Top Knobs’ Top 2024 Kitchen and Cabinetry Trends

Has the start of the new year stirred up the idea of renovating your kitchen or refreshing cabinetry? Keeping up with emerging fads can be challenging, but is essential for curating spaces that are both visually appealing and highly functional. Start planning your next home project with our  guide to 2024’s top kitchen and cabinetry trends!

Cheers to Dedicated Beverage Centers!

From the first cup of coffee in the morning to a relaxing happy hour cocktail, dedicated beverage centers are taking over modern kitchens. Homeowners are seeking ways to efficiently store, access and prepare an array of drinks such as coffee, lattes, wine, cocktails and more. These beverage centers often include appliances like espresso machines, in-cabinet mini-fridges and ice makers.

Beverage centers are strategically positioned near living rooms and entertainment areas for seamless and convenient hosting. To create cohesion between these ancillary spaces and the kitchen, we recommend decorating with the same cabinetry and decorative hardware. With an extensive array of knobs and pulls in a number of sizes we offer perfect pieces to establish impeccable balance.

Green with Envy

The desire to connect our homes with nature is here to stay in 2024. Expect to see kitchen aesthetics to shy away from neutral, monotone palettes and lean towards softer, Earthy tones, with green leading the way. From shades of sage to emerald, green is the dominant choice for cabinetry this year. For flawless harmony, consider pairing green cabinetry with hardware in our Honey Bronze finish.

Tactile Textures

Many designers and homeowners are veering away from exclusively smooth surfaces and instead are embracing raw finishes and tactile details. By integrating a range of textures like fluted materials and knurled detailing, basic kitchen designs are transforming into dynamic environments. Our latest addition to the Top Knobs family, the Garrison Collection, features six suites of knobs, pulls, appliance pulls and backplates, each piece featuring knurled texture. It’s the perfect choice for those looking to add coarse finishes into their next refresh or remodel.

Contrasting Cabinets

Looking to infuse color into your kitchen but unsure of where to begin? Using cabinets with contrasting tones is a simple way to introduce color into your space without overwhelming the whole room. Straying away from the shade on the main cabinets, designers and homeowners are now selecting a more striking hue for the island cabinets. We recommend also incorporating a variety of knobs and pulls for added visual intrigue.

Out with White, In with Wood!

In 2024, the all-white kitchen trend is undeniably on the decline. Instead, there’s been a shift to wood tones for added warmth and structure. Throughout kitchen designs, we’re seeing a resurgence of wood accents among cabinetry, flooring and architectural detailing. Opting for lighter wood finishes like white oak or natural oak is ideal to ensure your choice remains contemporary and isn’t outdated. We suggest pairing lighter wood cabinetry with hardware in our Flat Black finish.

Summer 2023 Design Trends to Follow | Top Knobs

The weather’s getting warmer, the days are getting longer and the water is getting clearer. Summertime is finally here! In celebration of the official start of summer, we’re sharing the hottest trends that are a must to follow this season.

Mixed Metal Finishes

Say goodbye to single-tone finishes. This summer, we expect to see more mixing and matching of fixture finishes throughout the whole home! Combining multiple metals in the same room adds a layer of visual interest while upping the design ante with contemporary flair.  Looking for an easy way to incorporate this trend into your home? Try our Bit Pulls.

Coastal Colors

Summer brings brighter days, fresh greenery and savory sensations of the crisp ocean air. Why not reflect the beautiful shades of nature in your home? This season, the color story taking center stage is a coastal-inspired palette. We’re expecting to see all the seafoam greens and classic blues taking over indoor and outdoor spaces. Not only is this color scheme perfect for adding a dose of the seaside to a room, natural color schemes can reduce stress, increase productivity and creativity and make you feel overall more happy!

A Stripe of Pattern

A timeless summertime staple, stripes are a classic summer trend that will never go out of style. Whether you’re refreshing the living room with a striped throw or adding a new striped rug to your outdoor patio, linear patterns can infuse energy into any space. Looking for the perfect hardware to compliment your summer style? Try the Top Knobs Selection Tool.

Light, Bright & White!

