The Top Remodeling Trends for 2024

From 2025 to 2027, the industry for home improvement is expected to grow by an average of 4.1%.

After all, we all deserve something to make our daily routines more comfortable and functional. Design-build remodeling firms are well-equipped to remodel any and every part of your home with top remodeling trends for 2024 to suit any style and vision.

Make Your Space a Work-from-Home Sanctuary

Since more people are working remotely, at least some of the time, there is an increased demand for live-to-work space renovations. We love to transform bedrooms, basements, and bonus spaces into stylish offices. Others build an addition to create their home office space from the ground up.

Focus on creating a functional office space using built-in furniture that can be used for work or hidden when desired. Sound insulation is a big part of creating a work-from-home sanctuary. A design-build remodeling team will construct a unique working area to maximize your motivation, concentration, and productivity. Discuss all of your options, including location, layout, colors, and furniture.

Give Old Rooms New Life

Today, maximizing space is a top priority. Recreational and entertainment room renovations are on the rise. Many homeowners are looking for design opportunities that give old rooms new life.

Extend Design-Build Remodeling from the Indoors to the Outdoors

The trend of extending your indoor living space into the outdoors is gaining momentum in 2024. Designs for indoor-outdoor living spaces should have a natural flow from the interior into a newly remodeled outdoor living space with a cohesive design language. This calls for features such as folding glass doors or large sliding glass doors, drop-down screens, outdoor fireplaces, and heating lamps. The goal is to create an inviting space that extends relaxation even during cooler months.

Create Separate Homes Under One Roof

It’s time to make room for multi-generational households. A major 2024 trend is creating two homes beneath the same roof with an auxiliary dwelling unit (ADU), sometimes called an in-law suite. If you want to create personalized space for more family members like aging relatives, loved ones with disabilities, or young adults, consider building this space in your home.

Escape into Your Own Private Bathroom Oasis

Would you like to be able to escape into your very own private bathroom oasis? Are you lacking in quiet alone time? Spa-bathroom design is one of the latest trends in bathroom remodeling this year. You can renovate a spare bathroom or renovate your master bathroom to become the stress-reducing cacoon you have always wanted.

Indulge in aromatherapy showerheads, integrated heated floors, and bathtub fillers that hold a glass of wine while you soak in the warmth.

Kitchen Remodel Trends: Backsplashes and Cabinets

The kitchen is the epicenter of some exciting trends this year. New backsplash trends are moving away from traditional designs and embracing bold, artistic patterns and textures. Think large-format tiles or unexpected materials that make a statement. In line with the latest kitchen cabinet trends, there is a shift towards mixed materials and finishes, with many opting for a combination of wood tones and painted finishes. Custom cabinetry is being designed not just for storage but as an integral part of the kitchen’s overall design aesthetic, often featuring unique hardware and innovative organizational solutions.

Flooring and Lighting Trends in Home Remodeling

Flooring trends in 2024 are all about durability and style. We're seeing a rise in the use of eco-friendly materials that are both sustainable and stylish. Trends in tile flooring are skewing towards larger, more dramatic tiles with fewer grout lines, offering a cleaner, more continuous look. As for lighting, remodeling with recessed lighting continues to be a popular choice for its sleek and unobtrusive appearance. However, pendant lighting trends are also making a mark, with homeowners choosing bold and decorative pieces as focal points in kitchens and dining areas.

Custom Built-Ins and Entertainment Centers

Custom built-in entertainment centers are becoming a focal point in many living rooms. These are less about housing your TV and media equipment and more about offering stylish and functional pieces of furniture that enhance the overall aesthetic of the room. They offer tailored storage solutions, hide unsightly wires and cables, and can even be designed to showcase decorative items and personal collections.
