If giving your home a new look is on your 2023 to-do list, then you might be wondering how you can design your home in a way that will be both on trend and timeless. While some choices such as mid-century modern and neutral colors will always be a good choice, there are some considerations for 2023 that can help your home have an of-the-moment look. Another benefit of updating your home is that it can increase your home’s value when it comes time to sell.

Earth tones

Calming neutral colors are always a solid choice when you are updating your home’s paint. In 2023, neutral earth tones are on interior designers’ wish lists. Earth tones first gained extra popularity during the pandemic, as they are known for their calming presence. They can also be a bit bold, such as coral, rust, brick, and earthy brown. When applying this trend, you can start with an accent wall in a kitchen, bathroom, or hallway, which will be less of a commitment than painting an entire room. You can also incorporate the earth tones trend with accent pillows, or a lampshade.

Unconventional lighting

Updating your light source is one way to give any room a fresh look. You can either replace lampshades, or change the light fixtures in your home. Adding light benefits your home by making it feel more open and creating the illusion of more space. For lighting with 2023 trends in mind, opt for fabric, paper, and other soft materials.

Find a silver lining

Adding metal accents can elevate your home by giving it a refined look. While any metal — such as brass, gold, or iron — can work well, interior designers are especially talking about incorporating silver. With this unconventional tone, such as for a lamp, mirror frame, or decorative bowl, you can add extra elegance and a modern touch. Silver is also ideal if you are updating bathroom or kitchen fixtures, and cabinet hardware.

Stones and statements

Going along with the earthy trend, incorporating stones and statement glass pieces are also big in 2023. Stone such as granite, quartz, or marble, can be a wise choice for kitchens and bathrooms, but you can also incorporate stone for accent tables, and even lamp bases. For glass, light fixtures, tables, and decorative objects can help add light, create extra space, and modernize any room of your house.

Creative prints and tiles

When it comes to kitchens and bathrooms, updating tiles and adding wallpaper can take your space from dated to modern. Designs for these decorative elements are getting an extra creative twist in 2023, incorporating surrealism and textures that add another dimension that activates the space. These unconventional touches can also help your home stand out to potential buyers.

When making updates to your home start by adding one or two trends to see how they fit with the other elements in your home. You can always add more, using your creativity as a guide.
