Kitchen Design Trends 2024

Here at Highline Design & Build, we’re proud to offer you practical solutions that can help make your home somewhere that’s better for you and your family to live in.

But we’re also experts in carrying out luxurious and visually impressive transformations that can turn great houses into stunning homes – and nowhere is this more true than with our kitchen design and installation service.

If you’re thinking about having a new kitchen this year and want to make sure that it isn’t just a practical workspace but also somewhere that looks amazing and reflects the very best in modern design, you’re in the right place. We have the creative and practical skills to bring the latest kitchen trends and colours into your home.

Here are just some of the big kitchen design trends we’re seeing in 2024.

Bold colours

Usually the place for traditional browns, austere greys and minimalist whites, kitchens are now seeing more bright and bold colours, whether that’s in the form of a statement splashback, strongly patterned flooring or brightly painted cabinetry. If the rest of the house can reflect your personality with the colours you like, then why should the kitchen miss out? 

Kitchen colour trends in 2024 are not just about brighter spaces, however, as many people are going in completely the other direction by emphasising darker colours – in fact, Magnet has reported that black is its fastest-growing cabinet colour!

Sustainable luxury

The kitchen is increasingly seen as the hub of family life, while the popularity of open-plan living means that it’s also being used for entertaining more than ever before. That means we want it to look amazing in the same way that our living rooms used to get all the attention.

At the same time, we’re all more concerned to use sustainable materials wherever possible. But, for too long, sustainable and luxurious have been considered separate – even incompatible – concepts. Well, no more, because in 2024 homeowners are demanding and getting amazing kitchens that meet both these requirements.

Induction cooking

Induction cooking has been around for a while, but the massive hike in gas prices over the last few years combined with a demand for more sustainable living means that this fast and safe means of cooking is increasingly in demand with savvy customers. Induction cooking can use 70% less energy than traditional methods of cooking; meanwhile, because the ring cools down immediately after a pan is removed, there is also a much reduced risk of burns and accidents.

Subtle lighting

We need overhead lighting when we’re cooking in order to see what we’re doing, while other lighting solutions often need to be incorporated to reflect the more flexible and versatile uses many of our kitchens have these days. But more subtle background lighting is being introduced to more kitchens to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

From sconces and under-cabinet lighting to attractive downlights rather than statement pendants, today’s kitchen lighting is as much about creating an aesthetic glow as it is about being able to see what we’re doing! 

Islands to treasure

If you have the space, then an island is about as desirable as it gets for the modern kitchen. No longer intended as merely practical food preparation areas and social gathering spots, kitchen islands in 2024 are being designed in such a way that they make a significant statement and represent a far more impressive transition from cooking to living areas.

Today’s kitchen islands use split-level countertops, integrated banquette seating and display shelving to create a whole new furniture concept as much as a functional workspace.


Here at Highline Design & Build, we design and build stunning kitchens for customers in Egham, Twickenham, Weybridge and beyond that reflect their daily needs as much as the latest kitchen trends. Whatever you want from your new kitchen, you can be sure that we can find the right solution that meets your hopes and aspirations.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
