Interior design trends work their way across all sectors--house, home, retail, automotive and, of course, salon design.  If you want a little headsup on what will be popular next year, the interior experts Hovia have written a list of trends which are predicted to increase their popularity in 2023 which can help you keep in touch with all the latest styles.  Their focus is on home interiors but you can translate these suggestions and tips to your salon home. 

  • Brighter is better

In the upcoming year the focus is all on chandeliers and lamps. There is no wrong way to choose a hanging light fixture, however what is predicted to be in trend are oversized and noticeable ones. 

  • The right colors 

If repainting walls and furniture is something in your to-do list, you might want to go in one of two directions: choose natural colors to embrace the calm vibe of earth tones or, if you’d like a pop of color, stay within the safe lines of mellow and tranquil blues and greens, with an addition of soft pinks and lavender. To finish off, you’ll find that soft gold trims are what’s missing!

This prediction is backed by Hovia’s latest sales data regarding the most popular colors on their website. This shows how buyers started purchasing these specific colors already during this year, strengthening the idea that greens, blues and natural colors have been and will be on trend. 

  • Multi-functionality

 Having a multifunctional home might be the best trend 2023 is bringing along with additions such as movie and game rooms, gyms and saunas. This won't be a new idea to a salon with multiple service centers, but the idea of mixing in a blood pressure cuff in a barbershop or a Little Free Library in the corner of a salon will continue to be ways that salons serve as community centers by embracing multi-functionality.

  • Curves

Straight lines and geometry out, curves and movement in! One of the most promising trends are curves and to achieve this style you won’t need to redo your whole space, even though that might be an option for whoever might be able to do so. In fact, just an arched doorway or some fun and lively piece of furniture such as a curved sofa can just do the trick!

  • “Mid-century chic”

It’s the return of the 60s and 70s. This means wallpapers, which were a staple of those eras.  Big patterns, pops of color, can be easily achieved with the right roll. 

  • Add some texture

Marble, wood, brick, fabric.  Texture is trending.

  • Nature… in!

This greening of a salon spaces has been a trend that many have embraced in recent years and it will continue strong.  Plants also purify the air and make your salon a healthier place.
