In the ever-evolving world of interior design, this year you’ll see several captivating trends that will help to redefine our living spaces in 2024. As we navigate a post-pandemic era, our homes continue to take on a greater significance which is prompting a number of shifts.
Let's explore 20 of the top interior design trends for 2024:
[Pin it for Later!]
1. HOLISTIC HOMES AND SUSTAINABILITY
As building and furniture costs rise, and environmental worries grow, homeowners are leaning towards holistic designs. Rather than constructing new homes, many are choosing to revamp their existing spaces, using renewable materials and refurbished furniture and decor to bring sustainability into their design choices while still maintaining style.
2. MULTI-FUNCTIONAL SPACES
Creating multifunctional spaces within homes continues to be commonplace in 2024. With homes serving as offices, classrooms and sanctuaries, the need for versatile spaces has became more popular. Homeowners continue to seek spaces that can adapt to their daily routines whether it's remote work or family gatherings. Expect to see underutilized areas of a home become an office or study space or, in smaller homes, expect to see one room to be creatively designed so that it functions as two.
3. MOODY, NEUTRAL COLORS WITH A TWIST
2024 brings with it a color palette that is dominated by moody neutrals, rich browns, earthy greens, deep blues and warm reds. This departure from lighter neutrals adds depth and warmth to a home for a more cozy and inviting atmosphere.
4. COLORFUL KITCHENS
Based on the aforementioned trend, you may have guessed that the popularity of monochromatic, all-white kitchens is fading in 2024. Instead, people are opting for saturated colors paired with neutrals or natural wood tones for their kitchens. Expect to see rich browns, smoky blues and deep red tones that help to inject personality and charm within a kitchen space.
5. STATEMENT RANGE HOOD ALCOVES
Large range hood alcoves are going to make a bold statement in 2024. They embody a marriage of form and function - not to mention the fact that they are absolutely beautiful. Designers are creating intentional beauty while catering to the essential needs of a kitchen. These alcoves create a visually striking focal point while enhancing the overall design and functionality of a kitchen.
6. HERRINGBONE FLOORING
Herringbone floors were notably popular during the Renaissance and experienced resurgences in the Art Deco era of the early to mid-20th century. In 2024 you can expect to more people choosing this classic pattern for their hardwood and tile flooring installations - proving that herringbone continues to be a timeless and classic option for home interiors.
7. AN EMBRACE OF MID-TONE, WARM WOOD
From floors to walls to ceilings, midtone, warm wood is impacting interior design trends in 2024. Warm, midtone woods are most commonly found in nature and lend themselves well for creating an inviting, welcoming atmosphere. Expect to see warm wood furniture, beams, cabinets and ceiling details make a statement this year.
8. IMPACTFUL CEILINGS
Ceiling treatments take center stage in 2024 with wallpaper, plaster, murals, wood paneling, beams, painted accents and even tiles. Ceilings have become the fifth wall and add a beautiful dimension to home interiors.
9. STATEMENT STONE
Statement stone elements that serve as both functional and aesthetic focal points will really help to elevate interiors in 2024. Think striking marble countertops, bold fireplace surrounds or intricate and large stone accent walls.
10. ELEVATED TILE DESIGNS
In 2024 you can also expect to see designs that use tile to make a statement on floors, walls, ceilings and in niches. Zellige and checkerboard patterns will be particularly popular. Watch for the creative installation of tiles as well as it’s becoming an art form in itself. Many designers are finding interesting ways to elevate the look of simple tile so that it makes a design feel unique and special.
11. VINTAGE LIGHTING
Expect to see a throwback to vintage lighting in 2024. Lighting has always been a great way to add style and character to a space, but this year you’ll see vintage pieces playing a cameo in new designs to add extra personality within a space.
12. ADDING CHARACTER THROUGH PERSONALIZATION
And on that note, let's talk about personalization. 2024 encourages the infusion of personality through finding ways to showcase personal collections, unique handmade pieces or antique accessories to create a sense of individuality and charm within a home.
13. A REVIVAL OF VINTAGE & ORNATE ELEMENTS
People are tired of cookie-cutter spaces. In 2024 you can expect to see designs that draw inspiration from renaissance times with antique and vintage pieces or finishes and ornate details. Think iron accessories, patina finishes, ornate furniture details or dainty legs, as well as interesting crown molding, trim and arched hallways, windows and doorways.
14. FEMININE INFLUENCES
Perhaps due to the influence of the hit show Bridgerton, you expect to see coquette ( known as flirty feminine) details as an emerging interior design trend this year. Look for furnishings with scalloped edges, dainty furniture legs, decorative hardware, lace and tulle details on soft furnishings, as well as vintage and floral patterns making an appearance in home interiors in 2024.
15. FLUTING & REED DETAILS
By now you’re getting the idea that 2024 is all about adding personality and character to a space. Consequently, you can expect to see furniture and structural elements come alive with fluting and reed details that not only add beauty, but also elevate the stylistic nature of a space.
16. CASUAL SOPHISTICATION
2024 brings with it the combination of natural and luxurious materials in one space to create visual interest and add depth to designs. The result is a sophisticated aesthetic that is comfortable for all to enjoy.
17. AN INTERPLAY OF CURVES AND EDGES
Last year we saw plenty of curves in furniture and design. In 2024 we explore the relationship between curves and edges. Look for designs that incorporate furniture, décor and lighting that interplay the grace of curves with the boldness of edges to create contemporary spaces that are welcoming and comfortable.
18. A CONTINUATION OF BIOPHILIC DESIGN
The pandemic inspired the desire to get outside of the home and into nature more. 2024 design continues to embrace connecting with nature through biophilic design. Expect to see plenty of plants, green walls, fountains, nature-inspired colors and rustic textures in this year’s home designs.
19. COLOR DRENCHING a.k.a MONOCHROMATIC COLOR SCHEMES
Monochromatic colors schemes became popular in 2023 and they continue to remain on trend for 2024. Choosing a "mostly" monochromatic color palette for a space makes helps to focus attention on the “feeling” of a room rather than all of the pieces within it. To effectively execute this design trend it's important to vary the tints, shades and tones within the chosen color to create interest and depth. The use of “color drenching” remains popular because it creates intentional boldness that is eye-catching and interesting.
20. LESS FOCUS ON OPEN CONCEPT DESIGNS
With more homes needing to serve as offices and study spaces and more entertaining happening at home, distinct zones are becoming more important in interior design. People are done with sharing one big space with everyone to do everything. They want space to think and focus. As a result, expect to see new home floorplans that include more defined spaces that cater to various the various activities that are being conducted within a home. And in homes that already exist, expect to see creative ways to create dedicated spaces within unused or underutilized areas to provide more function overall.
