This year promises to embrace modernism and timeless design, from sustainable materials to multi-functional islands, the top kitchen remodel trends of 2024 will transform your space into areas of community and comfort. With the help of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), we’ve pinpointed the trends set to dominate not just 2024 but the next three years.
1. Multi-functional Islands
Kitchen islands will work as combination islands, serving as a gathering, storage, cooking, prep, and entertaining space. You can expect to see about 50% of multi-functional islands, featuring closed storage below with the remaining 40% of islands, featuring furniture-style legs with top drawers and open space for counter-height stools. Large double islands will continue to be a top priority for serving and dining.
2. Sustainable Materials
Sustainability will continue to be top-of-mind for contractors, designers, and homeowners, with a focus on durable products that lessen the need for replacements. Reusing materials include donating old kitchen cabinets or appliances.
3. Gold Hardware
According to the NKBA, homeowners are favoring gold tones, while matte black ranks second in popularity. You can expect to see kitchen sink faucets with matte, satin, or brushed finishes in gold, that will add a warmth to the kitchen atmosphere.
4. Natural Woods
You can anticipate a return of warm natural wood tones to kitchens, marking a shift from the white cabinet trend. The natural tones, textures, and patterns of wood on cabinets can add an organic touch to kitchens, especially in modern, midcentury, or Scandinavian designs.
5. Quartz Countertops
Though it isn’t necessarily a new trend, quartz countertops remain a favorite for their durability, easy maintenance, and cleanliness. According to the NKBA, quartz is the number one choice for kitchen countertops. Quartz is antimicrobial, making it a great sanitary choice for cooking. It’s also easier to keep clean than granite, which is porous and can stain from wine and oils.
6. Unique Range Hoods
Creative range hood designs are taking off. Materials like wood, stainless steel, and mixed materials add a custom touch. You can easily adopt this trend by painting an existing wooden hood to match your home’s unique color palette.
