Top 5 Kitchen Worktop Trends for 2024


Deciding on new kitchen worktop designs is no simple task. It takes time, research and patience to ensure you choose your ideal material and colour scheme. Whether you’re undertaking a complete renovation of your kitchen or want to add just a splash of something new, getting it right isn’t just about looking good either, it’s got to function well.

We’ve got the help you need. And with this guide, we’ll tell you all about the ‘in’ kitchen worktop trends for 2024. You’ll be one step closer to having the kitchen of your dreams.

5. Marvellous Marble

Marble evokes a sense of classical luxury in any home. We’ve put it at the start of our list because people’s passion for marble hasn’t really gone away and has stayed in peoples’ minds – and kitchens- for the past several decades. With marble kitchen worktops, you’ll benefit from a material that arouses cultural tradition and refined taste. Marble kitchen worktops are available in a wide variety of colours to suit your design preferences. Just be sure to be careful when wiping up any spillages as marble can sometimes be difficult to maintain. Fancy the aesthetics of marble without the difficulties of maintenance that come with it? You can get beautiful marble effect worktops in alternative easy to care for materials such as quartz, porcelain or sintered stone.

4. Contrasting Colour Schemes

Choosing a colour scheme can sometimes make or break your kitchen’s aesthetics. It can be a challenge to know which colour worktop is best for your kitchen. Kitchens often look their most dynamic with several colours implemented across one of the most important rooms in your home. Think about your favourite colours and what you think will look good for your kitchen. Fortunately, the ample choice of materials for kitchen worktops, like marble, granite or even sintered stone can come in a host of colours. A new emerging trend is to go for a completely alternative colour for your splashbacks and surrounding walls to truly give your kitchen a visual that pops with different shades and hues. Pair black with white, dark blues with lighter shades of grey or perhaps go with earthy greens and browns.

3. Minimalist Worktops

Kitchen worktops don’t always have to be intricately designed with patterns that look more confusing than a Jackson Pollock painting. A big kitchen worktop trend for 2024 is a minimalist look, creating a modern, contemporary aesthetic for your kitchen. But what are the best materials to achieve this look? Well, we recommend opting for either porcelain or quartz as both offer a luxurious finish with some choices featuring unique textures while other options showcase that streamlined, clean and minimalist aesthetic. This sleek design trend will help to maintain that uncluttered spectacle you’re after and can implement concealed storage and appliances.

2. Splendid Splashbacks and Unbeatable Upstands

Our number two spot for kitchen worktop trends in 2024 is to install splashbacks and upstands that complement your worktops and overall kitchen aesthetics. A kitchen splashback can be placed almost anywhere in your kitchen but is most commonly installed over your hob area or kitchen sink to protect your wall from grease stains, water marks and other spillages. Stone or glass splashbacks are not only the ideal material for splendid splashbacks, but they are emerging as the trending materials for homes in the UK. Implementing splashbacks as well as an upstand can elevate your kitchen to a whole new level. Upstands are thin strips of stone fitted to the wall directly behind your kitchen worktops that offer a seamless visual and help to create an optimal seal between your work surface and wall, helping to stop spillages from leaking into your cabinets. Upstands are typically the same design and colour as your worktop and can work together with a splashback. Or take advantage of the other 2024 trend of contrasting designs and colours.

1. Sustainable Sintered Stone

In 2024 and beyond, all manner of businesses, materials and everything in between are honing in on sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. So, why not get ahead of the curve and install one of the most eco-friendly materials for your kitchen worktops? Sintered stone is an engineered stone made from a combination of silica, feldspar and quartz, with a sprinkling of porcelain and glass. Sintered stone is highly recyclable making it one of the most sustainable materials on the market for kitchen worktops. On top of this, homeowners will benefit from easy maintenance thanks to this material being non-porous, making it ideal for any type of kitchen environment. Sintered stone kitchen worktops also look visually spectacular and mimic the look of granite and marble.