What’s a more enduring look than white? There’s no better time than summer to refresh a room with bright, white walls!  Adding this milky hue to interiors establishes a clean, light feeling while also making a room feel much larger than it is. White walls also lend the perfect backdrop for colorful artwork, furniture and statement decorative accents, making it the perfect canvas if your style is always changing for the season. For a stunning contrast, try mixing our Flat Black finish with your white cabinetry and walls.

Natural Materials

Bringing elements of nature indoors gives an organic touch to spaces. This summer, we anticipate a rise in the use of raw materials. Natural fabrics like linen and cotton will grace interiors such as curtains, throw pillows and furniture upholstery. While cabinets and furniture enhanced by warm wooden textures create a welcoming atmosphere. Looking for hardware to complement natural materials?

7 Steps to Achieving the Kitchen Island of Your Dreams

Improve your kitchen functionality with a few simple additions

The workhorse. The dining table. The desk. The prep station. Today, kitchen islands have become more than just a focal point – they’ve become the center of activity. Making prep work, entertaining, and dining easier than ever, the kitchen island provides endless functionality. And the best part? You don’t have to sacrifice beauty. It can be both functional AND beautiful.

From under-counter storage and housing your appliances to stylish small details like mix and matching hardware, you can take your kitchen island from workable and efficient, to sleek and stunning.

Check out our tips below on how to create a dreamy kitchen island:

It’s All in the Details

Is your style more traditional, modern, minimalist, or transitional? Do you prefer bold accents or subtle charm? No matter what you love, make sure you choose hardware that perfectly complements your style. With knobs, pulls and appliance pulls available in over 25 collections and 30 finish options, choose from endless decorative pieces to help create the ultimate focal point.

The Modern Metro tab pulls shown in Flat Black is a sleek showstopper.

Decorative Hooks and Storage

No one likes a cluttered countertop…right? Consider adding a few well-positioned hooks under your island counter to add a decorative yet purposeful touch, allowing you to hang backpacks, small pots, or other items, all while freeing up counter space.

The Ryland collection of decorative hooks offers added personality and storage to your space in familiar styles that complement some of Top Knobs’ most popular decorative hardware pieces.

Seating

For some homeowners, island seating is an informal area used for quick meals and to connect with whoever is in the kitchen. For others, it’s a more formal area where many meals are shared. No matter how you use your kitchen island seating, we recommend keeping the following in mind whenever choosing new seating: chair height, comfort, and style.

These gold metal bar chairs are the perfect complement to this kitchen island. The bronze finish brings a pop of color to this traditional kitchen and perfectly pairs with Top Knobs’ Honey Bronze hardware that adorns the cabinetry, while the height and spacing leave enough room for guests to sit comfortably.

Storage

Being the central hub, it’s only natural for the kitchen island to become a drop zone for everything from books and laptops, to schoolbags and snacks. Adding additional storage like a small bookshelf or cubby helps keep items neatly stowed away and organized.

Cabinetry

While the options for cabinetry seem to be endless, have fun exploring customization options that help make your island yours. Taking the time to add extra detail to your cabinetry like glass panels and column legs, to bold colors and open shelving creates the perfect opportunity to have your island shine in the kitchen.

One trend we love is incorporating a pop of color – the contrast of the white kitchen cabinets and black kitchen island creates a neutrally cohesive, yet stunning look.

Integrated Appliances

You’ve chosen the perfect countertop, but do you really want to clutter it with appliances? For a real space saver, we recommend integrating appliances like a microwave or wine fridge into your island to maximize space and storage.

And for an easy and stunning upgrade, swap your appliance pulls for a perfectly matched look throughout the kitchen. Our Regents Park and Morris collections offer robust ranges of styles and finishes, allowing you to take customization to the next level.

Mix & Match Hardware

A simple, yet subtle, design choice to elevate your cabinetry even further is to mix and match your decorative hardware. The combination of knobs, bar pulls, and cup pulls, can give your island a slightly different look and feel without straying too far from your kitchen’s overall design.

Our go-to favorite, the Channing Series, offers knobs, pulls, cup pulls, and backplates that can be combined to establish a cohesive look.
