2024 Home Improvement Trends

Read about these 2024 home improvement trends that are on the horizon.

Anyone planning major home renovation work in 2024 should start gathering information now. Begin by drafting your list and double-checking it, noting which rooms or areas require a refresh, your budget and which style possibilities balance on-trend and timeless. We went to some of our top remodeling specialists for ideas on how to upgrade a place for 2024 that is fresh and modern. Here’s what they informed us they expect in the coming year.

These are the top home improvement trend predictions for 2024.

Mud-Laundry Rooms

Few places combine as well as a laundry room and a mudroom, particularly when family members track dirt into the house. This configuration is becoming increasingly popular, particularly among families with sports-playing children, but also for dirty boots, sand-covered swimsuits and beach towels. There are several methods to make the combo space more functional. A utility sink is ideal for soaking dirty clothes or delicates, and a pull-down faucet is ideal for rinsing muddy shoes. A bench also makes it easier to remove shoes and boots, while cupboards, hooks and cubbies provide useful storage alternatives.

Smart Home Integrations

Even if you have no intention of selling your home, including smart technology is a terrific way to enhance it next year. Smart switches and outlets can improve convenience, increase energy efficiency and allow you to manage your house from a mobile app. Aside from lights, it would help if you considered installing or incorporating a smart thermostat into your HVAC system.

Handmade Features

Custom features and personalized accents first gained prominence at European design events, but this trend is now visible in the most popular Houzz photographs from the United States. So, what exactly is this design trend? Handmade tiles, custom bathroom vanities and other bespoke pieces give the homeowner the impression that they have something genuinely unique. Homeowners are also personalizing their spaces with bespoke lighting, unique window treatments, architectural detailing and handcrafted rugs. People are tired of having the same thing as everyone else, and there is value in having a one-of-a-kind space.

Sustainability

People are ready and prepared to make their homes as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible in the year ahead, as we’ve seen with many other design ideas for 2024. Low-flow fixtures, water-efficient appliances and tankless water heaters are among the most popular options to lessen your environmental footprint and focus on eco-conscious renovation projects.

Blending Backsplashes

Kitchen tile backsplashes have long been popular. Designers, on the other hand, are visually breaking up large swaths of tile. Some designers are now adding a stone or quartz slab behind the range or cooktop while leaving the surrounding backsplash tiled. The slab is frequently made of the same material as the countertops. This creates a remarkable focal point in the kitchen by displaying graphic veining or other fascinating elements vertically. In 2024, blending backsplashes will be popular. You can also expect the accent material, whether tile or not, to be used in other kitchen areas. Accent tile will be used in wine bars, dry bars and even the backs of glass door cabinets.

Multi-Functional Spaces

While open-plan layouts remain a contentious architectural concept, Petranick expects multi-functional rooms will be around in 2024. Homeowners are looking for multifunctional rooms such as home offices, gyms, and entertainment zones. If the prospect of a playroom-slash-office sends shivers down your spine, this renovation idea may be applied to any space in your home that can serve many purposes. Using the area beneath the stairs to provide more storage without increasing your footprint is a terrific idea. Hallways and mudrooms can also be updated and customized to provide more storage space.

Color Drenching

Adding a coat of paint is an excellent, low-cost project. People will begin to go all-in on their preferred colors in 2024. Color drenching is the act of utilizing a single color in every element of a room. Color can make a tiny place like a powder room stand out, while going all-out in a larger space can assist in making it feel homier. For a tranquil impression, use sage green or ocean blue, dark green for a moodier appearance or earthy terracotta for a gorgeous classic. Just remember to constantly test your color of choice on multiple walls and in varied lighting situations.

The best part is that color drenching is a makeover trend that you may do even if you are a tenant. You may have to spend some time painting everything back to white at the end of your lease, but I’ve always believed in personalizing your place, and this is a terrific way to do it.

Warm Neutrals

There is already a shift away from stark whites and icy grays and toward warmer neutrals like beiges, rich browns, creamy off-whites, and others. We predicted this infusion in the kitchen first, but the look is now dominating throughout the home to provide a quieter, more welcoming setting. To create a more layered design that gives a room seasonal variety, we recommend integrating diverse tones, textures and patterns. Although cooler tones have passed their prime, the color palette will remain light and cheerful. However, stepping into the space will feel like a warm hug since these warm neutrals produce a cozy sensation, and cuddly is in for 2024. Especially if you’re attempting to replicate a deluxe hotel suite at home.

Outdoor Living Rooms

Beautiful outdoor spaces have taken off in recent years and will continue to do so till 2024. This includes patios, decks and landscaping, and now is an excellent time to plan which areas require improvement. While the chilly weather may make it difficult to conduct any actual work outside, you can establish a list of what needs to be done. It is preferred to stain decks rather than paint them, especially if you appreciate the look of flaking paint. If you want to improve your landscaping, mulch or gravel are fantastic options, or consider adding container plants to your porch.

Timeless Style

There’s a reason it’s considered a ”timeless” style. While some styles come and go, others endure. Many homeowners continue to prefer more classic elements and materials that create a timeless style. Even in contemporary homes, homeowners desire the peaceful luxury produced by brick, handmade clay tiles, arches and rustic wood accents. In fact, choosing a timeless style is one of the simplest methods to ensure the lifespan of a makeover. Many clients want their investment to last a lifetime, and including timeless themes is an excellent way to accomplish this. However, incorporate useful components into this quiet luxury style. A kitchen may appear ageless on the surface, but rollouts, hidden power outlets, updated lighting, sustainable features and high-performance materials are making these rooms better than ever.
