With the new year come new and hot trends for all your kitchen decor needs. 2024 is all about going big, especially when it comes to the design, colors, and layout of your house. Your kitchen is one of the most essential parts of your home, so adding some extra glam to spruce it up is worth the money. To help you with your interior design needs, there are a couple of trends you should check out beforehand.
1. Sage Tinted Cabinets
Sage green is becoming more and more popular when it comes to adding some color to your kitchen. Commonly used with white and black marble countertops, they add color to the space without making it look cheap and overly done. If you’re into minimalism and clean designs, then sage green tints can help you achieve that with a little splash of color.
2. Statement Kitchen Hood
Remodeling your cooking area has never been more fun. With multipurpose kitchen hoods, you can not only clean the air inside, but you can also add to the overall aesthetic of the place. From more rustic-looking ones to golden centerpieces to overarching walnut wood hoods, there are endless options available.
3. Terrazzo Tiles
Colorful flecks that add a unique texture, terrazzo tiles not only look gorgeous but are also fantastic for the environment. They’re essentially a composite of repurposed chips of marble, glass, granite, and quartz combined to form a beautiful tile. If you’re worried about them taking away from the minimal style, don’t worry because there’s a lot of variety.
4. Hidden Lighting
Say goodbye to clunky lighting fixtures and say hello to hidden lighting in 2024. The best way to add them to your own house is to add them to some spots in the ceiling, tuck them under work surfaces, and use under-cabinet LED strips. What this does is that it emphasizes the right places and creates a warm glow in the kitchen.
5. Integrated Coffee Machines
Everyone loves a freshly brewed cup of coffee, so your coffee machine deserves to be on display. Newer kitchens have built-in coffee machine spaces where you can get your daily caffeine fix. Not only is it useful for people who love their hot drinks, but it also adds to the modern look of the place and leaves room for other things.
6. Outdoor Bars
People are bringing their entertainment outside, with bars being a great way to socialize with friends and family. While you can enjoy a warm meal inside the main kitchen area, the party happens outside. It also looks gorgeous and makes for a great spot that adds life to your home.
7. Eco-Friendly Materials
With our carbon footprint increasing with each passing day, eco-friendly kitchens are the next big thing. Not only do they help reduce the damage we’re causing to the planet, but they also introduce new textures and palettes to the world of interior design. From cork flooring to Dekton countertops to Butcher-Block Countertops, they’re all the hype this year.
8. Integrated Smart Technology
Technological advancements haven’t left any industry untapped. Kitchens are now being fitted with innovative technology in terms of aesthetics, including lighting systems for customizable ambiance, motion-activated lighting, and intelligent wine storage solutions. Not only are they highly functional, but they also add to the visual appeal.
9. Multifunctional Kitchen Islands
Gone are the days when kitchen islands were just used to prepare meals. In 2024, they’re being incorporated with multifaceted utilities like charging stations, adjustable height to convert into a working space, and extra storage space below the countertops. It’s all about utilizing smaller spaces more efficiently.
10. Gold Hardware
Previously, matte black was all the hype, but now there seems to be a shift towards a more golden approach. From golden sink faucets to overhanging light covers laced with gold, the entire look of the kitchen feels more royal. However, you mustn’t overdo it since it might look gimmicky.
11. Open Shelves
You might be terrified of open shelves because all your clutter is right on display; however, it will motivate you to clean up your kitchen more often. When done correctly, it helps beautify the space. Mix and match close and open shelves by putting statement pieces on display and utilities modularly. From potted flowers to antique vases, the possibilities are limitless.
Greenery is a great way to liven up the kitchen for a more natural and eco-friendly look. Hanging dry herbs or framing pressed flowers will make the place look more vibrant and colorful. You can also add large potted plants on the floor to give it that extra pizzazz.
13. Eat-in Kitchens
To promote family dine-ins, eat-in kitchens are the way to go. Whether it’s a cozy kitchen nook or a more modern countertop with a high chair look, they’re the perfect way to enjoy a hearty meal with your loved ones. You can also add a built-in banquette that’s both functional and convenient while adding a burst of color to the space.
14. Modern Vintage Design
It’s essential to go back to the roots for some inspiration now and then. Inspired by a 1940s diner, people are adding elements from the past into their modern-looking kitchens. From chrome accents to geometric patterns to battered furnishings, there is a lot of room to play around with.
What’s Going Out of Style for Kitchens in 2024?
As we welcome newer trends, we have to bid our farewell to some old ones.
- Closed-off kitchens are becoming a thing of the past as people are leaning more towards integration of the cooking area with the dining room or living area.
- All-white kitchens are losing popularity because everyone is tired of having the same bland space, with little room to play with color.
- Stainless steel hoods might have been functional, but they’re no longer welcomed due to their lack of visual appeal.
- High-gloss finishing is being undermined by a more matte feel as it looks more elegant than shiny surfaces.
