Interior design trends 2023 for your homes

We bring you the interior design trends that will be hot in 2023 and how you can include them in your home.

2022 returned hope back to most of our lives. We finally moved back to our normal routines — be it school, office, travel, meeting friends and loved ones — without any hesitation, and the list goes on. And the best part is, we learnt that whatever happens, life moves on, and with little patience, willpower and positivity, all of us can defeat any odds. As this year ends and a new year beckons, let’s take a look at the interior design trends that are set to rule in 2023.

Jessica Fernandis, our studio head and expert designer at DesignCafe in Bangalore, believes that trends will come and go but the best home interior design will always be the one that reflects the people who live in the home. 

The pandemic made us love our homes even more than before, and come what may, this love for our homes is here to stay. So, without further ado, let’s look at some of the latest home design trends that will turn your home into a dream haven in 2023.

Sustainability Will Continue Trending In 2023’s Interior Design Styles

Sustainability will remain an important aspect of home interiors in 2023. Rattan furniture, cork wallpapers, upcycled materials, and DIY home decor will continue to brighten up your space and be the centre of attraction in your home interior design. With environmental conditions deteriorating, it’s no surprise that sustainability persists in the latest home interior design trends.

Modern Interior Design Trends Will Include Traditional Touches

2023 will also see an amalgamation of modern and traditional home interior design trends, especially in Indian homes. The use of curved furniture, arches and traditional lighting fixtures can add a different dimension to your modern home interiors. You can also add a traditional statement piece of furniture from your grandparents’ home or a traditional swing. This will bring the old-world charm to your home without needing you to give up on the trending interior design styles of 2023.

Modern Contemporary Will Definitely Be A Top Interior Design Trend

According to our expert designer Jessica, modern contemporary is one of the home interior design trends that will gain popularity in 2023. People are more likely to move towards clean lines and simple yet elegant designs. Modern contemporary home interiors are a perfect fusion of functional furniture, clean lines, minimal yet aesthetic decor and muted colour schemes. You can also experiment with bold colours but be mindful to compensate with ample natural light and decorative light fixtures to accentuate the interiors. You can also opt for wood work to bring a sense of warmth to your home.

Semi-Open Spaces Are The Latest Trends In Home Interior Design

In 2023, semi-open spaces will be the new trend in home interiors. Open layouts have been a trending home interior design, especially in compact apartments, in recent times. In 2023, semi-open spaces with subtle partitions to segregate different spaces will be in trend, according to Tasneem Ariswala, our studio manager and expert designer from Thane. She believes subtle demarcation with see-through glass partitions, jali partitions and sheer curtains will be a big part of home interior trends of 2023.

At-Home Wellness Areas Will Be A New Home Design Trend

Over the last few years, there has been exponential growth in mental health awareness. Now, people are more concerned about not just their physical but mental health too. Thoughtful home interiors with wellness areas, like meditation nooks, indoor gardens or small water bodies, will be an important part of home interior designs in 2023. If you have a backyard or balcony, make use of it to create your personal rejuvenation or meditation area. In case you have a small apartment, choose small decor elements like moss frames, potted indoor plants, hanging planters or small green patches in your living room to bring in a positive vibe.

Laundry And Foyer Areas Will Play An Essential Role In Home Interiors

Gone are the days when home interiors were just about the visual aesthetics of the main areas like the living room, bedroom and kitchen. Now, home interiors also include utility areas like the laundry space and foyer area. This makes your home clutter-free and easy to clean. You can add a laundry area on your balcony or in your bathroom. The foyer plays a vital part in elevating the entryway of your home. A foyer unit with some elegant decor pieces and stylish light fixtures is an excellent addition to make your home interiors look warm and welcoming. Add a Buddha statue and some indoor plants for a positive aura.

All-White Kitchen With Smart Storage Will Be A Top Interior Design Trend 

When talking of kitchen interiors, an all-white kitchen with smart storage mechanisms will be one of the most trending designs of 2023. The open layout may be replaced by subtle partitions. You can add a jali partition or a breakfast counter to create a demarcation between the kitchen and other parts of the house. Opt for some high-quality finishes like acrylic or lacquered glass for your kitchen. They are easy to clean and maintain. Some smart mechanisms like skirting drawers, pull-out units, and magic corners are a must to house utensils and panty essentials neatly and enjoy free-flow movement.
