Home office configurations

One of the most popular home improvement trends for 2023 and beyond is the inclusion of home offices. With more people working from home, many homeowners want to invest in creating comfortable and practical office spaces. In addition, how you organize and decorate a room can impact your energy levels and productivity, which is why it can be helpful to create a space for work that's separate from where we sleep or eat. If you have an extra guest bedroom or an unused living space this year, consider making it into your home office. You can design this area to suit your needs as a workspace perfectly.

There are many features you can add to make your office more comfortable and efficient, such as:

- Technology (smart boards, projectors, etc.)

- Custom furniture and storage solutions

- Ergonomic lighting fixtures

- Comfortable seating options

Building a home office allows increased productivity, improved work-life balance, and reduced commute time, whether you're a full-time freelancer or need a dedicated space to get some work done in your downtime.

Sustainable design and features

To support the environment and do their part to combat climate change, many homeowners are investing in eco-friendly home renovations and adding more sustainable designs to their homes.

You can save energy by switching to LED lights around the house, using water-saving fixtures, and getting low-flow toilets. Additionally, you can install big windows to let in natural light, which will help heat the home during winter and save electricity. You can also choose more sustainable furniture options and recycle throughout your home.

Using sustainable materials, solar panels, and energy-efficient appliances to update your home helps reduce strain on the environment and improve your home's appearance. To create a more sustainability-designed home, consider your carbon footprint and how daily activity at home impacts the planet.

Spa bathroom

Another popular home renovation trend for 2023 is the spa bathroom.

Spa bathrooms are popular spaces where you can unwind and relax in your home. Creating a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom can be easily done at any level.

If you're looking to renovate your bathroom into a spa-like experience, you can add several luxurious features, such as ambient lighting and hydrotherapy jets. You can also use natural wood and stone to create an inviting oasis. And remember, extra storage for small items and self-care products! You can transform your bathroom into a luxurious and relaxing retreat with just a few simple changes and additions.

Smart home technology

Since we rely on our electronic devices more now than in the past, many choose to include smart home features. Homeowners are increasingly installing smart home technology to help keep their families safe. Smart home security might consist of outdoor cameras or alarms, smart locks on exterior doors, or upgrading existing security systems. Other popular types of smart home technology include:

  • Smart locks and lights.
  • Thermostats.
  • Appliances you can control with the touch of a button or your voice due to interconnected automation systems.
  • Fast-charging power outlets

With the rapid advancement of technology and increasing demand for convenience and connectedness, smart home technology will continue to be a popular trend in home renovations for years to come.

Increased storage

Installing more storage solutions is a popular trend in home renovations. Many homeowners choose to invest in home renovations that include additional storage space, especially as the size of families continues to grow. Today, people want their homes to look sleek while hiding away what they need.

You can add many storage options to your rooms, including custom walk-in closets and built-in bookshelves. Dedicated storage units in the garage or mudroom, kitchen cabinets with pull-out shelves, and under-bed storage drawers are all options to hide things away and streamline the look of a room. Stylish open shelving is also perfect for bedrooms and bathrooms since it provides decoration and a place to store items.

Enjoyable outdoor spaces

Another popular home renovation trend for 2023 is the creation of enjoyable outdoor spaces.

With more time spent outside and an increased focus on wellness, many homeowners are investing in outdoor kitchen areas, rooftop patios or balconies, or even home gyms that you can use outdoors.

Make the most out of your home by transforming your backyard into an outdoor oasis. Adding features such as a sitting area with tables and couches, a beautiful rug, a pergola or awning for sun protection, and even things like a fireplace or TV can turn your backyard space into somewhere you love to relax and entertain guests. From adding an outdoor kitchen area to converting unused space into a functional patio or balcony, there are many options for creating an enjoyable outdoor space that fits your needs and lifestyle.

Unique furniture

Modern, mid-century furniture designs can elevate a room and be a great conversation piece for visitors. With newer furniture becoming more expensive and often mass-produced, many homeowners have turned to vintage or refurbished components to add character to their homes. Not only are these older items usually cheaper, but they can also inject some much-needed personality into a room.

Visit your local flea markets, yard sales, estate sales, or antique stores to get a vintage feel. One-of-a-kind pieces or those that have been upcycled (with new upholstery or paint) are ideal for a lived-in look at a fraction of the price of something new. Vintage items in your home also support sustainability and eco-friendliness.

Interesting textures

In addition to unique furniture, many homeowners are opting for exciting textures and bold wallpaper to add visual interest to their homes. With modern interior design becoming increasingly minimalist, texture can help bring life into a space.

From fluffy rugs to velvet sofas and textured wallpapers, incorporating more tactile elements into your home is a great way to add warmth to the house. 

Faux finishing uses applied materials to imitate installed materials, and faux finishes have become increasingly popular in recent decades due to the vast array of styles and structural options. For example, a faux finish can create a Venetian plaster look, faux brick wall, concrete, or marble, or you can use it on top of existing surfaces to change the appearance without having to do expensive work.

Accessible bathrooms

Another popular home remodeling trend for 2022 is accessibility. As our population ages, many homeowners are looking to make their homes more accessible and perfect for aging in place. By installing features such as grab bars and safety rails, as well as updated fixtures and hardware to be easier to use, bathrooms can become more accessible. Other standard accessibility upgrades include lowering countertops, adding support under sinks, moving electrical outlets and light switches to more convenient locations, widening doorways, and upgrading flooring are a wise remodel, particularly in the primary bathroom.

Whether you're looking for simple updates or significant remodeling projects, there are many popular trends to consider. From eco-friendly upgrades to smart home technology, endless options and levels of upgrades can help transform your home into an ideal space. We hope you enjoyed these popular trends to watch out for in 2023 and beyond, and for more resources, visit the Doorstead blog.
