Now that winter is well and truly here, it’s the perfect time to start planning your brand new kitchen for 2024. We all know that buying a new kitchen takes time and money but it’s an investment that will bring you so much joy as well as adding value to your home. If you want to get a heads-up on the styles, finishes and colours that are set to be big news for 2024, keep reading, as we have the inside scoop with our top 9 predictions for 2024’s kitchen trends…..
1 Dare to be bold with red accents
A great way to add statement style to the kitchen, red palettes are set to be hugely popular for painted cabinetry in 2024. Our new Carmine Red looks stunning on traditional in-frame Shaker furniture while our new Merlot Red gives slab-style doors a sleek, eye-catching look. Team with creams and off-whites for a period home or greys and timber accents for a more contemporary décor.

2 Add texture with reeded finishes
This year saw reeded doors and screens becoming highly sought after, especially in bathrooms, and 2024 sees this trend taking centre stage in kitchens too. A vertical reeded pattern adds textural detail, elevating the kitchen into a design-led space, as seen in our Costina Fresca and Noce finishes. Mix with neutral decors for a soft feel, choose darker palettes for a dramatic look or incorporate this trend with our new ribbed black glazed doors for a more industrial vibe, which can be used as feature units to break up a block of colour while partially concealing contents inside.

3 Embrace tactile textures with Dark Walnut and Dark Stone
Speaking of textural detail, tactile surfaces are key for 2024’s kitchens. Adding depth and interest to any space, texture is easy to achieve with your choice of cabinet doors, worksurfaces, splashbacks, handles, flooring and walls. Our timber effects bring a luxe look to the home with our Dark Walnut for an intense look or Dark Stone for a velvety finish.
4 Choose eco-friendly sustainable materials
Many of us now actively seek out sustainable materials as well as eco-friendly companies who use conscious methods of manufacture, production and delivery. Here at Symphony, we strive to make our kitchens as sustainably as possible, so all our timber-based products are FSC® certified, sourced from well-managed sustainable forests. Many of our collections include recycled content and some doors are made from 100% recycled board. Others use foil surfaces made from recycled plastic bottles. We have also launched our new Ocean handles made using recycled plastic such as fishing nets from the maritime industry and all our 22 Paint to Order colours are water based.
5 Create instant impact with bold blues
Blue is a shade that has seen many fluctuations for kitchens and 2024 is all about making impact while still creating a sense of calm. Our new colours, Storm Blue and Alby Blue, are perfect for a tranquil space that packs a punch and both look stunning with marble surfaces and sleek black appliances. We also have Indigo Blue and Midnight Blue, popular for traditional and contemporary designs, as well as Providence Blue for a blue-grey tone.

6 Bring the outside in with green
Popular due to the biophilic trend for interiors, where we seek to bring elements of nature inside the home, green is certainly an evergreen trend and one that’s here to stay for 2024. It’s a versatile palette that works well in all styles of kitchen, with lighter shades such as our Atlantic Green and our new Fern Green as a neutral alternative and darker hues of Bottle Green and our new Hunter Green for a statement look.

7 Use new neutrals as a versatile base colour
Everyone loves a neutral, especially when it comes to quick and easy updates over the seasons and years to come. Our extensive palette includes warm tones of Platinum, Mineral and Harbour Grey – our new neutrals to complement our Langdale, Melrose and Harvard kitchen ranges. Easy to add to an existing décor or update with accessories, textiles and small appliances when the mood takes.

8 Get the luxe look with metallic handles
Handles are the jewellery of the kitchen so take time to consider these finishing touches with chrome, bronze and brass designs in brushed or polished finishes. Our new Banbury handles are ergonomic and eye-catching, enhancing cabinetry doors with their elegant design.
9 Stylish utilities and boot rooms
It’s all too easy to consider the utility room a purely functional space but this hardworking hub of the kitchen can become a stylish room in its own right with matching or contrasting cabinetry, worksurfaces and décor. Add the very latest washing and drying appliances and this once-humble area becomes the epitome of utility chic. And don’t forget to add an easy-clean and practical boot room too for the ultimate practical pre-kitchen zone.
