2024 Kitchen Design Trends—Organic Palettes

One of the biggest kitchen trends in 2024 will be creating a connection to nature. What does this mean? Natural colors will dominate palettes, especially various shades of lush green. Whether a tranquil sage or rich emerald, green will be seen everywhere from wall paint to cabinet finishes to backsplashes.



Another way this trend will manifest is through natural material selections. Warm natural wood tones are making a comeback in a BIG way, and not just for butcher block counters. Keep your eye on warm woods with natural textures and patterns to be a leading kitchen cabinet trend. Stunning stone elements will also add to an organic design. Quartz countertops are beautiful on their own, but a matching slab backsplash is breathtaking.

2024 Kitchen Design Trends—Communal & Combination Islands

Islands have functioned as the heart of the kitchen for quite a while now. What’s changing for 2024 is how homeowners use them. We’re seeing a shift towards communal islands where seating is placed on two or even three sides. This setup fosters better communication and more conversation among those seated at the island, whereas the traditional “bar seating” along one island side makes it difficult.

The second part of this trend is that islands are not just for seating. A majority of homeowners are opting for combination islands which feature closed storage in addition to seating. This extra storage can make a big impact in terms of kitchen organization, especially when paired with custom organization solutions like drawer inserts and dividers.

2024 Kitchen Design Trends—Statement Fixtures

The biggest statements can be made with the smallest details. For example, glitzy gold beat out matte black as homeowners’ go-to choice for cabinet hardware, sink faucets, and lighting. Speaking of lighting, expect to see an uptick in bold fixtures, especially above kitchen islands. Finally, do not overlook the impact of a decorative range hood. We anticipate range hoods will make major waves in 2024 designs thanks to their ability to inject a high-end feel to any kitchen.
