2024 Kitchen Design Trends

We take a look at the kitchen trends we’ll be seeing everywhere in 2024, with insights from industry experts and inspiration from Persimmon homeowners.

As a housebuilder we see home design trends change constantly. Cottagecore, Japandi and Dark Academia have all had their moments in 2023, and there’s been no shortage of inspiration online.

Our kitchens get the most foot traffic of any room in our homes. They’re the places we gather for family meals, embark on culinary adventures and entertain friends. It’s no surprise then, that when it comes to decorating our kitchens there’s a lot at stake. From choosing cabinetry and finishes, to setting the mood with the right lighting, to adding those final perfect accessories, we all want to create a kitchen that feels beautiful and that we can take pride in.

Planning on buying a Persimmon home next year and want to start planning your dream kitchen? Or perhaps you’re looking to upgrade your space and want to stay on-trend with your design choices. Either way, there’s sure to be a kitchen trend mentioned in our guide that will feel like you.

Leading kitchen manufacturers The Symphony Group share their trend predictions for 2024, which you can recreate in your Persimmon home with their range of finishes available as Finishing Touches.

We’ve also taken style inspiration from some of our brilliant Persimmon homeowners, who have brought some current trends to life in their own kitchens.

1. Bold Blues

Blue is the colour that is making waves and we have one to complement every mood! Indigo and Midnight Blue are popular choices for both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs, whilst for those who want a lighter and calmer choice then Providence Blue, Storm Blue or the new Alby Blue are the perfect option.

2. Go to Green

On trend and evergreen in popularity, green is a colour that is proving popular year on year thanks to the biophilic interior design movement, which brings elements of nature indoors. This versatile colour is becoming the chosen hue in both modern and classic kitchens, with the lighter shades offering a new neutral alternative, while darker shades create a statement luxury design.

3. Sustainable materials

The responsibility to make sustainable choice when it comes to our homes includes our décor, and sustainable interior design is continuously on the rise. Reliable and responsible, we strive to manufacture our kitchens as sustainably as we can, so all Symphony’s timber-based products are FSC® certified and sourced from well managed sustainable forests. Many of our ranges include recycled content, with some made from 100% recycled board and others using foil surfaces made from recycled plastic bottles.

4. New Neutrals

Ideal to accessorise and highlight. Trends have moved on from cool greys to new neutrals which have a warmer tone. These neutrals provide great go-to colours and with new additions to Harvard and Princeton, we haven’t stopped introducing new shades of these everlasting colours!

5. Tactile Textures

Simple touches for a grand style. Texture adds depth and interest to the kitchen and can be achieved through décor, work surfaces and handle choice. Timber effect finishes such as Dark Walnut create a subtle finishing touch, or choose the luxe velvet type texture on Dark Stone.

6. Statement pendant lighting

If you want to make a statement in your kitchen without changing the units or finishes, lighting could be the way to go. Statement pendant lights in kitchens have risen in popularity and are set to continue as a trend in 2024. Adding ambiance and style, they look fantastic when hung above an island or breakfast bar, as @thekeyto43 has done.

7. Coffee bars

Recently there’s been a collective leaning towards creating rituals and routines in our homes. From morning bathroom routines to lighting candles each evening, these small and simple rituals can have a positive effect on our wellbeing. It’s no surprise then, more and more people are creating a corner of your kitchen dedicated to making a morning coffee – take a look at the beautiful coffee bar @our_hanbury_hideaway has made.

8. Bold colours

Minimalist and neutral kitchen designs, whether Scandi-inspired or more English country chic, will always be popular, however we’re also loving the growing trend for more colourful kitchens. Especially post-pandemic, there’s a clear love of décor that inspires joy (often called dopamine décor), and this extends to colourful and creative kitchen designs. @poursomecolouronme has brought their kitchen to life with fabulous colour combinations and patterns.

9. Gold handles

While stainless steel remains a classic choice, and black has had its moment in recent years, 2024 will be the year that gold kitchen hardware really shines. From kitchen cupboard handles to taps, gold is increasingly the go-to colour for many choosing their kitchen finishes. We love the way @at.home.with.no30 has paired classic neutral cupboard doors with gleaming gold handles.
