Get Ready for 2024: Home Design Trends You'll Love (Inside and Out)

Updated: Feb 1

Home Design Trends

Say goodbye to predictable white walls and cool grays! It's time to embrace 2024's home design trends, where bold statements, warm coziness, and a connection to nature take center stage.

Kitchen Upgrades That Steal the Show:

  • Backsplash Extravaganza: Forget boring tiles! Designers are going big with slabs of stone or quartz, stretching all the way to the ceiling for a dramatic focal point. Imagine that gorgeous granite vein reaching for the sky!

  • Fluted Details: Add visual interest with this textural accent on furniture, vanities, and even kitchen islands. It's the rough-and-ready touch that elevates everyday elements.

Warmth Wins:

  • Cozy Neutrals: Step aside, stark whites! Beiges, creamy off-whites, and rich browns are taking over, creating a "calmer, more welcoming environment." Layer different tones and textures for a space that feels both inviting and sophisticated.

  • Bluetiful Hues: Embrace the color of the year! From sky-inspired brights to deep, watery shades, blue is popping up everywhere – in decorative materials, housewares, and even paint.

Timeless Touches for a Home with Soul:

  • Old is New Again: Incorporate traditional details and materials like brick, handmade tiles, rustic wood, and arches. This trend isn't just stylish, it's sustainable too. Modern and traditional homes alike can benefit from a touch of "quiet luxury."

  • Handmade Flair: Go unique with one-of-a-kind pieces like custom bathroom vanities or handmade tiles. This trend reflects a desire for spaces with personality and character.

Smart Solutions for Everyday Life:

  • Appliance Garages: Keep countertop clutter at bay with these stylish "garages." Sliding cabinets or specialized compartments hide away air fryers, coffee makers, and more, keeping your surfaces clear and sleek.

  • Modern Herringbone: This classic pattern gets a twist with diagonal and vertical layouts, adding visual interest and movement to kitchens and bathrooms.

Mud-tastic Rooms:

  • Mud-Laundry Room Combo: Conquer the entryway mess with this practical duo. Wash muddy boots and sandy towels right away with a utility sink, and keep coats, shoes, and sports gear organized thanks to plenty of cabinets, hooks, and cubbies.

Outside the Box (and Between the Pavers):

  • Greenery in the Cracks: Soften walkways and patios with greenery tucked between pavers. This adds natural beauty, permeability, and design versatility, making your outdoor space feel lush and inviting.

Bonus: Neutral Wall Color Guide:

  • Earthy Tones: Connect with nature through warm-toned neutrals like Portola Paint's Roman Clay. Think pale khaki green, warm greige, or even a subtle terracotta.

  • Relaxed Palettes: Ditch the one-color approach and embrace a mix of mellow neutrals like light rust, olive, warm coral, and rich browns. Create your own custom palette based on your favorite hues.

  • Taupe Takes Over: Bid farewell to cool "millennial grey" and embrace the warmer, more versatile taupe. This earthy neutral pairs beautifully with other warm tones to create a relaxed and inviting space.

Remember, trends are just a starting point! Don't be afraid to mix and match, personalize your space, and create a home that reflects your unique style and makes you feel comfortable and happy.

So, whether you're dreaming of a dramatic backsplash, handmade details, or a cozy neutral haven, these 2024 home design trends have something for everyone. Get inspired, experiment, and have fun creating your dream space!
