Home is where the heart is, more like home is where the kitchen is. From family gatherings and cookouts to happy hour and everything in between, we know that a kitchen truly makes a home. While an effortless all-white kitchen will never go out of style, trends are showing that homeowners in 2024 are daring to break the status-quo, opting for warm and eclectic colors. Feeling inspired? Read below to get ahead start on your kitchen renovation and add a pop of color to your Charleston home.

Earthy tones. Warm and natural colors are on the rise, with many designers encouraging clients to try greens, greige and nautral wood tones. Several shades of green have been on trend for years, with no promise of disappearing anytime soon. Shades of green and other earthy tones create a peaceful environment and invite comfort into any space. Relax and unwind in your newly designed space while you dine on your favorite dish.

Mellow Yellow. Consider inviting subtle shades of the sunny hue into your home. Butter yellow and pale peach are historic colors that truly never go out of style. Pay homage to Pantone’s 2024 color of the year, peach fuzz, with a fresh coat of paint in your kitchen. Warm shades of yellow pair perfectly with antique accents and wicker details.

Rich Shades. Moody, dramatic colors will set the tone and transform your kitchen into a cozy and sleek space, ideal for hosting guests. From mauve to grey, forest green, black and charcoal, don’t shy away from opting for a bold color scheme for your kitchen. Floral patterns and marble detail work both complement rich shades if you’re looking to elevate your space even further. Dare to be different with an edgy, yet homey kitchen that will have your guests vying for their next dinner invitation.

Blue on blue. Blue is the universal color of serenity, so why not invite notes of tranquility into your kitchen. Food has a long history of bringing a sense of comfort, familiarity and connection with ourselves and the ones we love most. Whether you opt for a shade of baby blue or navy blue, the details in your kitchen are sure to pop. If you can’t decide on a shade, because there’s just too many options, try a blue on blue color scheme for a monochromatic, coastal look.

Creating a warm and welcoming, yet aesthetically pleasing kitchen is an important task for any homeowner. By incorporating a pop of color into your favorite space, you’re sure to evoke feelings of happiness and comfort that will match the energy of the cuisine you’re enjoying. Your kitchen is true reflection of yourself and with that comes the creativity to let your imagination run wild!
