8 bedroom design trends that will go out of style in 2023

If you spend at least eight hours a day in a room, it should be a haven. However, when it comes to good designs and trends, many people often overlook the bedroom. This may be because this room is not exactly a space for entertaining guests and is often closed off from the rest of the house. However, the bedroom is one of the easiest rooms to liven up.

2022 was a unique year for bedroom trends, as supply chain issues were a lot less challenging. So homeowners can finally complete renovation projects, make master suites, swap floors, or even install wallpaper. It also means that tenants can do those essential updates.

However, after several years of the same look, 2023 will likely be a year of changes in this category, perhaps more than any other room in the house. Here are the bedroom design trends that will disappear in 2023, plus what will replace those styles, according to interior designers and experts.

Colors and neutrals

Gone are the days of all-white bedrooms with pastel colors. Interior designer Philip Thomas Vandervoorde of Studio Thomas James told me, “Neutrality is very much felt in the spa. You can find your very own Zen moment in a space full of rich, saturated colors that tell your personal story. We love the tension of using different types of fabrics.”

So what would be on trend instead? According to interior designer and HomeGoods Style Expert Beth Diana Smith, hues will be more saturated including reds, pinks and purples. “Why red and pink? These shades were more popular as more feminine vibes started to play with trends like Barbiecore and Pastel Christmas.”

These colors can easily overwhelm a space. Therefore, she suggests incorporating pops of color rather than trying to transform the entire room. “I recommend décor pieces like bold print throw pillows and decorative objects like ceramic vases and art that can grab attention and be easy to move.”

However, for those who aren’t intimidated, Smith believes it’s best to opt for larger furniture items such as velvet sofas or alternately combine smaller furniture items such as colorful upholstered chairs and hand-carved wooden tables. “Home items are so much like fashion items, once you see ‘it’ in this color, you’ll know if you want to take it home.”

On the other end of the spectrum, maxi will also fade in 2023. “The whole extreme trend has been stressful in general but especially in the bedroom and it seems like it has run its time and out. Kristi Nelson, founder and lead designer of KMNelson Design says: “Personally, I like to mix and match but in an extreme approach, especially in the bedrooms, it’s too much. In the bedroom, it’s about being mixed, not extreme.”

Large sized bedrooms

For years, oversized master suites and bedrooms that roughly rival the size of apartments have been a must for new buildings and renovated homes. But interior designer Holly Freres of JHL Design expects that to be out of date in 2023. “We’re seeing a move away from larger bedroom spaces. Bedrooms are getting a little smaller and more intimate. We’re even seeing a combination of bedrooms and bathrooms in one room without a door,” Except for the toilet. We recently designed a space that combines a sleeping area and a bathtub. The clients wanted to make the space as efficient as possible.”

The designer told me her clients prioritize larger shared spaces like living rooms instead.

Matching bedroom furniture

Bedroom sets are supposed to be a favorite since the advent of big box stores. After all, it is much easier to choose one style than to try to match the bed, nightstands, dresser, chest and dresser. While this look has become less popular in recent years, it will be completely outdated in 2023.

“Uniform combinations can make a room feel as impersonal as a furniture showroom, and instead by bringing in a variety of colors, textures, and materials, you can achieve a unique look,” says Smith. “I love looking for a couple of accent tables for my nightstand — one might be a brushed gold metallic or the other is handcrafted in Indonesia with an eclectic carved wood design.”

Realtor Lori Levine Harris of Brooke & Lori agrees. “A dresser with two matching nightstands is on the way out. Maximums are there, and bedrooms need a little flare. Think mismatched nightstands with different patterns and looks on a wallpaper backdrop.”

Uncomfortable bedrooms

When it comes to the bedroom, comfort is key and anything uncomfortable is a huge no. “We’re seeing a shift from simple spaces to luxurious, comfortable spaces. I think people have a new desire for a space that’s stylish and comfortable too. Consumer-oriented brands have made luxury affordable and customers are jumping right in!” says Coley Hull, founder of Coley Home.

So what types of velor pieces are currently on trend? New York agent Steve Gottlieb of Coldwell Banker Warburg told me, “Much like the trend of curved chairs and sofas in living room spaces, we’re also seeing it in the bedroom. Bedroom stools and headboards are curved, and bouclé doesn’t seem like a flash design trend, but it might be.” Here for longer. As remote work is here to stay, people are spending more time at home and in their bedrooms, so visual and physical comfort is key.”

TV in the bedroom

While sitting in bed and binge-watching TV can be incredibly relaxing, many people have realized that they don’t need a TV for this. Gottlieb has seen fewer TVs in the bedroom lately. This one is debatable, but even when ‘goblin mode’ becomes prevalent, many people seem to choose to remove their TV from the bedroom. They have their phone with them and maybe their iPad on their bedside table, but then they have the TV in the living room or The living room. Although many people use the TV in bed, many people choose to try to keep their bedroom as quiet as possible, in part by not installing a TV there.”

Harris is also seeing this trend in Los Angeles. Our clients remove televisions from their bedrooms. Haven’t you heard that it disrupts your sleep? Bedrooms are a sanctuary, so we’re seeing more and more people move the TV out of the bedrooms.”

coastal Jeddah

The ever-popular coastal granny aesthetic will evolve in 2023, HomeGoods style expert Jenny Reimold told me. “In the wake of the coastal granny, blue will take over indoors and outdoors, however, evolving from shabby chic to a clean, modern coastal look—think fewer From floral fabrics, sailboats, and more muted stripes, driftwood, and mixed neutrals and coppers.”

She suggests subtly incorporating this look. “Swap out boldly colorful bedding for layered neutral sheets and duvets. HomeGoods has quality bedding options at an affordable price. You can also bring your space together by swapping out a crowded rug with a sisal drapery for a more natural aesthetic and pair hydrangeas in a navy glass vase next to a hurricane lamp and coastal photography book for a coffee table display.”

Toxic furnishings

While there has been more interest in wellness in recent years as well as sustainability, consumers continue to make steps toward better choices when it comes to health and chemical exposure. One such product is paint, explains Steve Baland, founder of CarbonShack Design. “Use low- or no-VOC paints to reduce or eliminate off-gases in your home. This is especially important in bedrooms, where we spend up to eight straight hours or more each day, and where Rest and wellness are key.”

It is also advised to choose furniture made primarily of natural products, in contrast to cheap materials such as composite panels, which emit harmful gases from their contents of glue and resin. “Natural wood, clay, and fabrics like hemp, which are inherently antimicrobial and soften with use, are great options.”
