Architectural trends to look out for in 2022
With 2023 just around the corner, architects and prospective homeowners are eager to know what architectural design trends to expect in the coming year. Of course, new architectural trends have emerged, and it’s only right to build a home that meets up to modern standards.
So, what architectural design trends can we expect in 2023?
- Home offices will become an essential design trend in 2023
There was a time home offices were a nice, functional addition to your interior. Ever since the pandemic hit in 2020, home offices have so become a must-have that architects and landlords would be looking to design their homes with a home office in mind in 2023 and beyond.
This design trend will vary by client, as some will prefer a small formal space fit for zoom meetings, while others need a larger and more functional home office.
- Flexible and open floor plans will remain a trend
Open floor plans have been an architectural trend over the last couple of years, and we expect them to continue into 2023. This involves having primary suites, guest suites, studies, and large scullery pantries on the main floor. Accent walls, wine bars, and stylish outdoor living spaces will also continue to trend hard into the new year.
- Design trends will move from urban to rural regions
Just as advanced tech devices first hit the big cities before moving to smaller towns, there will be a transfer of design trends in 2023. People are relocating from larger cities to smaller regions, bringing new design inspirations with them. So it’s not surprising to find the same kind of homes in New York and California.
- Less formality and more natural family spaces
Landlords are now ditching formal dining spaces and opting for homes that are designed after their day-to-day lifestyle. For families that do not prioritize taking meals to a dining table to eat, open kitchen and family room plans are the trend. The ease, simplicity, and casual setting pretty much fit into how most families live these days, so dining areas will usually go unused for months. That’s a waste of space many homeowners will not like.
Architects are already seeing more requests for contemporary and modern designs from clients, and as you can rightly guess, these trends are usually woven within their demands.
