2024 is here and it’s the perfect time to tackle the renovations you’ve been planning for months. Luckily for you, we’ve got all of the home improvement trends covered so you can make some serious impact in your home this year. Whether you’re thinking of changing your paint color or installing a Plungie, we’ve got plenty of ideas to suit all lifestyles, skill levels, and budgets. Let’s take a look at the renovation trends that you’ll be seeing everywhere in 2024!
2024 Pool Trends
Tanning ledges, sun shelves, baja shelves — whatever you want to call them, they’re in for 2024! A tanning ledge is a large, shallow bench space at the entry of a pool that allows you to lounge in the sun while still enjoying the water. Not only are tanning ledges perfect for relaxing, but they’re also a great spot for the little ones to play.
All of our pool models offer generous bench space, so you can easily achieve this trend with Plungie. As the world’s largest monolithic pre-cast concrete swimming pool, the Plungie Max offers a luxurious 46 sq ft bench space — plenty of room for soaking up the rays with friends and family. Just don’t forget your sunblock!
Smart Pool Maintenance
Smart technology integrations aren’t just for the home. In 2024, more homeowners are enhancing their lifestyle and integrating technology into their pools too!
At the top of the list is automated maintenance that would otherwise take up valuable hours on your weekends. Many homeowners are investing in robotic pool cleaners that allow them to set-and-forget their pool maintenance. With smart features including weekly timers, built-in navigation and active scrubbing technology available, a robotic cleaner will help keep your pool sparkling all year round without you having to lift a finger.
Automated pool maintenance doesn’t stop there though. With our Smart ECO Equipment Package, you can even manage your water quality via WiFi connectivity. With these smart pool integrations, you can spend less time cleaning your pool and more time enjoying it.
Eco-Friendly Pool Designs
Increased interest in sustainability is also set to influence pool ownership in 2024, with more homeowners choosing energy-efficient heating options. Concrete is a great insulator, so Plungies can help reduce energy consumption by retaining heat for longer.
If you’re looking to reduce the overall carbon footprint of your home improvement project — we’ve got the solution for you. Independent lifecycle analysis shows that Plungies have a 41% lower carbon footprint than traditional concrete pools. This is a cradle-to-grave analysis, so takes into consideration everything from raw materials and manufacturing, to transport and end-of-life recycling.
2024 Outdoor Design Trends
The Japandi outdoor style trend is appearing in backyards everywhere, and for good reason. Combining Japanese minimalism with Scandinavian coziness, Japandi style is perfect for those who want to create a tranquil outdoor space. By using natural materials like wood and stone, you can create a beautiful, yet functional oasis.
We were proud to be the official Pool Supplier of The Block 2023, one of Australia's most popular renovation reality television series. Steph and Gian’s winning backyard on The Block is the perfect example of Japandi style, with stone, wood, and bamboo incorporated into the space. They also embraced our next 2024 outdoor design trend in their backyard by creating a wellness hub at home.
Wellness Hubs At Home
Homeowners are bringing their favorite amenities to their backyard in 2024 with their very own wellness hubs. Whether it’s a cold plunge pool or spa, we’re seeing more outdoor spaces designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. With add-ons like our pool heaters and spa jet packages, you can get the best of both worlds with Plungie. Steph and Gian nailed this trend in House 4, with the addition of a private backyard sauna next to their Plungie Original.
Low Water Usage Landscapes
As part of increased eco-consciousness in 2024, more homeowners are designing landscapes that minimize the need for irrigation, otherwise known as ‘xeriscaping’. You can embrace this trend with popular xeriscaping materials including drought-tolerant plants, rocks, and mulch.

Tile & Fixture Upgrades
The bathroom is one of the first rooms in the home to show its age, which is why many homeowners are choosing to update their bathroom tiles and fixtures in 2024. Water-saving taps and shower heads are set to be a priority for homeowners when completing their bathroom facelift.
In 2024, homeowners are maximizing their living spaces by transforming them into multifunctional rooms. These multipurpose spaces will ensure your home keeps up with your evolving needs. Plus, they help show the versatility of your home to potential tenants or buyers. Popular room combinations include:
- Laundry Room & Mud Room
- Guest Room & Study
- Living Room & Library
