Top 13 Interior Design Trends In 2024

First, let’s talk about metals and finishes! This can be metals in finish hardware like           knobs and pulls, lighting fixtures, and plumbing hardware.


  1.  Brass Accents

In 2024, it is expected that brass accents will continue to rise in popularity. Brass gives off a timeless and classic appeal that creates a feel of sophistication in both modern and traditional spaces making it a very versatile choice. Brass accents also generate an appealing contrast when used with wood and marble.


  1.  Mixed Finishes

For many years the trend has been to use only one type of finish throughout a home. But this concept has passed. Interior design trends in 2024 show us this is simply not true. Many homeowners are choosing to mix metal finishes. Metals are selected based on the feel of the room trying to be achieved rather than making everything match. Chrome, steel, and aluminum are suddenly everywhere. Many prefer the richness of a brushed finish, giving their space a more luxurious look and feel.

Time to light up our space! Lighting design trends are fun to follow. A lighting fixture change can really change the look and feel of a space.


3.  Bold Lighting

There has been a huge push of new and exciting lighting trends in 2024. Think BIG for lighting fixtures especially above dining tables and in entry ways. When it comes to can lights and lighting used to illuminate an art wall or statement pieces, the trend has switched to the use of smaller size options. Regarding color and finishes, silver and chrome are making a comeback, edging out black matte which has been the go-to for many years. All of these changes allow a client to use their imagination and show their personality when making lighting choices.


4.  Organic Lighting

Lighting design trends in 2024 include organic lighting options. Fixtures that use natural materials have gained in popularity. Organic lighting fixtures usually add great texture and therefore depth to a space, and when coupled with lighting hardware, the softness of the glow can create a wonderfully, soothing environment.

5.  Woodgrain Millwork

In 2024, more and more clients want to show off their wood millwork. Rich woods like walnut, maple, and mahogany are what clients are choosing again and again. Wainscotting is also making a comeback. Both of these options provide classic elegance to a home. We at Zieba Builders specialize in remodeling Historic Homes and have the wonderful pleasure of working on a lot of craftsman style woodwork.

Unexpected layouts, and unique tiles with a dramatic look add a sense of absolute magnificence and personality to a kitchen or bathroom. Using an accent tile or statement tile can be utilized in a shower, on the walls, as a backsplash, or even as flooring. So many possibilities to let your creativity flow.


9.  Maximalist Design

In 2024, the days of minimalism have passed for some. People are really embracing making their homes feel like a sanctuary that is filled with their favorite treasures and looks. Personality and uniqueness are key for a lot of people as they embrace creating their own style in their home. Every design choice speaks volumes about a person’s character and likes.

These delightful touches add playfulness to a space without giving up the sophistication. What a great way to show your personality! Make sure when you are working with larger pieces to also add in smaller accents to give balance to your space.

11.  Historic Contemporary

You read that correctly, historic contemporary. Yes, it is possible to have a home look and feel historic and contemporary at the same time. Both rather than one or the other. Isn’t that exciting? You can have a classic look with a fresh, updated twist. Now clients with timeless homes can embrace having a contemporary, functional living experience without giving up the historic feel they value so much.


12.  Separate Dining Areas

For quite a few years now, most clients have wanted to open up their living space and give it a great room kind of feeling. But the open-concept living is becoming less desirable. People want more intimate spaces and separation; this includes dining rooms. In 2024, clients are in favor of blocking direct access to their busy and sometimes messy kitchen, allowing them to create a beautiful, elegantly designed dining space to enjoy with family and friends. This is reminiscent of the nostalgic dining experiences of the past.


13.  Inspired by Nature

Designs inspired by nature are one of the top interior design trends in 2024. Many clients love the idea of bringing the outside in. This nature inspired designing includes using Earthy tones, beautiful greenery, and eco-friendly materials to create a harmonic living space. Our well-being is top of mind these days so if we can improve and enhance our connection with nature we will undoubtedly feel more at ease. Many of us also feel a call to live more sustainably which is thankfully gaining popularity as well. Including nature inspired designs also enhances a sense of responsibility to our environment and our planet. So, it is win-win!


In closing, authenticity, character, and personality are becoming an important part of interior design – and will stick around beyond the top interior design trends in 2024. Finally, clients feel free to express themselves as individuals rather than going along with a narrow-minded set of trends. This is obvious when reading all the top interior design trends in 2024 because there is something for everyone. A design style that will surely appeal to any client.
