5 top kitchen trends for 2024
Creating beautiful bespoke kitchens that reflect you and your home is what drives us at Roundhouse. Our signature style mixes luxury modern kitchen design with timeless elegance, to create a space you’ll adore for years to come. But keeping up with the latest kitchen trends is always on our radar. So read on for five of our favourite 2024 trends for upmarket kitchen designs in the know…
Quiet luxury has been a byword for interiors over the past 12 months. And it’s a trend that’s going nowhere fast according to the design zeitgeist. Translating the look for luxury designer kitchens is a joy. Think expertly crafted bespoke kitchen cabinets in a palette of soft, sophisticated neutrals. Fall in love all over again with shades of putty, sand and stone – even dare we say a soft buttercup yellow. And this time around, deeper, earthy neutrals like buff, terracotta and camel are a fabulous colour story for luxury contemporary kitchens everywhere.
Pared back metallics
For a while now, we’ve taken a shine to the metallic kitchen. Indeed, warmer metals like gold, copper and brass have given bespoke designer kitchens a real Midas touch. Expect more of this luxe touch for 2024 but less bling and more burnished. A weathered bronze kitchen splashback for example looks spectacular with charcoal paintwork. You might wish to replace shiny modern brass taps with an unlacquered finish and watch the gorgeous, aged patina grow. Elevate your kitchen design with distressed gold frames or sleek, recessed handles in antique bronze. Then, watch it glow…
Cabinets to the ceiling
We can never have enough kitchen cupboard storage, right? So, stretching bespoke kitchen cabinets all the way up to the top of the ceiling creates extra space for your stuff. It’s a design trend we’re seeing more often – and not just in smaller bespoke designer kitchens. Extending kitchen cupboards upwards also instils a more luxurious and architectural mood. And of course, you’ll banish any hard-to-reach dust traps. Just be mindful of what you store up top. Less frequently used items and seasonal kitchen kit are your best bet.
Eat in kitchens
Eating in the kitchen is nothing new. But the myriad of different ways that we are dining, drinking and socialising in our luxury contemporary kitchens is. Large kitchen dining room ideas can max out with a freestanding table and chairs or a modern kitchen island with seating – or both. Smaller spaces don’t need to miss out either. Utilise a corner with bench seating or a built-in booth. Beautiful bespoke kitchens from Roundhouse can tailor every last design whim and create solutions for your eat in kitchen. Let us show you how.
Natural marbles like Carrara, Arabescato and Pietra Grey are chic must-haves for luxury designer kitchens. And long may this continue. In 2024 we’re set to see bolder marbles taking the surface spotlight too. Design tastes are certainly going up a notch as dramatic swirling stones and striking colour flecks upgrade a modern kitchen island into a serious design statement. Harness statement patterns in black and white to create a unique luxury marble kitchen. Or else earthy streaks of russet and bronze. Work surfaces just got epic.
Are white kitchens out for 2024?
Classic white kitchens will never go out of fashion. In fact, a white marble kitchen or grey and white design is unflinchingly elegant for bespoke kitchens. However, you might want to tweak the colour palette and try out porcelain, linen or almond milk for a softer take on pure white. Pair with natural materials and layered lighting and discover a laid-back luxury for the heart of your home.
