What Are the Top Design Trends in the New Year?

December 19, 2022

The last few years have certainly taught us that you never know what to expect. With every year that comes, there are many wonderful things to look forward to as well as things we can’t wait to leave behind. One thing we look forward to at McKee Builders is the upcoming design trends for the new year. When it comes to your new home with us, you can expect beautiful, energy-efficient features that improve your everyday life. You can also expect home designs that fit your style and inspire your new home for the new year. According to experts, a few design trends are here to stay and some new arrivals in 2023. Keep reading for some of the top design trends in the new year.

Add In Some Nature

It’s no surprise that people want to bring the calming effects of nature into their homes. Whether that’s the addition of indoor plants or including natural elements and materials. You can achieve this look by simply going outside, snipping branches, and adding them to earth-toned vessels. Consider pieces and decor with natural materials such as bamboo, pinewood, stones, and plants.

Pieces That Make A Statement

A good statement piece will always be on trend. In the new year, experts have a few different options for what items you should consider. Rugs create balance in a room, but can also be an eye-catching work of art that makes the space unique. You’ll also see lamp shades with traditionally-applied fabrics and patterns (even ceramic shades) becoming popular.

Thrift Store Finds

Designers expect to see a lot more unpredictable accessories this upcoming year. There’s a great want for homes with interesting and sentimental designs. You can find treasures at your local antique or thrift store. Better yet, bring out one-of-a-kind family heirlooms or vintage pieces to really make it feel like home.

Architectural Elements & Arches

Beyond decorations, changing the very construction of your home’s design can add a little extra something to a space. Arches will become a big trend that brings a classic timelessness and softness. You may even see some inspiring architectural changes to door frames, trim, and ceilings.

Go Gold

Black finishes will still remain a popular, bold choice, but as we see more people leaning towards warm versus cool tones, gold will be the way to go. Just a few accents of gold can add a touch of regality without looking gaudy.

Bold Patterns & Colors

Bold colors have been and will remain a trend in the new year. Along with it comes a new love of bold patterns. Stripes, florals, plaid, and even checkerboard are making a comeback in a big way. You can master the look with touches of bold patterns with a more tone-on-tone look versus the high-contrast look of the past.

Wellness Room

A flex room or any spare space can be turned into a wellness room, a very popular trend that could replace home gyms. These dedicated rooms provide much-needed relaxation and give you an area to escape. With many people still spending more time at home, it’s a great option for mindful practices like yoga and meditation.

McKee Builders considers all aspects of your home to make sure it fits you and your family. The design of your home should reflect your unique style, so we’re here to help with expert coordinators, unique selections, and unparalleled personalization services. Let’s make your dream home a reality. Ready to try out a few of these design trends in your new McKee Builders home?
