Interior design trends for 2024

With a new year come new plans and goals, and many of us have home renovations on the agenda for 2024. Whether you’re starting a home building project from scratch, investing money in a major renovation or just doing a simple refresh, these are some of the trends that interior designers are talking about for 2024:

Pantone of the year 2024: Peach Fuzz

Colour Change

The Colour of the Year 2024, courtesy of the colour-matching system and trend forecaster, Pantone, is Peach Fuzz. The New Jersey-based Pantone Colour Institute researches global fashion and travel trends, new technologies and materials, and nominates a new colour every year. The colour is intended to capture the current global mood. In this case, the mood is “compassionate and nurturing, heartfelt … We are living in a time of turmoil and covet the feeling of being wrapped in softness.”. This peachy colour complements natural timber furniture and the earthy terracotta and khaki palette, and the hint of gold speaks of warmth, cosiness and comfort. Perhaps not the right colour as a theme throughout the house, but fun as a pop of colour in the downstairs cloakroom.


More is More

Less will no longer be more in the coming year and 2024 will see a push towards more layered spaces full of colour and pattern. More will be more, with curves in the form of arched doorways, and rounded windows, all of which create character and add softness to a space. To complement the lived-in feel, vintage buys will add character and depth to your space.


Timeless Style

While other trends may come and go, some are enduring.  In every style of home, from period to modern, homeowners want brick, handmade clay tiles and rustic wood elements. Opting for a timeless style is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your investment stands the rest of time.


Herringbone Everywhere

The angular shape of herringbone is a classic and sophisticated design element that is experiencing a renaissance. It’s becoming the go-to pattern for kitchens and bathrooms and the typically horizontal zigs are also being laid diagonally and vertically to create an updated look.


Mud-Laundry Rooms

Few spaces combine as well as a laundry room and a mudroom and this setup is growing in popularity, especially among families with children. The space can be made even more functional by adding a bench for making it easy to take off and store shoes and boots. Cabinets, hooks, and cubbies provide practical storage solutions.


Appliance Garages

This is another term for a kitchen unit that is designed for all of those work surface appliances that you use regularly but which you might not necessarily want on show. Bulky blenders, coffee makers and toasters can be neatly concealed, while keeping them easily accessible and organized. Appliance garages have been around for years, but they’re experiencing a resurgence in popularity by homeowners who want a more decluttered look whilst incorporating more gadgets into their kitchens. Appliance garages also include power outlets, so appliances don’t have to move far to be used.


Built to Last

Designs that are sustainable have always been on trend, but even more so in 2024 as we all do our best to buy more consciously. This year will also see a steady increase in furniture restoration, playing into the wider interest in shopping second hand, and extending the life of items in our home.
