2023 Home Building Trends: Prioritizing Health in the Home

The pandemic has had lasting effects on what people want from their home, making health a priority in 2023 home building trends. According to the experts at Dimension Design-Build-Remodel, Inc., demand is also increasing for smart technology, flexible rooms, and floor plans that are less open.

Indoor Air Quality

The trend that continues to gain popularity year after year is energy efficiency. “Home builders have gotten really good at building energy efficient homes,” said David Kallie, CR, CAPS, Dimension’s President and CEO. “When we started making these buildings really tight, we didn’t consider how that would affect indoor air quality and our health.”

Poor indoor air quality can cause or exacerbate many symptoms. Sometimes called “sick building syndrome,” these acute health and comfort issues include headaches, fatigue, skin irritation, dizziness, nausea, and a variety of respiratory problems. “Indoor air quality is even more important for people with asthma or allergies,” David said.

Healthy home building is gaining popularity as more people are educated on the causes and effects of bad indoor air quality, which include:

  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from carpeting, upholstery, adhesives, manufactured wood products, paint, varnish, cleaning products, and more.
  • Inadequate ventilation.
  • Biological contaminants like mold, bacteria, pollen, and viruses.

With health consciousness trending, demand is growing for toxin-free construction materials, low or no VOC finishes, and allergen prevention throughout the home.

Smart Technology

Smart home technology will be more mainstream in 2023, even for those who are less tech savvy. “Especially in new homes, people are implementing more built-in smart devices,” said David, including thermostats, security systems, lighting, and appliances. “This year, technology will give more people control of their home’s safety, energy efficiency, comfort, and entertainment.”

Multifunctional Spaces for Flexible Living

With people spending more time at home, multifunctionality is gaining importance. “Room design is getting more flexible to meet people’s needs,” Kallie said. For example, the formal dining room may be set up to transform into a home office, while upstairs, the playroom can become a guest room or a yoga studio as needed.

Closed Floor Plans

Some aspects of the open floor plan will always be around, but homeowners are finding they need more privacy. “Some people want more rooms, more walls, which will mean more storage,” David said. “Some want the option for privacy, so we may see more pocket doors in new homes this year.”

Building a custom home or addition gives you the joy of choosing the design and style of every detail, whether it is trending or not. Is 2023 your year to build the exact home you want? Dimension Inc. will design and build you a home or addition that not only enhances your quality of life but allows you to live a healthier lifestyle.

What Our Customers Say

We didn't think a basement remodel could be stress-free, but it was. From initial design concepts (you knew what we wanted better than we did!) to having a more functional space in our home, Dave and Jonathan let us know what to expect from start to finish. The design's functionality keeps our busy lives organized throughout the year. Our new space is "us," as it changed our lives, and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.
