It’s always exciting to consider interior decorating trends in the coming years and learn how we can use some of these concepts as blueprints to redesign or rejuvenate our homes. Whether you want to perform a complete overhaul or find some new decorating ideas, here are five shipping container home trends of 2023 to consider.
1. More Sustainable Energy
One of the advantages of shipping container homes is their potential for portability. More homeowners are seeking ways to get off the grid and create homes with their own power and water options. Solar panel systems and rain collection barrels are increasingly popular choices for maintaining your home no matter where you live.
2. Organic Materials
A noticeable shipping container home trend of 2023 is the growing rise of using organic materials in walls, furnishings, and floors. Homeowners may cover up the more industrial-looking metal of the container in favor of earthier options like cork, bamboo, wood, and cotton.
3. Multi-Purpose Areas
You may have limited space depending on how many containers make up your home. One of the best ways to get around this obstacle involves finding a way to get more use out of a single room. Options like a wall-mounted folding table that makes it easy to turn a living room into a dining area provide a great opportunity for getting the most out of your space.
4. Saturated Colors
Colors are often fickle when it comes to trends. Neutral colors might be popular one year, while pastels might make a comeback the next. 2023 seems to be a year of saturated colors. Saturated colors are intense and bright and work well with neutral colors. Vibrant purple cabinets with white countertops create a memorable and distinctive kitchen.
5. Roof Decks
To get the most use out of their shipping container homes, many owners invest in roof decks. Whether you renovate to create an interior roof access option or include a staircase or ladder to the outside, a rooftop deck is a great place to relax with a cup of coffee, take in the scenery, or bring in a little nature with a small garden.
