Designers predict these six trends will influence kitchen designs for years to come.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) kitchen trends report for 2024, dedicated beverage centers will be refreshing kitchens in a big way. More than half of survey respondents are looking to better accommodate beverages, from coffee to wine, beer, juice boxes, or fresh smoothies, with a dedicated area featuring specialized storage and appliances.
Wellness is a theme that’s been prominent in home design since 2020, evident in the surge of spa-like baths and outdoor living areas. Now, the NKBA 2024 trends report notes that more designers and homeowners will be thinking about how the kitchen can act as a place for healthy living. Considering nutrition and healthy eating, kitchen designs will include more flexible refrigeration like columns, drawers, and convertible settings.
