10 Design Trends For 2024
Happy New Year Everyone! Well, it’s that time of year, where we say goodbye to the last year and start making predictions for the new year!
Actually … it doesn’t exactly work like that, because we look back to 2023 to see which trends were gaining traction with our clients, and which ones were falling out of favor.
From what we’ve seen at markets, showrooms, design shows, conferences and simply at our meetings with our clients, there are quite a few things really resonating with homeowners right now. Take a look and see if they inspire your renovation plans.
1. Green, Green and More Green
The popularity of green right now is a confluence of a few factors:
- One, the organic, nature-inspired color palettes that have been big for the past few years.
- Two, the connection of those biophilic palettes and the wellness at home trend.
- Three, the popularity of English kitchens right now, with their forest, racing and sage green cabinetry.
Whatever it is, there are many beautiful paints, wallcoverings, textiles and tiles available right now in a gorgeous range of greens. For example, we love the variation in tones seen in our British Pub Basement Renovation, shown here. Brass complements it beautifully.
2. Jewel Tones
When it comes to 10 design trends for 2024, color is a big story. Coming out of the muted years that led up to the pandemic, people stuck at home were ready for big splashes of color. And rich jewel tones were great go-tos.
In addition to turquoise, seen here on this scrumptious basement bar, jewel tones include:
- Rose Quartz
3. Fearless Use of Color
Our final trend related to color is the audacious use of it. Our clients are going for bold colors and fearless combinations, and it’s really fun to see. While warm neutrals or all-white have their place, it’s so much fun to see bold color.
4. Antiques Are Back
Mixing old and new is always a great basis for design. And so is reusing/recycling/repurposing. There is no better way to accomplish that than by incorporating beautiful antique pieces.
Whether they are family heirlooms, flea market finds or 1st Dibs splurges, antiques will bring a patina, a history and a timeless look to any space.
5. Playtime at Home
After the pandemic was declared over, we were all excited to get back out into the world. But we also found that a lot of places can’t hold a candle to home!
Homeowners are continuing to outfit their homes for entertaining, playing, screening movies, working out, spa time, fire pit gatherings and more.
6. Wellness at Home
Speaking of wellness at home, yes, it’s still a huge trend and will continue throughout this year. This is not only about home gyms and yoga studios. Its also about adding features like saunas or steam showers.
Choosing healthy materials for renovations is also becoming more and more popular. Finishes with low to no VOCs, natural materials and keeping the air quality healthy are all on trend.
7. Bath Time Is Back
While many homeowners have gotten rid of tub-shower combos in the past few years, others are finding their way back to bath time. And there are new reasons why.
Recent articles about the benefits of a hot bath, a cold plunge, and soaking in epsom salts have come out recently. Having a bath at home is certainly related to the wellness at home trend.
Aesthetically, when our clients have the space for it, they also love the look of a beautiful and sculptural freestanding bathtub. There are so many gorgeous options in a wide range of styles and even colors.
8. 8. Fancy Laundry Rooms
One space that definitely continues to grow in size and functionality is the laundry room. Homeowners want things like:
- Extra storage
- Folding space
- Air drying rods
- Extra pantry storage
- Room for pets and their supplies
- Gift wrapping stations
- Sinks for hand-washing clothing, soaking and working on stains
- Pet washing stations
With all that time to spend in the laundry room, our clients want them to be places they enjoy. They are no longer the place for an ugly utility sink and fluorescent lighting.
Instead, laundry rooms are fancy! This includes lovely window treatments, wallcoverings, natural stone countertops, elegant lighting, handsome hardware, custom cabinetry, beautiful flooring and more.
9. Window Treatments
Window treatments come in all sorts of shapes, lengths, textures and patterns. You can also layer — perhaps bamboo shades with cafe curtains lined in blackout fabric that’s concealed. Perhaps you’d like to add a ribbon trim or pom-poms. The fun thing about today’s window treatments are all the options.
10. Bar Sinks
Many homeowners have discovered the pros of having a second sink in the kitchen. A second person can help prep, a second area can be set up for serving drinks … heck, you can fill it with ice and chill cold brews in there during a party.
