As we step into 2024, the world of interior design is evolving, bringing forth exciting trends that redefine the aesthetics of our living spaces. At Parker Bathrooms & Kitchens, we're thrilled to share with you the top trends that will shape the look and feel of kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms this year.
Pantone Colour of the Year 2024: Peach Fuzz Pantone's choice for 2024, Peach Fuzz (PANTONE 13-1023), is a velvety gentle peach tone that captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. This warm and modern shade effortlessly enriches the mind, body, and soul, making it a perfect choice for a soothing and welcoming atmosphere in your home.
Silver Resurgence: Silver tones are making a grand comeback, reclaiming their place in kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Cool stainless steel, aluminium, chrome, and nickel are gaining popularity, offering a chic and contemporary vibe. From brassware to furniture handles and lighting, silver adds a touch of elegance.
Arches: Timeless Elegance Arches continue to dominate interior design, bringing a touch of old-world charm to spaces. Arches remain in trend due to their timeless appeal and versatility. Whether classic, contemporary, or minimalist, arches add architectural interest and sophistication, serving as focal points that draw the eye and enhance visual interest.
Brown as a Statement Colour: Brown emerges as a statement colour in 2024, with warm and rich tones making a comeback. From chocolate hues to caramel and persimmon, brown adds a layer of warmth and richness, serving as a versatile neutral to layer with other colours. Interior designers predict an upswing in beige and brown, offering a mood-shifting palette for a comfortable and calming atmosphere.
Terra-Cotta Resurgence: Terra-cotta makes a strong comeback in 2024, with designers exploring sculptural opportunities and a variety of colours. From glazed terra-cotta tiles to natural shades of ocher, this material finds its place in various design styles, from Italianate and Spanish to Art Deco and Arts and Crafts.
Bold and Bright Kitchens: Dare to be fearless with kitchen colour schemes in 2024! Burgundy reds, crisp teals, and emerald greens take centre stage, creating a sense of luxury and depth. The trend extends to cabinetry and walls, with jewel-like tones infusing kitchens with a timeless yet vibrant atmosphere.
Fluted Detail: The buzzword of 2023, texture, extends its influence into 2024 with fluted details taking the spotlight. Fluted wooden cabinetry in rich timber tones adds depth to rooms, especially popular in wall-hung pieces for space efficiency. The trend extends to glass details like shower screens and accessories, providing an understated luxe touch reminiscent of the Art Deco period.
Vertical Tile Stacking: Say goodbye to uniform white squares as vertical tile stacking takes over. Originating from the New York subway tile, this technique uses short, slim tiles, with bonus points for adding texture with Zellige tiles from Morocco. Hand-shaped and fired with glaze, Zellige tiles bring rich depth, texture, and character to any room.
Warm and Textural Kitchens: The appreciation for wabi-sabi and the celebration of natural materials influence kitchens in 2024. Layering stone and marble creates a visually striking look full of colour, texture, and irregularity. Warm and earthy tones like ochre and peach dominate walls, embracing a sensory and immersive experience in our homes.
Decorative Wall Lights: In 2024, wall lights take centre stage, becoming sculptural, scene-stealing pieces that elevate the ambiance of any space. Whether in the kitchen or bathroom, these wall lights hang a little lower than expected, adding a touch of stellar beauty. Wall lighting gives your space an even glow, rather than relying on just ceiling lighting which can cast heavy shadows by itself.
At Parker Bathrooms & Kitchens, we invite you to embrace these trends and transform your living spaces into havens of style and comfort. From warm tones to sculptural lighting, 2024 promises a diverse palette of options for creating spaces that truly reflect your personality and lifestyle. Stay ahead of the curve and make your home a testament to contemporary design trends.
