms. These types of furniture pieces are also highly durable and stay trendy even as colour schemes and design themes come and go.
