With the new year right around the corner, the Gentek design experts anticipate the top three home trends that will gain traction in 2023. Consider how these ideas can be incorporated into your renovation or remodel:
1. Sustainable Design
Each year we see increased focus on choosing sustainable building materials and eco-friendly products. In 2023, this is no exception. Canadians will continue to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and remain conscious of their impact on the environment in future home improvement projects.
Notably, the Canada Greener Homes Grant remains in effect in 2023. You can be reimbursed up to $5,600 when you make eligible energy-efficient home upgrades such as installing ENERGY STAR® replacement windows and doors.
2. Smart Home Technology
Technology continues to play a major role in our lives. In 2023, we expect to see more homes equipped with innovative technology to make our lives easier. You can turn your house into a smart home with a smart thermostat, smart lighting and security. We expect households to streamline smart appliances and systems with centralized smart home platforms.
3. More Natural Light
In 2023, the bigger the windows and doors, the better. Combine window styles, like picture windows and fixed lites, to add more natural light. A larger glass surface area will let in more natural light, allow a broader view of the outdoors and enhance your wellbeing. Consider replacing your windows in the new year for superior energy efficiency and savings.
