Looking ahead: Kitchen trends you’ll see in everywhere 2024
As we kick into the new year, the interior design world is preparing for the slew of kitchen trends that are set to take 2024 by storm. If you’re looking to give your kitchen a design overhaul or need some renovation inspiration, then read on to discover four new kitchen trends that we’re excited to see in the year ahead as we say farewell to 2023.
Sustainable kitchen design is a popular trend that’s here to stay. To embrace sustainability in your kitchen design, make the most of natural light by including skylights or more windows. And if you’re building a kitchen from the ground up or renovating your existing one, then opt for materials that are recycled where you can. For example, using recycled timber for kitchen cabinetry or upcycling a timber benchtop into a new dining table.
For your appliances, ensure that they have a high energy and water star rating. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient and water-savvy your kitchen will be, which can help reduce your environmental impact. NEFF’s collection of integrated, semi-integrated and built-under dishwashers all have a 4-star energy and 5-star water rating. These dishwashers also have an innovative AquaStop® system, which will automatically stop any leaks by closing the safety valve next to the tap and prevent your dishwasher from using excess water.
Warm tones with cool accents
Creating a positive and peaceful atmosphere in one of the most used spaces in the home (your kitchen) is a must this year. A recent colour trend report shows that we’ll be seeing soft and muted warm tones, such as pastel yellows and earthy browns, with pops of pale blue and touches of olive green in kitchens this year.
The three colour palettes within this report – ‘solstice’, ‘journey’ and ‘muse’ – can suit an array of kitchen styles. A Tuscan-inspired kitchen might embrace the warmth and calm of ‘solstice’, while vintage kitchens might lean into the nostalgia of ‘muse’. NEFF’s graphite grey range is an excellent investment for your kitchen, as the timeless graphite colouring will pair perfectly with any kitchen colour scheme.

Practical multi-purpose spaces
The kitchen has evolved from a humble cooking space into a multi-purpose room over the years, and this will continue throughout 2024. Kitchen islands are now a space for food preparation, eating, socialising, studying and working. To achieve a multipurpose kitchen, have built-in appliances to make the room more spacious and opt for quiet appliances and cabinetry.
Installing a NEFF induction cooktop on your kitchen island allows you to both socialise with your family or guest and while cooking all in the one spot. You can also install a NEFF in-built coffee machine or in-built microwave in a nearby wall to free up island and cupboard space for living and entertaining.
Easy to maintain designs
As we all become busier with life, having an easy to use and maintain kitchen is essential. Minimalist kitchens are one such example of a design that is easy to maintain – the style revolves around having the just essentials and keeping things simple. To achieve an uncomplicated kitchen design, consider using heat-tolerant and stain-resistant materials in your kitchen.
One way to keep things nice and simple in the kitchen is having a NEFF Slide&Hide® oven. The retractable door disappears entirely, giving you direct access to your cooking while reducing the danger of drops and spills. Some NEFF ovens come with pyrolytic cleaning functions. This self-cleaning function doesn’t use harsh and toxic chemicals, meaning you can have a squeaky-clean oven without harming the environment.
