Kitchen design trends come and go, but if you’re planning to upgrade your kitchen soon it helps to know what direction manufacturers are going with their cabinetry, flooring, appliances and other kitchen essentials. With that in mind, we’re taking a look at 2024’s High End Kitchen Design Trends forecast.
Bring on the Blue: Blue has always been a popular color choice for kitchens – between 20-33% of people globally cite it as their favorite – and in 2024, lifestyle experts believe homeowners will double down on their love of blue. The deep navy blues that have been so trendy are giving way to more sea-inspired hues, from tranquil ocean blues and eye-catching sea glass green.
Not sure how you feel about color in your kitchen? One of the advantages of working with a professional kitchen designer is that they can help you incorporate color in a way that enhances without overwhelming your kitchen design.
Actually Useful Utility Rooms: While the kitchen is the heart of the home, is it really the place where you want the kids to take off their snow boots, the laundry to be done, pet food & supplies to be stored, and all of the other sometimes messy tasks that come with a busy family life? As Medway design build contractors, we’re seeing a lot of kitchen additions and kitchen renovation projects including mud-room entranceways that often do double duty as laundry or utility rooms. It’s a practical compromise that acknowledges the reality of family life without bringing mess and clutter into the kitchen.
Appliance Garages: While we realize this doesn’t sound like much of a trend – appliance garages have been around practically forever – the widespread popularity of large countertop appliances like air fryers and Instant Pots are creating a newfound appreciation for a place for everything and everything in its place. The closed fronts of appliance garages help create a sense of visual harmony that’s subtle yet soothing.
