  • Business Insider asked interior designers what kitchen trends we can expect in 2024.
  • Butlers’ pantries, brass finishes and decorative tiles are gaining popularity.
  • Open shelving, industrial touches, and oversized lighting fixtures are going out of style.

Business Insider asked interior designers which kitchen trends will be popular next year and which will be out of style.

Here’s what they said.

The popularity of Butler stores will rise.

Elizabeth Vergara, owner and principal designer of Vergara Homesexpects butlers’ pantries to see increasing popularity for people who want their homes to feel luxurious.

A butler’s pantry is often built to the side of the kitchen, which is a full-service pantry.

“The butler’s pantries are equipped to house china and even host a wet bar, embodying luxurious living at the heart of the home,” Vergara said.

Quartz will continue to have its moment.

According to Danielle Perdue, interior designer and founder DK HomeQuartz has become a very popular kitchen material in recent years and will remain at the top of the list in 2024.

“It’s just like marble but more durable and less maintenance,” Perdue said. “That will continue to be the deck of choice in my opinion.”

From faucets to lighting fixtures, copper finishes are a popular choice in kitchens, and Perdue expects this trend to continue.

Polished and satin brass are two of the most popular choices at the moment, and both add “warmth and energy” to a space, she told BI.

There are warm painted and stained cabinets.

“Although we’re still doing some all-white kitchens, I’m seeing a trend toward a mix of painted and stained cabinets. Warm woods and warm, saturated paint colors paired with warm neutrals make cozy combinations,” Bell told BI.

Slim shaker cabinets are coming.

Verruto said we’ll soon see more slimline cabinets, which have thinner frames and panels than standard ones. She was also praised for its timeless design.

“The Skinny Shaker is an ideal choice for those looking for something clean, sophisticated and modern, and it also works in more transitional spaces,” Verruto told BI.

On the other hand, open shelves are still on the way out.

Although open shelving, especially in key rooms like kitchens, can make a space appear larger, Vergara told BI it’s not a practical solution and is fading.

“As much as we love the look, it’s not an easy-to-maintain or practical option for most families — especially those with small spaces or kids,” the designer said.

Instead, she said people are leaning toward hidden storage with traditional cabinets.

Industrial style accents fade.

Industrial kitchens feature exposed elements, open spaces, and simple decor to emphasize form and function. But, according to Smith, this style of cuisine is not so trendy anymore.

“The industrial look, characterized by exposed pipes and materials, is waning in popularity. Instead, a warmer, more inviting aesthetic is emerging in kitchens,” Smith told BI.

Large and bulky lighting fixtures are no longer as trendy as they used to be.

FLOOR360 interior designer Courtney Wollersheim Expect to see fewer large-scale lighting fixtures next year.

Instead, people will choose warmer lighting in different places throughout the kitchen.

“Single overhead fixtures by themselves do not provide the warm glow that layered, indirect lighting such as under-cabinet LEDs and strategically placed sconces can add to a space,” Wollersheim said.
