What will be trendy in home design next year? Houzz, a top website for home renovation and design, put together a list of the 10 home design trends they believe will be big in 2024.

1. Blending Backsplashes

Backsplashes have been trendy in kitchen design for several years now, but a growing trend that Houzz sees continuing to gain popularity is the use of more than one backsplash material. For example, you may have a tile above perimeter cabinets and a slab of stone or quartz behind the cooktop or range that matches your countertops. Or you could choose two different tiles and patterns to mix things up in different spots.

2. Fluted Cabinets and Details

According to Houzz, fluted details have been showing up more frequently on cabinets and furniture, and that isn’t expected to end any time soon. The gorgeous look is a great way to add some texture (and style) in areas that are typically plain and overlooked, like kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities.

3. Warm Neutrals

Are you feeling like grays are getting a bit boring and dated? You are not alone. Designers are seeing a shift from the grays and whites to warmer tones, like beiges, creamy off-whites, and rich browns. These warm neutrals evoke nature and create calmer, cozier spaces.

4. Beautiful Blues

If you have kept up with the 2024 Colors of the Year from the various paint companies, you probably noticed blue was prominently featured on the lists. Blue is always a popular choice for home design thanks to its calming nature that makes it perfect for pretty much any room in your home. That, according to Houzz and paint companies, will continue in 2024.

5. Traditional/Timeless Design

Houzz’s U.S. Kitchen Trends Report noted that in 2023, homeowners have begun shifting back to more traditional elements and materials. This includes things like selecting wood finish over painted cabinets. Wood gained three points in popularity last year, ranking second to white cabinets.

6. Handmade Features

Tying into the timeless concept, homeowners are looking more and more at handmade and custom features for their homes. This includes handmade tiles, custom bathroom vanities, and other elements designed just for their home. For example, Houzz found that 62 percent of homeowners doing a bathroom renovation opt for a custom or semi-custom vanity.

7. Appliance Garages

From toasters and blenders to air fryers and coffee makers, there are a lot of small appliances in kitchens, and many of them need to be easily accessible. That’s where appliance garages come in. An appliance garage is a compartment or cabinet designed to house your frequently used small appliances. They often sit on countertops as an extension of upper cabinets but can also be part of a floor-to-ceiling cabinet install or a pantry. Click here for an example of an appliance garage.

8. Herringbone

Houzz says classic herringbone patterns are coming back into style and will be one of the trends of 2024. It’s a versatile pattern that can be used on floors, bathroom tiles, backsplashes, and more. And, while trendy now, it also has a classic feel, meaning it isn’t likely to feel overly dated in the near future.

9. Mud-Laundry Rooms

According to Houzz, the combination mud room/laundry room is an increasingly popular setup for busy families looking to minimize dirt in their home. It’s an all-in-one place where kids and kids at heart can take off dirty clothes and put them directly in the wash before going into the rest of the home. To make this combo room even more user-friendly, Houzz recommends adding cabinets, hooks, and cubbies for storage and organization.

10. Plantings Between Pavers

With the shift to more water-wise landscaping, pavers have become a popular way to incorporate more hardscape into yards. Houzz is seeing increased interest in softening the pavers with greenery tucked between pavers. This is a great option for garden paths and patios made of pavers and makes the landscape feel more natural and lush.
