2023 Home Design Trends

If you’re planning on building a custom home in the new year, you might want to start looking at design trends to give you some inspiration. Home design in 2023 will experience quite a bit of change, with trends driven by both innovation and tightened budgets. Here are some ideas to motivate and excite you as you plan for your new home.


The color you use in your home can make a statement and in 2023, bold and moody colors are making a comeback. When balanced with good lighting, they provide unmatched warmth and depth to your space. Think black or dark blues and greens for an extra luxe boost in your new home.


The use of texture draws the eye and creates a warm and cozy environment in your home. Consider fluted details in your cabinets or bathroom vanity, large patterned wallpaper in your bedroom, or bold floor tile in your laundry room. Use wood beams to highlight your vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows.


Maximize your square footage and turn every nook into functional space. Convert that unused corner or understairs area into a convenient home oce space. Take a dead-end hallway and transform it into a cozy reading area. The thought you put into how your home layout functions can really pay off.

Nature Inspired

Biophilic design has been trending for a while and has no plans of going away anytime soon. Reflect nature throughout your home with your choice of color, wall art, and even the use of plants. Living walls are a great way to create drama with the added bonus of improving air quality for your family.
