Most Popular Home Renovation Trends for 2023

Home trends come and go, but some have staying power. Whether you follow the trends or prefer to just incorporate a few fashionable touches, Truth Design Build is here to help.

Here are the biggest home renovation trends we’re seeing this year.

Spa Getaway Bathrooms

The rise of Airbnb made spa-style bathrooms one of America’s biggest trends. After seeing luxurious bathrooms in their vacation rentals and resorts, people feel inspired to get in touch with home builders about creating the same bathrooms at home.

And why not? Everyone deserves a place to relax after a long day of work. Enjoy luxury bathroom features like a rainfall shower, towel warmer, heated floor, floating extra-long counters, and even a built-in minibar next to your oversized claw-foot soaker tub.

Forbes reports that spa bathrooms aren’t just a fad. They’re a full-on wellness and technology trend that’s in high demand among overworked tech professionals in major markets like Denver, Austin, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Home Offices With Hardwood

According to a new remodeling survey from the National Association of Realtors, home offices and hardwood floors are two home features that receive a perfect “Joy Score” for bringing joy to homeowners’ lives.

Hardwood floors have been popular for decades, but today’s consumers are feeling especially strong connections to the organic style and beauty of dark and mid-toned wood. Both old and new wood floors are extremely popular. Brand-new hardwood floors will last for generations and upcycled barn wood floors come with built-in history from decades of love.

Choose hardwood for built-in cabinets and storage units to give a room instant elegance. If you work from home, consider having a home office built almost entirely from gorgeous hardwood. Your stately study gives you a special place to maintain professional focus.

Bring the Outdoors Indoors

Environmental and nature-themed designs are in high demand. Architectural Digest reports that outdoor-inspired renovations are among the top 10 trends of 2022 expected to continue well into 2023 and beyond.

To take advantage of this trend, think about ways to connect your main living spaces with the outdoors. Look for any opportunity to blend the lines of your indoor rooms into the lines of your exterior living spaces like porches, patios, and outdoor kitchens.

For example, a long wooden ceiling beam in your living room can visually connect to a long wooden beam in a pergola above an outdoor patio. With the addition of sliding glass doors and some cohesive new decor, this area now feels like a huge indoor/outdoor living space.

Instagram-Worthy Kitchens

Food bloggers and influencers have inspired millions to upgrade to photogenic kitchens. A bright and light-filled kitchen looks just as gorgeous in person as it does on screen. Give it all the finishing touches with sparkling hardware and it absolutely glistens with style.

A new Houzz spending study found that the kitchen remains the most popular room for renovations among all U.S. homeowners. It’s also one of the highest-spend rooms, with a 25% increase in renovation spending year-over-year. To put it simply, homeowners think it’s a smart investment to put renovation dollars in their kitchens.

Sharable Spaces

A 2023 trend forecast calls sharable spaces one of the most influential trends of the coming year among Millennials and Gen Z. Sharable spaces are convertible, adjustable, and/or expandable spaces that allow people to coexist in flexible ways.

This trend includes inventive features like the friend’s entry, which is a bonus door that adds a new option for accessing the home from the outside. You can also make a space more shareable with a pop-top addition or home expansion that extends your home upward or outward from its original structure.
