Say Goodbye to These Home Design Trends: What’s Out in 2023

Whether you are a homeowner looking to update your living space or a seller preparing to put your property on the market, keeping up with home design trends is essential. However, as we head towards 2023, it's time to bid farewell to a few outdated design elements that no longer fit today's aesthetics. The good news is that this opens up new opportunities for fresh designs to come in. In this blog post, we discuss the home design trends that are out in 2023.

Open Concept Floor Plans

While the open-concept floor plan was all the rage in the past years, it's now time to phase it out. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of having defined spaces and separate zones within the home. An open-concept design, which merges the living room, kitchen, and dining spaces, can make for a noisy and uninviting environment for entertaining or just relaxing. Instead, homeowners and buyers are looking for more closed-off spaces that offer focused areas without disrupting the rest of the house.

Granite Countertops

Yes, granite countertops have been a mainstay in kitchen design for years, but their time is up. Today's homeowners and buyers are searching for a more personalized, eco-friendly, and low-maintenance countertop material. Quartz, concrete, and recycled glass countertops are gaining popularity, offering durability and versatility with modern designs.

Matching Furniture Sets

A matching furniture set may seem coordinated, but it can make a room appear monotonous and impersonal. Instead, mixing furniture styles and material finishes adds texture and personality to a room, creating a subtle contrast that draws the eye and keeps things from appearing too "matchy-matchy."

Accent Walls

Accent walls reached their peak back in the '90s and early '00s, but since then, designers have slowly moved away from the "feature wall" trend. In 2023, homeowners and buyers are looking for bold design statements and striking décor that doesn't have to rely on a single painted wall. Instead, consider unique wall coverings like textured wallpaper, or even mixed patterns and colors, to produce the "wow" factor.

Busy Patterns

Having a patterned design in the home can add persona

ity and style; however, over-the-top and busy patterns are an outdated trend. In 2023, subtle patterns will be more popular, along with textured walls. Stripes, florals, and polka dots are giving way to single solid colors, alon

g with subtle prints and tactile wallpaper patterns that add depth and interest to a room without overwhelming the space.

Home design styles are constantly evo

lving, as trends come and go. By keeping your finger on the pulse of these changes, you can ensure that your home remains current and stylish, attracting buyers or guests alike. If you're considering renovating, redecorating, or selling your home, take note of the design trends that are out in 2023. Remember, always keep design practicality in mind, while also giving consideration to aesthetics and personalization. By staying true to these principles, you can create a space that's not just fashionable, but functional and inviting for years to come.
