In our latest ongoing interior design series, we'll explore the most popular interior design trends that are guaranteed to fill up your Instagram feed, TikTok For You Page, and Pinterest mood boards this year.
As a modern designer and custom home builder, we always strive to stay on top of the latest design trends to ensure our clients' homes are as stylish, elegant, and timeless as can be.
With spring in full swing, now is the perfect time to start thinking about how you can incorporate some of this year's hottest interior design trends into your home to refresh your space and make it feel truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
Here are the design trends our interior design team is most excited about this year:
1. Fluted Tile
From wall tiles to furniture to cabinetry and trim, fluted textures can add a rhythmic and repetitive detailing to your home. Vertical fluted tile can help turn your static space into a dynamic one with depth and movement that makes walls appear taller and helps draw the eye upwards. We're confident you'll be seeing fluted tiles and textures being used as kitchen backsplashes or bathroom accent walls throughout 2023.
2. Vertical Stacked Subway Tile
Subway tile has been an extremely popular trend for seemingly the past decade, but in 2023, it's the vertical subway tile that is set to take center stage. Similar to the fluted tile, the vertical stacked subway tile helps draw your eye upward—giving the illusion of more height. Perfect for bathrooms with smaller ceiling heights, use this modern twist on a classic design on your shower wall or as an accent on your vanity to help create a modern and streamlined look that is both elegant and practical.
3. Slab Tile
Another versatile option, slab tiles offer a large format that can be used on a variety of different surfaces from backsplashes to countertops to even flooring and wall cladding. Slab tiles offer a sleek, modern, and seamless look that is both practical and beautiful. Look to use this luxurious and sophisticated finish to help complement your unique, contemporary style.
4. Wood Slats
Wood slats have been all the rage recently and we feel this trend is set to continue into 2023 and beyond. Offering a warm and natural look, wood slats are a great way to add depth and texture to any space including on the ceiling, as an accent wall, or even as a room divider. Consider wood slats as an incredibly impactful yet subtle way to add interest to your modern home.
5. Backlit Integrated Vanity Mirrors
The perfect combination of function and beauty, backlit vanity mirrors provide a soft, flattering light to any bathroom to help aid in your daily morning routine or assist with getting you ready for a night out on the town. Either way, these vanity mirrors are set to become a household staple and will create a spa-like experience in your home that you will love.
6. LG Styler Steam Closet
A product we stumbled upon at this year's National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, the LG Styler Steam Closet is set to revolutionize the way we care for our clothes. This new household appliance gives you the power to clean and refresh your clothes without any harsh chemicals—combining the power of steam cleaning with deodorizing—helping keep your clothes looking and smelling fresh. Say goodbye to the dry cleaners—the LG Styler steams, de-wrinkles, and sanitizes your clothing all-in-one. Learn more about the LG Styler Steam Closet here.
7. Organically-Inspired Décor
Offering a natural and relaxed look for your home, organically-inspired furniture and décor are a great way to bring the outdoors inside. Natural materials like wood and stone can add warmth and texture to a space, while plants can provide a pop of colour and life. This trend can help refresh your space and create a calming yet peaceful atmosphere.
8. Brown Tone Colour Schemes
Brown tones and brown colour schemes are going to be huge in 2023 as a great way to add warmth and depth to your spaces while also offering an inviting look that's perfect for any modern home. From wall paint to furniture to brilliant access pieces, look to add more brown tones to help complement your home and make it feel more cozy and welcoming.
9. Rich-Coloured Furniture
Rich colours always help make a bold statement and in 2023 this will apply to furniture. Rich-coloured furniture can help add a sense of luxury and sophistication to your space as well as give your home a bit of personality and drama. Look for rich colours like emerald green and navy blue to become popular furniture staples this year from velvet sofas to bold accent chairs that will help create focal points of interest in any living room, dining room, or bedroom.
