As our team at Red House gets into the full swing of renovation season, it’s clear why May is National Home Remodeling Month (yes, it’s a real thing). Inspired homeowners (and gardens) are emerging from winter sleepiness and ready to “spring” into action before the oppressive Summer heat takes hold. That said, and with Home Remodeling Month in mind, in this blog post, we’re exploring the top 2023 home remodeling trends. Whether you’re looking to revamp your kitchen, create a luxurious bathroom retreat, or embrace biophilia and sustainable living, these home remodeling trends will inspire you to turn your current house into the home of your dreams!
It’s not exactly breaking news, but the days of isolated and cramped kitchen spaces are gone. Open-concept kitchens have been a trend for years now, and 2023 is no exception. Knocking down walls to join the kitchen with other gathering spaces in the home improves the circulation of space, enhances social interactions, and can even increase the amount of natural light in the room (great for boosting your mood and reducing your electric bills). It doesn’t stop there, either. Homeowners are spending more on kitchen upgrades in 2023 than ever before. From installing high-end cabinetry to integrating the latest smart appliances and splurging on premium materials, people are realizing they don’t have to go out to dine in style.
Bathrooms are no longer simply utilitarian spaces. Instead, homeowners are transforming their bathrooms into luxurious mini-spas to bring the “treat-yourself” vibe to the home. Incorporating features such as walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads, freestanding soaking tubs, heated floors, and even home saunas add luxury and comfort. As with kitchen trends, high-quality materials are also a significant part of this. Incorporating natural stone, sustainably harvested woods, designer wallpapers, and chic decorative tile help create serene atmospheres that allow an escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Outdoor living space upgrades are another trend that’s been gaining significant traction in 2023. After a few restless years of being pent up inside, and with the increased popularity of biophilia, homeowners are ready to take it outside without leaving the comfort of their homes. Blurring the transition between the inside and out, homeowners are adding bigger and better windows to their homes and focusing on cozy outdoor furniture, sunrooms, decks, pools, fire pits–even outdoor movie theaters! Whether you prefer hosting barbecues or relaxing in the yard with a good book, going all out on your outdoor living space will provide the perfect backdrop for enjoying a bit of the natural world without leaving your home.
In line with the growing emphasis on sustainability and environmental consciousness, energy-efficient home improvements are continuing to gain momentum in 2023. Homeowners in Rhode Island are embracing new efficiency standards and municipal stretch codes by opting for eco-friendly remodeling projects. Installing solar panels, upgrading insulation, and replacing older windows with new, energy-efficient ones are among the most popular upgrades a homeowner can make. These improvements help reduce a home’s environmental impact and help homeowners save on utilities while adding value to their homes.
As the year gets into full swing, these 2023 home remodeling trends lead the way and inspire homeowners to transform their houses into personalized staycation destinations. Whether you choose to open up your kitchen by knocking down some walls, splurge on a spa-like bathroom renovation, outdoor upgrades, or energy-efficient home improvements, the possibilities for enhancing your living space are endless.
