Interior Design Trends for Your Home in 2023
2023 Interior Design Trends for Your Home
In 2023, we are seeing a resurgence of creativity and joy in interior design after two years of the global pandemic. Homes are focusing on the creation of environments that stimulate the senses, encourage creativity and productivity, and serve as a sanctuary for our well-being. Most homes in the last two years have been designed to be calm and relaxing, with an emphasis on simplicity and minimalism. There’s a growing demand for other forms of visual stimulation due to the increasing amount of time people spend inside their homes. Creating a sanctuary with thoughtful touches, additional soothing textures, and plants and artwork that sparks positive emotions and brings back fond memories. Desirable features such as window views and natural light are also becoming more and more sought after for home offices. Whatever your decorating style, 2023 is the year to let your creativity and enthusiasm shine through!
Here’s what to look forward to in interior design in 2023.
1. HOME AS A PLACE FOR INSPIRATION AND CREATIVITY
The home office has always been a place for work, but it’s now also a spot for creativity and inspiration. With work-from-home policies becoming the norm, there has been a recent uptick in the demand for home offices that provide a spectacular view, substantial daylight, and ample space. Home is where the heart is. Hobbies at home always bring happiness, and the home is a chance to exhibit one’s distinctive style through artwork and display shelves. Whether you’re working on a new project or looking for creative inspiration, a home office filled with inspiring books, artwork and the best view in the house is the perfect place to do so. Glass doors with curtains allow for a creative home office to serve multiple purposes, from social to secluded, and back again.
2. RECONNECT TO TRADITION AND TIMELESS DESIGN
While modern, natural, and minimal shapes continue to be popular in kitchen design, traditional accents are making a comeback. Wall paneling, cut stone, fine furniture craftsmanship, classic patterns, and vibrant color palettes are all returning to the scene. This trend, we feel, is a response to the growing desire for a more personal and unique kitchen design. So, if you want to add a touch of traditional elegance to your kitchen, be bold with your favorite color and keep these things in mind!
3. HOME RETREAT
Imagine waking up to the sun rising over the mountains and the fresh scent of pine in the air. You can enjoy the natural beauty from the comfort of your own home, with a view of nature from your window and a garden right outside your door. Imagine also having your own private spa, where you can relax and rejuvenate after a long day. With a home like this, you could enjoy a cozy nook for reading and meditation whenever you want, making your home feel like a luxurious retreat. Using natural materials, earthy textures, plants, and soft indirect lighting, you can transform any room into a relaxing sanctuary.
4. HOSTING AT HOME
Home design is not just about the furniture and the layout of the room. It’s also about the accessories and decorative touches you use to personalize the area. Adding the perfect finishing details to your home’s design can be as simple as choosing the perfect tableware to enhance your dining experience. Consider using warm indirect lighting, such as wall lights, floor lamps and table lamps, as your primary sources of lighting, rather than modern commercial recessed down lights that can detract from the intimate and relaxing ambiance. Complete your dining room with the perfect matching dinnerware set that can make everyday feel special.
Many people are rediscovering their love of cooking, and there has been a rise in the prevalence of designs that blur the lines between the kitchen and the rest of the house, such as the island kitchen or the bi-fold door that separates the two. With a few easy adjustments, you can create a beautiful and welcoming house where all guests will feel right at home.
5. PLANT WITH PERSONALITY
More and more people are adding plants to their indoor and outdoor spaces, and this means that it’s more vital than ever to pick the right plants for the right spots. Contemplate the plants you put in each room as works of art, and choose them with care so that their aesthetic fits in with the rest of your decor. When choosing plants, think about the range of leaf shapes, colours, and textures you’d like to see. Selecting the right plants for outdoor spaces can also help bring in biodiversity.
6. PET-FRIENDLY DESIGN
There has been a rise in the number of people who keep pets in their homes since the pandemic began. Many homeowners now include their pets in the design process of their homes. In response to pets’ reported allergies, we’ve made it a priority to specify pet-friendly carpeting and furnishings, as well as pet-friendly plants and landscape modifications. Pets are often given the same level of care and attention as their owners’ children. We have even created pet rooms! It is proven that having a pet at home can not only provide companionship and love, but also has health benefits – such as reducing stress levels.
7. NATURE-INSPIRED DESIGN
A nature-inspired home is one that celebrates the organic shapes and textures of the natural world. From the rough-hewn logs of a cabin in the woods to the sleek lines of a modern glass house, there are endless possibilities for incorporating nature into your home design. One of the most popular ways to do this is by using textured walls, which can add a sense of depth and richness to any space. Whether you’re looking to create a rustic retreat or a modern oasis, nature can be a great source of inspiration for your home design.
8. MINIMAL TECHNOLOGY AT HOME
At home, we are minimizing our use of technology to focus on human connection and better sleep quality. According to a study by the National Sleep Foundation, 95 percent of Americans use some type of electronic device within an hour of bedtime. This can be bad for your sleep quality. The good news is that there are ways to reduce your screen time and improve your sleep. One way is to create a media-free bedroom to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields, including TVs, laptops, phones, and tablets. It is recommended that charging devices not be done at bedside tables but rather at an additional charging station outside the bedroom. If you’re guilty of mindlessly scrolling on your phone before bed, perhaps it’s time to make reading your bedtime ritual instead.
9. SUSTAINABLE AND NON-TOXIC DESIGN AS A STANDARD
At Liquid Interiors, we take sustainable and non-toxic design standard very seriously. For instance, we only use wood that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which guarantees that trees have been harvested and managed ethically and that there will be no net loss of forest over time. Furthermore, we will recycle, reuse, or repurpose any furniture or materials that will be removed throughout the renovation or demolition process, in addition to incorporating recycling systems in our clients’ homes. We also ensure that all work and study rooms have enough of natural light by strategically placing windows, smart window coverings, and energy-efficient lighting and appliances throughout all of our projects.
Creating and maintaining non-toxic home environments is a top focus for us. Factors including ventilation, VOCs, CO2, chemicals, temperature, and humidity are evaluated to determine the quality of air in a home. We will perform a complete fresh air flush out of the property once construction is complete and undertake air quality testing to ensure the highest possible standard of air quality for our clients from the moment they move in.
In 2023 don’t be afraid to create your dream space that makes you feel like you are at your best. Design for your needs but also design in a way that makes you feel at home and shows your personality. Whether it’s a kitchen in your favorite color, a secret bookshelf door to a hidden room, displaying your handmade crafts, or plant pets let your home tell your story.
