2024 Interior Design Trends: A Look into What’s In and What’s Out

By  0 Comments

As we enter a new decade, the world of interior design continues to evolve and surprise us with new trends. From natural stone countertops to statement ventilation hoods, there are plenty of exciting changes happening in the world of home decor. Let’s take a closer look at some of the interior design trends that are expected to make a big splash in 2024.

Sustainable and Ethical Products Take Center Stage
In recent years, there has been a growing awareness about sustainability and ethical practices in the world of interior design. Homeowners are now more conscious than ever about the materials used in their homes, and this trend is only expected to continue in 2024. One of the main areas where we’ll see this trend is in natural stone countertops.

Marble, granite and quartzite are among the top choices for homeowners who are looking for sustainable, healthy and ethical products. These stones not only add a touch of elegance to any kitchen or bathroom but also have a much lower environmental impact compared to other materials. However, it’s not just about sustainability and ethics; there is also a significant health concern that needs to be addressed.

New research has found that workers who fabricate products made with quartz are at risk of developing a potentially deadly lung disease. According to a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, July 2023, working with quartz poses a risk of silicosis caused by the inhalation of silica dust. While this poses no risk to homeowners who have quartz in their homes, it is crucial for us as designers to ensure that workers are not harmed during fabrication.

Statement Ventilation Hoods: Function Meets Aesthetics
When it comes to kitchen design, one trend that’s on its way out is the use of microwaves above stoves. In 2024, we can expect to see a significant shift toward statement ventilation hoods that not only serve their function but also add an aesthetic touch to the kitchen.

Gone are the days of bulky and unattractive ventilation systems. Instead, we’ll be seeing beautiful wood, steel and plaster hoods with ventilation liners that blend seamlessly into the overall design. These statement hoods not only help improve air quality in the kitchen but also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the space.

Artisan Tiles: A Pop of Color and History
In recent years, white subway tiles have dominated backsplashes and floors, but that is about to change in 2024. We can expect to see a shift toward artisan tiles that come in a range of interesting historical patterns, bright colors and unique shapes. These tiles not only add character to any space but also make a statement.

When it comes to choosing the right artisan tiles for your home, sustainability and health are once again key factors to consider. Look for options made from stone, ceramic or porcelain, all of which are sustainable materials that contribute to a healthy home. These tiles are not only visually appealing but also durable and long-lasting, making them an excellent investment for any homeowner.

Colorful Cabinetry: A Bold Move
When it comes to cabinetry, one trend that’s on its way out is the use of white or grey. In 2024, we’ll be seeing more fun and bold colors taking center stage. Slate blues, pine green and creamy whites are just some of the options that will be popular among homeowners.

Incorporating color into cabinetry adds a touch of personality and playfulness to any space, making it more than just a functional element in the room. We can also expect to see more use of medium stains on rift white oak, creating a subtle wood grain that adds warmth and texture to the space.

As we look forward to 2024, these are just some of the interior design trends that we can expect to see making an impact in homes across the globe. From sustainability and ethics to bold colors and artisanal elements, the world of home decor is constantly evolving, and it’s exciting to see what the future holds. So, buckle up and get ready for a new wave of creativity and innovation in
interior design!
