Are you planning to redesign your closet or home organization system in 2024? If so, you might be wondering how to balance the latest trends with a timeless style that will last for years. After all, you don’t want to invest your hard-earned money into a closet that will look outdated or out of place in a few months.

To help you plan your next home project, let’s take a closer look at what’s trending for 2024 and how to incorporate each idea into your vision.

Go Green with Sustainable Materials

One of the biggest trends for 2024 is sustainability. More and more people are becoming conscious of the environmental impact of their choices, and this is reflected in their closet design and organization preferences.

Natasha Shtapauk, Brand Ambassador and Lead Designer for BauTeam, says that she’s noticed a decrease in clients opting for solid wood and shaker doors. Instead, they’re opting for laminated panels instead.

This trend could be due to the fact that this material is more durable; with longer lasting doors this means having to replace them less frequently. Which in turn means they’re more sustainable and better for the environment.

Another way to achieve sustainability in your closet is to use recycled or reclaimed materials, such as metal, glass, or wood. These materials can add a unique and rustic touch to your closet, while also reducing waste and saving resources. You can also opt for eco-friendly paints, finishes, and fabrics that are low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and harmful chemicals.

Incorporating Colors While Still Staying Neutral

Neutral colors, such as white, beige, gray, and black, are always a safe and classic choice for your closet. They can create a clean and spacious look, and they can match with any style and decor. However, adding a pop of color is becoming a popular way to make any given room more appealing and interesting.

One way to add color to your closet is to use Pantone’s color of the year, Peach Fuzz. This warm, subtle, neutral hue can softly light up any space and create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. You can use Peach Fuzz for your walls, shelves, drawers, or accessories, such as baskets, bins, or hangers.

Another way to add color to your closet is to use contrasting or complementary colors for your accents, such as knobs, handles, or hooks. For example, you can use a bright blue or green to contrast with a white or gray closet, or a soft pink or purple to complement a beige or brown closet.

Show Off Your Style with Open Shelving

Another trend for 2024 is open shelving. Open shelving is a great way to:

  1. Showcase your items
  2. Make them easily accessible
  3. Create a minimalist and functional look

However, open shelving also requires more maintenance and cleaning, as your items are exposed to dust and dirt. You also need to be careful about what you put on your open shelves, as they can easily become cluttered and messy. To avoid these pitfalls, we suggest using open shelving strategically and sparingly in your closet.

Keep It Clean and Modern with Flat Front Doors

Many people are realizing the value of having flat, front doors, especially in their laundry rooms.

For example, this photo is from a recent project we completed for a client in the Greater Philadelphia area. The empty space on the left is where the washer and dryer will eventually live.

Having flat front doors in the laundry room makes for very easy cleanup because there are no little crevices on the front like you would find in molded and shaker doors. It’s a super “clean” and modern look.

Flat, front doors are not only great for laundry rooms but also closets. They can create a sleek and streamlined look, and they can also sometimes save space by eliminating the need for handles or knobs.
