The year 2023 is off to a great start—with spring on its way here, people in Memphis and the greater Mid-South area of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana are able to enjoy time outdoors with friends and family. It’s a great time to also set preparations to enjoy the end of the global COVID-19 pandemic, with emergency precautions set to end on May 11. After a few years of the local and global pandemic shaping lives, most will now be able to fully return to normal life—though for many, this might also involve bringing things they’ve learned along the way, like the importance of spaces for work in the home, maximalist style, and the importance of friends and family.

The past few years of the pandemic drastically shaped design around the world, shifting what people were looking for in their home décor and what designers were creating on their sketch pads. Throughout history, global events have shaped design not only during the event, but afterwards, too. Think about the roaring twenties after World War I, or the styles of the Baby Boom era after World War II. 2023 is bringing in some trends that will shape the post-pandemic home and fashion world.

So what bathroom and kitchen trends for 2023 can you expect to see? Here, we’ll break down what’s going on in the world of design, and let you know how The Tub Pros will make your home look and function at its best.

2023 Trends in General

Many trends that came in with the pandemic are going to stick around into 2023, particularly the ones that shaped how people live and think about their lives. For example, 2020 made many people reevaluate their priorities, and many people found that health, nature, relaxation, and a cozy retreat from the world were the most important things in their homes.

Newer houses and renovations, and the trends from the past few years, have emphasized light and access to nature. That natural emphasis has come into the home, too, with large windows, plants, and earth tones all trending and continuing to trend. For some, that concept of nature has spilled over into an emphasis on low impact sustainability and long-lasting materials, trends which are expected to continue into 2023.

At the same time, people also realized the importance of having a place of safety and coziness, away from the rest of the world—something that’s also continuing to shape how people use and approach the needs of their home. Touches of luxury, like spa-style bathrooms, help to make that a reality for some—but it’s not all about big elements. Everything from arrangements of furniture to selection of accessories can be part of curating a sense of ease and relaxation.  

And people want homey, cozy spaces to reflect their personalities—hence the rise of maximalism, and style intended to reflect personal tastes, interests, and aesthetics. Bright colors, thoughtfully chosen accessories, and bold wallpapers and fabrics are all continuing to be part of the world of design in 2023.  

2023 Kitchen Trends

Colorful kitchens are expected to be in during 2023—not just walls, but painted cabinets as well. Nature-inspired colors—not just greens and browns, but pinks and other shades—are all making their way into kitchen designs. Energy-efficient appliances are also continuing to increase in popularity, as are new smart appliances that integrate with phone, TV, and IPads, to help take some of the stress out of shopping, cooking, and preparing meals.

Practicality is also a must—for new builds that could mean a separate prep area, while for smaller spaces, it might mean a double-bowl sink or specialized storage for your appliances, all dedicated to making the heart of the home function with its best efficiency.

Islands are also being reevaluated for peak efficiency—some are increasing in size to allow breakfast-bar seating, and some home designers are even opting for two islands. They might not be the same material as the other countertops, too—mixed materials are becoming increasingly popular, both for added texture and for added ease of maintenance.

Texture is in—so solid white spaces and super-matching design choices are out. Mixing metals, materials, and hardware is coming into fashion, and color is displacing minimalist styles from previous years.

2023 Bathroom Trends

Natural colors are also popular in the bathroom, along with natural stones and materials—as long as they are easy to take care of. Ease of maintenance is one of the big factors in creating spa-like, comfortable bathrooms, which may also include seats or low thresholds for easy accessibility that make the spaces more accessible, safe, and comfortable for everyone in the home for a long time to come.

It’s not minimalist bathrooms making a return – bold tile and wallpaper are continuing to be popular, and with bathrooms getting larger, these details are even more important.  And texture—coming from statement lights, curved mirrors, or mixed materials, like wood, tile, and stone—are all increasingly popular to make spaces feel natural and luxurious. And this isn’t just confined to the master bathroom, either—kids bathrooms are becoming increasingly fun, designed spaces that can last a long time.

Like with kitchens, minimalism and all-white spaces are out in 2023. But super busy spaces, chevron patterns, and oversized styles are also on their way out – it’s all about balance.
