Here’s what’s set to take over your Pinterest and Instagram pages when it comes to design in 2023. Follow us on Instagram for daily design inspiration!

Chance of Showers
Pinterest predicts 2023 is the year of the shower. Searches for “amazing shower walk in” are up 395 percent, and “home spa bathroom” searches are up 190 percent. Pinterest believes the era of the soaking tub may be coming to an end, in favor instead of pampering rinses. What does it mean for homeowners? Look into curbless showers when renovating or building. Choose wood look or neutral tone tiles for a spa-like feel. And be sure to include plenty of built-in shower storage for your best scrubs, soaps and shower bombs.

Stay Marbelous
Marble looks have been a trend for years (decades?! centuries?!) and the timeless look isn’t going anywhere. Designers are leaning into more dramatic marble looks with deep veining and sharper contrast. Don’t be afraid to explore options outside of Carrara. And as always, porcelain alternatives to stone will be easier to maintain and care for.

Bring on the Drama
Designers across the board seem to be favoring more dramatic looks, especially in bathrooms and powder rooms. Bold accent tiles for entire walls, brightly colored vanities, or unique light fixtures can definitely help bring the drama. Why play it safe when you can make a statement instead?

Ask Jeeves
When it comes to kitchens, more and more designs seem to be incorporating not just pantry cabinets, but an entire pantry room. Butler’s pantries offer a lot of perks – more room for storage, a private area for food preparation when entertaining, and an additional area to exercise your design muscle. Stick with white cabinets and subway tiles in your main kitchen, but bring on the color and texture in your working pantry.

Bye Bye, Flat Stanley
One dimensional tiles are so yesterday, at least according to Homes & Gardens. Instead, textured tiles will be all the rage in 2023. Luckily there are lots of options when it comes to tiles with irregular surfaces and multiple dimensions, especially on walls. Textured tiles can be incorporated into kitchen and bathrooms designs, and beyond.
