Making a new home uniquely yours is one of the exciting things about buying or building a house. One way to gather some of the best interior design ideas is to draw inspiration from the most popular interior design trends of 2023 — and from what we can see, it's clear that 60s and 70s vintage is taking the design world by storm with a modern twist.
Let's take a look at four of the top interior design trends leading the way this year.
Heavy barn doors were all the rage over the past decade, but lighter, space-saving alternatives will soon replace them. Today, we are seeing a shift toward pocket doors that move out of sight when opened and classic glass-paned French doors adding height and light to the space.
Bringing the great outdoors into the home is something we're seeing more of. For instance, the kitchen cabinet trend is moving from grey to green, whether it's light or dark green cabinets, either painted or stained. Stone or imitation stone countertops and finishes are popular again, too. Another 2023 nature-inspired interior design idea is incorporating wallpaper featuring elements from nature, such as birds and floral motifs, with a vintage look.
Remember the checkerboard style made famous in the 50s and 60s? Classic black and white checkerboard floor and wall tiles are back, adding a touch of sophistication and playfulness to a room. These patterns are great for breaking up neutral tones, and they work best in spaces with minimal furniture, such as a foyer or bathroom.
Rustic finishes are en vogue in 2023, especially when it comes to walls. We've seen an uptake in handmade tiles in the kitchen, which you should use in moderation as an enlarged accent backsplash or similar application. Plastered walls are also making a comeback, adding some texture and variation to what would otherwise be a smooth surface. Our interior design tip to take advantage of this trend is to apply a thin layer of plaster to your existing sheer drywall before painting it.
