Breathe easy, homeowners. Natural materials are in, warmth is back, and wellness is spreading into every room. And this is one area of your life where AI isn’t taking over just yet. Whether you want to solve a frustrating functional issue at home, treat yourself to more comfort, or upgrade for resell, here are some of the most in-demand 2024 home design trends.
Bathroom: Wet Room
A top trend in bathrooms involves creating a luxurious space with a freestanding bathtub inside a large tiled shower. Called a wet room, it also features a seamless, low-curb entry and either a glass enclosure or none at all. The effect is a spa-like retreat that encourages self-care and wellness, especially if you add multiple showerheads or a steam feature.
Vibe: Warm Welcome
Industrial design is softening up as design returns to a cozier aesthetic. Whites and cool grays are giving way to warm taupes, beiges, and terra cottas in wall colors, while lighter wood stains are replacing dark, heavy ones—more lattes than espressos. Gold hardware and accents contribute to the trend. Champagne gold, in particular, is having a moment, and it’s a chic, elegant one.
Colors: Blue and Green
The colors stealing the show are in the blue and green families—whispery pale blue, muted blue violet, vivacious cobalt, energizing emerald, juicy jade, and smoky sage are some of the freshest shades. One stylish application is to paint an entire room—walls, trim, and ceiling—in a dramatic color. Consider painting either upper or lower kitchen cabinets in blue or green and leaving the others white or stained.
Decorating: Personality Punch
The most timeless design rule is to reflect your style. In the past, that meant displaying art, collections, and personal objects. It’s no longer confined to those accessories. Dynamic design options are encouraging homeowners to have more fun with big elements, too. Express yourself through colorful kitchen cabinets, bold wallpaper, statement tile, sculptural lighting, and playfully chic circular furniture. Starting points might include expanding your idea of neutrals to include blues and soft pink or coral, and choosing textiles with quirk or curiosity.
Lifestyle: Wellness Wins
Healthy living is influencing design and remodeling choices more than ever. Industry groups report a demand for appliances with a variety of refrigeration types and integrated steaming and air-frying; cold-plunge pools; and “snug” rooms, a British-ism for a cozy nook that balances out open-concept living. You’ve probably heard the term “biophilic design,” which creates a connection to nature through outdoor views, energy efficiency, natural materials, and as many houseplants as you can parent.
