For 2024? Less is More.


For all things kitchen and bath, we look to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) to shed light on the hottest trends, latest insights, and so much more. So naturally, as the calendar turns over and ushers in a new year, we trust their trend forecast for what’s hot (or not) in 2024. As we bid farewell to 2023, which was all vibrant hues and awakened spaces, next year, the pendulum swings in the opposite direction. Indeed, 2024 is all about minimalism and understated elegance.

So, how does this translate to kitchen design? Well, there are myriad ways in which you can dial things back while still creating amazing spaces for your clients. Here are just a few ideas to get your creative wheels turning.

Hidden Conveniences 

When it comes to things like outlets and chargers, their mere presence is a bonus. However, if they can be out of sight yet still easily accessible, that’s a design win. Incorporate charging stations that emerge from the counter when needed and retract when not in use, or fashion a drawer with a charging station. Hidden outlets are worth the hype as well. When tucked underneath the cabinets, they’re within reach yet don’t clutter a clean design. Explore the options and incorporate this understated approach into your plans.

Seamless Cooktops 

Induction cooktops (on an island, no less), are one of our top 2024 design trend favorites, which falls perfectly in line with creating a clean, uncluttered look. Take the trend a step further with an invisible induction cooktop. These sleek appliances literally blend right in with the chosen countertop and are only evident when in use. And because it uses induction electricity to directly heat cookware, there is no direct heat, ensuring it’s a safe option for any state-of-the-art kitchen.

Low Maintenance Flooring 

While ceramic tile flooring had its moment in the spotlight, the days of cleaning dingy grout are a thing of the past. Modern homeowners prefer something more low-maintenance. NKBA anticipates materials like luxury vinyl and engineered wood flooring will have their moment in 2024 thanks to their hardiness, durability, and minimal upkeep, all of which make life easier and are perfectly on-trend.

Panel-Ready Appliances 

Panel-ready appliances have long been a coveted and luxurious kitchen design darling, and we anticipate 2024 underscoring the popularity of this choice. Panel-ready refrigerators and wine coolers and even panel-ready dishwashers will take centerstage on homeowners’ wishlists for the mere fact that they help establish one clean look throughout a space. A top choice at Friedman’s Appliances is the panel-ready Cove dishwasher. This state-of-the-art dishwasher features all of the sought-after features discerning homeowners desire, including Wi-Fi capabilities, silent wash, and the promise of a clean load every time. Customers can create a clean and seamless design by incorporating their chosen panel color and material to match their cabinetry and overall design scheme.
