2024 Home Decor Trends: Tips from RONA on How to Get the Looks for Less

Sailun Tires

You don’t have to spend a fortune to give your home a stylish lift in 2024.

Making small decor swaps to incorporate the latest trends can instantly infuse new life into your living space, shares leading home improvement retailer RONA.

“It’s all about doing more with less, and there are simple ways to give your home a refresh and get this year’s fashionable looks without breaking the bank,” said Lydia Thammavong, Head Design, Styles & Trends at RONA.

Think quick and easy home improvements, such as applying stick-on backsplash tiles or peel-and-stick wallpaper, painting walls, cupboards or ceramic tiles, and updating decor accessories, light fixtures, door handles, or appliances.

“Design trends in 2024 are all about making homes more cozy and visually interesting,” Thammavong said. She explained that RONA has made it foolproof for homeowners to incorporate this year’s five popular home decor trends into their rooms by offering a wide selection of stylish, budget-friendly items that correspond with each theme.

The five trends – Old Brit CharmQuiet LuxuryHeritageRetro Modern and Dopamine Decor – cater to a wide range of tastes and RONA’s products can be mixed and matched according to individual preferences, Thammavong said. She suggests these star items as starting points to incorporate elements of each look.

Old Brit Charm

This traditional decorating style builds on the Cottagecore theme that has been taking the design world by storm, but emits a more bourgeois, less rustic vibe. Inspired by the Victorian era, Old Brit Charm embraces the beauty of the past, creating calm, romantic spaces that exude character, coziness, and nostalgia. Taking centre stage are natural materials, including dark brown and walnut wood, stone, antique metal, and ceramic, highlighted in decor elements such as pottery and brass accessories, antique gold hardware and light fixtures, floral and oriental motif wool rugs, textured wall coverings, beveled mirrors, and dried flowers and branches.

Quiet Luxury

Quiet Luxury is all about minimalism, understated elegance, and bringing warmth into the home with a simple, relaxed, and clutter-free aesthetic. This trend is characterized by a muted colour palette of soothing neutrals – from off-white and natural tints to greyish greens, light browns, and greige – sleek craftsmanship, soft curves, layered textures, and natural materials. White oak matte finishes, stone veining, statement mirrors, and brushed and matte metal elevate the look.

A cross between traditional Old Brit Charm and modern, minimalistic Quiet Luxury, the Heritage trend combines formal and ornate elements with simple, relaxed touches to create living spaces that are a mix of classic and current. Timeless, warm and cozy, this style exudes elegance, using natural materials and pairing taupes, tans and vanillas with dark brown or black to create striking looks. Decor touches such as embellished wall and ceiling details, matte finishes mixed with metallic accents, walnut wood, marble stone veining, antique and brushed gold finishes, and matte black wallpaper bring out the best of this theme.
