Tips for Designing a Timeless Kitchen
Posted on: 2022-05-17
When it comes to redesigning your kitchen, there’s a lot that goes into this type of renovation. From appliances to cabinets and countertops, it can be an expensive endeavor.
In fact, an average total kitchen renovation can cost around $10,000. So if it’s time to update your kitchen, you want to make sure to incorporate timeless designs that won’t go out of style!
Not only are timeless designs aesthetically pleasing but using them means that it’ll be many, many years before you feel the need to renovate your kitchen again.
So why not check out these timeless kitchen designs that will give you the most bang for your buck? We promise you won’t be cringing at your kitchen anytime in the near future!
If you want to give your kitchen a classic look, stick to natural materials such as wood and stone.
These can easily be incorporated into custom cabinets and countertops, giving your kitchen a timeless feel while guaranteeing longevity and durability.
Many homeowners opt for stainless steel to get an ultra-modern look, but these trends are not a surefire way to maintain a pleasing decor over a long period of time.
So we know that your kitchen walls can easily be painted to match changing trends but stick to neutral colors when it comes to the other elements in this room.
For instance, white kitchens are often seen as boring, but sticking to white and other neutral colors for your cabinets, countertops, appliances, and flooring means that you can easily change the decor in your kitchen without investing in new and expensive pieces.
Plus, white is not the only neutral you can use. In fact, there are multiple shades of white you can choose from as well as other neutral colors in the brown and grey families.
Subways tiles have proven to be timeless in kitchens – they’ve been around for centuries! This decor element is versatile and can be seen in both modern and traditional kitchen renovations.
And you don’t have to stick to white! Subway tiles can be personalized by choosing different colors of tile and grout. White on white gives a sleek design, while neutral tiles can add some character.
Even though trendy backsplashes are tempting, bold and funky shapes and colors will likely go out of style in a few years.
Subway tile is a great way to create a classic backsplash and a timeless look in your kitchen.
Earlier, we mentioned using natural elements in your kitchen redesign but it’s worth mentioning the beauty of stone countertops!
Stone countertops can be made of quartz or granite, creating a durable and easy-to-clean surface.
You can choose neutral colors for your stone countertop to match your timeless kitchen decor, and you can easily change the colors around the room in the future.
There’s a reason you’ll find shaker-style cabinets in many kitchen renovations – they never go out of style! Shaker-style cabinets can easily fit into both modern and traditional designs.
These cabinets are easy to keep clean and have a simple aesthetic that can be customized with different hardware styles.
Speaking of different hardware styles, you can also create a timeless look in your kitchen by using brass accents – especially when paired with all-white or neutral colors.
Consider brass cabinet pulls or even larger pieces like a brass farmhouse sink. Brass accents are functional and come in a variety of styles.
You can use these pieces to create a rustic, modern, or vintage look.
Wood or Stone Flooring
Again, let’s talk about natural materials! For your kitchen floors, wood and stone provide a timeless look while adding character and warmth to your decor.
Hardwood floors are beautiful and long-lasting, while stone provides a textured element and works well with in-floor heating.
Your kitchen renovations aren’t complete without the right type of lighting! However, long gone are the days of pendant lights so to create a timeless kitchen look, opt for recessed lights.
You can also add lights under your cabinets!
Look for lights with fixtures made of warm materials such as brass or black. Plus, you should choose larger lights to maximize the visibility of your kitchen.
