2023 Design Trends for Active Adult Homes

  • December 1, 2022

For those who will be following home trends in 2023, it is expected that trends won’t shift all that much from the last year, but those researching 2023 design trends should know that some new ones are on the rise, many of which are tailored to the needs of active adults who are living life to the fullest. Whether you’re downsizing and looking for a simpler lifestyle or moving to be closer to family, active adults are buying new homes and driving some of the most exciting interior design trends 2023. Let’s look at a few of the most interesting ones for the coming year!

1. Flexible spaces are more important than ever. As we all learned over the last few years when many of us were spending more time in our homes than ever before, having rooms that offer flexible uses can make your home more versatile and more comfortable. Plus, as more people continue to work from home, living rooms, personal gyms, and flexible office spaces are all in high demand. Homeowners also want spaces for personal hobbies or areas where kids can do their homework or visiting grandkids can play. Designing livable spaces that can accommodate multiple needs is a huge driver for many of the latest home design trends.

2. Extra storage is a must! All of us accumulate stuff as we live in our homes over the years, and the 55+ active adult home shopper has gathered a lifetime of belongings that all need their own space. However, no one wants to live in a cluttered or crowded home, so clever storage solutions are in high demand, from walk-in closets to well-designed kitchen pantries. It’s also popular to create storage solutions in out-of-the-way places by utilizing pull-out shelving, lazy Susans, and other adaptations.

3. Earth tones are in! Early reports on 2023 design trends often include warm, inviting earth tones that can help make spaces feel cozy and welcoming. These include colors that we often associate with fall, maybe the warmest and coziest of seasons, such as browns and tans, of course, but also oranges, greens, yellows, and even accents of purple or blue. In fact, sage green was one of the top colors in 2022, and we saw a wave of green front doors on homes. Maybe you’ve seen a few yourself! While these tones are flexible and adaptable, it’s also important to note that they’re not actually neutrals. They have just enough pop to make all the difference!

4. Natural materials are a, well, natural extension of our affection for earth tones. Wood, stone, and leather are all in, helping to add timelessness to different rooms throughout the house. They bring with them durability and solidness that helps make a house feel like a home. Natural materials are also environmentally friendly and tend to last a long time with proper care, making them sustainable and helping you to feel good about the things around you.

5. Easy upkeep is where it’s at! Certainly, active adults enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle but really, who amongst us wouldn’t prefer a home that’s easy to keep clean, tidy, and in good repair? From larger tiles that minimize grout to open floor plans that make sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming easier, the luxury home trends of 2023 will emphasize easy upkeep and low maintenance without sacrificing beauty, style, or functionality.
