It’s hard to believe 2023 is almost upon us. Often, the new year brings with it inspiration to update your home. The winter months after the holidays are long, after all, so why not use the time to breathe new life into your favorite spaces?
Interior Design Trends
One of the biggest 2023 interior design trends the experts are seeing is the time and attention paid to service-driven spaces. This can include laundry/mudrooms, kitchens, home offices, and any other room that you service the home (and the people in it). Some of these rooms can be overlooked when it comes to design, and the expert designers believe this is going to change.
So, for this extend all the areas of the house which includes mudrooms, laundry room, and more in 2023. These spaces should be well-designed, thoughtful, and beautiful.
The first trend is a return to well-tailored interiors, “with elegant shapes and carefully thought-out proportions. Functionality is coming back and sculptural furniture, like curved armless sofas, is on its way out. While they are sculptural and look beautiful, they are not practical because they are very hard to get in and out of, and a sofa is meant to sit in, after all.”
Return To Tailored, Angular, And Cubic Proportions
The second trend is a return to tailored, angular, and cubic proportions, especially in chairs. “A well-proportioned chair with a right back pitch makes all the difference. I do love a chair you can spend hours reading in,, and “curved, armless chairs are losing their popularity.” This could be incorporated into a home office space or in a kitchen where you can relax before cooking
Focus On Lighting
The third trend for these spaces is focused on lighting. Ambient and comfortable lighting is in. An interior designer said We should see more indirect lighting coming from coves and eye-level fixtures, with wall sconces doubling down on form and function. More so, sconces are becoming sculptural as a statement piece or artwork.” She also believes we are seeing an end to recessed lighting. “I know this one is hard to lose, but in truth, it is only needed in the kitchen where good light is essential for cooking,” she explained. Sconces in a home office or mudroom deliver on functionality but offer much more design than traditional recessed lighting.
Service-driven spaces are rooms of the home we spend the most time. Whether we’re cooking, prepping, doing laundry, or working, it’s time to pay attention to how those spaces are designed and how they work with the rest of the home. By concentrating on seating, lighting, and functionality of items in each space, you can make the most of the room and enjoy the experience while you’re there.
