As we welcome the new year, it is a time for reflection and hope for peace, joy, and happiness. But for homeowners, 2023 also represents an opportunity to make their house into their dream home with renovations! Whether turning your bathroom into a tranquil retreat or fixing up the children’s bedrooms—there are infinite possibilities that await when you start sprucing up your abode. Homeowners will be seeking out cost-effective yet sustainable options in this coming year as they begin making adjustments around the house. Here are some of the top remodeling trends we are seeing going into 2023:
Over the past two years, we have all come to realize that even if one’s home is large in size, it may not offer enough space for everyone. This has made multi functional areas a must-have trend of 2023! Modern families are in search of a home that can provide the necessary space for remote work, video conferencing calls, and even homeschooling without feeling cramped. Rooms that are able to serve multiple purposes, such as a workspace that doubles as an educational area or a kitchen equipped to handle daily tasks as well as quick meetings, are becoming essential components of many households today. Dual-use spaces are a must for any home. Make sure to include cozy couches in the office, comfy chairs in bedrooms, and additional seating around the kitchen – allowing others to have meaningful conversations with you while cooking or preparing for their day.
Even if you prefer a minimalist lifestyle, storage is absolutely essential. The current trend of built-in storage guarantees that your belongings are always accessible and organized, while preserving the sleek aesthetic of your home. With this clever style, it’s easier to keep everything neat and tidy without compromising on design!
With built-in storage solutions such as mudroom cubbies and pull-out shelves, the possibilities are endless! Bathrooms can benefit from hooks for extra towels or accessories. Bedrooms and bathrooms can use stylish open shelving to provide more décor options while still offering functional storage. You have complete freedom when it comes to designing your home while making sure you get all the space you need without taking up too much room.
Large Window Banks
Nothing can make a home glow quite like natural light, and the most effective way to access this is by installing an abundance of windows. Whether you choose multiple window walls or opt for something more daring with floor-to-ceiling glazing as the focal point in your space, large panes will completely revolutionize your abode’s appearance. Not only will it create a brighter atmosphere while making smaller rooms look bigger; modern UV-blocking technologies available on many models may even lower energy usage!
The best part? Upgrading to window banks is totally achievable for any budget, so don’t be afraid to let the light in – your home will thank you for it! Speaking of energy efficiency, low-E glass coatings can help keep your room’s temperature regulated and consistent, no matter how hot or cold it gets outside. Plus, if you’re concerned about visibility from the street, these types of windows are available with tinted or frosted glass to offer extra privacy.
If you’re looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, why not create a tranquil spa-like environment within your own bathroom? Set up dim lighting, calming colors, and include both a large bathtub and stand-up shower to truly unwind after long days at home or elsewhere. Take time out for yourself in an oasis created just for you!
To create the perfect tranquil space, introduce a touch of nature and don’t forget to light up some calming scented candles! If your bathroom is limited in storage capacity, built-in shelves or cabinets are an ideal solution. This way, you can have all the items within close reach while hiding them away from view, so that you can preserve your desired peaceful atmosphere.
Do What Feels Right To You. It Is Your Home After All!
Let these trends inspire you; however, remember that renovating or remodeling a space is not an exact science. As you plan your project, take into account your individual personality and lifestyle, as well as the budget available to complete it. Although adding certain features may add greater financial value when selling the home later on, true satisfaction comes from creating a space tailored specifically for how YOU want to live in it most comfortably!
