One of the most rewarding parts about owning a home is making changes to truly make it feel like your own. Whether you’re remodeling your bathroom, installing a fence, or updating your plumbing or HVAC systems, a renovation can make a big impact on how we live at home, and trends in home renovation can influence home design for years to come.
Moving into 2023, there are a few things that experts agreed will influence renovation trends. For example, the pandemic changed the way that people work and spend time at home and we can expect to see those changes reflected in the renovations homeowners prioritize in the New Year. Coupled with a rise in material costs and a sky-high housing market, experts predict that renovations focused on increasing comfort and functionality in the home will be big. Mallory Micetich, home expert at Angi, says that “optional projects” won’t be a priority for homeowners in 2023. “With inflation still on the rise, most people won’t be rushing to take on fully optional projects. Homeowners are more likely to focus on non-discretionary projects, like fixing a broken fence or repairing a burst pipe,” Micetich says. If optional projects are taken on, she expects to see them completed alongside a related repair or necessary upgrade, like pairing a tiling project with a pipe repair in the bathroom.
So given these complicated factors, what can we expect to see when it comes to home renovation trends in the new year? Here are 5 home renovation trends that experts predict will be big in 2023.
