The top kitchen trends of 2024

Here are some of the trends that we believe will gain significant traction and popularity in the year 2024


Open Shelving Trend: The use of open shelving in kitchens was gaining popularity, providing a kitchen with an accessible and open feel. This design choice not only allows easy access to dishes but also contributes to creating a visually spacious environment.

Smart Appliances Integration: The incorporation of smart technology into kitchen appliances was on the upswing. This encompassed appliances like refrigerators and ovens that could be controlled through smartphones or voice commands, adding a touch of modern convenience.

Dark and Bold Colours in Kitchen Decor: While white kitchens have been a timeless choice, darker colours like deep blues, greens, and charcoal greys were becoming more favoured. These rich tones bring drama and sophistication to the kitchen space, deviating from the traditional light colour schemes.

Sustainable Material Emphasis: A growing emphasis was placed on using eco-friendly and sustainable materials in kitchen design. This involved incorporating recycled materials, and reclaimed wood, and opting for energy-efficient appliances, aligning with the increasing focus on environmental consciousness.

Multipurpose Islands: Kitchen islands were evolving beyond being just additional counter space. Many were designed with built-in storage, sinks, and seating areas, transforming them into versatile hubs for various activities such as cooking, dining, and socializing.

Quartz Countertops’ Continued Popularity: Quartz countertops maintained their popularity due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and a wide array of available colours and patterns, offering a practical and stylish choice for kitchen surfaces.

Integrated Appliances for a Seamless Look: The trend of seamlessly integrating appliances into cabinetry for a streamlined appearance was prevalent. This involved concealing dishwashers, refrigerators, and other appliances behind custom panels to maintain a cohesive and integrated aesthetic within the kitchen space.
