The Top 6 kitchen trends designers are praising in 2024 | Kitchen Style Guide

Updated: Apr 2

Our humble kitchen, the heart of our home, a space where style meets functionality!  For the style-conscious individual, the kitchen is not just a place to cook; it’s a canvas for self-expression and a reflection of personal taste. Taking a closer look at kitchen trends in 2024 we can expect earthy aesthetics and a focus on eco-friendly materials.

Top Tip: Still trying to figure out what kitchen style suits you? - Taking our Kitchen Style Quiz can help you pinpoint your personal style!

1. Modern Minimalism

It seems minimalism is always on trend, this is also the case for 2024. Embracing clean lines, sleek surfaces, and clutter/free spaces can help achieve a modern aesthetic. 

Achieving the modern kitchen design:

  • Handleless cabinets - this style suits most contemporary or classic style kitchens, creating an effortlessly smooth look. An ideal choice for open-plan kitchens, as brass wear can interrupt the flow between zones, making the change between areas seem harsh. Handleless cabinets also offer a sleek, modern sense of minimalism.

  • Clean lines & a natural touch - Simple and understated, the contemporary kitchen utilizes high functionality and streamlined surfaces for a dramatic flair, but with a style that often incorporates traditional ideas for a more homely, welcoming feel. Incorporating a natural wood wall panel or a brushed oak table can help bring the natural elements into the kitchen design, without adding too many elements. 

  • Scandi-vibes - It’s easy to see why the Scandi-style kitchen has proved so popular. Scandinavian design is often linked with clean lines, functionality, and sleek, minimalistic design. Utilizing bright colours such as white, grey, cotton, limestone and teal keeps the space bright with a luxurious feel. Soft and calm ambiance, clean lines paired with cosy textures offers a welcoming vibe.

2. Sustainable Materials

With an increasing focus on sustainability, eco-friendly materials are taking center stage in kitchen design. Look for options such as reclaimed wood, recycled glass, and bamboo to create a stylish and environmentally conscious kitchen. Not only do these materials reduce your carbon footprint, but they also add warmth and character to your space. In our kitchen brochure, you can take a closer look at our very popular range of recycled cabinet doors, ranging from a deep walnut colour to a bright artstone.

3. Mixed Metals

Say goodbye to matchy-matchy kitchen hardware and embrace the trend of mixing metals in 2024. Experiment with combinations like brushed brass, matte black, and stainless steel for a dynamic and eclectic look. From cabinet handles to faucets and light fixtures, mixing metals adds depth and visual interest to your kitchen design. Metal high-chairs can create a rustic feel, offering a new dimension and depth to your kitchen. 

4. Bold Backsplashes

Make a statement in your kitchen with a bold backsplash that adds personality and flair.  Geometric patterns, colourful tiles, terrazzo tiles, and textured surfaces create a welcome break in a monotone kitchen palette, adding personality and texture. Whether you opt for a vibrant mosaic or a dramatic marble slab, the backsplash is your opportunity to inject style and creativity into your kitchen space.

5. Smart Technology Integration

In the age of smart homes, kitchen technology continues to evolve and innovate. Incorporate smart appliances, touchless faucets, and voice-activated assistants to streamline your kitchen experience. From controlling lighting and temperature to managing grocery lists and recipes, smart technology adds convenience and efficiency to your daily routine.

6. Natural Design Elements

Bring the outdoors in with biophilic design elements that promote a connection to nature. Introduce natural materials like wood and stone, incorporate indoor plants, and maximize natural light to create a soothing and inviting kitchen environment. Experiment with countertop materials and flooring for a more natural feel.  Biophilic design not only enhances aesthetics, but also improves air quality and overall well-being.
