Home design trends to look out for this Spring

Articlesdesign Inspiration

As the days grow longer and the air warms, it's the perfect time to catch up on the latest spring home design trends. Whether you're planning to buy a new home, do a full-scale renovation or simply make a few touch ups, this season offers plenty of inspiration.

Here's a glimpse into what's happening in building trends this spring.

Nature-Inspired Colour Palettes

Spring is all about embracing the beauty of nature, and as green design grows, interiors are switching colours that feel too artificial for gentler hues that are easier on the eye.

Think soft pastels and earthy tones, and expect to see shades of green everywhere mimicking the blossoming flora and fresh foliage. Incorporate these colours into your interiors through wall paint, upholstery, or decor accessories for an instant springtime vibe.

Sustainability Reigns

Eco-conscious design has been a driving force for builders and homeowners, partly due to updates to Australia’s National Construction Code in 2022, which mandated all new homes have a minimum seven-star energy rating.

The trend continues to gain momentum this spring, with more homes utilising passive design principles and eco-friendly materials. Inclusions such as smart appliances, solar panels and batteries, EV chargers, and water-saving devices are becoming more commonplace.  

Homeowners are increasingly opting for sustainable materials like tile and bamboo flooring, reclaimed wood, recycled glass, and civilization's oldest sustainable building materials – brick. These choices not only reduce environmental impact but also bring a touch of natural texture and spring warmth to your home.

Open and Airy Indoor-Outdoor Integration

One eco-term that’s been gaining street cred in 2023 is Biophilic design. It’s all about using natural resources to create harmony between architecture and the natural world, or put simply, bringing the outside in.

With the arrival of spring, the desire for open and airy living spaces grows stronger. Homeowners are seeking ways to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Bi-fold or sliding glass doors that lead to an alfresco, indoor courtyards, internal windows, and outdoor showers are set to dominate. Complement these transitions with outdoor furniture, potted plants, and cosy outdoor lighting to create a seamless flow. 

Open floorplans, skylights, clerestory windows and strategically placed mirrors can also help maximize natural light, making your home feel brighter and more inviting.

Sustainable Landscaping

It's not just the interior of your home that should be eco-friendly. As indoor/outdoor living gains traction, boundaries between the two blur even more. Indoor plant popularity is blooming, think wilder and larger-scale indoor plants, as well as rockeries or gardens incorporated into your home structure.

Sustainable landscaping is also gaining traction. Rain gardens planted in a depression on a natural slope can temporarily hold and soak in rainwater runoff from roofs, driveways, or lawns. Planted out with native shrubs, perennials, and flowers, they can enhance the beauty of your outdoor space while conserving water and promoting biodiversity.

Multi-Purpose Rooms: Your Versatile Retreat

As we move on from COVID, many are returning to offices, at least for a few days each week. This leaves the room formerly known as the ‘home office’ open to new possibilities.

Multi-purpose rooms are taking off. Bespoke interiors can cater to multiple aspects of daily life – the secret is to creatively integrate workspaces without necessarily creating a dedicated space. The desire for luxurious family multimedia and game rooms, home gyms, music rooms filled with vinyl and comfy chairs, and even saunas are increasing.

Smart Home Technology

The integration of smart home technology continues to be a hot trend this season. From voice-activated assistants to energy-efficient appliances, these tech-savvy solutions can add convenience, security, and energy savings to your home.

Incorporating these spring home trends can breathe new life into your living space, making it more comfortable, more liveable, and more energy efficient. Whether you're planning to buy a beautiful brand-new home, a major renovation, or just looking to update your decor, these trends offer something for everyone. So, embrace the spirit of spring and let your creativity bloom in every corner of your home!
