Here are the home remodeling trends you can expect to see more often in 2023:

Entertaining Spaces

First floors are being designed with guests and entertaining in mind. Open floorplans continue to be popular and make gathering spaces feel open and spacious, no matter the size of your home. Purposeful areas dedicated to entertainment have led to a revival in home bars and beverage centers. Fireplaces are getting special attention as they reclaim their role as the focal point for cozy gatherings that encourage friends and family to sit and linger a bit longer.

Personal Retreats

Bedrooms and spaces designed for more “me” time gives every member of the family an opportunity to escape to their own private corner of the house. Primary suites are getting the glam treatment and becoming luxurious spa retreats you can experience every day. Enjoy a deep soaker tub and heated bathroom floors without packing for a hotel stay. Even the youngsters are getting an upgrade with a bedroom for every member of the family and additional bathrooms of their own, or to share. A renewed focus on the kids’ rooms gives them a sense of ownership, and a break from mom and dad.

Creature Comforts

A focus on creature comforts makes home life easier with helpful gadgets and purposeful organization. Mixer lifts, pull-out shelves, and spice drawers are now a standard part of the kitchen. Bathroom features that promote well-being include grab bars for added safety and heated shower floors that take the chill out of Chicago winters. Throughout the house you’ll find small upgrades, from cozy fireplace spaces to well-stocked beverage centers, that let you enjoy life’s little pleasures, even when you’re not entertaining.

The workhorse rooms in the house are finally getting their due. Laundry rooms are receiving a fresh aesthetic and better organization to feel more like a welcome than a woe, making sorting and folding easier to tackle. Mudrooms, often reserved for family use only, have gone beyond the basic utility of hooks and shelving to become a style piece that makes you smile each time you step in from the garage.
