Top 7 Design Tips for Elevating Your Mountain Home in 2023

With the new year in full force, reflecting on needed changes and upgrades is common. Reflection gives the perfect excuse for an update in a place you cherish the most: your mountain home. Whether it’s your beloved permanent residence or your vacation home getaway, your mountain home can be elevated to new heights in 2023 with these top 7 design tips.

Working with the Landscape

Working with the Landscape

Creating spaces that go with the flow of the natural landscape will continue to be popular in 2023. Instead of sticking out, mountain homes will be designed to harmoniously exist in the surrounding natural setting. Natural curves, attention to space, and nature-like elements will be popular tools used within architecture and interiors. Not building but remolding or re-designing? Still consider how working with the landscape affects the feel of your home.

Focusing on the View

With beautiful views surrounding your home, it’s hard not to make them the main focus. They are the stars of the show. Make these gorgeous views the centerpiece to elevate your mountain home in 2023. You will add to the aesthetic of the home when incorporating the view into every room, no matter the room’s traditional significance. Abundant amounts of glass are needed to ensure unobstructed views of the surrounding environment.

Wide Open Floor Plans

Another tip for enhancing mountain homes in 2023 is elevating the already popular open floor plan. Whether it’s the home’s existing floor plan or one that’s being considered, there is a way to elevate it. Now open layouts will be throughout the whole home — everything will be out in the open. Create the impression of space through open and airy aspects and offer a more social atmosphere. Seamlessly flow from the indoors to outdoors in all aspects with multifunctionality and entertainment in mind.

Local and Sustainable Materials

Local and Sustainable Materials

The era of going green has taken over the design scene and will be just as prevalent in 2023. Incorporating this sustainable style is easier than expected especially in nature-centric homes. Using sustainable resources, like reclaimed wood, will continued to be seen throughout mountain homes. Supporting the local trade by sourcing materials from local vendors is a great way to personalize and bring pride to your home. Use fluted detailing as a unique way to elevate architecture and interiors.

Hint of History

Personalization is the perfect way to elevate your mountain home in 2023. Antique and vintage pieces are now at the forefront of design because of their unique purposes. Each offers glimpses into the past and makes for great conversation starters. Incorporating your travel findings or historic pieces will add personality and differentiate your mountain home from others. Keeping parts of the home’s original architecture in the new design will add character to your mountain home and intertwine a story into the design.

Soft Curves

Hint of History

Sleek features and hard edges have been staples within modern mountain homes. However, modern curves have transformed in 2023.  Now, soft curves are in, hard corners are fading out. This updated version of a beloved form elevates by creating a more inviting atmosphere within each room. Curves will be seen more throughout architecture and design through curved walls and furniture, like this sectional pictured above. While mountain homes, especially modern ones, will still possess their roots in straight lines, soft curves will bring freshness to the mountain home design in 2023.
