6 Home Construction Trends For 2023

Looking for some new home construction trends for the upcoming year? There are countless options to choose from, but knowing which is right for your living space can take time and effort.

This is especially so if this is your first time considering adding certain elements to your home. Here are some unique 2023 trends to try implementing.

You can use almost any type of hardwood you’d like. Some of the most popular options include:

  • Oak
  • Cherry
  • Walnut
  • Maple
  • Birch

Each has its own look so that you can create a stunning floor in your home. They can also be stained to help bring out more of the hues and grains.

Since each plank is unique, your patterned hardwood floor will be distinctive from others.

Building a Pole Barn Home

In 2023, you’ll find that many new structures follow a pole barn design. This combines living space with a storage room, creating a cozy but practical area to reside in.

But perhaps one of the best things about pole barn homes is that they’re affordable to build compared to traditional homes. Better yet, they’re much quicker to build.

Wood or steel frames are raised, and the house is then secured to a foundation before walls and other elements. Because they’re well-built, you’ll also find that pole barn homes are incredibly energy-efficient.

If this sounds interesting to you, reach out to a pole barn builder. Many will be happy to answer your questions, investigate the area you wish to build one on, and provide you with a quote.

You might also receive layout options so you can choose one that fits your design preferences.

Relying on Sustainable Materials

A growing home trend is incorporating sustainable home goods and materials. These contribute to less waste than other options (like plastic) and don’t have as negative an impact on the environment.

Sometimes insurance agencies will even cut back on home insurance costs if you use green building options.

Numerous materials can be used for this purpose. Some are:

  • Bamboo
  • Cork
  • Stone
  • Cordwood

Not only are these options stylish, but they require little maintenance. In addition, they’re quite durable, withstand heavy weather elements, and are also energy-efficient, which can help save you money on your electric and heating bills.

What might be most surprising is that many of these materials can be even stronger than steel. For instance, bamboo has incredible strength and can easily handle heavy compression.

Thanks to these benefits, you’ll find that many homes will start including a lot of these materials.

Installing Solar Panels

Incorporating solar panels might be something to consider. Solar energy is a great way to make your home energy-efficient which can help reduce your carbon footprint while also saving you money.

While most people envision roof panels, there are other options, too, like in your backyard. They can be put almost anywhere as long as there’s plenty of sun in the area.

Adding Arches

One architectural detail that’s gaining traction is arches. These curves add flair to your home and give the illusion that a space is larger than it actually is.

You can add arches practically anywhere in your home. An excellent way to show them off is inside as doorways. Besides indoor arches to rooms, add some outside, like around a pop-out window.

Doing so breaks up typical straight lines and can make your home have more curb appeal.

There are a few different arch types that you can choose from. Some to look into are:

  • Flat
  • Horseshoe
  • Semi-circular
  • Pointed
  • Relieving

Apart from the design, you can also add unique elements around the archway, like bricks or paneling. This can help make the curvature stand out and can serve as a great focal point.

Incorporating Bold Accents

Painting striking colors around your home is yet another trend to take notice of. This includes around entryways and doors. A solid hue creates a dazzling focal point that many won’t be able to forget.

Remember that you want to use boldness wisely. If you add too many colors or too many items in a certain hue, it will destroy the effect you’re trying to go for.

If you’re not sure what colors to use, some popular ones are:

  • Bright red
  • Black
  • Navy
  • Yellow
  • Aqua

If you don’t want to paint the room, you can instead add these colors through pillows, rugs, or artwork which can be just as noticeable.

As 2023 approaches, consider implementing these trends into your home. They might be trendy, but they’ll withstand the test of time, so your living space is always stylish.
