Are you someone who likes to stay on top of interior design trends? Or perhaps you’re updating a property that you might want to sell soon? You can have a lot of fun scheming up plans for your luxury kitchen renovation. Here are some of the trends to watch for 2024.
Coloured cabinets are back in the limelight, moving away from the white kitchen trend. If you’re looking for a simple way to refresh a neutral kitchen, repainting your cabinets is an easy solution! Woody greens, earthy browns and beige are all favourites at the moment and this may continue for some time.
Multi-purpose kitchen islands
This is an ongoing trend that looks set to continue into 2024. A kitchen island encourages sociability and entertainment. While someone cooks, others can be eating and talking.
They also add a sophisticated touch to any kitchen. Choose one with a waterfall edge and you’ve immediately got an eye-catching focal point. One design that really stands out is the marble effect waterfall edge.
Metallic fixtures and fittings
We’re seeing more metallic features making their way back into kitchen designs. Rose gold and copper are especially popular versions of this.
You can mix your metals effectively for a beautiful, contemporary look. You can make your metal features as subtle or bold as you like. If you just want to make it a minor feature, look for taps and light fixtures that combine one tone with a small element of a statement metal.
The popularity of wood flooring is on the increase. It has long been regarded as the most premium option in kitchen flooring. and it may be that the growing focus on sustainability is also boosting its popularity.
It’s also highly durable, long-lasting and anti-allergenic, making it a great choice. There are no fibres for bacteria and dust mites to hide in.
And one more bonus: wooden flooring can add value to your home as well.
Surfaces with interesting textures are becoming quite a prominent presence in the kitchen market. Bold wood surfaces can really make a room’s natural beauty shine, though they do involve a bit of extra care. Walnut-coloured wood and beech are especially popular. Oak is another one that people love right now, especially for a kitchen with a farmhouse theme.
And it’s not just about wood. Marble, ceramic tiles and stone are all beautifully textured materials to materials for worktops, splashbacks and other surfaces.
The backsplash is another kitchen feature that people are experimenting with more and more. It can double up as a striking accent wall.
The solid slab backsplash is likely to enjoy a moment next year. With just one continuous material it not only looks great but is easier to clean as well. Some materials that work well for this design are quartz, glass, granite or marble.
Thinking of updating your kitchen? With so many classy, creative trends taking centre stage, now is an exciting time to do it.
