Home Renovation: 2024 Design Trends

Tackling a home renovation project can be daunting when you find yourself overwhelmed with ideas from many different sources. You may also feel uncertainty about developing a interior design plan that isn’t going to be outdated within a few years. Whether you’re remodeling your entire home or simply designing an individual room, these popular home renovation trends have staying power.

Open Space Concepts with Multifunctional Areas

It is still popular for living and kitchen spaces to be open to each other, however remote work and home-based learning are now the norm and the demand for multifunctional spaces is on the rise.  2024 home renovation trends suggest that rooms designed with versatility in mind are key.  Think about a designing a home office that double as guest rooms or creating a dining area that also serves as a study space.

Stylish Laundry and Mudrooms

Once considered a utilitarian space, laundry rooms are getting serious home renovation attention. With proper cabinetry, beautiful backsplashes, and thoughtful lighting, laundry can almost be a fun chore.  Mud rooms are also one of the top home renovation trends.  From specialty storage for outerwear and shoes to custom solutions for washing pets, you can carve out these spaces in the smallest of homes.

No More White Kitchens

Upgrading or improving your kitchen is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your home. Although white cabinetry will never go out of style, the all-white kitchen is trending away.  Natural materials such as wood and stone along with bold colors for cabinetry is becoming vogue in home renovations.  Other trends include statement countertops in wood or stone, curved islands and integrated coffee stations. Do your research before diving into a kitchen renovation since it will most likely be a major investment.

Illuminate Every Room

Good lighting can completely alter the style of a room and enhance a space, so giving it thought and attention is important.  Peppering a ceiling with recessed lights is not the most efficient or flattering way to light a room.  An effective lighting plan, in a home renovation, includes a mix of ambient, task and general illumination.  When it comes to trends, wall sconces and prominent ceiling fixtures (the more unusual-the better), are being used to create focal points in a space.

Exterior Living Spaces

Outdoor living spaces became extremely desirable during the pandemic, and that popularity is not waning.  Regardless of the size of your exterior space, tucking in a cozy patio, deck, or garden area during a home renovation is a must.  Consider ease of access from inside along with ambient lighting when designing an outdoor space.
