Top Kitchen Design Trends for 2024

January 13, 2024
Published by

Kitchens are often the heart of the home, something we recognize as a leading home builder in Washington state. As a result, planning your new kitchen is likely to be important to you. There are a number of trends which are growing in popularity as they make this central room more functional and more friendly. Here are a few of the top trends showing up this year.

The all-white kitchen is being swept away on a wave of color. Bold colors on cabinets are popping up everywhere, adding more personality to these family spaces. Green, whether warm sage or bold emerald, is a hugely popular color choice these days. If you’re not ready to go all out, use color on your lower cabinets and island and choose more neutral colors or wood for upper cabinets. Another alternative is to bring the color in via your backsplash, instead of the cabinets. Colors, textures, and patterns can make a backsplash an eye-catching element of any kitchen.

Another way to bring color and style into your kitchen, without the same longevity, is through more decorative and ornate light fixtures. Instead of just recessed lighting, look for oversized light fixtures, often used in groups of two or three over the island for more visual impact. Large woven lampshades, over-the-top colorful chandeliers, patterned fabric shades, or colorful glass and metal hanging lamps are just some of the many options that make a big impact.

Speaking of metal, gold is making a big comeback for faucets, lamps, hardware, and more. Matte, satin, and brushed finishes offer an array of options while the gold adds warmth, a style feature showing up in every aspect of home design this year.

Another way to bring warmth into your kitchen is through the mix of stained and painted wood cabinetry. It’s another way to introduce color that works as a neutral, but is warmer and more cozy than the all-white kitchen. The mix of stained and painted cabinets in one piece adds visual interest, while still leaving the space open for pops of color to add a unique style.

Finally, for a fun and unusual way to add new style to your kitchen, consider a decorative range hood. New shapes, patterns, and colors are popping up to add an artistic touch to a still functional element of every kitchen.

Whether you go big and bold or draw from a few new trends for a more subtle update, there are plenty of stylish and fun ways to create a kitchen where you and the whole family will enjoy spending time. With Garrette Custom Homes, an outstanding home builder in Washington state, you will find a team that will work with you on every aspect of your new home to help you create a space that perfectly blends form and function to fit your unique style.
