Kitchen Trends in Scottsdale 2024
Time passes. Design trends undergo a continuous evolution. We fondly recall the era of bright orange-fluorescent laminate countertops, which are now a thing of the past. Much like other desired styles, progress unfolds through the introduction of new forms, functions, and materials, ushering in an evolution of tastes. While kitchen design trends tend to change gradually, the impact of these changes can be significant. What does 2024 hold for homeowners in Scottsdale, looking to create the kitchen of their dreams? Imagine warmth, comfort, ease of use, functionality and flexibility.
Earth tones continue to trend upward not only in kitchen design but also in interior design. The 1st Dibbs 2024 Designer Trends Survey found that the largest percentage of the design community named light green/sage as their favorite color for 2024. In kitchen design for Phoenix homeowners, there is a notable trend towards earthy color palettes that give off a warm and inviting ambiance. Hues such as sage green, light browns, and tans are gaining popularity, allowing homeowners in Phoenix to seamlessly blend the outdoor charm with their indoor spaces. This choice of colors brings a touch of nature indoors, creating a cozy and welcoming atmosphere within kitchen environments.
Although we have seen it at some level already, beverage centers are another up and coming trend for homeowners in Arizona. More than 50% of those responding to the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 2024 trends report are looking for smarter beverage storage solutions. We are recommending different beverage center options that include under-counter refrigerators or refrigerated drawers, integrated espresso and coffee makers, ice makers, and wine storage fridges. We often suggest placing a beverage center away from the area primarily used for meal preparation. Instead, many people appreciate a beverage center closer to a seating area or in-kitchen dining table.
TraVek's certified and experienced designers continue to advise homeowners how they can create a dream kitchen that not only looks beautiful and functions very well, but also serves as a center for healthy living. This can be accomplished by using smart appliances that inventory the contents of refrigerators, offer menu suggestions based on contents, and prioritize ingredients that are about to spoil to design features such as refrigerated columns and drawers that provide more flexibility. Steam ovens and air fryers also can contribute to healthier lifestyles.
The primary function of a kitchen never changes. Improving the kitchen’s functionality is a compelling reason to rely on a professional designer. Homeowners can obtain the functionality they expect and deserve in a new dream kitchen by paying particular attention to storage and organizational amenities that keep counters clean and provide a place for everything. The number one regret of people after they have completed a kitchen renovation is not having invested enough in kitchen storage and organization solutions.
Lighting also plays a key role in enhancing kitchen functionality. We are in love with lighting and we are putting it everywhere! In-drawer, under-cabinet, behind cabinet lighting solutions combined with strategically placed task, accent and ambient lighting enhance the look, feel and functionality of a kitchen. For a good example, just walk into our Scottsdale Design Center showroom to see all the places lighting can go!
At this time we are seeing people gravitate away from a predominately white pallet in favor of wood tones that add warmth and texture. The NKBA survey found that wood is the second most popular color among kitchen designers nationwide.
