In 2024, several home design trends have gained popularity, reflecting a blend of functionality, sustainability, and aesthetics. Here are some trends you might notice:

Biophilic Design

One big trend we’re seeing is bringing nature into your home through biophilic design. This type of design blurs the lines between the indoors and outdoors, using elements like indoor gardens, living walls, or natural materials like wood and stone. Other effective ways to lean into this trend include maximizing natural light where possible and incorporating more plants into your interior spaces.  

Outdoor Living Spaces

Homeowners are also spending more time outdoors, so there’s a growing interest in creating inviting outdoor living spaces. This includes designing functional and comfortable patios, decks, and garden areas equipped with amenities like outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and cozy seating areas. 

Sustainable Materials

Eco-conscious homeowners are increasingly turning to sustainable materials like bamboo, rattan, recycled wood, and reclaimed materials, alongside low-VOC paints. Not only do these choices minimize environmental impact, but they also help reduce waste and conserve energy, making them sought-after options in today’s design landscape. 

Textured Walls

Creating more engaging spaces is a major focus this year, and textured walls play a key role in achieving this goal. By adding depth and visual interest, textured walls break up the monotony of flat surfaces, injecting a sense of dimension into the room. Whether it’s through Venetian plaster or textured wallpaper, this dynamic element can transform your space, making it more visually stimulating and inviting for everyone who enters. 

“Grandmillenial” Style

Another trend gaining traction among homeowners is Grandmillennial style, which combines traditional and modern elements to evoke nostalgia while maintaining comfort and coziness. This style involves mixing vintage decor, floral prints, antique furniture, and classic patterns with contemporary pieces and bold colors to achieve a fresh and eclectic aesthetic.
