With prices rising everywhere you look, many homeowners will be focused more on maintenance home projects versus purely aesthetic remodels this year. However, modernizing and updating the home should still be on your yearly list of things to do. We’ve gathered five types of home improvement projects that are sure to be popular in 2023.

1. Exterior home revamps

Whether opting for new siding only or a completely new look, the exterior will be equally important as indoor remodeling this year. Moody greens, blues, and browns will make their way onto more home exteriors in 2023.

Also, expect more homes to feature the vertical siding trend, also referred to as board n’ batten. This trend doesn’t have to be installed on an entire house; vertical siding can be added as an accent to highlight architectural features, including entryways, gables, dormers, and build-outs. 

Board n’ batten will continue to gain even more traction because it looks great paired with horizontal siding, shake siding, or manufactured stone. This style of siding is the perfect mixture of rustic charm and modern engineering.

2. New windows, better views, and bringing the outdoors in

There’s nothing quite like a home with beautiful natural light and clear, unobstructed views of the outdoors. Regarding window design trends for 2023 – bigger is best, and black is back. Larger windows and even window walls will be commonplace in the coming years.

Home designs will incorporate more large-scale windows and replace single doors with double doors to see more of the exterior from within the home.

Black-framed windows and doors have made a huge statement on the home market in 2022 and will continue to thrive in 2023. The modern vibe might only work for some exteriors, but if you plan on updating siding and trim as well, this trend may be for you. We recommend The Marvin Signature® Ultimate windows because this collection provides some of the largest window sizes in the industry.

3. Expanded outdoor oasis 

More homeowners are viewing the outdoors as an extension of their homes – a trend that’s here to stay. 

Creating a safe outdoor space that reflects your lifestyle is not just for larger homes and lots but also for smaller lots that need more privacy. Shade structures, such as pergolas, offer protection from the heat and make the space more liveable. Privacy fencing will also become more popular in the coming years as people build upon this trend of outdoor living.

Gray composite decking is one of the latest trends for outdoor spaces. While shades of gray remain dominant, you’ll see warmer tones creeping up alongside greens this year to add more dimension. And textured pavers, like those that mimic natural stone, are also rising as homeowners become more adventurous with color and texture. 

If you want the feel of a family room outdoors, this should be one focus of your 2023 home improvement plan.

4. Affordable and functional kitchen upgrades

This year, smart investments in your kitchen and bathrooms can significantly increase home value and overall satisfaction. Replacing hardware, lighting, and countertops could be what’s needed to bring your home into 2023. 


Flexible lighting options are a big kitchen and home trend that will stick around. App and voice-controlled lighting will be as popular as traditional dimmers and motion-sensing lighting in the coming year. Adjustable sconces are also making a significant impact in kitchens. 


Non-toxic surfaces are imperative to a healthy kitchen environment. Solid natural stone, marble, wood, metals, and porcelain are countertop options to look for in 2023. Installing porcelain countertops has been popular in Europe for some time and is finally trending here in America. Porcelain has similar advantages when compared to other popular materials like quartz and granite. A deeply veined countertop could be just what your space needs in 2023.

Many countertop surfaces pair well with the top kitchen hardware trends of 2023. The design world favors neutral, calming designs with a pop of interest here and there. For all fixtures, black and gold finishes are gaining the most popularity, but white fixtures are beginning to gain some traction. Mixing metal colors in the kitchen is a major trend we’re happy to see stay around for some time. With stainless steel appliances pairing together nicely with golden faucets and cabinet pulls.

Two-toned kitchen cabinets are becoming increasingly popular. When sporting a dual-colored look this year, we recommend a darker color on the base and lighter upper cabinets. Applying this style often makes a kitchen appear larger. Homes with small kitchens should steer clear of dark cabinetry all over as it tends to make the space claustrophobic. If you’re looking to make a big change in the kitchen on a strict budget, then painting your cabinets could be the best option. Use new hardware, lighting, and countertops to accentuate the new color scheme.

Colors like black, olive green, and warm spiced vanilla are part of this year’s most popular trend in creating natural and uncomplicated spaces. They’re sure to give any kitchen a refreshing yet warming glow. Not only will a modern interior be more enjoyable during its daily use, but it can also increase your property’s resale value.

5. Mudrooms are back and more organized than ever before

Keeping your home clean and organized is a must-have for peace of mind and a sense of tranquility in the homestead. To increase storage, the mudrooms of 2023 feature wall-spanning cabinetry with designated areas for shoes, coats, umbrellas, and more. In addition, these rooms include sinks for washing up or double as the laundry room space.

Homeowners see the need to create a sort of “command center” or “drop zone” in the home. It is an excellent spot to place all of the items coming in and out of the house and still make it look organized. Cabinetry plays a crucial role in the function, organization, and aesthetics of a”drop zone.” 

Refreshing neutrals keep the space grounded, calm, and modern. This space should be addressed as homeowners spend quite a bit of time here, and it’s often the first area seen when entering the home.

Is it time to change your front door?

When is the best time to replace your exterior doors? 

If your home’s exterior doors are broken or in dire need of repair, then ideally, you should replace them as soon as possible. The last thing you want is to compromise the safety of your home. 

However, if they don’t require immediate replacement, then when is the best time? Actually, we feel like winter is the most popular season to replace the exterior doors in your home.

Top 10 Kitchen Trends of 2018

About this time last year, I was researching forecasts on what trends would look like for 2018. As you know it’s always exciting to see what’s coming in the new year, but the funny thing is, there’s not really a hard stop and start between the trends on a calendar basis. Instead, what we see is a flow that carries through, with slight nuances that change the landscape year over year. So before we get into what 2019 will bring, let’s take a look back at what’s been at the top of trends in 2018.

Natural Stones for a Minimalist Approach

In the past decade, minimalism in interior design has noticed a surge in popularity.

The reasons for this are simple (and understandable): with the chaos that people face in everyday life a home should be a place for rest.

And, let’s be honest, minimalism is as relaxing as it gets.

Deriving from Scandinavian design, the minimalist approach is all about using the bare minimum of furniture and decor and an inventive use of textures and shapes. Combined with a lot of light, the empty, clean space that minimalist furniture provides, gives a feeling of ease and comfort.

If you are one of the minimalism lovers (and I bet that you are, since you’re reading this) – keep on reading as I’ll share a couple of tips on how you can use natural stones to easily achieve a minimalist look in your home.

How Kitchen Remodeling Impacts Your Home’s Value

Before starting a remodeling project, every homeowner has a crucial calculation to make: will the project’s costs be made up for by the increased value of their home? After all, putting thousands into a renovation that will have little-to-no impact when you list your home isn’t always the best idea.

One area where homeowners can get the most bang-for-their-buck is the kitchen. That is because future buyers see the kitchen as central to homeownership. A small, outdated kitchen could be a deal breaker for some buyers, leaving you on the outside looking in of an otherwise hot market.

Whether you’re looking to boost your home’s future value, or just create a space you can enjoy in the present, a kitchen remodel is a good idea.

How to Increase Your Home’s Value

You’re excited about getting started on increasing your home’s value, and we get it! There are renovations to think about, DIY projects and color schemes to pick out, landscaping decisions to consider, and much more. This is not even mentioning the ever-practical concerns of improving your home’s safety and energy efficiency requirements.

Generally, if you’ve maintained your home to a reasonable standard, there’s nowhere to go but up. And for those ready to start redesigning their living space, renovations can be a combination of elements that enhance your current lifestyle while remaining practical for a resale later. And that’s just the long-run view.
