2024 Kitchen Trends

A recent survey of U.S. homeowners by Houzz reveals that open plans are in, tech is trending, and islands are for entertaining

The recently released 2024 U.S. Kitchen Trends Study from home remodeling and design platform Houzz surveyed more than 3,400 U.S. consumers during July 2023 to find out about their kitchen renovation goals and preferences. While the study focused on home renovation, insights from the survey should also interest new-home builders.

Among the findings, Houzz discovered more homeowners are designing with longevity in mind, which makes sense given the growing aging population in the U.S., and open-concept kitchens are making a comeback.

Other notable trends from the study include:

Bigger islands: More than 2 in 5 homeowners opt for islands that are 7 feet or longer (42%), which has increased by 10 points since 2020. Islands that are less than 6 feet long are losing popularity, down 5 points year over year. This may coincide with homeowners’ reported usage of islands for entertaining and socializing post-renovation (54% and 44%, respectively). 

High-tech appliances: More homeowners prefer to replace all appliances during a renovation (54%), rather than just a few (34%). Homeowners are increasingly opting for appliances with high-tech capabilities, showing a 5-point increase to 44%. Nearly a third of homeowners now choose appliances with Wi-Fi connectivity (30%) and some prefer those controllable via smartphones and tablets (29%), both figures rising by 5 percentage points. Interest in features like touch-screen displays, smart-home connectivity, and built-in apps and cameras has also grown compared to last year.
