If you're thinking about remodeling your kitchen, you might be leaning towards updating it with a modern and trendy look. But remodeling your kitchen is an investment, and updating it with a timeless style can keep it from looking dated 10 or even 20 years from now. Create a kitchen that never goes out of style and provides the best return on investment using these timeless trends.
White is a timeless color because it provides a clean and neutral look. While the bright turquoise and yellow color schemes of today's modern kitchens might cause you to cringe in 10 years, you'll always be happy with white cabinets and other elements. Pair your kitchen with a neutral paint color on the walls, and you can accessorize in any way you'd like to bring in that modern pop of color.
Consider getting your cabinets in Shaker style. This look is sleek and inoffensive while providing a soft design element that's more exciting than just standard cabinets. The recessed panel doors will give your kitchen a nice pop.
Marble has been used as a decorative element for thousands of years, so there's really no chance of it going out of style any time soon. It provides a regal and sophisticated look that pairs well with other neutral colors. Best of all, marble is currently big in modern trends, so it's actually a win-win element.
Creating storage in an open-plan kitchen is tricky, but essential. You want a functional kitchen, not just a showroom, right? Add enough shelving, drawers, and hooks so that you'll have room for all your kitchen essentials.
Today's kitchens are sometimes so sleek, they forget to add drawers and cabinets. Make sure design incorporates as many of these elements as possible. Add them to the base of an island, on the walls, or anywhere else there is space.
Wood is another design element that's always in style. Other popular kitchen flooring options, such as tile or vinyl, might look tacky in a few years. Wood, on the other hand, maintains its natural luster beautifully while being easy to clean.
Farmhouse sinks are extremely convenient because they have enough room for all your dishes and then some. Plus, their neutral palette meshes well with other design elements in the kitchen.
While stainless steel is big now, the trend might not last forever. Take care of that by integrating your appliances into your kitchen's existing theme. That way, you'll never have to worry about aesthetics when choosing the appliances you want.
Clearly, designing a timeless kitchen does require a lot of thought - perhaps even more than designing a kitchen based on modern trends. Luckily, David Gray Design Studio is here to help. Contact us today to start planning your dream kitchen by calling 904-224-5971.
