In with the new, out with the old! A new year brings new trends, innovations, and ideas all related to your home. Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, so why not show it some love this year by making a change. Check out these kitchen design ideas to welcome in 2024.
Improve Kitchen Storage
Kitchen’s design works well when you have access to everything in an arms reach. Without ample storage, you may find yourself storing bulkier appliances in the basement, or at the back of your pantry. If this is the case, consider optimizing your storage in your kitchen this year. This can include taking out your old cabinets and replacing them with wall to ceiling units, updating your drawers with built in storage dividers, and maybe even adding a walk-in pantry.

Add an Island
Not only are islands great for extending your storage space beyond your kitchen cabinets, but they also offer more seating options, more countertop space, and they can act as the centerpiece of your kitchen. Islands are becoming bigger and better with each year – from building appliances, like sinks and dishwashers, directly into them, and adding more comfortable seating arrangements which makes them great for entertaining guests. If you’re looking for any of the above, an island just might be the answer. Get connected with a Pro to discuss your kitchen redesign today.
Another kitchen trend that homeowners kitchens will be seeing a lot of this year is groutless backsplash. Homeowners are moving away from the traditional tiled backsplash towards a more modern slab backsplash. A solid backsplash appears more luxurious to the eye, plus there are no grout lines to clean! Talk with a Pro today about swapping out your tiles for one solid piece!
Stainless Steel Appliances
As we saw a shift away from stainless steel appliances, they are making a comeback. This is not so surprising as stainless steel has a long life-time due to its durability, especially in the kitchen. If your current appliances are chipped or worn for worse, consider updating them with a stainless steel appliance that is sure to add a timeless addition to the space.
