Outdoor Living Trends for 2023

by | Jan 17, 2023

Now that 2023 is here, it’s “out with old, in with the new” time. That means it’s time to discover the trends that are going to lead us into the new year. In every single category, trends are a determinative factor when it comes to design and what we can expect. Yes, even for outdoor living.

Outdoor living itself has taken off and become massively popular over the past couple of years. People are ready to spend their lives outside instead of in, and they’re budgeting accordingly. Home design has seen a large shift to outdoor living and it’s not expected to slow down anytime soon.

Without further adieu, let’s take a look at this year’s outdoor living trends:

2023 Trends in Outdoor Living

Various Colors and Textures

Instead of the old basic solo color and texture we’re used to seeing outside, designers have begun playing with a variety. While choosing colors and textures for your outdoor living space, consider mixing and matching different materials. Choose two or more, such as wood, metal, pavers, and composites. This gives the space variety and character, making it fun, aesthetic, and welcoming. You can also do the same with colors. Choose a variety and watch your space come to life.

Artificial Turf


Sustainability is the word in 2023 and beyond. Artificial turf is a top ground to use in any yard this year, as it greatly minimizes water use. Artificial turf looks nice, is comfortable, and provides simplicity and cleanliness to every outdoor living space.

Bringing Indoors Out

Creating a cozy and aesthetic outdoor living space that has tones of indoor living is rapidly gaining traction. This typically looks like the addition of pergolas or other types of shades, along with any decorative elements. People also like to build outdoor kitchens, game areas, and more, making their outdoor space a fun and relaxing place to be.

Sustainable Materials

Yes, sustainability again. It’s a huge concept that is being considered in every aspect of design. When you’re decorating your outdoor space, this looks like choosing materials that are made from recycled, natural, and upcycled materials. Popular ways to decorate with sustainable materials outdoors include using reclaimed wood, jute mats, solar lights, biodegradable pots, and other naturally-made elements.


You’ve probably heard the term; cottagecore. It’s like a combination of the simple life and country living. It uses soft hues and evokes the feelings of simplicity, beauty, and peace. Cottagecore decor looks vintage and inviting. Decorate your outdoor space with little trinkets, treasures, and rustic-looking components.


If you’re thinking of designing your outdoor living space in 2023, pay attention to the trends. There are a ton of great-looking, sustainable, and welcoming aspects that you may want to include. Consider putting in artificial turf, using a variety of colors and textures, creating an indoor space outside, and using the popular cottagecore style in your design. You’ll enjoy an outdoor living space that everyone will love.
