Full Home Renovation Trends 2024: Home Reno Ideas Worth Considering

Full Home Renovation Trends 2024: Home Reno Ideas Worth Considering

It’s official. Australians love a good home renovation. In fact, according to research by Compare the Market, Australia ranks third in the world for interest in house renovations per capita. And while our love affair with renovating is nothing new (we did just see Season 19 of The Block go to air!), the reasons why we choose to renovate are beginning to evolve. 

With mortgage rates continuing to climb and property prices spiking, many families are opting for a full home renovation rather than attempting to buy or build a new home. HIA Senior Economist Tom Devitt believes that this renovation renaissance is largely due to how the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we view our homes. “Australians are putting a higher value on their home environment, demanding more space and amenity,” he says.

The key to a successful home renovation is in the planning. So, if you’re considering a reno project in 2024, here are some home renovation ideas to keep in mind. 

Key Trends in 2024 for a Full Home Renovation

Modern design trends are now focusing on enhanced comfort, greater individualism and improved sustainability. With that in mind, here are some full home renovation ideas to embrace in 2024:

  • Authenticity

For over a decade now we’ve seen a focus on homogenised home interiors. The most popular trends for home renovations were centred on designs that were modern, simplistic and neutral. We’re now starting to see a shift away from this kind of standardisation in favour of more unique interiors. In 2024, we expect to see homeowners placing greater emphasis on authenticity, individualism and comfort.

  • Smart Home Integration

One of the biggest shifts in interior design recently has been the inclusion of smart home technologies. Automated lighting, voice-activated assistants and smart appliances are just a few of the technologies that are now becoming standard in a home reno.

  • Sustainable Living Spaces

With 81% of Australians now concerned about climate change, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a greater appreciation for sustainable living. Smart choices made during the initial planning stages of a house renovation can go a long way towards improving the overall energy efficiency of a home. With the growing availability of eco-friendly products and “greener” materials, it’s becoming easier and more affordable to achieve a sustainable home reno.  

Kitchen Home Renovation Ideas

Kitchens remain one of the most popular areas within the home to renovate, something that is expected to remain unchanged in 2024. Some kitchen design trends to look out for over the coming year include:  

  • Customised Features

Many families are now choosing kitchen design features that are tailored to them personally. This could be in the form of a statement splashback, a highly functional kitchen island or bespoke cabinetry.

  • Mixed Material Finishes

Home renos are now incorporating a blend of materials to create a more complex and personalised finish. By incorporating timber, metal or stone elements, you can achieve a kitchen design that is both modern and timeless.

Bathroom Renovation Trends

If you’re planning to include the bathroom in your 2024 full home renovation, why not consider including:

  • Luxury Finishes

One of the biggest design trends for bathrooms post-COVID has been the creation of a spa-like oasis within the home. The inclusion of a few high-end finishes (luxe tiling, a rainfall showerhead or a double vanity) can turn even the simplest of bathroom designs into an opulent sanctuary.

  • Statement Bathtubs and Showers

Another popular home renovation idea for the bathroom is the addition of eye-catching tubs or showers. A double, walk-in shower with feature tiling and a steam function or an oversized freestanding bathtub can give your bathroom that added “wow” factor.
