2024 is well underway and with the new year comes a new set of wave-making design trends. If you’ve been looking for a way to refresh your space or are ready to build your own custom home, incorporating some of these trends are a sure-fire way to level up your design game and create a home that’s bound to impress.
In a nutshell, 2024 is all about creating a space that works harmoniously with the environment while still exuding a quiet, luxurious vibe. Think plenty of lush plants, cosy wellness nooks that promote a Zen-style of living, vibrant colours and a deeper connection to nature through outdoor living and sustainable design.
1. Quiet luxury
This TikTok trend has taken root in interior design for 2024 by combining hotel-like aesthetics with a cosy, residential base. Think comfy and lived-in furniture of a high quality, bold wallpaper, feature stone and statement artwork. The first steps to achieving quiet luxury is intentional purchases: source pieces that are unique, high quality and built to last. The essence of quiet luxury lies in the artful balance between sophistication and comfort.
2. Wellness spaces
In 2024, wellness spaces are stealing the spotlight. It can be as easy as designing rooms to promote mindfulness, like a meditation room that’s flooded with natural light, a reading nook complete with built-in bookshelves and a plush armchair, or a calming work-from-home station with soundproofing and green plants to encourage productivity. These spaces prioritize mindfulness, relaxation, and productivity, reflecting a conscious effort to enhance the overall well-being of occupants.
3. Outdoor living
It’s no secret that being in the great outdoors does wonders for our wellbeing. Expect spacious terraces that flow seamlessly from lounges via vast, glass sliding doors, open-air dining areas, outdoor entertainment spaces with firepits and rooftop terraces, all which promote a deeper connection to nature.
4. Smarter homes
Everything is smarter in 2024, including your home. From automatic lighting to temperature control via an app and voice-activated smart assistants like Google, Alexa and Siri, smart homes mean more convenience, security and energy efficiency. An added bonus is the cost-saving benefits; you can easily track your energy usage as it’s all in the one place.
5. Sustainable design
Looking to tread lighter on the environment in 2024? Sustainable design may be kicking off in 2024, but we believe it’s a trend that’s here to stay. By including elements like solar panels, rainwater tanks, energy-saving appliances and natural ventilation, you can reduce your home’s carbon footprint, while setting yourself up for success in the future.
6. Bold colours
Neutrals are out, bright and dynamic colours are in. Life’s too short to stay in the beige lane and 2024 is reclaiming the power of colours. Expect to see vibrant kitchen splashbacks, rooms that play with two-toned hues, unapologetically bold sofas or statement pieces, and neutrals reimagined into dark and romantic shades of chocolate.
7. Vintage Revival
Nostalgia takes centre stage as vintage aesthetics make a comeback in 2024. Homeowners are incorporating retro elements, such as mid-century modern furniture, vintage-inspired wallpaper, and classic design motifs. The blend of old and new creates a timeless and eclectic atmosphere, allowing individuals to infuse their spaces with a sense of history. Thrifted and upcycled items are gaining popularity, contributing to both sustainability and the creation of curated, unique interiors.At Ramsay Builders, our team have a great eye for emerging and timeless design trends that are guaranteed to elevate your home. It’s why we incorporate these into the design of the custom homes we build. Get in touch today.
