Put the Christmas decorations away and sweep up the New Years’ confetti – 2022 is now over. And with the new year finally here, there’s never been a better time to add more style, personality and comfort to the place most important to you – your home.
From bold and daring colour choices to sophisticated and elegant window treatments, 2023 is all about adding your own touch of individuality to your living space. And the best part? It can be as easy as adding a funky rug or some striking curtains and blinds in this year’s most on-trend colours.
With the help of our style consultants, we’ve put together the top home design trends for 2023. Read on to discover how to turn your home into a stylish sanctuary in 2023.
Why are home design trends important?
From fashion to tech, trends come and go in every industry. By keeping an eye on the latest home design trends, you can make creative, practical and smarter choices for your house interior.
For example, the traditional white kitchen may be seen as tired and outdated, while a striking blue or even black cooking space can be a breath of fresh air. Trends give us new ways of reinventing stale design choices and allow us to showcase our unique personality and flair.
The latest home trends are also the birthplace of timeless, luxury interior design. So, the question begs, which design trend will become a classic staple in every Australian home? All will be revealed in the years to come.
Following home design trends also give us new and innovative ways of using different tools and resources – like furniture, fabrics and textures. In 2017, layering rugs became a huge phenomenon and continues to grace homes worldwide. And wallpaper has been in and out of fashion since the 1980s. By keeping your finger on the pulse and staying on top of the latest home design trends, you can turn your house into the dream home you’ve always wanted.
2023 home design trends in Adelaide
No more grey or cool tones
If 2022 was all about cool neutral tones, then 2023 is about strong, dazzling colours.
Worn-out and overdone, grey and other flat colours can make a room appear too cold or uninteresting. In 2023, Adelaide homeowners are looking for ways to add fun pops of colour into their living spaces and highlight their unique sense of style.
So, how can you do this? Why not introduce more colour into your home with exciting highlight walls or interesting throws and cushions. Or better yet, update your curtains with a dramatic colour or vivid pattern.
At Bob Burns Blinds, we have a contemporary range of curtain fabrics and a wide selection of colours and patterns – perfect for any home or style. All our curtains are custom designed to suit your home and reflect your style. You can even speak to our home stylists to discuss how curtains can enhance the beauty and comfort of your home.
Listening rooms are on the rise
Is there anything better than curling up on a big comfy chair, putting on some headphones, and listening to your favourite album while the rest of the world melts away?
Thanks to the rising popularity of vinyl records, listening rooms are featuring more and more on people’s wish lists for their homes. A listening room, or music room, is a dedicated space for music – whether it’s playing your favourite tunes or creating your own music, alone or with others.
If you don’t have an entire room to spare, no problem! Even a cosy nook or private corner will do the trick. All you need is a few floating shelves to store your music and a statement chair to add some cool style.
Outdoor living is here to stay
If there’s one thing Australians love – it’s the outdoors. And with our stunning summers and spacious backyards, homeowners across the country have embraced outdoor living.
Outdoor living is when a home’s outdoor space is designed for multiple uses, whether it’s entertaining friends and family, enjoying a cup of coffee or spending quality time with the kids. A successful outdoor living design should have the feel of a traditional living room – with all the benefits of the outdoors.
So, are you ready to create that outdoor space you’ve always wanted? Then Zipscreen blinds are the way to go! Cleverly constructed with hidden interlocking parts, Zipscreens have self-aligning side channels for a stylish and sophisticated finish. And each blind is custom-made to give you the perfect fit from edge to edge, with no gaps – creating your very own ‘outdoor’ room to entertain in.
Zipscreens also come in a range of custom colours, various controls and enclosed box covers to complement your home.
Fun and funky powder rooms are making a comeback
Also known as a half bath or guest bath, a powder room is a small room with only two of the four main components a bathroom should have – a toilet and a sink.
Because they’re so small, powder rooms are the perfect space to experiment and show your personality. So play around with bold wallpaper and statement tapware. You can even turn your little nook into an art piece. Consider using unconventional colours, such as daring emerald green or hot pink, or opt for a busy, intriguing pattern.
Not brave enough to go all the way? Some unique art pieces will still give you the same sense of fun without going outside of your comfort zone.
