Experts predict to see more colors popping into interior and exterior designs in 2023. This could mean bold accent walls, vibrant landscape designs, bright accent furniture, and more. But, the colors we use throughout our homes strongly reflect our personalities and style. So it is important to design your space with neutral styles and colors that give you the option to bring in trends based on the annual styles.
One of the most rewarding parts about owning a home is making changes to truly make it feel like your own. Whether you’re remodeling your bathroom, installing a new fence, or updating your backyard, the contractor you choose to work with can make a big impact on your design, budget, and plans. This is why it’s important to make sure the professional you choose understands your vision while keeping you informed on the latest trends and design features available. If not, you could get stuck with dated materials that require a ton of maintenance or an investment that just doesn’t fit your home’s style.
If you’re planning a home renovation in 2023 here are some trends to consider:
Local real estate agents in the Lehigh Valley have recently reported that they’re seeing a new trend in home renovations post-pandemic. Many homeowners are converting their sheds and garages into home office spaces which increases the value of their homes while allowing them to spend more time with their families.
“Professionals such as physiotherapists, psychologists, artists, or music teachers can avoid wasting time commuting to offices and money leasing commercial space,” explains Trish Kane, Relator at Berkshire Hathaway. “It’s a win for everyone. But whether you are designing an outdoor conference room for teaching or a space that allows for individual work, the space needs to be comfortable and functional. A designer can help you visualize all your options so you can make the right decisions about your investment, ” explains Kane.
Your home’s value is highly dependent on its square footage, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and other interior features, but what’s outside counts, too–especially as more and more homeowners are working from home! But connecting a new space to your home could be a challenge without the right partner because most patio and deck contractors in Center Valley, Pennsylvania are looking to build something ‘unique’. The problem is, your new space will look out of place and could decrease the value of your home if it lacks architectural connection.
A great way to connect your new outdoor living room with the inside of your home is to extend the elements you already have inside to your backyard. This could mean naturally extending your existing floors to match your new deck, or selecting the same roof material to naturally connect your new covered deck to your existing home. This will make sure it looks like it’s been there the entire time. Forging a strong connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces can make your home feel more expansive and also fill your new space with natural light. This will naturally encourage a seamless flow between your indoor and outdoor living rooms.
From minimalist modern in-ground swimming pool designs to more traditional, elaborate custom swimming pool designs in Center Valley, Pennsylvania, the key to creating the right swimming pool design is to make sure it complements the surrounding area rather than competing with it. Too often homeowners settle for their existing pool because they do not receive the right information about the possibilities of a pool renovation. Or maybe they simply underestimate the transformative possibilities of renovating their existing pool.
From renovating an existing pool to including new custom-designed landscaping with soft accent lighting, a new outdoor kitchen, or a new outdoor living room with a custom fireplace, our designers can help you create a custom 3D design that will show you exactly how your new inground swimming pool and outdoor living space will look. This proven process helps you save time and money by allowing you to comfortably modify any features or finishes before your material is purchased so you can be confident that you are optimizing your budget before your build begins.
