2022 is finally in the rear-view mirror, with 2023 now stretched out before us. Now is a great time to look at what the future holds—which, for Gabriel Building Supply, means exploring building trends for the new year and beyond.
Whether you're constructing a custom home, prepping for some DIY, or remodeling your living space, it pays to know what to expect from another year of building. Here's our top list of 2023 building trends in Louisiana and beyond.
1. Open Outdoor Living
If you don't already have a patio space, now is the time to build one. Almost 60% of houses in the USA have at least one patio—a number projected to increase in 2023.
There are many additions available to the average homeowner. Many Louisiana locals are focusing on a functional kitchen, more comfortable furniture, or even outdoor fireplaces.
2. Upgraded Closets or Pantries
Luxury is becoming more and more affordable for the average American. As a result, luxurious upgrades are making their way to the more utilitarian parts of the home—including our closets and pantries!
Experts predict that storage areas for both clothing and food will become increasingly attractive and easy to navigate. For example, hardwood floors and built-in shelves may become the rule rather than the exception.
3. Big Glass Windows
Homeowners are opting for larger, cleaner, more dynamic window designs that bring the outside in. Skylights are having their own sort of renaissance, as well as sliding glass doors and bay windows.
If you want to cash in on the trend, consider some ways to get more natural light inside your house. Awning windows may be best for our wet Louisiana climate, although you can also opt for a garden window in the kitchen or dining room.
4. Bold Black Accents
An increasing number of US homes are focused on high-contrast paints, appliances, and accessories. Experts are predicting more:
- Black kitchen appliances
- Black-trimmed windows and doors
- Black wall accents, floors, & cabinets
