In 2024, the ever-evolving landscape of kitchen design continues to embrace innovative concepts and luxurious aesthetics, shaping culinary spaces into functional and stylish hubs of the home. As we delve into the year ahead, it's essential to explore the top five kitchen trends that are set to redefine modern living and inspire creativity in kitchen design. From the revival of classic cabinet colors to the allure of marble veined backsplashes, these trends represent the forefront of contemporary culinary innovation. Let's embark on a journey through the transformative trends that promise to elevate kitchen spaces in 2024.

Trend 1: Cabinet Colors are Back

One of the easiest ways to change your kitchen is with the cabinet color. You can even paint the existing kitchen cabinets if you’re looking for a budget DIY with a BIG impact. Because the cabinets take up so much visual space in a kitchen, you want to pick a color that you’re going to love. White kitchens are becoming less popular. But if you want to keep light colored cabinets, go with a soft beige. Beige cabinets can be modern, or transitional.

Trend 2: Display what you love!

Adding character into the kitchen can be tricky! One way is to have open shelving for your favourite items like plates, cutting boards, or cook books. You can also display your spices in the kitchen with a spice cabinet display. I love the added detail of the brass rail! It really makes this corner pop.

Trend 3: Welcome to the multipurpose kitchen island

One of the biggest kitchen design trends that has taken over in the past 7 years, and is here to stay is a large kitchen island. Kitchen Islands are so popular because they make the kitchen a space that is not just for cooking. It’s also a space for eating and entertaining. It’s the focal point of the kitchen. A large island serves such a functional purpose for families who are rushing in the morning to pack lunches, eat breakfast and jet out the door! It’s easy to dump all the dishes in the sink/dishwasher. An island that faces a living room is great for the open movement of guests throughout the main level of a home.

Trend 4: Floating Shelves

When you walk into a kitchen, all the floor to ceiling, wall to wall cabinet doors can make the space look heavy. This is why floating shelves have become one the latest kitchen trends in recent years. By removing even 1 set of upper cabinets, you can make the space look so much lighter and brighter. Wood floating shelves will continue to be popular, but we will also see marble shelving in 2024. You can also add some interest to the shelves with a brass rail.

Trend 5: Hide your Appliances

Panel ready appliances are going to continue to be popular. They make a home look more high end because there is a continuous row of cabinet doors. If you want to achieve this look, you must buy a panel ready appliance. Also, work with your cabinet company so they can make a custom door to the exact size of the fridge. Don’t buy a regular fridge and expect to be able to add a panel door to it! To reduce the clutter on the countertop, add an appliace station. This is a cabinet door that covers the small appliances like blender, coffee machine, toaster, etc. This looks so much cleaner and you can even make it a feature with a different style door.
